You know right now I actually feel like an even bigger Cavaliers fan that I was before. Daniel Gilbert and the Cavs organization did everything at all possible to build a team around LeBron James, but were hampered from the get go for multiple reasons. Amongst them was the fact that James in his seven years here, and signing that 3 year deal a few years back refused to firmly commit, making it hard for the Cavs to build around him.
They could not build to win for the future, they had to build to win immediately. While teams such as the Knicks tanked it on purpose and shed space to try and clear up the room to sign Lebron, the Cavs tried to build a team to win right away.
Its hard to do that when these spoiled rich assholes of players today are more concerned about playing in cities with the nightlife and stuff of the Miami’s and New York’s etcetera. Even with Lebron James here, guys did not want to come here because its Cleveland.
Lebron can go down to Miami, and even if they win multiple titles, he will be nothing but Wade’s sidekick. That’s Wade’s team, he already has a title there.
He doesn’t have to have the killer instinct of the far superior Kobe Bryant, he gets to be the best regular season player in the league and let D Wade carry the load come clutch time. LeBron lost his chance to be Michael Jordon, he’ll be nothing more then Scottie Pippen now.
Good bye and good riddance Prince James.
Today is the 40th anniversary of the event that would eventually lead to the name of this blog, as well as become the first in a series of events that would lead my home town of Cleveland, OH to become a national joke. It was not actually the first time that the Cuyahoga river was aflame, but it would be the most memorable. The events of June 22, 1969 led Time magazine to describe it in these words,
“No Visible Life. Some river! Chocolate-brown, oily, bubbling with subsurface gases, it oozes rather than flows.”
The river is actually much cleaner now, as is the whole waterfront of Northeast Ohio, proper use and development of that water front top actually make our city a place people want to come to, well that’s another story.
This is a picture I took from the rooftop of the Velvet Dog, with my Iphone this past St. Patricks day.
I know I’m posting it a few months late, but I thought it was a pretty good pic.

Never have I thought in my lifetime that I would attend a “protest rally,” It is just quite simply the type of act that I would never imagine myself doing. That is the sort of thing that patchouli oil smelling hippies in Birkenstocks do — I have much more productive things to do with my free time.
Or so I thought.
Yes while I have been an on and off, sporadic at best blogger for the past few years, I have not really done anything meaningful to try and better my country, other then showing up on election day and casting my ballot.
Today I made the decision to call off of work and head down to the local tax day tea party rally in Cleveland.
I am so very glad that I did.
It was a wonderful day, I had a great big smile on my face and I am normally not one to really smile often, but it was great to be with like minded, right minded individuals.
There are still people out there who believe in this great country of ours and believe in the founding principles set forth in our founding documents.
Today was just the beginning, together we can restore the Republic.
I brought a video camera with me, but unfortunately it was an RCA small wonder that I forgot to replace the batteries, so I have nothing more then a few 15 second video snippets that are not worth posting, which is a shame because Carlton C.J. Williams closed the rally with a great version of God Bless America.
Here is one great picture I took though with my iPhone, of one of my favorite signs at the rally, a great quote from Gerald Ford.
