They also don't allow games or matches to be scheduled on Sundays. Not an issue for football but for other sports, it would definitely create scheduling challenges.

How would this work between sports? If the football team is bad, the rest of the teams also get relegated? 

How about Northwestern, who has won multiple national titles in women's lacrosse in the last decade? If they have a bad football year, their membership in the B1G is revoked and they no longer receive any of the revenue associated with it?

I'm not sure what you do but I'm pretty sure you weren't dealing with a Collective Bargaining Agreement which spelled out restrictions on salary and for which company you could work during the first beginning of your career. Also, those higher paying years are for when the player "peaks" as most people agree athletes tend to peak in their mid to late 20s.

The article doesn't say anything about Final Cut being the only 4 star restaurant, just that they were awarded it. I'm pretty positive M at Miranova has already been awarded the 4 star restaurant and I would be surprised if The Refectory wasn't as well.

According to the police report, the punch happened as he was trying to break free from someone holding him back.

"Things got out of control and I started to go after the victim," police quoted Oden in the report. He said the relative and witness tried to hold him back, but he swung his arms trying to break free and punched the victim.

1. I think Lamarcus Aldridge and Blake Griffin might have a question about Love being the best PF in the game

2. Wiggins will be a restricted free agent after his 4th season. At which point, the Cavs could match any offer he gets. As long as the Cavs want him, he isn't going anywhere

Cavs cannot sign Love next year. They are currently at the cap and that is before Kyrie's extension kicks in next year. The only way they could acquire Love would be thru a trade. 

That being said, I don't understand why the Cavs can't wait until December/January to see what they have in Wiggins. Maybe he turns out to be the superstar everyone expects and the Cavs don't feel like they need "another piece" in order to contend for a title. Maybe Anthony Bennett turns a corner and begins to play like he was worthy of the #1 pick, and the Wolves change their mind about not accepting a trade without Wiggins. There is no hurry here no need to make a trade right now. That's the point of the trade deadline!

EDIT: Sorry for stating almost exactly what Unky Buck said below.

The one in Bexley has sadly closed. The building they were in is being demolished/re-purposed to make way for the new multifloor Giant Eagle they are putting in Bexley

Barrel 44 has every scotch you can imagine and offers flights so you can try multiples. It is in the Short North right on High Street.

Comment 23 Apr 2014

I agree. I am almost rooting for this to happen. It has been so long since they have been decent that I am starting to feel bad for them up there. Then I picture Brady Hoke and his "Ohio" talk, and the hatred ramps back up to 10

I'm not saying I wasn't disappointed by the trade deadline moves but it followed in line with Jarmo and Davidson's philosophy of building for the future without sacrificing the present. The Gaborik trade was not a salary dump, although that's the way it may appear from the outside. The Blue Jackets actually retained 50% of his remaining salary meaning they are paying the Kings to have him on their roster rather than the CBJ roster. The Gaborik trade was about acquiring additional assets to use for the future as we were not going to resign him for a multitude of reasons and would have been left with nothing at the end of the season. 

As we have gotten healthy, available forward spots have become limited, as you mentioned in your post about Umby and Atkinson being benched in recent weeks. If Gaborik had still been here, that would have meant an additional "benching" at the forward spot on top of the ones we are already seeing. If anything requires second guessing, I would say it's their failure to hold leads late in the third period, not the moves that were made at the trade deadline.
