The/a higher power has spoke yet again……Cleveland is truly hated.
“The Drive”. Elway slices up the Browns in the final 5 minutes if the game for 98 yds and a go-ahead TD to win the 86-87 AFC Championship game.
“The Fumble”. in the following season, 87-88 AFC Championship game, Earnest Byner, with just a minute left in the game coughed up the rock trying to punch in what was to be a game tying touchdown…..the Broncos recovered and went on to beat the Browns IN CLEVELAND for a second straight year and AFC title game. Bullocks!
“The Shot” Jordan in the 89 Eastern Conference finals game 5…..3.2 ticks left. Making it 3 straight years of a professional Cleveland sports team getting kick in the family jewels within minutes/seconds of potentially playing for a title. OUCH.
“Game 7”, the 1997 World Series, the favored Tribe (Indians) actually lead 2-1 heading into the bottom of the 9th inning….three friggin outs away from winning a title,….nope. The Marlins come back to tie it, then take it in the 11th inning. The Marlins were only a 5 year old franchise. OUCH!!!
“LeBronnedict James Arnold”, 2010. Turncoat. ‘Nuff said.
The Sports God(s) plain and simply do NOT like Cleveland. Period.

So it begins.
The day that ESPN has been hyping since about 6 minutes after Lebron inked his first deal is finally here! Everyone and their mother became a free agent at midnight last night including: LeBron, DWade, Chris Bosh, Nowitzki, Joe Johnson, Amare, Dwight, Shaq, Ghandi, Magic, Jordan, Bird, Benny the Jet Rodriguez, Elway, Koufax, Vince Chase, Butkus, Obama, Federer, Jim Joyce, Landis, Hammurabi, Bonaparte, Buonarroti, Spock, and finally, who may be called the Crowned Jewel of the class, Elizabeth II.
Chaos is currently reigning supreme in the NBA, and I for one hope that BronBron and Co collude to their hearts content, form their own team in Akron, name themselves the MonStars, and vie for interstellar basketball domination.
Questions, Comments, Concerns, and Clown Jokes:
Federer has been eliminated by nobodys in two consecutive majors. WHAT? I like him so much better when he was the Terminator.
First Annual BP vs LeBron race. I think you can figure out the rules. If Brett Favre decides his future first then no one wins and the end of days is nigh. And yes, if you were wondering- BP is indeed still trying to kill the earth and LeBron is still on the loose.
And for our younger fans practicing for the SAT:
BP is to LeBron as is to
And, as always: Peace. Love. Fatheads.

I’ve been in the market for a new house for a couple of months now. I must admit that my girlfriend and I are suckers for House Hunters and My First Place and other House shows on HGTV. For the guys out there that don’t always like frilly throw pillows with matching crown molding trim, it would be cool to see some Fathead rooms for the sports fans out there. Or better yet, design a room around the colors of your favorite sports team. Don’t know if that would make for a good show or not. Maybe an idea like that would be received better on Garage Mahal or Man Caves. I still think it would be cool to have something like that as an option on the shows. I guess not all women would think a huge Pavel Datsyuk Fathead would look good on a wall with Red Wings colors and imagery everywhere. It would be cool to have a section on the home décor link that has paint colors and other ideas for making any room into my favorite sports room. My girlfriend can have her frilly throw pillows just as long as I can have my favorite team and colors on my walls.
