Spiders was right there for the taking. They blew it! Guardians sounds like the name of a team that the Sharks would have played in Any Given Sunday People keep saying this, but the Indians were never the Spiders.

Re: Apartment/Condo building near Miami has collapsed in the middle of the night

Cool, I sense another code update coming! Hope no one was hurt seriously doubt that was built to code . . . it looks older, 1950-70's so who knows what it was built to. and like every larger project of that time period, probably faced in-field VE and contractor neglect. In the videos above, it appe...
