I like this headline out of the Las Vegas Review-Journal
Committee explores pros, cons of hosting Super Bowl in Las Vegas
How am I supposed to take that serious? Cons to Vegas hosting the Super Bowl? That’s absolutely hilarious and a way to just make it sound like they’re looking out for the taxpayers and the locals. Make the locals feel like this is for them and won’t be using their money without a reward for them.
The Southern Nevada Sporting Event Committee on Wednesday conducted a philosophical discussion about the pros and cons of attracting events such as the Super Bowl, the NCAA Men’s Final Four basketball championship and the College Football Playoff National Championship.
The 19-member committee appointed by Gov. Brian Sandoval is gathering information about how to develop an organization whose focus would be bringing major events to Las Vegas after the 65,000-seat Las Vegas stadium is completed in 2020.
Of course a Super Bowl is coming to Vegas. I’ve been saying it over and over again. The NFL rewards cities that build stadiums with Super Bowls and by 2021 we’ll be ready for the Super Bowl in the gambling capital of the world. You’ll be gambling on your phones more than talking to your family. It’s evolution.
