“Silicon Valley’s Santa Clara Stadium Awaits 49ers”

YEP. HOW IS THIS NEWS?

“SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 30, 2013 / — The city of Santa Clara is surrounded by San Francisco to the north and San Jose next door to the south. Its population of just over 118,000 is well below these neighboring cities, yet as of August, 2014 the NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers will be playing home games in Santa Clara, California. Already longtime headquarters for the team, the city is poised for permanent placement in the national and international sports spotlight.

UH, ACTUALLY, SC, YOU’RE SURROUNDED BY _SAN JOSE_ TO THE SOUTH.

RIGHT?

ALL RIGHT, READ THE REST, GENTLE READER, TO TRY TO SEE THE POINT OF THIS RELEASE. TTFN!

“The $1.2 billion Santa Clara Stadium will have the flexibility to host domestic and international soccer, college football, motocross, concerts, various civic events, and can be expanded for major events such as the Super Bowl. In fact, it has already been announced that the stadium is one of two finalists to host Super Bowl L in February, 2016 or Super LI in February, 2017. The stadium also will be home to the annual NCAA college football Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl beginning in 2014. Santa Clara Stadium will be the first professional football stadium to open with LEED certification, the recognized standard for measuring building sustainability.

Surrounding this unique sports venue is the city’s Santa Clara Convention Center, California’s Great America theme park, high-tech giants including Intel Corporation, Cisco Systems, and many others as well as a variety of major brand and independent hotels.

    We’re bordered by San Jose, Sunnyvale, Cupertino, and Campbell:

    I think the press release is designed to get people interested in buying personal seat licenses or naming rights.

    To the editor – take a look at the website for Santa Clara Plays Fair, the grassroots group of Santa Clarans which opposed the use of public funds for the stadium, and opposed having Santa Clara’s agency, the Stadium Authority, take on $950 million in loans to construct the stadium.

    Surrounded by San Jose and Sunnyvale for the most part. The press release implies that SC is equidistant from SF and SJ.

    I think it’s a victory lap for “winning” the 49ers…

    It’s been an unbelivable story in Santa Clara. We are “led” by corrupt, deluded fools. Try thinking of all the concerts we’re going to be having in the stadium. LOL.
