Nobody has ever spoke about what happened behind the scenes, but with Continental as the dominant player in all this, how did the corporate office wind up in Chicago. Nothing public ever came out that Houston ever made a play or overture to make sure they stayed. Did I miss something in all this?

Hahahah. Gordons been "busy" from what I've heard to come back as a key player. Smisek, IMO, has been doing a great job so far as an exec for some time now
