Puerto Rico and big cities of Mexico airfare would be nominal. I started the thread in jest but it might not be a bad idea.

Mexico is a no brainder. Not in America, doesn't need to be NCAA (or SBC) affiliated.

Puerto Rico is (sort of) American already. It's certainly "sunny" for the SBC, and can you imagine the cheerleaders? 04-jawdrop

Puerto Rico is part of America. I think in the last election for the first time ever they elected to be state. I haven't heard much else about it. Perhaps it's still in Congress. No matter they can come and go just like any other American. No passport needed. A few JLO like cheerleaders and I think we have a winner!

Think Puerto Rico is similar to a commonwealth. Not sure
how much passion they have for American football.

I don't think they play football in Puerto Rico but they love basketball.

It's played at a equivalent to club sport level. Many mainland transplants keep it alive. But baseball, basketball and boxing rule.

I had a friend years ago tell the story of going into a store back home and seeing NY Giants Starter jackets for sale. You have to be a fan to but a Starter jacket to wear on "cool" 80 degree days. LOL

Apparently it's up to us if Puerto Rico becomes a state. I thought I heard for the first time ever they voted to become a state in the last general election. Mexican football might be a pipe dream but Puerto Rican baseball and basketball might not be all that crazy and good for our league.

Doesn't really sound promising for putting that extra star on our flag.
Guess Obama is determined to stay with what he claims are our 57 states.
Still cannot believe he said that.

That's an article before the vote. I saw that one but found the one I posted. They want statehood. It's up to us.

Did you see the articles on cost though. Seems like
they would lose money and cost us more.

I just skimmed the article. I was surprised they voted for statehood in the last general election.
