I recently just worked the Pro Football Hall of Fame weekend. Friday was the concert with special guest Tim McGraw. Every fan had a great experience and enjoyed the concert. Next was the enshrinement ceremony. Once again fans saw their favorite enshrinees take center stage and accept the amazing offer. Lastly, the game was canceled but fans still had a memorable experience including a performance by Lee Greenwald and the Colts cheerleaders. Despite the unfortunate cancellation, the Hall of Fame attempted to ensure a worthwhile trip for its fans.

I do like the area I live in for the most part. Local business wise there is a car wash up the street that is only open sometimes. There is a few soul food places if you go further down the street which are decent. One popular boutique across the street in this plaza is owned by girls who use to attend the local high school. The fashion in there is different, I found a few things but it's cool to have something like that locally owned around. Most of our dairy queens are locally owned franchises as well. I love the gas stations minus the increase and decrease situations with prices. In my area I believe you can get most of anything within a distance. There isn't a hospital near only fifteen minutes away but there is stat-cares maybe five minutes away but they have a closing time at ten.
I live down the street from where the violence takes place its weird. There's this long street that if you go further down there's actually a good side to the city. The crimes are taken place in the same city such as shootings, fires on purpose and robberies. Not too long ago last year they sent out a letter saying everyone shouldn't go outside unless if they need to because there were drive byes going on because a local gas station clerk shot and killed three boys for trying to kill him and rob his store. The boys friends then wanted revenge and went on rampages around Canton. It was to the point where an innocent boy was shot in the arm riding his bike. I am blessed to not live directly in the area, but it's not more than 5 miles away.
