I've got a thing for homecomings, and a soft spot for long-suffering sports cities. Best of luck to LeBron and the Cavaliers." -July 2014

I realize now that that post was the only other time I've used the Cleveland Cavaliers tag, though a few more feature their name-likeness in Rosemont. But last night, the Cleveland Cavaliers were crowned champions of the NBA with a game 7 victory over Golden State, exorcizing a 52year old championship drought demon from the city of Cleveland. Akron's own Lebron James was a necessary piece of the puzzle, restoring glory to God hjome region, precisely as he set out to do when he returned to northeast Ohio just two years ago.

I don't have anything particularly profound to add to the discussion. In fact, I can probably count on one hand the number of NBA games I caught this year. But as I've said before, homecomings and long-suffering sports cities are a soft spot of mine, and Cleveland is no longer the latter.

Your move, Bluecoats.
