As has been said, it depends upon the event, this history and who sponsors it.
It wouldn't make sense for Wimbledon or the Masters, etc. to be held elsewhere ans these events were originated by the clubs where they're held, or the Chambers of Commerce (bowl games.) Why would Augusta National move...

But a Brother Martin vs Jesuit state final would definitely outdraw Rummel/Curtis. The two biggest high schools in the city with tons of loca...

Remember, most parking enforcement in New Orleans takes place during "business hours." What that means is that the city or the privately-run parking enforcement pays their officers OVERTIME for events like those mentioned in this thread: Po-Boy Fest, Crescent City Classic, or the re-opening of Turch...

He's said this for years. I don't know why he hasn't got the memo, yet, that officials around FIFA HATE the United States. If we even learn to be nasty, we'll be consistently playing with 8 players.
US can't AFFORD to get nasty, unless he and his assistants have magical plans and abilities to win...

Gruden is done. He's now been "out" almost as long as he was "in." And he wasn't that great when he was in. Can he consistently deliver 8 wins for 9 consecutive years, and 10 wins for how many of those? Plus a MNC with half Saban's and half his own players as well as another MNC game birth with a te...

I think Pete Maravich would have the most national appeal.
How about the LSU v. Ole Miss game in...was it 1971? With the four seconds put on the clock?
How about being denied the Cotton Bowl by Notre Dame?

Y'all think Flo is bad on TV? Try listening to the radio commercials. I listen to Live365.com during the work day, and they run Progressive ads. HO-LEE crap, you can have the volume all the way down to watch a video or something, and BOOM the commercials get run at full volume anyway.
