GOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLL! But now what do we do with these stadiums?

Matt Festa is always preaching to his students (and the rest of us) that everything can be looked at as a land use issue. The World Cup is an amazingly easy example of that. A year or so ago I posted about what happens to old Olympic Villages and other facilities, and those same issues pop up with the World Cup. This year's World Cup in Brazil is such an egregious example of poor land use decisions, that no one needs much convincing that it is a land use issue. Even the New York Times has taken notice. Yet, like John Oliver, I just can't stop watching it.
