Are you a true West Sider??

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
My haunting memory of this day that I can’t get rid of is that snowy thanksgiving day in 1956 when Elder won the GCL and West Hi won the PHSL and the game was hyped as the City Championship. My brother was Elder’s Captain. West Hi won 20-13.
I guess the reason I cannot let this go is because I am a True Westsider??

My dad graduated from West Hi the year before that game. He always remembered the good old days when both schools respected the neighborhood competition.

I remember hearing a story that Pete Rose played on the West Hi team that year. Is this correct?
The link below tell us he played both football and baseball for West High.

The bar area at Kroger is really weird. I don't want to drink beer in a grocery store. I don't want to place bets there, either.
The bar at the Dent Kroger has live music on most Saturday evenings. I agree, it’s weird. Wonder how many guys take their dates to the Kroger bar?

I've never gotten a beer at Kroger, but there are usually people drinking there when it's open and I've seen a few people walking around the store with a beer in hand while shopping.

Agreed, it is weird. I didn't know the Dent one had the bar, I've seen it at the Oakley location. The Oakley one has separate beer and wine bars inside the store. It's very strange.

I cannot imagine going to Kroger to place bets, but I guess they are appealing to the completely degenerate gambler??

Drive a half hour or more to a casino to place a bet or do it right in my neighborhood? I guess I’d be a degenerate.

Place it on your phone? I’m not a big gambler but I thought mobile betting was coming 1/1.

edit: note to self, patience, Orin. EHS already addressed this. Read thru the thread then comment.

You are right. I don’t even know why we need kiosks. I was just responding to the idea that placing a kiosk bet while in Kroger would be a degenerate move.
 
^That stinks, wonder what happened. Hopefully they consider another spot. There was a planned development next to Lowe's, but haven't heard anything on that in a while. Maybe next to the planned Bdubs by Kroger?

Heard a rumor that Sunnyside Grill in Delhi is planning to close in April. Apparently, they haven't been getting the business and the fire and police folks haven't been supporting it as they had hoped.

Also, does anyone know if Kenning's is still closing at the end of the year? I see they still have a hiring message on their sign, although that's been there since the summer.
