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

I agree about St. Louis being a hot baseball town. It was just one example. We're still 26th. though. I agree that Cleveland is a bandwagon town. This is an exciting team that made it to the World Series and is in 1st place. I would love to see higher attendance. I agree that people can watch on television, but they can do that in any city. I don't think the St. Louis economy is bustling all that hard. In St. Louis, people also have living expenses. But again, we're 26th. Our ranking has barely increased after making the World Series. Indians games are some cheap ass entertainment. I guess not compared to sitting at home, but as far as going out and paying for something, it's pretty cheap.

District tickets are always $13 and upper deck tickets are often $13 or sometimes less. District tickets come with $4 loaded value. Tickets can be found online even cheaper for the less desired games like on weeknights.

I don't see why you need to buy merchandise to go to an Indians game. I would guess the majority of the people that attend games do not buy merchandise every game.

One can bring any food they want into a game and even a bottle of water. You don't really have to drink beer, but if you really need to get your alcohol on to enjoy yourself, there are ways to get it in if you use your head a little bit.

Parking is among the cheapest I have seen. I have been to 20+ ballparks. There are shuttles from places like Great Lakes Brewery and $5 parking is easy to score, and even cheaper parking than that can be found.

In my opinion, like you said, Clevelanders are bandwagoners, and that is the issue. I don't buy the excuses. The Indians bend over backwards to try to accommodate all of the ridiculous excuses. Currently, the not spending money and bad team excuses don't work. It's not expensive to go to an Indians game. No one has money for games, but the more expensive playoff games always sell out. Hmm...

Re: “Horse Collapses Downtown, Igniting Renewed Fury Over Horse-Drawn Carriages in Cleveland

It's alright for horses to have jobs and do work, they have done that for centuries. The problem is being mistreated by their owners. This is a horrible story and if that poor horse is being "retired" someone should have the opportunity to adopt him so that he can live out the rest of his years in a pasture. Otherwise he will go Sugar Creek and the slaughterhouse. That will be his reward for his years of hard work.

Re: “Horse Collapses Downtown, Igniting Renewed Fury Over Horse-Drawn Carriages in Cleveland

Who the hell are their customers? Drunken Millennial bros and their arm candy in the Flats? Yupster tourists who want to look cool? Hipsters who want a "romantic" vehicle in which to give their future brides a ring with a big shiny rock?

Horses have to suffer unspeakable cruelty and inhumane conditions...for THESE entitled pieces of shit?

How many people reading this thread are longtime residents of Cleveland...or lifers, born and raised in this city? Fess up...WHEN was the last time YOU rode in a horse-drawn carriage?

In my 25 years here, I have NEVER, not once, ridden in one of them. Never felt the need or the desire. And not once in all the decades before that, when I lived in Chicago, did I want to do so.. And I don't feel deprived, or think I have missed much. Riding in one will never be on my bucket list.

Other cities have banned these carriages. New York and Chicago have put heavy restrictions on their routes, and strictly monitor the care of these animals. For all I know, they don't even allow them in NYC or Chicago anymore...I don't get to either city all that much.

Who the hell allowed them to travel up one of the steepest streets in town? WTF? Horrible. Inexcusable.

Frankly, I don't even see the need for such conveyances...not when it condemns these creatures to utter misery so that a few elitist assholes can have a thrill.

Get rid of them. Now.

And after you are done reading my pissed-off rant, do something positive...sign the petition.

p,s, I will think twice about ever having a shandy on the patio at the Treehouse again.
Thanks for the heads-up.

Re: “Peter Asher & Albert Lee

The Telegraph has an outstanding online article from November 2016 - under the headline - "Peter Asher and Albert Lee perform A World Without Love in exclusive music session". And a little trivia pulled from the story......Asher's mother taught legendary producer George Martin to play the oboe.

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

Thank you for circulating this piece.
My wife and I saw this man while traveling in the Middle East. First at Karak Castle where our tour guide joked that he was the ghost of a crusader. We then saw him again at Petra climbing on the temple.

Re: “Cleveland Chain Reaction Narrows Search to 10 Slavic Village Finalists

I'm so proud of this project and all of our great partners who are making it happen. This is an urban development machine like no other! While most projects like this would still be doing feasibility studies, we are going from zero to a million in 9 short months! You'll see it all culminating this year in Slavic Village. COSE, Cleveland Neighborhood Progress, Fox8, Kenny Crumpton, Cleveland Foundation, the City of Cleveland, the Slavic Village CDC-----all joined together and are making it happen! It's really exhilarating! Maybe we should do it again???

Re: “Horse Collapses Downtown, Igniting Renewed Fury Over Horse-Drawn Carriages in Cleveland

If this horse is being 'retired' that is the carriage euphemism for going to auction. He will no doubt head to Sugar Creek - a notorious kill buyer auction. If that owner thinks this 'job' is so easy...he should have to pull a carriage full of humans in roller skates up and down that hill....

Sounds like he had metal shoes on the horse (SLIPPERY) and the carriage was overloaded.

Someone needs to be aware this horse is going to auction to really give him a good home an d not a one way ticket to Canada for slaughter.

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

It may be a smaller market, but it's been the hottest baseball town in the country for a long, long time...and consistently outdraws much larger cities in the Midwest and on both coasts.

Cleveland's problems are many...it's a bandwagon town...people don't jump on board unless the Tribe is a consistent winner. Some people still haven't gotten the message that downtown is no longer an urban jungle, and are afraid to leave their suburban couches.

And then there's the local economy...some people just can't afford to go in person anymore,because they need to do other things...like pay for food, gas, utilities, medicine, and rent. Others are just priced out...tickets and parking and food and beer and merch really add up fast...and watching on cable is cheaper and more comfortable.

Cleveland and St. Louis are like apples and oranges...they are both fruit and both round...but then the comparison stops.

Re: “Cleveland Praised, Clinic Scrutinized in Buzzy National Coverage

So Lost Angles finally gets the word...that Cleveland...CLEVELAND?...is becoming hip, slick, and cool.

So wrapped up are they...in their own SoCal hype and Hollyweird horse crap...that they seem to have missed the buzz about Northeast Ohio...for at least the last three years. If not more.

Too busy being parochial and provincial and endlessly gazing in their gilded mirrors to notice anything else about anyone else, anywhere else..

So they trot out the same old, lame old...mistake-on-the-lake, CMA, Rock Hall, West Side Market, trendy microbrewery, bridges, burning river, yadda yadda, blah, blah, blah.

Buzzy? Yeah...as in BuZZZZZZZZZZZy (yawn, snore). SSDY.

Re: “Cracker Celebrates 25th Anniversary with Rousing Show at the Music Box

Cracker played all of my favorites including "Sweet potato" "wedding day" and the encore song that I yelled out at the end to play, "where have those days gone" This was my 6th Cracker concert since 1994 and third time to see Cracker at Music Box. I have seen them with Camper Van Beethoven twice including the January 2017 show at Music Box. I met Johnny Hickman after the show at the CD and T-shirt table. Thank you Cracker and Music Box for a great show again!!!

Re: “Marie's Restaurant of St. Clair-Superior is a True Neighborhood Spot

Best meat dishes in Cleveland. Made-from-scratch stuffed cabbage, potato dumplings, fruit pies, soups, schnitzel and savory goulash. Repeat customers know the value of these generous portions of home-cooked, flavorfull meals. Single diners as well as big families feel welcomed by the family who run this comfort-food establishment. Look for local politicians and legal eagles in the lunch crowd. They know the best places to dine. They've found it at Marie's.

Re: “Horse Collapses Downtown, Igniting Renewed Fury Over Horse-Drawn Carriages in Cleveland

Getting "fat on food" with "no work ever again" is also a cruelty. As a professional horsewoman, I can testify that horses need a job that affords dignity and praise and just the right amount of nutritious food. (And ideally a big pasture with lots of sunshine , fresh air, and other horses.) Overfed, underactive horses suffer from founder, colic, and other physical, mental, and emotional problems.

Omg! We saw this guy in New Orleans in May. We thought he was a ghost in St. Louis No. 1 cemetery but then we saw him later in his armor in the quarter at strip clubs!
