It's official, and its hard to believe.
Super Bowl XLIV is only 100 days away from kicking off in South Florida for a record-breaking 10th time. There is no doubt that it all builds up from here. We may not know which two teams will face off on February 7th, 2010, but we do know it will be a showdown for the ages.

Put these two together and South Florida will be the Mecca of the pro sports world in just a few months. Fans from all around will descend on Dolphin Stadium to rejoice in the spectacle of two prime time sporting events. It will truly be a memorable moment in South Florida history.

A huge honor for South Florida Super Bowl Host Committee Chairman Rodney Barreto.
He has been awarded the Key to the City of Miami in recognition of his leadership.
The honor was presented at City Hall on Thursday October 22 by Miami Mayor Manny Diaz.
It honors Mr. Barretto for being the driving force behind several South Florida Super Bowls and the annual Big Orange New Year's Eve Celebration, among many other accomplishments. Besides his role as Chairman of the Super Bowl Host Committee, Mr. Barreto is also Chairman of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
The Host Committee is proud to be recognized through the leadership of Mr. Barreto and will continue to put all of our efforts towards preparing South Florida for two of the biggest games in all of American sports: Pro Bowl 2010 and Super Bowl XLIV.
It's hard to believe. Kickoff for the 2010 Pro Bowl is only 100 days away!
(That also means Super Bowl XLIV is only 107 days from now.)

It's already week seven of the season and teams have begun to pan out as contenders and pretenders. The New Orleans Saints have enjoyed great success with their undefeated start to the year. They face off against a tough Miami Dolphins team with the dynamic Wildcat offense in their arsenal. And the Host Committee will be at Land Shark Stadium continuing our campaign to promote Pro Bowl 2010 and Super Bowl XLIV.
Over the course of three Miami Dolphins home games, we have distributed in excess of 600 media guides to local, national and international media members. In particular, two Monday Night Football match-ups have been the highlights of our efforts, when the Dolphins played against the Indianapolis Colts and New York Jets - two teams with plenty of playoff potential.
Now on Sunday, the attention stays on South Florida as another legitimate postseason team marches into town. No matter the outcome of the Saints-Dolphins game, there will be plenty of excitement on both sides from teams with high playoff hopes.
Rest assured, there will be a small reminder lying on the desktops of the media members pointing at the reality that Super Bowl will be coming back to South Florida for a record-breaking 10th time, coupled with the Pro Bowl just one week before.
There is no doubt that there will be plenty of buzz surrounding Sunday afternoon at the game.

The Pro Bowl had been played annually since 1980 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii the week following the Super Bowl. The Pro Bowl will return to Hawaii for the 2011 and 2012 games.
The 2010 Pro Bowl will be the first played prior to the Super Bowl and only the second Pro Bowl played in the same city as the Super Bowl. The Los Angeles Coliseum hosted the first Super Bowl on January 15, 1967 and the Pro Bowl the following week.
LARRY FITZGERALD of the Arizona Cardinals was last year’s Pro Bowl MVP. Fitzgerald caught two touchdown passes, including the go-ahead score with 4:03 remaining, as the NFC rallied to defeat the AFC, 30-21, in front of a sold-out crowd at Aloha Stadium. The Vikings’ ADRIAN PETERSON led the NFC in rushing with 48 yards on 8 carries and one touchdown. ELI (New York Giants) and PEYTON MANNING (Indianapolis Colts) were the first brother quarterbacks to play against each other in the Pro Bowl. Eli completed 8 of 14 passes for 111 yards and one touchdown. Peyton was 12 of 17 for 151 yards and one touchdown.
The AFC and NFC squads are each comprised of 42 players with 21 offensive and 17 defensive players plus four specialists. A 43rd “need” player will be chosen by the head coach and must be a cornerback, defensive end, linebacker or long snapper. The coaching staffs of the losing teams in the AFC and NFC Divisional playoffs with the best regular season record will serve as the coaching staffs of the AFC and NFC teams.
During this inaugural blood drive, participants will get to meet players, cheerleaders and alumni, get autographs and gain access to a behind-the-scenes look at Land Shark Stadium - including access to the field and tours of the Dolphins locker room.
The first 1,000 registered participants will receive a free ticket to the December 27th Miami Dolphins game against the Houston Texans, a free Miami Dolphins blood drive t-shirt and two $5 Publix coupons, all courtesy of Publix.
