Rational utility-maximizing homeowners will spend it and more to get the hell out of town, and the economic benefits will accrue to owners of vacation rentals in Bend, Hawaii, or other places far from Autzen and the Field Formerly Known as Hayward.

    Duck football games Airbnb rents paid for my sabbatical.

    And the olympic trials is paying for a trip to Hawaii.

    And the 2021 games will pay for a trip to Europe.
