Fans in the popular blow-up dinosaur costumes chased each other through the convention center and generally added to the craziness. Lord help you if you go outside in that heat. Usually Discovery Green is packed with sunbathers, but not so much this year.

Speaking of the convention center

We have high hopes that all that construction will pay off for the convention center area. From the looks of the torn-up roads and construction, by this time next year, months after the Super Bowl, it should be looking great.
