And when you say Miami, you’re talking Super Bowl.

OK, we can’t say that much about the Dolphins anymore, even tough it is the team song.

But the words still ring true when it comes to the Miami area hosting the big game.

Next season’s Super Bowl is returning to South Florida after a 10-year absence. It will be played in the newly renovated Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.

But before we look ahead, here is a look back through the Miami Herald archives on the Super Bowl games played here through the years, starting in the Orange Bowl in 1968 up through the most recent one at what was then Sun Life Stadium in 2010.
