The Metroplex powers-that-be are cursing the weather gods right now -- Lord knows they'd never curse the man they think is the actual God -- over the terrible conditions hitting town for Super Bowl week.
And we're not just talking Steeler fans!! Ba-dum-bump.
The game will go on icebox or not; the festivities leading up to the game may be a little less festive, however. (And remember, the NFL has awarded the game to New York in 2014!)
Visitors in town have included our Sean Pendergast, and he offers his thoughts in this week's issue on Jerry Jones and how to tell when he's saying the truth. (It involves liquor.) He also surveys some very odd prop bets you can make; we also offer a chart comparing the Dallas and Houston Super Bowl experiences.
See "Welcome to JerryWorld," this week's cover story.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
