Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Heaven, God was missing for six
days.

On the seventh day, Michael the archangel found him, resting.
He inquired of God, "Where have you been?"

God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction and proudly pointed downwards
through the clouds, "Look Michael, see what I've made..."

Archangel Michael looked puzzled and said, "What is it?"

"It's a planet," replied God, "and I've put LIFE on it. I'm going to
call it Earth and it's going to be a great place of balance."

"Balance?" inquired Michael, still confused. God explained, pointing
to different parts of Earth, "For example, Northern Europe will be a
place of great opportunity and wealth while Southern Europe is going to be poor.

God continued, pointing to different countries. "This one will be
extremely hot and arid while this one will be very cold and covered
in ice."

The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a place.
"What's that?"

"Ah," said God. "That's Pittsburgh, the most glorious place on Earth.
There are beautiful lakes, rivers, streams and an exquisite Golden
Triangle where three great rivers meet. The people of Pittsburgh
are intelligent and humorous and they're going to be found traveling
the world. They'll be extremely sociable, hard-working and high-achieving, and they will be known throughout the world as diplomats and carriers of peace. I'm also going to give them an undefeatable football team who will be admired and feared by all who come across them."

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration but then proclaimed, "What
about balance, God? You said there would be BALANCE!"
God replied, "Wait until you see the loud-mouth jagoffs I'm putting
next to them and I'm calling it Cleveland."

Lol. I love it. I had a meetin wit my Spanish tutor today and she told me that after she graduates this year her job is gonna be in Cleveland. What do you think is the first thing out of my mouth? "Don't become a browns fan!" She said that she was more of a Cavs person which I guess is acceptable since James is an amazin freak of nature. Pittsburgh is a great and beautiful place and I always love goin there. Peace.
