While watching the National Championship game between Ohio State and Oregon, I wondered in the midst of the blitzing commercialism, how many of those dollars went toward protecting the packed stadium of loyal fans?
Twelve-time WWE World Champion John Cena joined What's Trending at the SXSW Samsung Blogger Lounge to talk some smack about The Rock, tease WrestleMania 29 and share how he engages with fans on Twitter and YouTube.
Growing up in an all-girl family put me at a huge disadvantage in terms of major league football. I started dating my future husband in winter. I had no idea he was from a fanatical football family. He seemed so steady, so reasonable. Turns out, he was just dormant.
Build a $1.5-ish billion taxpayer-funded stadium, charge those same taxpayers $2600 to see a game, don't create the promised park for local kids (because they're poor). Now look around. Guess what? You're rich!
This stadium thing looks like a really bad idea. But I did not write of this in public, because the blowback to criticizing Obama is so distracting and also because, well, they would probably wait for a man to say it.
