Houston will be hosting Super Bowl LI in 2017 (That's Super Bowl 51). This will be the third Super Bowl to be played in Houston. I remember the last time was Feb 2004 because I was still living in Japan, pregnant and about to have my first baby (Joe was born Feb 5, 2004). I remember wishing I could be in my hometown of Houston to watch the Super Bowl!
Houston was able to win the bid by offering our mighty Reliant Stadium with its retractable roof, enough parking in Reliant Park, enough hotel rooms for the guests, teams, and media, and our wonderful Discovery Green park in downtown for 100,000 people to party at.
