day after he announced his return to CLE
As for the GOP, its members will descend upon our town, do their dirty business and leave. It will be much like a one night stand with all the terms and conditions carefully drawn out. Everyone will know what to expect and when it's all over, Cleveland will be just like Tampa in 2012: unchanged save for a few more coins in our pockets, maybe some kudos.
|Hoops, Erin style|
This crowd is not expecting a one night stand. We are expecting a long and splendorous affair. We are expecting trophies glittering with magic dust and happily ever-afters. Dangerous territory that, considering our first tumble between the sheets with this guy produced no trophy, but instead just an empty bed festooned with a tangle of sweaty sheets. Love is strange.
In other news that did not garner headlines in California or Kansas or Florida, as a beautiful dawn spread across the Northcoast this morning, the last of the old I-90 Innerbelt Bridge got blasted into oblivion.
I took photos of the new Innerbelt Bridge when it was under construction last year about this time. This is one of my favorite views of the city. From this bluff, you can see a hundred years of bridge history. This photo only captures a small angle of the panorama, but you get the idea.
So an old bridge comes down and a new one goes up as the Cleveland skyline quietly watches on. This is the real Cleveland. It was here when LeBron was not. It will survive whatever the GOP dishes out. And I will be here, a solid advocate, revealing this place in my funny way and seducing people who least expect it.
Yikes! Erin has made me Cleveland-curious!
Now let's take a walk along the Cuyahoga River. I know the most fascinating path.
