Saints, city of New Orleans stepping up bid to host 2013 Super Bowl

NEW ORLEANS -- The New Orleans Saints and the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation are sending out multimedia previews of their bid to bring the 2013 Super Bowl to the Big Easy.

The bids are encased in wooden boxes built by local cabinet makers and emblazoned with the slogan "A Perfect 10," a nod to what would be the city's 10th Super Bowl.

Each NFL owner will receive a box, also featuring art by young local artists. Inside are books outlining the bid proposal, along with an iPod containing a brief video.

NFL owners will vote on bids by New Orleans, Miami and Phoenix to host the 2013 Super Bowl in meetings May 19-20.
