Fifth Third Bank (If my eyes are not playing tricks on me) is a southwestern Ohio bank-but this doesn't look like Cincinatti-and its too much like a "real" city to be the northern Kentucky edge cities.

So-I will guess Dayton, Ohio-which does have a big river running through it.

I used to live there, pre-riverboat. I recognized the ahem--stunted skyline, but i't's grown a lot since I left. It's a nice little city, with a great historic district--although one of my friends told me some of that had to make way for the riverboat parking garage. Sigh.

so does that mean I got it right??

Babs takes it!

Plannerbabs is the winner! JNA from Indiana knew it all along, and deserves kudos for restraint by allowing others to guess.

Plannerbabs, here is your prize:

The little purple leprechaun mascot of the University of Evansville fightin' Purple Aces! (now there's a scary mascot!)

(basketball player from other school): "Who we playing this week?"
(teammate): "The Evansville Purple Aces."
(1st player): "The Purple Aces! Gaah! Run! Run away!"

I don't know, the leprechaun from the Simpsons was kind of scary....What exactly is an Ace, anyway? (wasn't part of my education when I was there).

He is not a leprechaun, like that school at the other end of Indiana.

He is a old-time looking riverboat gambler.

? Did you attend U of E or grow up here - which HS ?

I went to good ole' USI for two years, then fled back north. Still miss Ski soda, though. And Grippo's chips. Still have a few friends down there, too, who grew up there.
