Super Bowl XLV
Seven days away and Dallas/Ft Worth is a Zoo. Some roads already blocked off. Traffic rerouted. Good thing Obama is not coming or it would be even worse having to contend with that. Prices going sky high. One place reportedly wants $900 for parking. Several friends in the Arlington area have rented their homes for $5000 for 5 days. Hotels have tripled rates on average. A buddy of mine in staying with Tom Bodet at Motel 6 Friday night ffor $98 plus tax. No charge for the mold.
Should be a good game. I'm rooting for the Pack and NFC so you better put your dough on the Steelers.
Thank Jeery Jones for the "enterprise zone". Maybe he will get enough income to turn the Cowboys a different direction.
My guess is that the entrepreneurial activities occur in every city hosting the SB.
I heard that "PT" Jones was selling parking lot "seats" for $200. $200 to stand in the parking lot and watch the game on TV. My guess there will be concession available as well.
Just on the news. The Wal Mart across the street from the SB will close next Sunday and several area churches are not going to hold services Sunday.
Crazy....Wal-Mart missing out on a buck!? You'd think they could sell a bunch of coolers, ice and hot dogs on a day like that. :p

Here's some good news:
Every time the Steelers are in the Superbowl, the stock market has a bull year.
Over their 7 trips, the annual performance averages 19% increase in the Dow the following year.
Steelers landed about 1 hour ago - 11:30 CST. Should be at hotel any minute.
Packer send off on T.V.
Glad when it's over.
Pack by 3.
Ice Storm/Snow hits Dallas
DFW Airport reopens
DART Rail System Closed
Dallas Zoo Elephant picks Packers
Did the Packers/Steelers bring this crap with them?:confused:
The Steelers and the Packers had sand truck escorts leading the way to practice/media day. What a deal!
