As a Cleveland Cavaliers fan all my life, a fan who grew up watching the team in the dark days, and fearing a relocation of the Cavaliers in the late 90s, early '00s cause of bad attendance and empty seats- a fan who suffered the loss of he Browns in 1995, and other events of Cleveland sports pasts... I personally am disgusted by the spectacle that LeBron James made last night
No, I didn't watch it, after I saw that the Cavs were going to lose LeBron early Thursday AM while I was at my bar. At least I was able to do a shot of Jack to ease the pain.
I felt the whole spectacle was over-blown, unnecessary and ridiculous. It was a slap to the face of the city of Cleveland, OH which had a LeBron Witness sign on a building downtown Cleveland. I am not surprised by how the fans are reacting. We have not had a championship since the '64 Browns. We have been cursed, ad a friend says I should not believe in sports curses since the '04 Red Sox won the World Series, but I do.
I do because it always happens to Cleveland. I feel like God loves to play Soup Nazi with us. I always picture God as the Soup Nazi from 'Seinfeld', picking who wins the championship and says to Cleveland ala the Soup Nazi, 'NO CHAMPIONSHIP FOR YOU!'
I felt the whole damn thing was a spectacle, and I also was not thrilled to see tonight the big bash that the Heat are throwing for him at the Miami Arena. It was disgusting!!!!
It made me want to throw up, and it showed to me who REALLY was behind it all. ESPN. ESPN had to have had something to do do with it as they probably wanted him in a larger market than the city of Cleveland. Cleveland is a small-market team that is damned lucky to still have it's pro sports teams after losing the Browns, getting them back, and almost losing the Indians had the Gateway ballot not passed in 1990.
I will move on, I will still be a Cavaliers fan, and I need to go jersey and t-shirt shoppng.
