That said, I mean no offense to our long-time Jaguars Mootini. He's a cool cat and he explained that "the smell" is a nearby paper plant or something like that!!!
That must be something near the airport. I have driven through there a few times and never smelled anything foul or ever had the impression that Jax is a polluted city.
Also we (people from Houston) have no room to make fun of another city for foul odor ..lol. At least people from where I grew up as a kid (La Porte, Deer Park, Stinkadena) where odor and yellow/brown clouds were the norm.
I always had a real bad impression of the Jags and their fans because of the internet, however I was pleasantly surprised by the stadium and atmosphere there.
BTW, I am now not sure I am going to make this game. I just got offered a 10 day all inclusive/paid stay down in the Keys. All my buddy wants me to do is bring my boat down there and taxi some of our friends to some islands and snorkeling areas. I have never been to the Keys and am probably going to take him up on that deal. The unfortunate part is these 10 days include the first 2 NFL weekends. However the good news is we are playing the Dolphins in week 1 so I know that game will be on regular TV in the Keys.
I could leave a day early and make the Jags game but that will be a lot of driving. Jax is about 2.5 hours north from where I now live and I will be coming back from the Keys (about 6 hours south).
