I’ve written before about the obscenity of the football stadium in Allen, Texas — it’s a $60 million shrine to sports at a public high school. But they managed to persuade the property owners in the area to pay higher taxes to fund it, so it’s difficult to say it was wrong. Stupid, for sure, wasteful, definitely, but not illegal in any way.
But now McKinney, Texas has authorized the construction of a $62.8 million stadium. This is a disease. It may not be criminal, but it’s an immoral waste of resources. We’re talking about schools sinking that much money into temples to brain damage.
The kicker? The new stadium is going to be built 4 fucking miles from the Allen stadium.
Meanwhile, I get chided for disrespectfully referring to generic “sportsball”. I promise to mock sportsball more often. America desperately needs a major priority readjustment in many areas.
