David Letterman has called for viewers to submit their top ten things about having the Super Bowl in Detroit.

You can bet that submissions will all be funny jabs at Detroit like, "Visitors can keep warm by setting fires to cars." etc.

I encourage you to try your hands at listing some funny, yet positive reasons why the superbowl is in Detroit.

Expectations are low so anything good that happens is a plus.
Pressures people to be on good behavior.
Gets a few potholes filled.
Downtown bars can recouped some lost Red Wing revenue.
Gives newspapers something good to write about.
Excuse for lame celebrities to visit.
Meter maids love it.
Limo drivers get rich.
Some home owners get to pay off mortgages early.
City's image grows brighter.
