One of the sub-discussions about the proposed MLS Stadium promoters want taxpayers to build in downtown Las Vegas is the fact that Las Vegas is the largest Metro area without major professional sports.
On the other hand, no other Metro area boasts of having Celine Dion or Elton John performing for weeks or months at a time. In other words, some places spend more than half the year with nothing to do, aching for spring, while Las Vegas is already the entertainment capital of the world.
Take New Hampshire, for instance, where this weekend featured a drunken riot at a Pumpkin Festival. Here are the details, courtesy of the Christian Science Monitor.
