It's true. In about a month and a half, Super Bowl will roll into South Florida for a record-breaking 10th time. It's all gone by so fast, with the NFL regular season quickly drawing to a close and teams positioning themselves for playoff aspirations. To think that in the next forty days we will witness the most deserving AFC and NFC teams in Super Bowl XLIV.

Next week will mark the final chapter in the 2009 NFL season; at the same time it will mark the beginning of the postseason journey few NFL teams will embark on. A journey that will lead to Dolphin Stadium on February 7, 2010 - where fans from all over will descend on to be a part of Super Bowl history.

And let's not forget about Pro Bowl, which will also be coming to South Florida the week before Super Bowl Sunday. For two consecutive weeks, South Florida will be the Mecca of the pro sports world, hosting two tremendous primetime events.

So stay in touch. Next thing you know the NFL's all-stars will be riding into town followed by the AFC and NFC champions. Crazy, but true.

School children are benefiting from the Super Bowl coming back to South Florida. Here's how:

Many of the area's youth are now taking part in the Super Learning in a Super City (SLSC) program. It all started on December 7th, 2010. South Florida Super Bowl Host Committee Chairman Rodney Barreto kicked off the program by saying,"The NFL always makes sure they give back to the Super Bowl Host Community. This program is living proof of that and ensuring our school children benefit makes me especially proud."

This school-based initiative allows students regardless of their socio-economic background or geographic location to join in the excitement surrounding Super Bowl XLIV. Participating teachers now have online access to unique lesson plans with a curriculum that used the Super Bowl as a platform to focus on literacy, character education, community service and environmental awareness. Participants in SLSC are also eligible for prizes and access to exclusive South Florida Super Bowl Host Committee and NFL sanctioned events.

For a tenth straight Super Bowl, the Super Learning program will bring the excitement of this global event into the classrooms and create inspired learning environments to help inspire teachers and engage students. Academic lessons will be integrated with many NFL role models including Vince Lombardi, Tony Dungy, Chuck Noll, and the Miami Dolphins own Jason Taylor.
Creators of the Super Learning Program, Daphne Boyd and Dr. Kathy Oropallo, commented that South Florida is rich in community role models, many of which students can learn from. Super Learning culminates on Super Bowl Sunday on February 7, 2010.

Land Shark Stadium
Monday December 7, 2009

South Florida weather in the winter season: check. A gathering of over 500 attendees at the Host Committee Kickoff Luncheon: check. A keynote address by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell: check plus.

With just two months away from the largest televised sporting event in America, we hosted a luncheon to celebrate the coming of Pro Bowl 2010 and Super Bowl XLIV to South Florida. With the setting of a cool 78-degree sunny day, it was great time to chat about football at Land Shark Stadium.

Some high-profile personalities in attendance included Miami Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross, Miami Dolphins CEO Mike Dee, Minority Owner of the Miami Dolphins Wayne Huizenga, Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Alvarez, along with various local public representatives and Miami Dolphins alumni.

The event was emceed by none other than former Miami Dolphin great Kim Bokamper and Telemundo news anchor Vanessa Huac. It brought the elements of football experience and Hispanic flavor into the festivities as they recapped the upcoming events leading up to Pro Bowl and Super Bowl. After lunch, Kim and Vanessa introduced Super Bowl Host Committee Chairman Rodney Barreto for some brief words of motivation. Thereafter, Mr. Barreto set the stage for the person everyone had been waiting for, Roger Goodell.

Mr. Goodell engaged the audience with an opening speech followed by an interactive Q&A session, wherein audience members submitted questions and the NFL Commissioner chose a few to answer. One question inquired into what South Florida needs to do in order to host future Super Bowls. With a detailed response, Mr. Goodell stated some factors that the NFL looks at when considering potential Super Bowl sites, including what the host city stadiums have to offer. He hinted at regions like Dallas and Indianapolis, which have recently "raised the bar" in stadium technology and accommodation. After all, the stadium is the NFL's stage to showcase the most important game of the season.

Before departing, Mr. Goodell briefly addressed a few members of the media and bid farewell to the audience. It marked the end to an exciting day and a precursor to the prime time events soon to come.

Stay tuned for pictures from the kickoff luncheon. They will be posted to our photo album at with a direct link posted on here as well.
