There certainly is a dark side to large sporting events as this article on human trafficking makes perfectly clear.  The 'event economy' based on tourism (even without trafficking) also has some negative impacts.

This a very sad situation, I can only imagine, the torture and abuse this girls endure. This video should be play as super ball commercial, every year to bring awareness of what is going on behind closed doors. I bet they won’t play it, because we don’t like to hear about unhappy stories. Every year we get so caught up on the excitement and in our everyday life that we forget how bad other people are having it.

This is a crowd-sourced map of NFL fans is very different from this more stylized version

Heather Ramsey's curator insight, January 31, 2013 11:27 AM

This map shows fans of NFL teams by county. The data was collected from Facebook posts and people's pages. What patterns do you see for the fans in states that do not have a professional football team? In states that DO have a pro team, does everyone root for the home team? Why would a state have fans who root for another team? (Think geographically.)
