Jim Juliano: The Tribe will be playing its 18th season at Progressive Field. It remains a premier ballpark for baseball. First of all, it may be time for some new paint and redecorating. That being said, it appears to me to be an anomaly, and winning against a hot Seattle team even at The Ugly Pirate Ship would be an even bigger surprise. Against the spread: Bucs plus 5.5.The bigger question won’t be who’ll win this game, but whether you readers will still be awake with that overload of Tryptophan in your system. Considering the fact the Colts haven’t been able to stop the run or the pass very often this season does tell me that by the time you’re heading to the fridge for the fourth time, the Steelers will have put this one to bed and you, too.
Successful franchises would have paused and wondered why a great player suddenly became available, but not the Bills. They jumped on a blockbuster trade without doing their homework.

Officials say four of ten storm warning sirens there did not sound. The April 3rd super outbreak of killer tornados in 1974 left 300 dead in the Midwest and South, 48 in Indiana and 78 in Kentucky.In Louisville, it ripped through mobile home parks and blasted areas like the Kentucky State Fairgrounds, Bardstown Road near Eastern Parkway and Cherokee Park. Back then, Doug Hamilton, the current Metro Emergency Management Director, was a City of Louisville police officer who lived on Eastern Parkway.”The sirens didn wake me up,” Hamilton remembered.Even though there was a warning system back then, Hamilton says it was nothing like the advanced technology of the National Weather Service and the 120 sirens Louisville Metro has today.”We cover 67 percent of our acreage and 90 percent of our population with our sirens,” said Hamilton.62 of the 120 are new sirens that are electronically monitored and have a battery backup.”If they don rotate, if they don function as loud as we would like for them to, if they don fire, they tell on themselves,” Hamilton said.Last weekend, four of ten battery backed sirens in Corydon, Kentucky did not go off.
