    So waiting to see a Colorado Extreme event just so there is a photo of a big COX poster with some hot dogs on it from Burgertime.

    Yeah. I know you are all waiting too.
    Bomberman is a robot engaged in the production of bombs. Any robot that could escape the underground compound and make it to the surface could become human. Will he ever make it up to the surface? Once there, will he really become human?

    Wow what a list. Are there any in Ohio? I tried looking at each one listed but there's too many. Closest ones to me that I saw were Michigan and (I think) Pennsylvaina. BTW I live about 45 minutes north of Cincinnati.
