Morons in the News

We all do dumb things. The two individuals I am about to mention, take it to an entirely new level. Arsenio Hall coined the phrase “things that make you go hmmmm”. I actually have that phrase as a category here. Check out these morons in the news.

Before I even get to the post, Cleveland Indian highlights, I wish to say kudos to The Chicago Cubs. Unlike some of my fellow Clevelanders, I am not that upset with the loss. This season was a wonderful ride and I would like to thank “The Tribe” for more great memories. And for you Cubs fans who wanted to rub it in, shut up already… it is not going to take us over a century to be the champions. ūüėõ

When I first thought of doing this post, the Cleveland Indians were in game 6 of the 2016 World Series. Originally, I was going to look for 2016 highlights. When I began searching Google and YouTube for highlights, found a many, many great clips from earlier years. While I intend to do a 2016 highlight post in the future, today, I am going to focus on seasons further past.

Progressive Presents CLE

Kudos to Progressive

No body likes to see their town die. Most of my life, I watched industry and trade leave my hometown of Cleveland. Once one of the largest cities in the country, we became known as a symbol of urban decay. It was a sad time.

Cleveland still has much to offer. I could go on for hours just mentioning some of our famous architecture. While a colorful history is one thing, I would rather see a bright future.

While Cleveland has yet to return to it’s full glory, it is now moving in an upward direction. The city looks the best it has in my lifetime. It is nice to see companies such as Progerssive presenting us in a positive light. Check out the video below.

While most of my fellow Clevelanders are fixated on Cleveland Hosting 2016 Republican National Convention, I happened on news of another huge event to be hosted here as well.  A worldwide competition last year hosted in Japan,  The International Yo-Yo Foundation has decided that Cleveland is to host the 2016 World Yo-Yo Contest.

Personally, I think that this better¬†than the RNC… after all it is pretty hard not to have good memories of yo-yos. ¬†Not the same can be said for many a politician.

Almost all of us have played with a yo-yo. They are nearly a universal toy, at least as common as the top. ¬†Almost every culture has yo-yos. ¬†They were a bit of an explosive fad in the 70s with the, now famous, Ducan Butterfly… every kid wanted one. ¬†I was among those kids. ¬†I still have two Duncan light up yo-yos in my dresser drawer.

It’s Big and It Could Hold a Whole Lotta’ Weed

English: American football with clock to repre...

Greetings Readers,

It’s that time of year again. ¬†You know, time for that really big game with the name you can’t mention for fear you will be sued. ¬†I’ll just say it’s a bowl and, while one team may get smoked, you don’t actually smoke what is in it. Also, it is also not the type you squat on for number two. Finally, the teams playing this year are both from states where plumes of blue-grey smoke are legal for recreation so it has earned a new nick name this year. ¬†Now that you all know what I am talking about… Continue reading “It’s Big and It Could Hold a Whole Lotta’ Weed”
