What’s the National City connection to Minneapolis?

mplsgps
I’m sitting in the drive through lane at National City Bank in Englewood, Ohio, trying to find something to read as I was waiting for the teller to process my deposits. My eye wanders over to the sign they have next to the tube-machine and the map on the sign looks very familiar.

I kept looking harder at it and it suddenly came into focus. It was downtown Minneapolis, with Washington Ave, 35, 294, 94 and Hennepin Ave. clearly labeled. Then I got to thinking, “What is the connection between Minneapolis and National City? Why not downtown Cleveland?”

I went to the web site when I got home to search for bank branches in Minneapolis. I got:

No location found within 25 miles of ‘ minneapolis MN’

So, now I am very curious. If anyone knows the connection, please holler!

I'm a dog who writes a blog. It is not a pet blog. It is a real blog that talks about real ideas. No, really. I do my own writing, but I have a really, really cool editor who overlooks the fact that I can't really hit the space-bar key cause I don't have thumbs. I talk about everything from politics to social issues to just rambling about local problems. And, sometimes I just talk about nothing in particular. Google+

    It’s just cheap clipart…..don’t over-analyze! 🙂

    @debbie Hmmmm…I thought so for the longest time as well and that would be the easy answer. But ignoring subtle details that are slightly out of phase and not asking why is the first step to apathy. Even if the answer is banal, there is still an answer to the link.

    To carry the over analysis even further, I also spent time searching through the common clip art libraries and found a lot of GPS stuff, but none of the map with Minneapolis streets labeled. My bank is up to something and I want to know what it is. 🙂
