I am very proud of our finest, doing what they can to reduce the experience of those who choose to support our failing football team, while on the other side of town peoples homes are getting broken into. Go figure...

What a great way to show hospitality to visiting football attendants, 153 parking tickets. It's ok because we will never see them again. Book more home games, it's a money maker. sic

Or maybe those 153 drivers should obey parking regulations, not block driveways or intersections, etc.

One of those 153 drivers was blocking my driveway. It didn't take long for the police to show up and he wasn't parked there anymore. Thanks goes out to the law enforcement involved. (and the tow truck company)
