it look like the super bowl match up were asking for will happened but sadly a year too late. i know you are asking you self why this super bowl match Chicago and Indy which is going to happen at Super Bowl XLI in Miami on Feb. 4, so why are you saying it a year too late.
Well as you probable well aware last year Super Bowl was held right here in Detroit Rock City at Ford Field with Pittsburgh Steelers winning there fifth Super bowl over the defeated the Seattle Seahawks, 21–10 in one pour play super bowl, but to tell you the Truth it should have been the Indianapolis Colts vs the Chicago Bears, but for those of you the follow NFL Football and the playoff that lead to the super bowl it did not go that way.
Indianapolis(315 miles from Detroit) have the best season in history going 14-2 but they loss to a six seed in eventual Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers after then kicker Mike Vanderjagt 46-yard field goal went wide-right.
Chicago (281 Miles from Detroit) who made the playoff for the in four years and in there first playoff game vs Carolina Panthers pulled upset the Bears, 29-21, so we did not get a regional super bowl for the Detroit Super Bowl, but having Pittsburgh(286 miles from Detroit) in the super bowl did make up for half of the Business we did not get from Chicago, Green Bay, Minnesota, or if it will ever happened the Lions (but from the way it going it may be a pipe Dream)
