I come not to praise the Seawolves...

Regionally, it's a good news bad new day.
While the NYT sings the praises of Pittsburgh's new public sculpture and job recovery, the Erie Times News says the Seawolves may be leaving.
Locally, The 27th annual Oil Heritage Festival officially begins Thursday.
The greenway is in town, but unlike last year when it felt like Franklin was being overrun and car vs bike feuds seemed to flare up every fifteen minutes, the number of cyclists seems wildly diminished.
It could have something to do with the more than 1,000 carpet tacks placed on the East Branch Trail from Spartansburg to Centerville, or maybe the 17 family protest that blocked the Sojourn in the same area. There's got to be a bigger story here, but in the meantime, the award for the most inappropriate headline goes to the News Herald article detailing the protests and civil disobedience: "Bicyclists get warm greeting on journey through Venango County" Really?

The key word is "may" - its not a done deal yet, and there is still time to save things. But we are in the 6th inning, and the home team is behind...

Sorry to say I can't trust that the City of Erie will pull this out when they seemingly have tried to have baseball leave for so long.
