    Astros had the best offense in baseball but are sputtering right now. Yankees before the All-Star game shut them down and the ChiSox came into Minute Maid and shut down the bats. The mystery of when Alex Bregman will be back continues, the injury must have more severe than they thought at first. He injured his quad running to 1st base back in mid-June. Here we are more than a month later and still no timeline for his return.

    The Cleveland Guardians! I like it. I'm guessing the Cleveland fans will be lukewarm at first, but I believe it will catch on. Nice video, narrated by Tom Hanks.

    22F0E160-FE46-4BBD-97EC-FEAB795F0A26.jpeg When you drive into the city on the freeway, there are two Art Deco guardian statues so the new nickname does have a connection with a landmark of Cleveland.

    I wonder what will happen to all the memorabilia with Indians across the Jersey, or Chief Wahoo on it? Will the HOF fame scrub those photos?

    They better superimpose black squares over anything that connotates Indians in the HOF or someone will be offended. We must erase history !

    St. Louis song birds. Because red is linked to Republicans, and Cardinals have a religious connotation. Keep letting the idiots have the eraser in their hands.

    My bad Mr. Baker. Allow me to rephrase.

    What a large quantity of fornicated Bovine Bowel movement.

    As long as “Hoofwanking
    bunglecunt” is not a forbidden phrase, I can live with SB’s policy on eliminating profanity from our daily discourse.

    Actually the Pillars are not on the freeway; they are on the Lorain/Carnegie Bridge which is a major thoroughfare leading right up to Progressive Field which is on the corner of Carnegie and Ontario.

    Bob Hope's father was a stonemason who helped construct the pylons. The bridge was finished in 1932 and in 1986 was renamed the "Hope Memorial Bridge", though nobody is certain if it was done to honor Bob Hope, his father, or the Hope family in general.

    The Cuyahoga County Engineer wanted to widen the bridge and remove the pillars in 1976...even called them "monstrosities". So their defenders got the bridge listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

    For those of you who know Cleveland history...this name change was a real missed opportunity. :D

    I don't know Cleveland history, which, I guess, is why I don't get the t-shirt reference. Can you enlighten us?

    When I was a kid growing up, Friday nights were always the time to watch "Shock Theater" but we always thought of it as the Ghoulardi Show. I tried to never miss it, even though it was late. Ernie Anderson created the character and he would do incredibly bizarre stuff. The show ran from 1961 or so to 1966. He would usually berate the movie he was showing, and tease and ridicule anyone and everyone...local politicians, the city of Parma and it's Polish roots, whatever. He would blow things up with firecrackers on the show. Tim Conway was a friend and appeared on the show. Drew Carey frequently wore a Ghoulardi tee shirt when appearing later on his own show as a tribute. After he quit doing the show (kind of for unknown reasons...maybe he just got tired of being Ghoulardi) Anderson went out to LA and did a lot of voice over work for commercials and for ABC TV.
