Also known as C-Town by natives, Cleveland is a famous city in the northern area of Ohio that may be even more popular then the capital of Ohio, Columbus. It borders Lake Erie and is known for extreme, ever-changing weather. It is also known for being the poorest city in the United States, very culturally diverse, and the origin of many rap/hip hop artists. There is a lot of cultural pride here, occasionally racism (Mostly the ever-ignorant Black vs. White. Both sides are guilty - Police specificly target blacks, and then there is a day called May Day where white people cannot attend school unless they want their ass kicked.) There are many gangs in Cleveland that mostly deal drugs and fight other gangs. Drugs and illegal substances are quite common here. The sports teams of Cleveland are the Indians (Baseball, was good in the 90s, offends Native Americans everywhere and has a big fluffy purple mascot named Slider,) Cavaliers (Basketball, now made famous by LeBron James and Usher,) Browns (Football, now returned and worse than ever,) Barons(Hockey, replaced the Lumber Jacks,) and Force (Soccer.)more...
If you go to Cleveland, you have to go to the Jake (Jacob's Field), the Q (used to be Gund Arena,) Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and the Hard Rock at least once. There's also something called the Warehouse District, West Side Market, Tower City, and other stuff if you're feeling adventurous.
Sorry if this sucked, I just thought Cleveland ne...
The Whitesboro seal shows a "friendly" wrestling match between the founder Hugh White and an Oneida (Native American) chief. Although it appears extremely racist to outsiders who see it more as a white man cruelly choking a native american to death.more...
People within and outside the area often become partial to the area food, which includes tomato pie, chicken riggies, and half moon cookies. Some popular local restaurants include Franco's Pizza, Tony's Pizza, and don't forget Joe's Pizza. The Whitesboro Star Bakery is also a nice place to get fresh, higher quality baked goods and breads, although most prefer Holland Farms of Yorkville since most people don't even know of the bakery's existence. Flagg St. is the area's centrally located park.
The town is apparently and/or approximately 98% white. Many Italian and Polish immigrants and white people make up the town's demographic. Most people either are trying to leave the area or have a high sense of pride in their area. Whitesboro is known primarily as a town of white mediocrity by outsiders. Some people from the area often appear to feel superior to other people within their economic class, when they are just as poor and are not so glamorous themselves.
Historically, the town is located over the old Erie Canal. which is now route 69, which is also known as the Oriskany Boulevard.
Whitesboro High School is home to the Whitesboro Warriors. Also, their football team is known as the Big Blue Wrecking Crew. Hockey a...
A very loose term or figure-of-speech referring to the north-central or central United States that is actually a collection of several geographic regions stretching from Ohio to the Dakotas and often include the Rustbelt (Ohio, Michigan, far northern Indiana and sometimes western Pennsylvania which isn’t really in the Midwest at all), the Great Lakes (Ohio, there’s Pennsylvania again, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and usually Minnesota) and the Great Plains (Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas, the Dakotas, Nebraska, Oklahoma and northern Texas). Sometimes, and for some reason, even Oklahoma and northern Texas are included. Other terms to refer to the Midwest are the Corn Belt, the world’s biggest cornfield, America’s Breadbasket, tornado alley and “fly-over territory.” Chicago, Detroit and Indianapolis are its largest single cities (when considering the Midwest as it is usually identified) while Illinois, Ohio and Michigan are its most populated states (unless you consider Texas as part of the Midwest). Other important cities include Columbus, OH, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Kansas City, Wichita, Omaha and sometimes Louisville, KY, Dallas, Oklahoma City or Tulsa may be included for some reason.more...
Chicago: very cosmopolitan. The Midwestern version of New York. It has a huge lakefront, tons of culture, diversity, museums, tons of shopping especially along Michigan Avenue, awesome architecture and the country’s second largest skyline after Midt...
The state capital and largest city of Indiana, and 12th largest in the U.S. (792,000) in a greater metro population of some 1.7 million people and growing. Indy is generally boring if you’re from places like Chicago or New York. But it remains in the same tier of cities like Louisville, Columbus, Cincinnati or Kansas City. It lacks motivation to get anything done—even filling the ungodly number of potholes on roads and widening busy city streets. The city is traditionally basketball crazy--being in Indiana, but with the success of the Colts and Payton Manning of the NFL, they have overshadowed the Pacers. The Super Bowl will even be held in Indianapolis in 2012. But the best thing about the Indy area is that it’s a great place to raise a family, and the cost of living is among the most affordable in the country. There’s a number of nice museums to see--the Childrens’ Museum (the world's largest), the NCAA Hall of Champions, the Indy 500 Hall of Fame Museum, the State Museum and Conner Prarie Settlement; and cultural events to attend (the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra is world renowned). But, unfortunately that’s it. The crime is getting too high with an especially stubbornly-high murder rate. The lack of street lamps and police patrolling the streets is almost unbelievable. This city seems to care more about building stadiums and the like rather than taking care of its residents. Property taxes are also very high. The people are also ignorant. Indianapolis Public Schools...more...
A name more often given to a girl... Unfortunately it is also given to a boy more than it should be... Although there are a few famous men who've been given this name.

"Without Francis Marion's brilliant guerilla warfare tactics during the American Revolution, we might all have been BRITISH!"
One of the best QB's in the NFL. Even though he has made some mistakes, it is obvious by his stats that he is one of the best players to play the game. He has already won 2 superbowls in his short career, and many believe he has already done enough to be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He also beat Shaquille O'Neal in basketball, and has numerous girls who are after his money.
person 1: Hey did you hear Roethlisberger has another assault charge?
person 2: Yeah, but those chicks are just after his money.
