View Full Version : Houston Praise/Bash

If anything, the past two days made me appreciate Houston's performance last year, a city that faced the same logistical problems and conquered many of them. I don't think Houston should have hosted a Super Bowl either, and those last two days were a certifiable train wreck. But at least they had enough hotels. At least there were a decent number of cabs. At least there was a recognizable downtown area. At least they had the Light Rail, with the bonus that you might get to see some drunken pedestrian bouncing off it. Houston was 10 times more prepared than Jacksonville is right now.

Train wreck ...NO! ..lucky we didn't have any. :rofl:
They have to write cutey insulting artices to get peoples attention!

I ran into Dan Patrick and his sidekicks (ESPN) at the Hilton during Super Bowl week. His nose was so far up in the air, I'm surprised he didn't trip over his own feet!
