Wherein FOX ID's Mayor Tom as "R-Texas"

That $202-million figure seen in the screengrab above comes from PricewaterhouseCoopers's much-debated Super Bowl guesstimate released a few days ago -- though, as you'll note in Mayor Tom's interview with FOX Business Channel, he pushes that number up to, oh, 'round $600 million-ish. Which is what happens when you conduct interviews outside on days like this -- it's called a "cold snap." You'll have to watch the interview here. Fox Business doesn't allow for embedding.

So, first NPR; now Fox. Banner day for Mayor Tom.
