Super Bowl spawns stadium stories

The weekend of the Super Bowl — I understand that some team won by a guy accidentally falling on his butt for a touchdown, which is truly the greatest sports moment ever — brought with it a plethora of stadium stories at least tenuously connected to the big game. My personal favorite is the one about how nice the weather would be at the Super Bowl in New Jersey if only it were now instead of two years from now, but other highlights include:

On balance, it was a pretty good run of pieces — at least it's better than regurgitating unsubstantiated claims about how much big sporting events bring to the local economy — even if we likely only got it because of Super Bowl-related search-engine-grubbing. Not that I'd know anything about that.


Ironic that as Mayor Bloomberg tried to foist a over-priced, badly-located mega boondoggle on the taxpayers of NYC/NYS. I guess taxpayer fleecing is o.k. when it involves his pals (woodie johnson) getting it for a song.
