You can't light the Cuyahoga River on fire, someone tried

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Cleveland is still getting knocked for the Cuyahoga River fire of 1969, with numerous references to the old narrative of the Mistake on the Lake being made throughout the NBA Championships, the Republican National Convention and now the World Series. The city has come a long way since then, though, and Share the River is out to prove it.

The organization posted a video to YouTube where they tried to light the river on fire, proving, once and for all, that the Cuyahoga River is not flammable. 

Time to get some new references, everyone. #ClevelandAgainstTheWorld!
