8 Things That Make You Say, ‘Rockford You’re All Right’

Keep the glass half full this summer, Rockford.

BMO Harris Bank Center in downtown Rockford is home of the Rockford IceHogs.

No more On The Waterfront, the Clock Tower is faceless, and we have dumb criminals stealing donation jars from gas stations. This doesn’t really sound like much to smile about this summer in Rockford.

Rockford has issues just like every other city this size. Do the research people. We are here, we are around it, and sometimes it feels like it’s all we hear and see.

So what are you going to do, dwell the fact you got another flat tire or do you get it fixed up and continue to drive?

To me, Rockford is all right and is going to be all right. Here are 8 Reasons Why Rockford is all right.
