Default Re: Superbowl in houston has failed

Houston put on a great SB. Bars aplenty. Midtown is fun right outside downtown.

The issue that causes problems is convenience for those staying here. When the SB was here you had guys...higher end media people...staying out near Sugarland, others out West. They then all had to fight traffic to converge downtown. It just isn't good for having that many people in one centralized place. Other cities can handle it and are built for it. It's sad to say but the SB is about marketing and headlines. You get media, celebs, etc coming into your city. It sounds dumb but when Diddy is having is SB party at I-10 and the Beltway, it doesn't draw attention. We don't care about that but some do.

Miami, San Diego, LA, New Orleans...all have built advantages. People want to go there to start.
