Re: “Operation Maple Bacon: From Canada Back to Cleveland, the St. Edward's Rowing Team Hopes to Traverse Lake Erie

Is there a place you can watch the rowers come in to Cleveland on the lake?

Re: “Bigger than Basketball: The Transformative Power of LeBron James

I for one am not ready to welcome him back with open arms. I feel like LeBron thrived while he left us in misery for all these years, and now he comes back to a better situation than he'd have in Miami, but he's still the big hero who came home. He still made the decision that was best for HIM on all fronts, but of course all of us should lick his shoes clean because of it. I'll pass, thanks. Heck, even if we win a title in the next year or two, I'll still view it as tainted because it was gotten through ill-gotten means (in my opinion).

Re: “Blake Skjellerup, Olympian Speed Skater for New Zealand and Gay Games Ambassador, on Coming Out and the Status of Gay Professional Athletes

He's an athlete, NOT a psychologist! Your sexuality is an integral part of WHAT you are 24/7, 365 days a year, asleep or awake! "Your sport," IF YOU HAVE ONE, at any given time, tends to be a part of your identity (WHO) if it is a part of your career. Your sport can and does change, you're sexuality does not! The last thing you want to do is repress your sexuality so you can play a sport "OR NOT LOOSE YOUR POSITION." That should be the lifesaving, quality-of-life lesson. Michael Sam got it right!

Re: “Free Base: A Neighborhood Reacts after Violence Interrupts West Denison Little League's Summer Games

The people of this neighborhood need to take a page from the Detroit-Shoreway crowd. When they first decided to take back their neighborhood in the late 80's-early 90's they put on an aggressive neighborhood watch program and some literally stood on street corners at night carrying baseball bats and driving away drug dealers and prostitutes. It was tough, but it worked.

Re: “The Cleveland Bucket List

One thing you should add is to attend the Greater Cleveland Peace Officer Memorial Tattoo concert in May. Its one of the best in the country! Besides, who doesn't like bagpipes?

The boogeymen keep moving west. Today West 107th...West 150th tomorrow? The Irish will not run from their Green Mile. And the first responders who still live here will respond first...with armed response.

Come to Kamm's Corners little thuggies and druggies, and you'll go home as shepherd's pie. Or in a box. Not a threat...a promise.

DO SOMETHING! This place was a gem in the 60s. We would play baseball at Brookside in the mornings and at Thrush in the West Denison league in the evenings. Greatest childhood ever. Now, it's all gone? How? Why? DO SOMETHING!

This probably won't be seen , Blacks ruined that area . Look at the crime stats and who the perpetrators are . Raise rents in those areas and see how fast crime drops ' Ohio city is a prime example as is the Tremont area.

Re: “Free Base: A Neighborhood Reacts after Violence Interrupts West Denison Little League's Summer Games

Just another Councilperson that's not doing their job. When will citizens wake up and stop voting these people in office time and time again? The city is rampant with crime, shootings, and murders and what's being done???? Things are going to change people unless you vote the same old, same old out of office.

Re: “Bigger than Basketball: The Transformative Power of LeBron James

I suppose I am glad James is a Cav again...but the hoop-la and the fawning were embarrassing and ridiculously kiss-ass.

And what will people do if there's no instant title in a year or two? Will they burn their jerseys again and throw rocks again...at his image on a building?

Will there even BE an image to throw rocks at this time around? Damn betcha there will! It felt like the Second Coming last week. If Christ came to Cleveland, he would be wearing a wine-and-gold NBA jersey.

I'd love to see LBJ (no, not the ghost of that OTHER LBJ) mobilize his disciples to get out the vote...by any means necessary...and blow the Rethugs out of the water in this state. Is he even remotely motivated to do such a thing? Is he a political animal at all?

LBJ could change a lot of things in Ohio if he were so inclined. Bigger than basketball, indeed. One can only hope.

Re: “Bigger than Basketball: The Transformative Power of LeBron James

I've read this story three times and I still can't figure out what Peter Pattakos is trying to say. The first half of the article is strong, but then the second half turns passive without bringing home the author's point.

Seph Lawless is a well-known fraud who has only been doing exploring for under two years. He claims to have been arrested over 50 times, but Ohio court systems show no record of this.

Re: “Savagely Yours: A Chat with the Guy You've Read in the Back of Scene for Years

That's too bad...you really missed something special. My wife and I gave up a beautiful afternoon at the Larchmere Porchfest so we could go downtown and see him.

Really glad we made that decision. There's a Porchfest every summer, but there's only one Dan Savage.

Re: “Big Opportunities: The Opportunity Corridor's New Director Discusses Project Goals and Controversy

Gee, folks like me will be soon be able to get to CIA, CMA, and WOW (Wade Oval Wednesday) ten minutes faster from the West Side...and still spend an hour looking for a goddam place to park.

But I got wise...and finally figured out the solution to that problem...get to ANY University Circle event two hours before the announced start time.

The early bird gets the space, and the seats that the rich old East Side art-farts try to hold for all their rich old East Side art-fart friends. That's why so many folks hate Canadians.

Nudging? Isn't that a Jewish thing? Where you whine a lot and pester somebody else?

Oh, wait...different spelling...
And it's pronounced like it's spelled..."noodging"...

Never mind!
