Lucas County Celebrates 1,000th Arena Announcement


(Toledo, OH) Commissioner Pete Gerken led the festivities today as the County Commissioners held a party for the 1,000th announcement of a new arena in downtown Toledo.

"We thought we were in trouble last week, when Carty started talking about a new arena on his bus tour," said Gerken, popping open a bottle of champagne. "He didn't actually promise anything, though, so we get to be recognized for number 1,000."

No specific location was named, but the commissioners believe that there are plenty of options for the new arena.

"Hey - what really matters is us getting to be the thousadnth press conference," said commissioner Tina Skeldon-Wozniak. "Many agencies have announced arenas before, but only the commissioners get the big 'M,'" she added, referencing the Roman numeral.

The lack of concrete proposals had at least one commissioner asking questions.

"I hate to be a conduit of bad news, but shouldn't we at least have something concrete before we make an announcement?" asked commissioner Maggie Thurber. "The voters in Lucas County demand at least one of those scale model thingys - they are not stupid."

you are wicked, but funny.
 
Too funny.
 
Awesome! Unfortunately you're pretty close to the truth.....haha
 
Wonder when the 2,000th announcement will come?
 
Has anyone heard anything about the Edison Steam Plant yet?
 
We need to build this arena so it can go belly up--a la Portside, etc., etc.--and we can start losing some serious taxpayer dollars.

Wasting money on Tom Chema dollars is chump change compared to what they'll lose when they build this turkey.
