In response to rkarp's comment:
I think what Wilbur is saying is that "I have nothing to write, so let me throw this silly filler in that has been sitting in my desk drawer"...
the one note of interest is that Wilbur alludes to is Kraft wants a SB here
only a dumbell wold think that a SB would be a Foxboro or Boston thing...of course all the neighboring areas would be included. Wilbur makes it seem like Providence hotels would not welcome a SB?? Maybe a SB would help facilitate better pub trans to the stadium as well...
Every time I've come into town for a game I've stayed in Providence. It's an easier drive to the stadium than from Boston. Only a Globe idiot wouldn't know that many out of town fans stay there.
As for public trans... I used to take Amtrak from Syracuse to Buffalo for the Pats/Bills game every year but the train was cancelled due to problems with drunken fans. Fights, puking, you name it.
I would think anyone coming in on a Saturday for a Sunday game would come thru Prov, enjoy the Prov restaurants (not much night life in Prov other than eating) and attend the game, and not even other with Boston.
as one who has been a season ticket holder for a few decades now, and bringing kids to the game, I am one who applauds the cleaning up of the drunken crowd. does one have to go with the other however? do you need drunks for noise? can families make noise?
I also have a typo..meant to say public transportation and infrastructure...the road into Gillette is bad coming and leaving a game. Wider roads, more roads, bus lanes, easier parking all would be welcome. I know Amtrak does not go thru to the stadium...the T is an option however
