Fort Worth does need more skyscrapers but Fort Worth will do it the smart way. Fort Worth if they wanted to with all that money from urban gas drilling could have probably 30 more skyscrapers downtown if they wanted to.

What do you mean by, "the smart way"?
I don't think it has much to do with money. Our skyline has virtually been the same for 20 years. So I think it has alot more to do with the mindset that Fort Worth feels slot smaller than it actually is. We have plenty of open spots (and places to demolish) for new, taller, skyscrapers.

AUSTIN. I know this is all about Ft. Worth, but Austin is a very ambitious city when it comes to the skyline. Have you seen what it's supposed to look like in 3 years? It's almost like something out of Futurama.

Fort Worth isn't as big as Austin, but we can still bulid as much as Austin, right? What's wrong with a little ambition?
LOL yeah, Austin has a very ambitious plan. FW, while I'm not saying they should try to compete, they should expand the skyline that is commiserate with a top 20 city. At least they are doing construction work in downtown.

Congrats. The Lombardi is back with the NFC. I'm guilty of going for the Pats. To think, the only time this season I cheer for the Patriots... and they loose. WOW. Great game though.

Not as long as the drought the AFC had from about 84 until 96.

You're right - what a long drought that was.

Let's hope this is the start of another AFC drought.

I certainly hope so. I really don't want to see Indy and New England in the same position their in EVERY SINGLE YEAR. It's just like USC, Ohio State, and the Florida schools in the BCS... it's annoying.
