And they’ve wandered way out of the box.
According to Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post, the Dolphins want to place a U.S. navy aircraft carrier in downtown Miami — aptly titled “Super Bowl Park” — and play a football game on the deck.
The carrier would come retrofitted with a full 120-yard field.
“I imagine they’ll be playing touch football on it, not tackle,” Volin quipped.
NBCMiami.com reports the plan also includes “an interactive video exhibit and extensive transportation plan that includes a water shuttle and railroad that would drop people off near the park.”
“We’ve submitted the best bid that we can in every aspect,” Dolphins CEO Mike Dee said. “From a Dolphins perspective, we’re doing every thing we can.”
Everything but thinking logically, it seems. But, hey, it just might be crazy enough to sway the NFL. We’ll know on May 22, when the locations of the 2016 and 2017 Super Bowls are announced.
