The 2016 Democratic National Convention, that is. Look, we would have been okay if Brooklyn beat us. It’s not like we never lost anything to NYC before. New York is the big brother who never lets you forget who Mom loved first. But to go down to Columbus, Ohio — a “city” whose nicknames include “Cowtown” and “The Buggy Capital of the World” and that boasted of being “the second manliest city in the U.S.” when the first manliest was Charlotte, North Carolina — well, that would have been embarrassing. So. Justice has been done. Start blowing up those balloons!
