Memorial Bridge Statues Get Cavs Headbands

Well, holy crap. I never would have noticed this.

Via Scott at WFNY, turns out those mammoth statues on the Memorial Bridge, the same ones featured in the intro to Major League, were decorated with headbands by the Cavs as part of their "All Together" playoff campaign.

Scott also tackles the patch job Nike did on the LeBron billboard, and like just about everyone else, he's not down with it.

Though while it still predominantly features LeBron James in the midst of his chalk toss, the tagline has been changed to “One For All.”

The move is likely related to the latest bout of shirts and posters that were given to Cavalier fans on Monday night prior to the recognition of LeBron James’ second MVP award. But instead of providing the city with a new billboard, Nike opted to simply put a black patch of material over the old slogan, resembling the look of a bad photoshop job.
