Party in the City Where the Heat Is On

Now that's what I call a Cleveland steamer

In a not so surprising turn of events, LeBron James joined Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to form a pseudo dream team in South Beach.  I guess you can’t blame the guy for giving himself the best chance to get some rings.  I mean, I have trouble sleeping at night knowing that Adam Morrison has two already and I’m not even the best player in the NBA.

As a sports fan, I can’t help but feel sorry for the city of Cleveland, who just can’t seem to catch a break.  It’s been over 46 years since the city has had a major sports title, when the Cleveland Browns won the NFL Championship (pre-Super Bowl), which is the longest such streak among cities with three major sports franchises.  At least they have rising baseball star Shin-Soo Choo. . . oh wait, he just broke his thumb and owes two years of service to the South Korean Military before the age of 30.  See what I mean?

In 1994, ESPN dubbed Cleveland America’s most tortured sports cities.  Check out their top ten most heartbreaking moments and it’s easy to see why.  Now, that list was created a few years ago, so I think it’s safe to say that King James’ departure belongs on it somewhere, probably one spot ahead of the time Delonte West slept with LeBron’s mom.
