Oh, the irony that could be on tap for Tuesday. On that day, the AJC's Tim Tucker tells us, Atlanta will learn whether its new home for the Falcons has a Super Bowl in its future:
Five cities, including Atlanta, are bidding for the games, with no city allowed to land more than one. The Atlanta bid committee prefers the February 2019 event, which will be awarded first, but also is seeking the other two in case the first goes elsewhere.
But Tuesday is also Election Day, and at least two Republican state senators are being made to sweat over their votes for the NFL incentives that, city officials and the Falcon front office tell us, were necessary to make Atlanta’s Super Bowl bid viable.
