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.
The Airport is way less than 15 miles from "downtown" JAX.

We built a Federal Courthouse in dowtown JAX so I was flying there once a week for about 18 months and believe me, there was a disticnt nastiness smell (papermill or not). Am I suggesting that it's pollution and does the city of Houston have any room to talk? Heck to the NO!!! The smell reminds me of certain drives thru Luling when that mill is going off... Samething, only constant.

The Fans?? Ask Joe about how "nice" their fans are by trying to steal (and I believe successfully) Joe's hat.

*Disclaimer* This in no way means to insult Mootini, who again, has been a longtime member and contributor.
