Perspective No. 2

Seating capacity of:

  • FedEx Field (Washington Redskins) – 91,704
  • Reliant Stadium (Houston Texans) – 71,500
  • M&T Bank Stadium (Baltimore Ravens) – 71,008
  • Texas Stadium (Dallas Cowboys) – 65,675

Population of Lufkin, Texas (my hometown) – 36,830

No insights.  I just find it extraordinary that every citizen of Lufkin can fit into the smallest stadium with almost 29,000 seats left empty.

Perspective No. 1

  • Years since the U.S. declaration of independence: 232.
  • Years London’s Borough Market has been in its current location: 252.

As a citizen of a young nation, it is important to have a broad worldview to gain a proper perspective.  And incidentally, the Borough food market is reported to have been founded in AD 43.
