The staff of ArizonaSports.com has compiled their list
of the top 25 Arizona sports stories of the year 2011.
We’ll be unveiling them over the next couple of weeks, all
leading up to the top story of 2011.

Trice as nice.

The alluring warm temperatures and Arizona sunshine proved
to be too tempting for the Super Bowl committee to turn
down.

The Super Bowl is returning to the Valley of the Sun in
2015, after being awarded the 49th annual game by NFL
owners in October.

Glendale, Arizona won on the second ballot, besting the
only other candidate – Tampa, Florida.

It seems the committee was determined to bring the Super
Bowl back to a warm climate after the 2014 showdown will
be featured in frigid East Rutherford, New Jersey on
February 2.
