One could argue that San Francisco/Santa Clara are essentially Northern/Midwestern cities, geographically at least (they are at the same lattitude as southern Missouri/Illinois). "Western" is probably a better descriptor though.

It's weird to me that we've hosted it twice but Seattle or Denver never have.

If they'd put a roof on their buildings, I'm sure they would have. New York is the only northern city without a roof to host - and that was because... New York.
Kinda surprised to see Dallas has only has it once.

I'm curious if they'll even return to the Bay area again, at least at the current Levi's stadium.

Dallas, if I recall, was kind of a disaster with an ice storm messing everything up.

One interesting distinction — for better or worse — is that we're one of the few cities with a downtown stadium. Dallas and San Francisco, for example, are nowhere near those cities. Organizers might view this as a benefit logistically, but one of the most successful parts of our hosting was that it was semi-centralized. For the most part, downtown Minneapolis was the center of the universe (with orbiting moons in St. Paul and Mall of America). I assume a Dallas Super Bowl was much different, with more isolated events around the city.

Star Tribune reports that the X Games extended their time here by two more years to 2020.

Link. Cool! Also, the motorcycle races will be moving up from the MoA parking lot to join everything else at the stadium. Now if we can just get it to stop snowing by July...
