ABOUT THE AREA
Cuyahoga is a thickly populated county in Ohio State. The county seat is Cleveland. The funny thing about this place is nobody knows the correct way to say it and each one pronounces it differently. Supposed to be an Indian name and the name means a hog as in pig. But the native American language means a crooked river. Cuyahoga County is very close to Lake Erie which lies in the province of Ontario. A lot of visitors come here around fall. Lots of people in the county, with a bunch in Cleveland itself. Lots of Browns fans, and not too many Bengals fans. They do root for the Bengals when they go to court though.
