I have a feeling this is going to be a big non-issue for the majority. There may be some traffic Fri or Sat before and probably Monday after, but for the majority of people, there will be nothing to notice except more signs and helicopters

The closure of Central Expressway on Sunday and the detouring of its traffic onto Middlefield strikes me as having the potential to create a big mess.

I've been out on SB Sundays. It's almost like driving around xmas morning. There will be detours, but there will be a much smaller qty of cars.
We'll see. It'd be a shame if there was nothing noticeable at all so I'm hoping for just a little evidence that the SB is up the road, but not an avalanche of it. haha.

My college-educated neighbors and friends, including friends in SF and Santa Clara, are pretty unanimous about the so-called "Super Bowl". They all hate it as a cheap and tawdry display of bad taste for people with equally bad judgement and taste, and they wish it would just go away. Despite NFL and a comically horrible, boosterism-inspired media propaganda blitz, the Superbowl and especially the Super Bowl Village in SF will cost the Bay Area $10s of billions in disrupted business actives and people's lives. The greedy pigs who run the NFL should all be run out of town.

Interesting OldMV. They all think that way huh? Well then I guess we'll have to wait and see if those people are smart, or just smart-alecks.

10's (plural)of Billions in the red they say? OK at least 20B in the red is their prediction. I'll be sure to look for that result. haha.
