Yup!

The last SB in Houston was very well done and I had the week off work and treated it like adult spring break. Good time. But everyone from Bill Simmons to mom and pop media outlets couldn't stand the set up because they were put up in hotels out West on 59 or I10 and then had to make their way to George R for media sessions. That was the bad rap. Considering that the SB is a time for the NFL to glad hand with celebs and the like its tough when Diddys party is 30 minutes away out off 10 and someone else has the Maxxim event 20 miles back. I couldn't give a rats tail but I'm just stating the issue. I'm sure in 4 years it will be worked out to some extent but proximity to events is the one negative. Congrats
