We don't want the Cubs to have a chance to win the series, because if they win, we will have the longest drought.
Crazy, man, crazy! Praying for Cubs vs. Tribe!
Too bad this didn't happen years ago, or it might have been "praying for Trib vs. Tribe..."
(as in Tribune Company, the former owners, who also owned the newspaper and WGN)

The proximity and the historical import of a SOUTH Side World Series berth? Fix it, you silly jamoke!
The Cubs play in Wrigley, which is on the NORTH Side. It's the White Sux who play on the South Side, at whatever the fuck they're calling their ballpark this week. And yeah, the rich yupster Cub fans will buy up all the remaining tickets at the Jake.
And if Chicago wins, you can also forget about Tribe vs. Cubs on the NORTH Side...whatever the "secondary market" ticket prices are in Cleveland, and no matter what scalper you choose to deal with, multiply by a factor of five or six. At least. Maybe ten. That's why the cameras constantly zoom in on the likes of high-rollers like Eddie Vedder and Bill Murray.
Unless you have more than a few grand to spend, per game, you will be out in the Wrigleyville streets, as I will be. City streets that will put Bourbon Street and Mardi Gras to shame. Zillions of drunken frat boys. You will see more beat cops (no pun intended) and horse cops than there were at the RNC. It will be complete and total madness! A human zoo! A nuthouse on fire! Can't wait!

My wife and I attended last year...it was madness...the crowds were unbelievable. Much better spot than trendy,overpopulated Ohio City. The fest just got too big for that hip venue.
Yeah, it was bright and sunny and in the 60s...in February! But you also neglected to mention that when the wind shifted and began blowing off the lake, and became much stronger over time, the temperature dropped a good 20-30 degrees in the late afternoon, and the wind chill cut to the bone.
It's definitely a cool urban location (no pun intended) under the Shoreway. But a location in such close proximity to the lake, especially in late winter, will always guarantee some...interesting...(as the TV weather folks call them) weather conditions.
Snow, biting wind, chilly temps, or maybe all three.
Hey, WTF... what do you expect? It's Cleveland, it's wintertime, it's the Flats. You guys picked it!

This article is HILARIOUS and soooooo true! I've walked out of Walmart Steelyard leaving a full cart of stuff........throwing my hands up and just saying fuuuuuuuuuug it because it was so bad in there! A complete waste of time!
Thank the Bible-thumping mofos in Columbus for making North Missitucky great again.
If there's a new way to screw things up, this state will find it.

He never mentions his work with Public Image Ltd...I'd love to hear about his experience with John Lydon and the albums he recorded then.
He had a "Merrittorious" performance.
Wait... they are moving Cleveland Hustle to another city???
fun fact, if playing 6/5 and dealer shows a 6, declare your hand an 11 and double down.
Bravo! Such a Cleveland thing to do.
The Problem is the labor pool they have to draw on.. You can't make a silk purse with a sows' ear... unfortunately it will never improve unless they raise the wage rate so high people are willing to commute from other areas to work there...
I would have given Eastlake this award before they built the new store. Even with the new store, I would have given it to them for the awful, dangerous, and confusing parking lot entrances. However, these entrances and exits are also fixed.
That's why i play casino online . There is a large selection of games and jackpots http://freecasinogames.net/jackpots.html in this site
PLEASE make correction to the "Three Kids, No Husband" paragraph. The co-writer is Lori McKenna!
(NOT the Canadian Celtic artist Loreena McKennitt) You know, Lori McKenna, the brilliant singer-songwriter of "Girl Crush", "Humble & Kind" and SO many others.
Mike Pettine must be the "head coach" of the joint.
No, Mr. Miller, you are not alone in this. As a former 1995 graduate of the English Nanny & Governess School, I, too, question Ms. Cruz merits. I would have called the police at the time if I had witnessed what she had. Anyone in a position of trust is bound by law to report to law enforcement abuse and neglect including suspicions of said mentioned. Ms. Cruz put her potential charges in possible further danger by not reporting the incident at the time of witnessing it. What I don't understand is why she is not held accountable for her actions. She put her own interest above those two little girls. And yet, the school is held responsible for not placing her with families; consequently, Ms. Cruz is awarded a hefty sum for her supposed injustices. Hmm! May I ask a very pertinent question to the commentators and journalists of this and other articles regarding this incident between the plaintiffs and defendants...What happened to the injustices done to the two little girls?! Have we allowed ourselves to become so misguided by this case that we have forgotten what is truly at stake here - the lives of two little innocent girls. And to top it off , this whole thing has been turned into a 16th century "witch" hunt with Mr. Gaylord, Mrs. Roth, and the English Nanny & Governess School being burned at the stake. While your busy burning them, two little girls go unnoticed. Shame on you all!! Lynette Wommer, CPN
When I first heard it I knew. Then it was " Satriani who?" Because it seemed that Vai had passed him as THE hit guitarist back then. All of the sudden, here they came! One after another trying their luck at guitar instrumentals. Bad timing. Most flopped poorly as Grunge and Nirvana along with Alice in Chains had arrived. The two still standing to this day? Vai and Satch. I am not surprised!
Your article on the English Nanny & Governess School in May of 2008 was nicely done. As a former 1995 graduate of the school, I enjoyed reading it. I much enjoyed the school and my successful placement with one of their clients in Westchester County, NY - a professional, kind and compassionate, Hindu family with three wonderful children.
I am very grateful to the school for the professionalism they instilled in me and my classmates. It was a wonderful experience and led to a ten plus career as a Certified Professional Nanny. Mrs. Roth was very kind and soft spoken. To this day, I still remember her picking me up at the Cleveland airport when I flew in and taking me to the off campus apartment complex where the other students and I would be staying. I begged her not to get my luggage out of her trunk as I could do it, but she wouldn't hear of it. Very pleasant women.
I have researched "nanny" history and came across a book, although I don't remember neither the title nor the author, which detailed the true lives of a few European nannies. One was British and was placed with either an East Indian or Middle Eastern family. the young women had to wear the local cultural attire as part of her work. The book chronicled nannies from the 18th and 19th century. A very interesting and informative read. It shed light on how babysitters were considered for the poor and nannies were for the wealthy. One interesting note according to the author was that the nannies sometimes came out of the farming communities. An amazing history that we modern nannies came from!
Thank you again for the walk down "memory lane."

Sounds like a good place to watch the festivities!
