A fine San Francisco whine

It's Super Bowl weekend.
The trendy thing in San Francisco is to complain about the game being in their city.
Friends who live in the city grumble about the traffic caused by the “Stupid Bowl.” North Bay residents are angry about the whole Santa Clara 49ers business. Others abhor the corporate stink—the omnipresent Super Bowl branding—and outsized impact, which extends from road closures to hidden costs to the police escort that accompanied a media bus to San Jose on Monday, slowing the midtown commute.
Shut up and let us enjoy our game.
It will probably be a long while until it's back in your area, anyway.
