  1. Seems to missing several towns.....Bryan (Williams Co.), Napoleon (Henry Co.), Defiance (Defiance Co.), Wauseon (Fulton County) just to name a few.
  2. I'd be interested to here what some think a good use of that building will be. That section of town has always struck me as clean and tidy but pretty quiet and reserved outside of office hours and special events obviously due to the strong corporate presence and in the immediate area whose buildings tend to lack good street presence, liveliness, and color. Preserving the building's facade and overall scale would also pose a challenge to getting any kind of vibrant use there. Not saying it can't be done but it could require some pretty creative thinking.
  3. Yikes! I'm not quite even sure where to begin. Can't say that is the kind of environment I would prefer to work in. Way too cold and harsh for my taste.
  4. I found Wilmington to be pretty charming and pleasant when I was there a year ago. There are a lot of places down south I don't understand why anyone is attracted to them but Wilmington was not one of them. I certainly could see the draw.
  5. nicker66 is correct. Direct access is highly preferred and is needed to remain competitive in the convention luring market. Cleveland is getting a brand new hotel to go along with their brand new convention center right next door.
  6. They still need to find a proven center who isn't injury prone (Varejao), unproven (Powell), old (Haywood), or playing out of position (Thompson). I know that Zeller wasn't a world beater but he was young and serviceable. I wish they could've found a way to cut salary without losing him but what's done is done.
  7. Agreed. Six is way too much and having a state named Silicon Valley is just ridiculous. Perhaps to keep things at an even 50, they could strike a deal with every state east of New York to consolidate into a single state of New England, consider convincing the Dakotas, Carolinas, and Virginias to join together, make Alabama and Mississippi accept the inevitable truth that they are one and the same, tack Delaware into Maryland, and make New Jersey choose between Pennsylvania or New York. All of that and you leave out the Dakotas? The shame! You're description sounds like Pan Am-esq version of the Hunger Games! LOL May the odds ever be in Ohio's favor.
  8. Maybe it is just because I'm older but the All-Star game has lost some of its luster. The rosters are too bloated, the voting system is a mess, and requiring at least one player from each team dilutes the talent and robs guys who are more rightfully deserving (even if it means there are no Reds and/or Indians). I do think there should be an exception that at least one guy from the team hosting the game makes it in. If baseball is worried about too few teams being represented, get a salary cap and level the financial playing field. While I'm ranting, it also seems silly to have the game on a Tuesday night and doesn't finish until pretty late on the east coast. Move it to a weekend and bump the starting time up a bit. Finally, I don't like the fact that guys only play a few innings. This will never change because of injury concerns.
  9. Agreed. Six is way too much and having a state named Silicon Valley is just ridiculous. Perhaps to keep things at an even 50, they could strike a deal with every state east of New York to consolidate into a single state of New England, consider convincing the Dakotas, Carolinas, and Virginias to join together with their respective other half, make Alabama and Mississippi accept the inevitable truth that they are one and the same, tack Delaware into Maryland, and make New Jersey choose between Pennsylvania or New York.
  10. Seconded. I'm ashamed to admit that I have been bored enough to sit down and actually spend time thinking about this and sketching in PowerPoint.

    Can't help but think the first post should have been edited to include this:
  12. Couldn't they at least get a picture of him looking slightly ferocious?
  13. For those of you questioning the intent of this topic...this post summed it up nicely. While Chief Wahoo is the bone of contention at the moment, the team name debate is a obvious stepping stone away. As this is a discussion board, I thought it was an interesting topic to discuss. Those of you who do not wish to discuss the matter are under no obligation to. I sometimes get the feeling on this board that if certain members don't want to talk about something...they feel like no should be talking about it. It does not create for an open and welcoming environment at times. I'm not trying to make waves or complain...just an honest observation. In any case, in relation to my first paragraph, watching the Major League movie the other day really opened my eyes to how much things have changed in terms of perception of the Indians team name and mascot the past 20 years or so. I'm not sure some of those jokes and references would be found to be acceptable today.
