FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - New Orleans is a Super Bowl city again.

NFL owners voted Tuesday to play the 2013 Super Bowl in New
Orleans, the first time the championship game will be played there
since Hurricane Katrina shredded parts of the Louisiana Superdome.
The hurricane caused 1,600 deaths and devastated the Gulf Coast
four years ago.

New Orleans beat out Miami - which sought a record 11th Super Bowl - and 2008 host Glendale, Ariz., for the game. This is the 10th time New Orleans will be the site for the Super Bowl.

New Orleans last hosted in 2002, when Adam Viniateri's 48-yard field goal as time expired lifted New England over St. Louis.
