I live in a suburb of Detroit and went downtown last weekend to see all the craziness for the SuperBowl being set up. Here, the media is going crazy, saying how wonderful Detroit is and how much progress we're making. It actually made me kind of sad, because even though the downtown is so nice, the outlying areas are worse than one can imagine. Nevertheless, I loooove visiting Detroit because there is so much history, culture, and just the whole urban decline/upswing thing intrigues me.
Anyway.. like I said before, our local news channels are going crazy excited over the SuperBowl coming here.
I'd like to know... what are other people around the country saying about the SuperBowl being in Detroit?
