Super Bowl XLVIII will be in NEW JERSEY

The Meadowlands Sports complex is located on the west side of the Hudson River.

News 12 New Jersey wants to help make sure that this bit of geographic information is something that isn't forgotten. Local papers The Herald and the Record featured Gov. Christie on the cover of their papers to celebrate the Super Bowl coming to New Jersey. They get it. But other papers, including the Daily News featured pictures of Times Square.

New Jerseyans are heated up over New York taking credit for New Jersey's victory. The Giants and Jets already bear our neighboring state's name. Bergen County Executive Dennis McNerney even has a problem with that. He says "You should just call it the Bergen County Giants and Bergen County Jets." While this name change may not happen any time soon, New Jersey can still claim Super Bowl XLVIII.
