    From everything I’ve seen and heard they certainly did....even perfect weather

    Of course they did.  They killed it for all the NBA finals games, World Series, NCAA Wrestling tournament, MLB All Star game, and they will kill it for the NBA All Star game.  

     

    Cleveland should host a Super Bowl.

    It's a Mike Polk video. You have to watch his first two "hastily made Cleveland tourism videos". The new one was painting Cleveland as nice, his first two, the opposite. Things like all our fish have aids and our biggest export is crippling depression. They were pretty funny, and one of the originals ended with "at least we're not detroit".

    I was in Cleveland for the weekend and loved it. Each day was awesome at the ballpark. The stuff at the convention center was pretty cool too. My wife is a Tigers fan, and she got some pictures with Leyland, Cecil Fielder, and me being the Tribe fans, got pictures with Jim Thome, Carlos Baerga, and Kenny Lofton. 

    The HR derby was freaking awesome. My wife caught a ball during the derby, off of Acuna Jr. I nearly caught one, but got mauled trying to get it. 

    The game was good. Hand almost blew the damn thing, but the Biebs was awesome. My seats were near the bullpen, so I got some great shots of the pitchers warming up. 

    The city did a hell of a job as it felt like going to any ballgame. Living in the DC/ MD area, I also forget how nice people in Ohio are.

    The convention center FanFest stuff is awesome. I met Barry Larkin, Dave Winfield, Frank Thomas, tv announcers, Tom Browning, Tony Perez, Jennie Finch and others. Pretty sure Tony Perez got a little handsy with my wife lol and Jennie Finch is a 6’2 Barbie Doll. It was only $20 a ticket but uli got all mine free that year.
