Winter outerwear, Cleveland style

2013 was the first year Clevelanders participated in Cupid's Undie Run. My bestest buddy Bob Perkoski took this photo at the event. It was 25 degrees that day. Am I worried about Cleveland's younger generation? HELL NO.

This is the renaissance. This is my daughter's Cleveland. God how I love this town.

Cleveland. February 17, 2013.

Today the entire younger generation of the City of Cleveland, OH died of complications of exposure from running around in their underwear on 2/16/13 in sub-freezing temperatures. The city is now entirely populated by middle aged newspaper reporters possessed with sunny dispositions. And so it goes.

Dunno, RJ, you might have it reversed. That brunette with the sunglasses looks like she might actually be causing heart attacks.

And for further viewing: Something that makes me incredibly happy.

Because people LOVE to run around in their pink or red undies, regardless of temperature, right?

Gotta love the Hansen Brothers glasses.

Too bad state law forbids showing the event in between the younsta's solo routine and the gathering of that vast throng*: The distribution of Genny Pounders, condoms, and 10%-off coupons from a reputable bail bondsman.


PS: The WV was one digit off my address. Spooooky....

*Throngs. Not thongs. Sorry.

I think the whole thing is just beautiful.

Did someone say condoms?

Isn't there a problem with many of the cities along the lakes where they became very dependent on single industries that no longer exist. Basically a WV coal-mining town where the mine has closed. And in essence until there is another one or many exporting firms out of the city to give a reason for existence the population will leave.

A good bit of gumption with those people all the same.

Thanks for dropping in, roaring.

Cleveland is the best kept secret in the world. Plus, I'm here.
