Trump vetoes Patriots' Super Bowl win
I wouldn't put it past him... (sorry mods, I won't go any further)

Quote

Since he's buddies with Brady, Belichick and Kraft, it would be more likely that he would veto a Falcons win.

The worst act of Terrorism (domestic or otherwise) prior to Oklahoma City was in Bath, Michigan and involved a car bomb in addition to a school being rigged up for months to explode.  It is actually right down the street from where I went to High School, I'm amazed at how much it really is a forgotten and quite frankly f$@#ed up piece of American history:

This was a stop on one of the Michigan road meets a few years ago.

Wasn't so risky for me. I knew exactly where that click was going to take me.  :-D

Arguably, that lands in #3, after the NY Giants' Brooklyn Dodgers' move to San Francisco Los Angeles (because of West Coast expansion) and Irsay using moving vans to move the Colts (because...moving vans).

I'm on 3 wiki sites where my fantasies come true: Fictional TV stations (I own KNDU 14 Palm Springs with subchannel 41), fictional major league baseball teams (the Buffalo Bisons with a farm team in Sacramento - the Golden Retrievers), and even a fictional country (the Republic of Oklahoma, but the eastern half with territory claims in western Antarctica). Would it be great if I owned or ruled anything?

Agreed.  That thread topic is much too long.

Clinching parking garages

Does anyone else here "collect" clinched parking garages?  To count as clinched, I need to have driven on every ramp/lane and parked in every space (handicap and motorcycle spaces don't count, though).  I've been mapping my clinches for the last two years or so, and I was just curious to see if anyone else does this too.  I'm considering starting a website for fellow members to map their parking garage clinches, similar to the clinched highway mapping websites that have popped up from time to time.
