Re: “City Council Begins Q Deal Deliberations, Cavs' Cheerleaders are No-Shows

Whenever I see such dereliction of duty to constituents, I have to wonder, what do these City Council members have to gain? Is there direct bribery? Are they thinking someday they will stand there pointing at the stadium saying "I helped build this."? What exactly would cause them to continue to mortgage a city's future to enrich a billionaire? Are they scared of money? Scared of power? Hoping they get invited to some high-roller parties? Is it vanity, or ignorance? Maybe they think if they say NO they will be cast as not progressive enough? These people need to get a spine and tell Big Sports Money to take a hike.

Re: “Coming Soon: The City Diner in Old Brooklyn

I wish Mr. Michalski the very best success! The location is in a great area in Old Brooklyn and there are lots of great folks around that area. It is great to see that the property has been updated and will no longer be vacant. Kudos to the owner and staff!!!

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

I saw him again, yesterday, at Willard Park. He turned up to the Resist Fascism rally/march.
He's now wearing a metal bucket on his head as part of his costume.

He got in one guy's face. And, there was a woman in her religious outfit, and he started shouting anti-Islam comments at her. Pure racist. He's not out there to stop us from being mean and violent (we're actually peaceful protesters...not that many people like to believe so) -- he's the one causing trouble. Most of the time he is ignored, but he goes on with disrupting everything.

Yesterday, the police talked to him but let him continue on. He kept shouting that these are HIS streets, and he's cleaning up, and he will be king.

Re: “Billy Joel Delivers Marathon Concert at Progressive Field

Might have been even better if he played "The Larry Doby Boogie". It's basically the same song as Alan Freed's "Rock n' Roll Boogie" told to be by the late saxophonist Freddy "Taxi" Mitchell of the old Alan Freed band. Billy probably didn't know about it.

For better or worse.....depending on your political leanings......they seem to be on a path to become the local version of Michael Moore.

Worst concert I have seen in years. Just plain lazy, forgetting lyrics and just pooping off the performance. Save your money!

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

"Cleveland fans have held up their end of the bargain"

If this year's attendance is holding up the bargain, we're in trouble. Attendance is only good on a few select Friday and Saturday night games in mid-summer with fireworks and giveaways.

The Indians are 26/30 in MLB in attendance. That's pathetic for a team that was in the World Series last year. St. Louis, a smaller market, is averaging 7,000 more than the current capacity of Progressive Field.

Re: “Billy Joel Delivers Marathon Concert at Progressive Field

"Don't Ask Me Why" is a Billy Joel original. "A Day in the Life" was the Beatles song.

Re: “Book of 'Lost' Dead Boys Photos to Be Published in September

Before the Cleveland-Akron connection on the hardwood floor, there was the Dead Boys (Cleveland)-Devo (Akron) influence on the USA and UK punk/new wave scene....which can still be heard today.

Re: “Tom Petty Tribute by Shadow of Doubt (in the Supper Club)

I saw these guys at the Music Box Supper Club and they were great. By far the best tribute band I've seen. They are spot on with Tom Petty songs. Can't wait to catch them again at Slim and Chubby's in Strongsville August 26.

Re: “The 20 Essential Cleveland Bars

Sunset Grille on the same list as the VTR & Porko's??? Wow! Not even a mention of the Clifton Wine and Martini Bar. Sad that someone even put this list together. Those that like a good cocktail know there are more places out there that aren't even on the radar like the Blue Point Grille Bar at Happy Hour. Prosperity Social Club or the Bourbon Barrel too. The Sunset Grille was really a laugher...

Any performance longer than 2 and 1/2 hours gets tiresome............except sex.

Yep. It's hard, 'specially when they hear "Nerk, Ahia"

I live in north Los Angeles county now, so when I return to CBus, I mess with my friends and ask them to pronounce "Sepulveda." and "Cuahuenga"

Yes, I am mean to them.

Re: “Billy Joel Delivers Marathon Concert at Progressive Field

A Springsteen concert is much longer than a marathon.
It's more like a dog sled race across the entire length of Siberia.

Re: “Billy Joel Delivers Marathon Concert at Progressive Field

I am sure this was a great show, heard that from many who were there. How can you refer to it as a marathon? If it was an hour longer it would have been the length of an average Springsteen concert.
