Dunno where you got that from my OP, otherwise I would have posted that was a city-endorsed parade.

Its also no wonder your ode the Tigers went unheeded, since the Tigers lost 119 games in 2003, not 2002.

Had really nothing to do with you.

It was a news outlet that you linked to, that didn't really differentiate the protest from an actual sanctioned parade - at least, as I read it, it didn't.

Apologies for mixing 2002 and 2003 up.

I was doing a lot of drugs and fucking a lot of whores in those two years; in all of my years of doing drugs and fucking whores, those two years probably stand out as the two biggest back to back years of doing drugs and fucking whores.

Me, I would probably just spend the time holding a car wash instead, and spend the proceeds on pornography (legal adult MILF Porn, of course, all models over 35) or actual hookers if I raised enough money, instead.
Hookers maybe, but there is a ginormous amount of MILF porn, both professional and amateur, which is freely available online. Never understood why anyone would pay to purview common porn nowadays, except for "live" webcam tete a tetes...or unless they were into the illegal type, which means perusing a version of the TOR browser to view the Darkwebs with some bitcoinage.

One of my neighbors has become quite adept @ befriending MILFs via social media, and convincing them into sexting him with some fairly racy photos and short vids. Me, I don't wanna risk getting caught or being maybe stalked by one or more who've been seduced into going that far.

I suspect it's still in the joke phase amongst a few fans, as it was last year.

Pretty sure this parade won't really happen either.
Here you go. It did happen.

It was a protest -- one Cleveland Police estimated between 2,500 and 3,200 people showed up to either watch or take part in.

I guess one could call the Ferguson riots a parade, if one wanted to.

The Lions and Browns franchises are defying the sheer odds of just making one appearance in a Superbowl game, when every other one else who has existed since the AFL-NFL merger has fielded @ least two teams, except for the Saints and Cardinals, who both made their first in consecutive seasons ('08-'09) The Saints also stand a dark-horse chance of playing in their second this year. If the Jags advance to the SB in the AFC playoffs, then that will leave only ONE other NFL franchise in the newer Texans.
