Miami Gears up for Super Bowl

by Terry Bender

The Miami area is gearing up for the super bowl.  Some football players, like Bryant McKinnie of the Minnesota Vikings, have already been partying up and down Ocean Drive.  The big offensive tackle and ex-Hurricane Tweeted about being clubbing at Mansion last week.  However, the big guy did not wake up in time to make practice and was dismissed from the Pro Bowl’s NFC team.  Whoops!

Local businesses have a lot to look forward to.  The super bowl will be bringing an influx of capital via tourism to the area.  Strip clubs will certainly benefit from the male population that of course dominates the demographics of football fans.  Also, Shula’s steak house is getting some good press as Man Vs. Food host Adam Richmond will take on a 48 oz steak during halftime of the Super Bowl.

Other Miami area notes…

The Pro Bowl was played in Miami yesterday, with the AFC winning 41-34.  The victory was sealed by Chris Johnson’s 2 yard touchdown run.
