Furness pointed out that Mr. 305 is avoiding the 305 in his Bad Man Tour this summer by choosing to perform in Sunrise. That is technically true. The BB&T center, which Pit sensibly picked for his local stop, is in the 954 — or the 754 — which is just north of the 786 or the... whatever...
Bottom line: It takes half an hour to drive to the BB&T Center from my house in the, um, 305. Parking is easy there. Last weekend, I was there for the Wings for Life run. It was a stupendous event — chock full of 305ers — to benefit those with spinal injuries. No one — not one person — complained it wasn't Miami. The reason, Dyllanito, is that Sunrise is part of the Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach, FL Metropolitan Statistical Area, according the US government.
I ain't saying this because both newspapers' management plans a new event called EAT at the BB&T. Nor am I saying it because I am a Panthers fan. I'm making this point because South Florida has become one big megalopolis since I moved here in 1989, and Pitbull has every damn right to play where he wants in it. And hey, I have credibility to make this point. I am editor of both newspapers and have lived in both counties.
Also, Dyllan, you ignorant slut, Pitbull is a genius. Stop hating on him. Some of his success is merchandising, sure. But he is a real product of Miami who was helped along the way by the original Mr. 305, Luther Campbell.
Dyllan, you, I think, grew up in the 954. So maybe there is some self loathing, here. Just maybe.
