    I was assigned to come in early this morning to assist with traffic and crowd control because an old section of bridge from the highway was being demoed. Due to the nature of the explosives and materials we weren't permitted a direct line of sight during the actual explosion so I took a few aftermath pics. I was about 1/4 mile away when it went off and could feel the car get rocked pretty violently from the shockwave. :woot:

    I drove on the new bridge when I went to the Great Lakes Science Center on Monday. I'm happy things are moving along. Seems like that detour was there forever.

    It's too bad Lebron wasn't on the bridge at the time.

    People at my work were freaking the fuck out with joy. I was like, "Meh" and that's a direct quote.

    I guess you and HC aren't basketball fans, huh? Browns should be good, too. And I can't believe I just typed that. :hhh:

    I bought HC a Lebron t-shirt when he moved here (as a gift I bought him a shirts from every Cleveland sports team) and when Lebron left we donated it to Goodwill.
    That's the extent of my liking the Cavs. I prefer Cleveland baseball/football and even that in light doses. Except for SF Giants.
    Love them! :cheer:

    I can't believe Memphis signed Vince Carter. He was a key player for the Mavs but they didn't have the money free.

    I like the signing, but DAMN, would have been much better a few years ago. Griz have got to be the oldest team in the NBA now.
