Since the Super Bowl in New York proved to be not a frozen debacle, Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel wants in on the action. In an interview with the Chicago Tribune, the mayor says he’s working to bring the Super Bowl and the NFL draft to the Windy City...
quote:

“I would say that there are two things in pro football I would love to see in Chicago, either one of them or both: the NFL draft and the Super Bowl. They have different advantages for the city given that we have neither one, both would be great attractions for the city to bring national attention. We’ll work on both. There’s something to the draft and there’s something to the Super Bowl. I compliment the NFL for deciding to change to cold-weather cities.”

“… Would a Super Bowl be good for the city and good for the NFL? I think yes. Would having the NFL draft here be good for the city and for the NFL? The answer is yes. The goal is to have a discussion about both.”
Good idea or bad?

Personally, I'd start small and go for a QB in Chicago first, when it comes to "pro football things"...
