Re: “At the All-Star break, a Conversation With Jason Kipnis on the Team's Struggles, His Struggles, and How They Can Get Back to the World Series

Well written, informative, good insight into Kipnis and the way he thinks! I think Kipnis had the worst post WS time because of where he lives off-season. For that, I am truly sorry he felt trapped, it had to be difficult. I hope that the season goes better than expected and we are playing baseball until late in October! Go Tribe-We Believe!

Minnesota and Kansas City apparently did not believe the Hot Stove League memo that a World Series rematch between Cleveland and the Cubs was a sure bet.....and the Central was not supposed to yield any tangible division derby for October.

A lot of HEMA instructors across the world have just read this in dispair. Over the last couple of decades we've worked hard to make it inclusive. Everyone is welcome no matter what their ethnicity, gender, sexual preferences, religion or ability. As long as they are prepared to respect their training partners.

The last thing we need is people with a terrible grasp of medieval history (historical research is a big part of HEMA) using it as an excuse to play out some sort of white supremacist Bruce Lee fantasy.

Please don't connect us with this idiot

I saw this guy running around at the March for Science in downtown Cleveland last April. I witnessed him grabbing an anti-trump sign from a woman, ripping it up and throwing it on the ground. Strange individual. Thanks for the article Scene. I had the same question, "Who is this guy?"

Buffalo? I'm guessing that's where his family lives, and where he is originally from. Why go there otherwise?

Nobody here seemed to miss his, presence either. Without him, the rally and march were boringly peaceful, with the usual speechifying and rhetoric, most of which had nothing to do with Trump.

He was seen at the impeachment rally in Buffalo. He was armored in an American flag tunic with his stars on it. Reports are that he was verbally demoralizing protesters; eating peaches, saying he would TAKE power after their impeachment process was successful.

Re: “Meet the Clevelanders Climbing Bridges and Chasing Rooftops for the Best Views in the City

Doing this shit makes me laugh even harder. Whatta fucking stupid way to die. And for what? Likes?

Saw JoSEPH "Lawless" Melendez at his "fake news" book signing in Lakewood. He's a suburban (N. Olmsted) con man and an a-hole.

His whole shtick is nothing but a scam--designed to get suckers to buy his books for $35 a pop. What bullshit. Don't be a chump!

He wasn't at the Impeachment March. Unlike in other places, the turnout was not all that large.
Having it on a holiday weekend, in a family-oriented town like this one, guaranteed a small crowd,
In bigger cities ( NY- L.A. - Chicago) a lot more people have fewer family ties than they do here.

Maybe this dude was having a few burgers and brewskis with his relatives--which is what so many folks do here on holidays.

Re: “A Brave Never Tells

p.s. - if the media ever seizes on the hazing rituals after what just happened at Penn State the BSA would be in serious trouble. The loss of LDS is 185,000 fewer Scouts. Imagine what parents are okay with their kid being hazed at these rituals. #notsmart #notloyal #notbrave #notkind #notcourteous #nottrustworthy The entire ritual violates the very core of Scouting.

Re: “A Brave Never Tells

The problem with the Pipestone ritual is that it violates the Scout Law, the Scout Oath and the Youth Protection policy. In no way does the BSA condone any person physically forcing a child to their knees or picking them up or putting their hands over their mouths. The Scouts call this a ritual of courage. It is defined everywhere else in the country as hazing. The BSA has documents on council web-sites where the leaders say it is not "hazing or bullying" but the fact that they say that does not make it so. If you demean a child by shoving them to the ground for your ritual ceremony you are in fact hazing the child.

hazing
hziNG/
nounNorth American
noun: hazing; plural noun: hazings

the imposition of strenuous, often humiliating, tasks as part of a program of rigorous physical training and initiation.

The BSA allows the ritual to continue and forces the children to disobey the Scout Law - A Scout is Obedient. If a Scout parent asks about the ceremony the children are sworn to silence. Why would you ever train a child to not speak to their parents? That in and of itself violates "to keep myself mentally strong and morally straight" Is it "good fun?" So was the drinking at the fraternity party at Penn State until the kid died. Now 18 people will be heading to jail. If the ritual accidentally injures a Scout, what do you think the BSA's insurance will say, "Oh well, accident" or "Someone pushed a child into a fire by jumping out and scaring the shit out of him?" Yeah, no your insurance does not cover that. And God forbid, you jump and scare a child and they get injured, what defense does the BSA have against the parents lawsuit? Zero. It's a dangerous thing to do for a "ritual" that has lasted nearly 100 years. But the BSA and 7 Ranges tread on dangerous path with a ritual like this and it will one day backfire o them. I'm sure it already has and the child was silenced.

Re: “A Man Who Dresses in Medieval Garb and Walks Around Downtown is a Strange Ranger. But is He Dangerous?

Was he at the Impeachment March yesterday?
I didn't see him.

I saw him at the May Day March. He was a little crazy there. Saw him running around, and yelling stuff. Didn't see him attack anyone. I did happen to get him on video saying, "No one wants to fight me." -- I don't know if he was joking or not...
I saw somewhere that he was at the Pride In The CLE. I didn't see him there. Or at the Gay Pride parade/festival.


Maybe with all this news about him, he's staying quiet.

Re: “A Man Who Dresses in Medieval Garb and Walks Around Downtown is a Strange Ranger. But is He Dangerous?

Kindly point out where I stated I was going to do any shooting. Or that I even own a weapon that could shoot. Wake up, a-holes...and smell the kielbasa...this is Cleveland. It's a large and often-dangerous city. Not just for the shmuck in this story...for anyone.

All it takes is doing the wrong thing, at the wrong place, at the wrong time, to get oneself into very some deep shit...and very quickly... with a consequence such as a beating, or even losing one's life.

It can happen almost anywhere...on a train, on a street, cutting someone off on the road...don't you pontificating asshats even pay attention to the local and national news? Nasty world we live in now.

Sometimes, all it takes is sheer bad luck...such as that poor dude who died needlessly on Easter Sunday because some jamoke had a fight with his girlfriend and wanted to post a senseless murder on social media. And so...Cleveland once again made world headlines for all the wrong reasons.

Have you visited his final resting place? No? I didn't think so. Here's a head's up...it's in Lakeview Cemetery...near the gravesites of Alan Freed, Ray Chapman, and Harvey Pekar. That's enough GPS...now you're on your own.

Don't try to play shithouse lawyers with yourf groundless accusations, kids, and don't you dare put any words in my mouth.

Just saying...he picks the wrong adversary...not necessarily myself, mind you...and he could get seriously hurt or worse. Never once said I would be trying to shoot him if he shows up downtown at any near-future march...and don't even try to say that I did.

By the way...the guy is not harmless or unarmed. He has a martial arts background, and he has considerable expertise in edged weapons. Still...ever heard the old joke about bringing a knife to a gunfight? In these times, and in cities like this one, it's not all that funny anymore.

Let's see what happens if he shows up at the impeachment march today. I'm betting he won't. He might be crazy, but he's probably not stupid. At least, not as stupid as you guys seem to be.

Chuckles,
It sounds like you may be implying that a gunshot is proper punishment for knocking down a few signs, or at least that such retribution would be understandable. Are you willing to state your real name behind such a cowardly and inappropriate statement?

This guy is a damn hero. How do I contact him?

Also, someone report "Chuckles the Clown" for his credible threat of violence against an unarmed man.

Re: “A Man Who Dresses in Medieval Garb and Walks Around Downtown is a Strange Ranger. But is He Dangerous?

This guy is a colorful local that everyone knows. Some of you may recall Sir DoucheKnight has been here before and now he is back. He has every right to be a nutcase and he may or may not be dangerous, but now we know a lot more about him. So it's an appropriately newsworthy story. Every story does not have to be about the wonderful people doing great things around town, there is room in our media for stories about a few of the kooks too. So quit hating on the reporter. You are all grown ups, or mostly so, you can handle it.
