On a related note, is Vancouver officially the Detroit of Canada? Detroit isn't really embraced by other big, "traditional" cities in America, just like it sounds (going from sportswriters here, so I could be totally off) Vancouver is somewhat snubbed by Toronto and Montreal. Plus, they burn the fucker down every time there's a big event, win or lose. See also: Detroit. That seems to be the more salient point. Rioting aside, my heart really goes out to Vancouver. I know I'm not the only one that really thought this was the year.
Didn't watch baseball last night because of hockey, but Pittsburgh did climb above .500 for first time in June since 1999. I think they have another one with Houston, so maybe they can start building a cushion to stay above.
I don't have much else to write here today, I'm deep in the thick of house hunting. We thought we had a place, but then it turns out we were looking at the wrong address. The right place was. . .well, not great. The price made a lot more sense then. Thought we had a second place, but it was in Wingate (pop. 300ish?), which turns out means no DSL. There were other issues, too, but that was the straw that broke the camel's back for me. But, a Wabash professor came through with a beauty of a place at the right price, so now we're working with him. Wish us luck!
