Face it... this why Fort Worth will always be in the shadow of Dallas. Fort Worth will never shake its Cowtown image because the leaders in this city think too small. It pains me to say this but FW will never be able to compete with Dallas, Houston or Austin. FW is more like El Paso or Shreveport.
Well, since it is now "Sundance Square by Nissan" perhaps they could sponsor the Colonial as well? Honestly, I don't know who sponsors the other tournaments but what about Nike, Titleist, Chili's or since it is the oldest tournament how about the "I've fallen and I can't up @ Colonial"? ;-)
This is a QUICK video so don't blink or you'll miss it... The first thing you see is the CNB clock and then the Tarrant County Courthouse when it "upgraded" in 1958. I believe the clock tower was painted white and outlined in neon with a neon flag on top. I wasn't even born at the time but what were they thinking?
Just build it and quit thinking small. The addition of that building and the Frost Tower will make a nice addition to the skyline. I also think that the proposed hotel in the cultual district should be left at 12 stories. Just my opinion.
I agree... I used to live in North Arlington and was in the flight path of D/FW... You get used to it. I think the night I will remember most is 9/11. The planes were not flying at all and the silence was deafening.
I guess its kinda like buying a house next to an airport then complaining about the airplane noise! I'm not 55 yet but I can see it up ahead and I gotta tell ya I still like the thump, thump, thumpin music...
