Forget Basketball, Playing Parking Madness

Not into basketball? Perhaps you'd like to wager on StreetsBlogUSA's annual "Parking Madness"
bracket instead. Each year, blog readers nominate cities with "parking craters" that take up more of the downtown area for parking than they probably should; areas where other businesses could be and that would make downtown more vibrant. Last year, someone even nominated Spokane as a contender, although I'm not sure how we did in the end.

You can check it out here, as well as pictures of each of the contenders' parking areas.
