Thanks, I clearly understand the difference between what we need and what we have. Perceptions, both internally and externally, won't change until the fine citizens of Hamilton start to realize that we DO have a lot to offer and become of a part of the solution that embraces our identity crisis and collective lack of 'self esteem'. If you tell someone they live in a sh@thole long enough, they start to believe it. My observations are based on my personal experiences. Like highwater, I find it tiresome to assume that one individual may not be interested both an art crawl and a football game. Don't assume that a 'WH supporter' isnt also a football fan. For ALL of the years that I had season tickets and I could not find anyone to attend with me. Any football fans I knew already had tickets and no one else was interested in expanding there cultural experience to the gridiron. North American football is not that interesting to some folks, especially if they originate from another country (again, just from my own experiences).
