Championship City Lives!
Even college, if you want.
Every Super Bowl, should be played in Vegas. Every Final Four. Every BCS Title Game.
World Series, NBA Finals, and Stanley Cup are more tricky, because they are a series. So perhaps we go 2-2 home and home and the last 3 in "Championship City!"
For one, you could build the bitchin-est stadiums ever with Vegas dollars. I'm talking over-the-top, Steve Wynn inspired, budget-be-dammed palaces of sports awesomeness.
Also, we'd never ever ever have to worry about having a week like we had in Dallas. The worst we'd endure: 50 and windy. Boo hoo.
When your team is in the Championship, and the game is in Championship City, you are going to have the biggest fucking blast of your life. All week, gamble, golf, go to shows and restaurants, and then BET ON YOUR TEAM!
No brainer, right?
Well for years, I just tossed it out there, like it was a pipe dream.
Turns out, I'm not the only one sucking on the pipe.
Behold, the first hazy rendering of a magical world that someday, maybe, with God's blessing WILL be, "Championship City."
