If there's an NFL team interested in moving to Southern California, they now have a place to call home... at least temporarily.  

At a packed meeting that went late into the night yesterday, the Pasadena City Council made a decision doubling the number of large events allowed each year at the Rose Bowl. This would allow a professional football team to use the stadium.

Some Pasadena residents aren't happy with the decision, arguing that an NFL team would bring traffic jams, noise, and rowdy football fans. 

KPCC's Brian Watt was at the meeting and he joins the show to give us a rundown of what happened.
