In case you weren't aware, this year the Super Bowl was played in Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, TX, which is right in the middle of Dallas and Fort Worth. The Packers used the city of Dallas as their homebase - the Steelers were based in Fort Worth, and cowtown did them proud by setting up super bowl central, complete with ESPN's broadcasting center, in the middle of Sundance Square. I'm sure they didn't have nearly as many visitors as they were expecting during the week, because of the winter storm that hit and paralyzed the metroplex. But on Saturday the sun came out, the temps finally rose above freezing, and EVERYONE in the metroplex hit downtown to get rid of their cabin fever. Rachel, Amy, Amanda and I were right there with them. It was an absolutely gorgeous day and even though downtown was crazy, we enjoyed the opportunity to be tourists in our own town.
Those Steeler fans were crazy!
