Go Tribe! Good thing they're not betting on football.

Fun stuff. What I would really like to see is a competition between the 2 on hourly capacity (on similar rides/coasters.) Can you say landslide?

For the last time, Six Flags and Cedar Fair are not in competition with each other!

I understand the 2 aren't in competition with each other (for the last time), but it's still fun for some of us to compare the 2. It won't be the last time.

Well, since Cedar Point has been marketing and advertising in the Chicago market for the past few summers I would disagree that they aren't in competition with each other. There are times during the summer when I hear more radio ads for Cedar Point in the Chicago area then I do for Six Flags.

Cedar Point has been trying and succeeding in drawing a lot of visitors to the resort from the Chicago market. Almost everyone I know who isn't a coaster enthusiast has been there or talks about going there in the future. That visit to Cedar Point usually takes the place of a visit to Six Flags for the year. I don't understand how you believe they aren't competing for the same customers.

Sarchasm - the gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn't get it.

I was beating the long dead horse about whether they were or weren't where in this case it is clear and obvious that they are.

Tough break for Tribe, but a good game 7. Congrats to the Cubs.

Brian Shaw is the worst reliever I have seen since Jose Mesa
