    I imagine it is pretty expensive to live in Sugar Land. I think it is pretty upscale.

    it really was an unfortunate choice of names. Look it up on urbandictionary.com if you aren't familiar with the slang term skeet. Looks like it will be a nice stadium, etc. and that area is growing like crazy.

    And as for being an expensive place to live, Houston must have the cheapest home prices for a major city in the USA.
