Why I Hate Monopoly

From DCist:

"...a faithful DCist tipster tells us that the good people at Hasbro are developing a new and improved Monopoly release to be called, a little ominously, The Here and Now Edition (eat, drink, and roll dice, Hasbrothers, for tomorrow we'll be buying hotels in the hereafter). To build interest in the game, Monopoly is asking folks to vote online for their favorite city landmarks in 22 cities. The highest vote getters in each city will be represented, and the highest vote getter overall will receive the coveted "Boardwalk" slot, and, we imagine, urban bragging rights for the foreseeable future."

My interest being piqued, I clicked through to the site to vote for my favorite landmarks in several U.S. cities. I was presented with a map with 22 U.S. cities.

But wait...

What's this?

No PITTSBURGH?

Fucking Cleveland gets some represenation, but not Pittsburgh?

WTF!?!

You know what? Fuck Monopoly, I never liked it in the first place.

(For the record, I didn't click on Cleveland to see their "landmarks." Although I imagine they consist of the Cuyahoga River Fire, the Cleveland Steamer, and Kellen Winslow's right ACL.)
