Austin > Dallas > Houston > Jersey Shore

During an extended online chat on Friday afternoon, ESPN’s Bill Simmons was asked what he thought of the Dallas-Fort Worth area as a Super Bowl site:

It will be a more fun version of Houston, with better food, and the stadium will make up for any weaknesses with the weekend. This could be the first SB Weekend when the experience of attending the game (and being in the stadium) trumps anything that could have happened during the weekend.

That prompted two responses from Texas that made me giggle:

Dallas more fun than Houston? It’s our state’s version of the Jersey Shore. You must have an affinity for cocaine and shiny shirts.

Look, the best Texas city is Austin, hands down. But Dallas is way more fun than Houston, unless you like humidity and obesity.
