If you are looking at this website you are probably a fan of Cleveland sports, just like me. My condolences.
You know the history. You've been to the games. You've watched them on TV. You know that when it seems like the game can not be lost, it will be. That when the most is at stake, they will play their worst. And when it seems like it can't get any worse, it definitely will. I am speaking specifically about the Browns, the Indians, and the Cavaliers.
When I was growing up in Cleveland, the Browns had opportunities to make the Super Bowl behind Bernie Kosar. We all know how that ended. The Cavs also seemed poised to make some deep post-season runs. Nope. And the Indians came one inning away from a World Series Title. Then it just kept getting worse...
This book is not about reopening old Cleveland wounds. I'll leave that to the national sports media. This is about having a laugh at the sheer lunacy of what we have "witnessed" over the years. We know we have to laugh sometimes to avoid losing our minds.
It's also about sharing the history with our children so they can appreciate why we cheer the way do, and more often, hang our heads in disbelief. At the very least, it is a great way for them to learn about Murphy's Law.
I hope this book can warm a frozen Cleveland sports fan's heart!
