The NFL Network very much would like me to tell you that it is planning live coverage beginning at 3 p.m. Tuesday of the announcement regarding the 2014 Super Bowl.

Consider yourself informed.

(The announcement, but not the entire 90-minute show, will be on NFL.com.)

What will the result of all this be? Let me put it this way: When is the last time the NFL provided live coverage of a Super Bowl bid won by Tampa or Miami?

As I cleverly wrote on Twitter, the reason NY/NJ will get the nod is this:

NY/NJ = buzz. Tampa = zzzz.
