Geez, Even Fargo Has Gone Upscale
By now it’s painfully obvious that Fargo-Moorhead is the next big city. After all the hype over New York and Los Angeles, it’s just a matter of time before we get a whole lot of people telling people to come to Fargo when they want to go where the action is. And they can get that. The main drag, the Main Street, is a place where people are able to go and not just buy some stuff, but actually experience Fargo-Moorhead as a unique place in the world. There’s a reason that a hotel on the north end of the city is called Hotel Fargo. In addition to that, there’s the M&M Carousel.
I’m here for the Super Bowl but I’ve decided to leave the football stuff at the door and instead spend all my time on the Super Bowl. Last week saw the release of the “Fargo Super Bowl” by the Minnesota Vikings, a game in which I am not interested. There’s a lot of football here. The University of Minnesota football team won Saturday for the first time since 1960, when they were led by George Gipp and the Golden Gophers. The game was played in the Minnesota Twin Cities. That’s a good-sized stadium, but I’m not sure how much of a good-sized stadium it is, since the Minnesota State Fairgrounds are located in the middle of it. I’ll tell you if it is a good-sized stadium. I don’t know why anybody would choose to play in the Twin Cities in the Super Bowl. But I bet you can’t find anything in the Twin Cities that’s anywhere near as big as the Super Bowl. But you can find something that has a lot of football in it: the Super Bowl. And this time, the Vikings are the reigning Super Bowl champions; they are also the reigning World Series champions. It’s kind of funny that the Super Bowl is a football championship of the World Series; there are other sports leagues that are considered “World Series” games, but football is the only one that we call the “Super Bowl.” I don’t know if the Super Bowl was originally called the “Super Basketball Championship” or “Super Ice Hockey,” but this is what the league decided to call it, apparently after the original title of the game: the Super Bowl.
