Reason #409 - Final Four

Detroit's Ford Field is hosting the NCAA Men's Final Four - expect record crowds and record revenues. In Detroit. In early April. Because they have a roof on their stadium. Did I mention that even Detroit is able to host a Final Four? Cleveland, no roof, no chance.

Reason #408 - Rock Hall Induction Ceremonies

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies are in Cleveland this week because this is where they belong because this is where the Rock Hall is.
