The Big Game

When I see Packer fans geared up (or hair-dyed!) for the game, or Brewers fans collecting their paraphernalia for the outing, or the cheering in the streets in videos after the game in New Orleans; I'm glad the USA has so many different types of ball game. Can you imagine the frenzy if all the enthusiasm now spread out among baseball and basketball and hockey and football were concentrated into soccer matches? We'd put British soccer fans to shame. And the stadiums would have to be perhaps four times bigger. Already they seat more people than live in my city.

The owners of the huge facilities wouldn't want them to stand idle the rest of the week--I wonder what they'd think of to entice people there with? Partitioning the place for music venues?
