I'll predict Soros did it..!!
Nah, j.k Boon
But there's been a few movies based on attacks at sports stadiums..
I watched "The Sum of all Fears" just the other day..
They nuked Baltimore stadium..
They got the President out in time but not a word to the public....
Scary though to have so many people in such a small area..
Our good old MCG often has over 90,000 crowd.
Odd? If the Bears had beat Green Bay then the Pres was going to the Super Bowl, but since they lost because their QB Cutler stopped playing for a sprain and was razzed by everyone for it afterwards, he won't be there.

If someone releases VX Nerve Gas at the Super Bowl, that would make for some scary TV.
Talk about terrorizing a nation - thousands and thousands of people would die on TV, and then the ensuing mob of people stampeding out of the stadium and trampling each other under the grip of a pure primal fear would probably be more than most people could handle.
And to think, if that happens, and you predicted it based on solid internet/media research, and the FBI failed, well that would be pretty epic too.
I hope to hell you are wrong.

Notable areas of interest in 2011 are: the economy, environmental disasters and changes, terrorism and the newest and greatest threat ever to mankind, the stock market and other investments, and the first detonation of a nuclear device over a civilian target since WW II.
Celente argues that the economy will become much worse during the year. There will be loss of liberty and crackdown on the people as the war on terror and on crime expands. In the name of terror the government will clamp down on the people. Celente says:"Big Brother will be watching!"
