That is true. The cruise ships are coming. I am working with the NFL and am doing my best to make a half assed impression. Better than a bad one. There are things to do and places to go. The ships are actually being brought in not just as floating hotels, but as an option. And in reference to the article......... Yes, Jacksonville does smell. And that smell is coffee. The Maxwell House plant is about 1/2 mile from the stadium. I pretty much live in Down Town Jacksonville. It took a while to get used to that smell.

OK, here it is. I live in Jacksonville, but I am not from Jacksonville. I am from Southern California. I have been here a little over a year now. Yes, at first I was slightly shocked by the obvious change in lifestyle and culture. Hell, I even wanted to turn around and drive the 2800 miles back west on the 10. That was my first impression. That is what worries me about the Super bowl being here and it's future in Jacksonville. I like Jacksonville. Well, I like Jacksonville "NOW". You see, Jacksonville is a place that grows on you. I can't think of one person that comes here for the first time and says, "This place is f*cking awesome"! It just doesn't happen. It is sad to say, but unless a lot of crazyness happens (the good, fun, party kind)the Super Bowl will not be back. So, if any of my fellow Jacksonvillians want extreme economic growth, more large events, and to not be laughed at when you tell people where you are from, Do something. You have 1 week!
