A Cleveland Browns Version of Green Day's "21 Guns" Sung by a Middle-Aged White Guy... Sure, Why Not

Posted By on Mon, Oct 26, 2009 at 8:38 AM

5:23 of your life you'll never get back. Consider yourself lucky. This guy will never get back the hours he spent writing the lyrics, practicing and recording this. And here I thought I had a lot of free time.

Swag Alert: Light it Up Like Vegas

Posted By on Sat, Oct 24, 2009 at 5:05 PM

“I've always felt since I was drafted here that I was going to light it up like Vegas." — LeBron James

I very well might be the last person on earth to know this, but lightituplikevegas.com is a registered domain. And not only that, the site sells "Light it Up Like Vegas" t-shirts in honor of LeBron's famous declaration about what he was going to do to Cleveland with his skills on the court. It's the same logo as the one for the "Light it Up Like Vegas" special premiering on Fox Sports Ohio Monday night. If you haven't watched the trailer for the special yet, you should. The show stars Mike Polk and the program is a little fantastical journey — a la Christmas Carol and Wizard of Oz — into Cleveland's past, and what might happen to this fair Forest City should the Cavs win the championship this year.

Swag Alert: "Bronman and Mo" & "Lake Erie Monster" Tees

Posted By on Sat, Oct 24, 2009 at 3:06 PM

From the man who brought you the Delonte tees comes these new Cavaliers designs. Glen Infante over at I Love the Hype (also of Real Cavs Fans and LeBron 2010) has two new offerings. First the "Bronman and Mo" — a play off of the constant "Where's the Robin to LeBron's Batman" talk that engulfed the Cavs before the arrival of Williams. Now, Mo's a fine player, an All-Star guard, but referring to him as Robin neglects the fact that he really didn't rise to that level or the fact that Shaq is much more in the mode of a Robin this year. Still, nice design.

Second, the Shaq "Lake Erie Monster" tee. Even though Shaq didn't decide on the moniker as his official Cavs nickname, the shirt rocks. The Monsters design has been one of our favorites for a long time, minor league or not, and Shaq's head, to be honest, is a lot more scary than the Monster from the original logo. I know Cleveland Frowns is with me on this one.

Either way, both shirts are now for sale over at I Love the Hype (along with Kid Cudi, Jay-Z, and the Delonte KFC options).

You Know You've Made It When...

Posted By on Fri, Oct 23, 2009 at 10:07 AM

Jay-Z's tour stopped in Cleveland last night and, naturally, LeBron was right there with him.

Now, forget the MVP award, the millions of dollars, the endorsements, the celebrity, the skills. Forget everything else LeBron has done in his life that might be used as a measuring stick for how big he's made it. Nothing tops standing on stage with Jay-Z, while Jay-Z is performing, and texting someone else.

Seriously, LeBron did it. To be fair, he wasn't next to Jay-Z, but he was on the stage just off to the side dancing with his crew, and spent the majority of one song typing on his Blackberry. I know LeBron operates in a different realm that even most celebrities, let alone us commoners, but seriously, unless that's President Obama on the other side of the text, who the hell merits a text while you're onstage with Jay-Z?

I want to be that important one day.

NBA Live 10 Predicts Cavs to Win Title

Posted By on Thu, Oct 22, 2009 at 1:18 PM

As we all anxiously await next Tuesday's season opener against the Celtics, we also anxiously dig into any and all relevant news, looking for something, anything to say about the Cavs. More specifically, something, anything to point us towards the conclusion that the Cavs will finally end Cleveland's sports title drought.

Some good news for us, then.

From the NBA Live 10 Press Release:


An EA SPORTS™ videogame simulation of the entire 2009—10 NBA season using NBA LIVE 10 predicts that the Cleveland Cavaliers will rebound from last year’s playoff elimination and defeat the Los Angeles Lakers in an exhilarating seven-game series during The Finals 2010. Cleveland’s LeBron James completes a legendary season by capturing both the regular season and The Finals MVP awards.

Behind James and the new addition of Shaquille O’Neal, the Cleveland Cavaliers finished with the best record in the Eastern Conference. After defeating the Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls in the NBA Playoffs, the Cavaliers tipped off against the 2009 Eastern Conference Champion, Orlando Magic, in a rematch of last year’s exciting Eastern Conference Finals.

The Los Angeles Lakers finished with the best regular season record in the NBA by tallying an impressive 63 wins. Lakers guard Kobe Bryant led his team in scoring by averaging 27.9 points per game, while teammate Pau Gasol finished as the teams best rebounder securing 10.3 rebounds per game. Los Angeles went on to defeat the Utah Jazz, Denver Nuggets and San Antonio Spurs to advance to The Finals.

I dig it.
