Exactly.

It kind of reminds me of the radio ad (on either 1620 or 590, can't remember) for an Avril Lavigne concert several weeks back, held at the Mid-America Center in Council Bluffs, yet the radio ad made mention that this was Lavigne's "first trip to Omaha."

Not to mention the Omaha Lancers defecting to the other side of the river.

3:50pm - I don't think it was so much the Lancers "defecting" as much as it was that Aksarben didn't renew their lease and UNO hockey had already moved into the Civic.

Actually, it's pretty common in professional sports... look at New York and the NFL...

Oh yeah...I'm familiar with the NY Giants/Jets in NJ deal.

I just find it funny that the Lancers moved across the river, changed their name but then the "River City" portion of it didn't stick, so they went back to Omaha, though the team itself didn't.

Council Bluffs might as well just ask Omaha to annex them if they want to BE Omaha. ;-)

But does Omaha want CB? Nooo....they have those evil casinos....

Reminds me of the Casino vote in 2004...

Anti-casino: we don't want casinos, or we'll be as bad as those jerks in Council Bluffs.

Pro-casino: let's build a casino and stick it to those jerks in Council Bluffs.

10:37 AM...as I said...I am 23/20 and damn proud of it. So yeah...I do shop the Bluffs. What of it...Maybe you Omahans should get off your high horse and realize there seem to more and more Nebraska cars over here as of late. Hmmmm. Perhaps the Bluffs is not really that bad after all is it?

Counciltucky is not bad at all . . . if you're looking for cheap porn.

Then again . . . when you have the internet, why cross the river and risk having your IQ and your teeth suddenly come up missing?
