1 comment


Good afternoon, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you cancel that trip to Pennsylvania.

— Yuengling will be sold in Northeast Ohio starting October 3. The backlash and cries of "most overrated beer of all time" have started already. (NewsNet5)

— According to the ABJ, no city in America gave more money to the New York fire department after 9/11 than Akron. Good for you, Rubber City. (

— We apparently need updates on every project that Peter Lawson Jones participates in his new acting career. He recently met Matthew Fox and didn't get punched in the vagina. (

— You must really be an asshole to rob a 90-year-old man. Oh wait, look at that mullet. Yes, you are clearly that big of an asshole. (WOIO)
