Caught rhymes with thought. Cot rhymes with bot.

The "citirama" block is about 480 feet from north to south. So if a replacement HS football stadium is built east-west along the south edge of the property, about 80 feet would remain along Ezzard Charles, which is enough space for about 20 homes.  Unfortunately, they'll likely instead use that strip for parking.  They might eliminate the center landscaping islands in Cutter St. to get a bit more width to comfortably fence in a running track .

Someone on Twitter pointed out that I did not include the small building that houses the locker rooms and weight room in the mockup that I posted earlier. However there is enough room to add those on the southeast corner of that block.

^^ I'm trying to understand this one.  So do you guys say you "cot the ball", or that you "lay down on a caught"?

I'm trying to understand how you would say them differently?  Would the Nasal-A-ccent make it "Cyyaaht" and "Caht?"  Like edale, I'm struggling on that one, man.

Why? I imagine FCC will spur a new parking garage to be created near central park way. I don't think that extra land would necessarily need to be surfance lot parking.

I thought there was a plan to build a giant Outlet Mall on the Lake between Burke and E. 9th. Is it dead?

http://www.cleveland.com/architecture/index.ssf/2016/07/lakefront_outlet_mall_proposed.html

This is the plan I was referring to.  Put Horizon Group Properties in a room with Dan Gilbert and let them figure this thing out for Tower City, not on the Lakefront....

Judging by the current state of downtown retail, we don't need to build more of it.  But if Horizon wants to purchase and re-lease the Galleria, they should definitely have at.

We just say Cot instead of Caught. And being that this is American League Baseball Territory we tend to mix this sh*t up. We just cant help it it's just second nature. I sometimes catch myself before I say it, and I always want to say it right, but mind comes over matter in the circumstance and i just say Cot anyways.... I honestly cant explain it.

How would cot and caught be pronounced, if not the same? I’m genuinely stumped trying to think of another pronunciation, other than how Mike Meyers might say it on “Coffee Talk” lol.
