Re: FL Gov welcomes teams to play in FL

Predictably, the shutdown army is going after him in the comment section, but the fact is Florida would have been ground zero at some point based on the Super Bowl (keep in mind a few weeks back Florio totally bought into the article about the Niners saving lives by losing, which sounds like it cam...
