Ahh Bridgeport. Land of such opportunity and history. Why doesn't it surprise me to also know that one shouldn't be caught outside after dark there.
Its history leaves scars, like Joe Ganim (and family) who seems to own or have own everything in town that couldn't be nailed down.
Its traditions of drug abuse and crime. Why those poor teenage youngsters and their silly gangs. No doubt many of them also inhabit the area graveyards.
And the Bluuuuu-fish. Despite having good teams, it constantly loses money. The ball park and nearby indoor arena have yet to become enough of a draw to people throughout the tri-state.
Ahhh Bridgeport. Not only have we all endured your travelogue, but now know far too much for our own good.
I was going to take up your gauntlet, but I'm finding it difficult to wax lyrical about Joliet, IL. What can you say about a place where the main claim to fame is the state prison? ;)
