SEATTLE SKETCHER: Today marks 15 years since Seattle-bound Alaska Airlines Flight 261 crashed off the coast near Los Angeles, killing all 88 people on board. Passengers included two families from Queen Anne whose memory is kept alive by neighbors who will honor them with a candlelight vigil at 4 p.m.
Tourism officials believe the city is more ready than ever to host the big game, but several hurdles remain before a bid.
