I’ve spent time over the past three days reading Carnival’s official Facebook page:
When all hell was breaking loose on Thursday night, I thought Carnival had an organized team of posers. But the more I read this dialogue — a debate that’s not slowing down — I realize a LOT of people love Carnival and will continue to stand up for Carnival in a way I thought was reserved for religious and political beliefs, with the passion some of us have for our favorite football team.
I realize Carnival has managed the postings to keep some of the naysayers at bay — but it’s not all sugar-coated. There’s a real fact-based (and perception-based) argument going on here, with hundreds of participants.
And the ones who love Carnival are shouting the loudest.
It’s a good match to watch in this off-season for American football.
