Miami-Dade Commissioner Jean Monestime’s statement that “soccer will keep Miami on the map” is outrageous. We are the gateway to Latin America, one of the busiest airport’s for international travel, our port is the leader in the cruise industry, we are an international banking center, our condo construction is booming and we are fast becoming a gourmet restaurant mecca. This is only a small glimpse of what Miami and South Florida have to offer. Beautiful weather, beaches, and a growing economy will keep us on the map, not a soccer stadium with 20 games a year.
