Not in my lifetime

There are a lot of things that I don't think that I will ever see in my lifetime. And I'm not just talking about that Jennifer Aniston-Angelina Jolie buddy flick.

I know that you're never supposed to say never, but, I have a hard time buying that any of the following will happen during my lifetime...

Al Davis put together another Super Bowl contender.

The Ford family will make the Lions a contender, or that the Lions will bring a Lombardi trophy to Ford Field, even as a loaner from another team.

A Chiefs-Lions Super Bowl.

A Super Bowl in a cold weather non-domed stadium (anyone else notice that football is the only sport in which home field/court advantage goes out the window in the championship game).

Mike Vick as a success in the NFL.

Norv Turner coach a team to the Super Bowl as The Man.

AJ Smith GM a Super Bowl winner.

Jose Canseco, Roger Clemens, or Mark McGwire get into the Hall of Fame.

Mike Shanahan win a Super Bowl without John Elway (why is it that the so-called offensive geniuses have struggled to put quality QB's in place...see Brian Billick, Ravens).

Just a few things that popped into my head today.

We have the SuperBowl in 2012 and I imagine the roof will be sealed up tighter than a drum! I, for one, though, am really excited it is coming here.

I have no problem with domes/retractable roofs getting the game - I'm just puzzled...NFL Films/the NFL waxes poetic about the bad weather games - the Pats-Raiders Snow Bowl, Green Bay-Dallas in the Ice Bowl, etc. but damned if they'll put a Super Bowl in a bad weather, outdoor stadium.

I think it's enough of an event that it could draw in places like NY, Pittsburgh, New England, Etc.
