Re: “Seventh-Inning Stretch

And They chose the boulevard back then because, well for one.. no flood wall yet, that wouldn't happen for another decade or so. Next, no interstate access,

the ballpark previous to that was on Mayo's island. That moved to the boulevard because it kept getting flooded. And then the ballpark and teams primary sponsors was one of the big local Scotts addition Breweries, that also happened to be a primary owner of the trolly line that ran down the center of the Boulevard. And it was done so so People would ride the trolly at off times, and go drink the breweries beer at the ballpark

Ever since then, Richmond's sports parks have been located in that centralized area.

Re: “The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus at the Richmond Coliseum

this reminds me that usually the night, or day before, the train parks behind Legend Brewing Company and you can watch the big animals disembark and wak over the Manchester bridge from there, consequentially, after the last nights performance,you can watch the animals march back

Re: “McDonnell Says All Lawmakers Everywhere Are as Sleazy as He is Alleged to Be

Poor guy.. traditionally, governorship of Virginia is a easy spring board to the senate... kinda the consolation prize for being a constitutional one term-er.

while I am sure the former first lady of the state had a lot to do with it the whole fiasco, throwing your spouce under the bus if very bad form, and "well, EVERYONE ELSE WAS DOING IT!" is not a legitimate excuse. for ANY maleficence.

we once fired a guy because he got caught smoking pot inthe walk in cooler, he did the whole "but everyone else does it!!" we said, wel, that may be, but those guys have the decency to go behind the dumpster to do it, and YOU are the one that got caught!"

Re: “Disoriented: Directional Signs Won’t Be Up in Time for Cycling Tourists

It's all part of Richmonds long standing tradition of taking great and grand ideas to make our town a bigger and better place and shitting all over them till they are diluted to nonesence unless they are lining the pockets or are serving the vested interest of the select few of our betters or are silencing our select few lunatics..

A fine tradition that has been on going since at least the Church hill tunnel.

Re: “LETTER: Thirsty for Gwar

It should also be noted that Chalmers Brewing Co is making GWAR Impailed Pale ale via a shared proprietorship agreement with Cigar City brewing company in Florida. It was recently introduced at the last GWAR-B-Q. Brown distribution should be carrying it and you may be able to get some at Mekong

Re: “Shockoe Dig Reveals Mystery Safe

Perhaps, they may find Geraldo Rivera's credibility in there... or maybe a Beta form of his mustache?

Re: “Should We Rename the Devil's Triangle? Readers Weigh In

Step 1: create a public outcry over a neighborhood nickname that was created 35+ years ago that has already become a source of local charm for any of the local residents who might actually know that is what the neighborhoods nickname is/was.

step 2:???

step 3: Profit!



I for one refuse to be socially engineered in such a blatant matter until Legend Golden Ale is available on draft at the Viceroy
