What we don’t have is a city fit for human habitation in February, not unless we’re going to expand our Habitrails so they link with every building from the new Vikings stadium to the airport.
If football fans around the country want a taste of our winter, they don’t need to travel here. They can watch the next episode of “Fargo.”
Our business and political leaders wanted the big game here to make money and raise awareness of our great cities.
We already have those events.
One is called the Major League Baseball All-Star Game. It will be played in July, at our beautiful ballpark, in beautiful weather, in an increasingly beautiful part of town.
The other is called the Ryder Cup, and it will be contested in the fall of 2016 at picturesque and pristine Hazeltine National.
Those events will broadcast to the nation that, when the tundra thaws, there are reasons to live in the Twin Cities. What the Super Bowl will bring is more jokes about Habitrails and ice fishing.
We were better off being known for Jesse Ventura.
