The Cleveland Cavaliers, instant nostalgia, and studying sports fans

Cleveland Cavaliers LeBron James

One of the things that I’m most interested in as a sports fan is the study of sports fandom. In practice, that means never-ending analysis of us as a group, other cities and their sports fans, and also the most insular type of audit, of the guy I see in the mirror. (When I see

LeBron James sells Cleveland hard in new Trainwreck trailer

LeBron james and Bill Hader

Let’s just say it’s a good thing LeBron James filmed his parts in Amy Schumer’s new movie, Trainwreck, after he went back to Cleveland. The upcoming movie released a new trailer featuring LeBron James and Bill Hader conversing in a cafe, and LeBron goes on (and on) about Cleveland. It’s obviously well-written and pretty well-acted

Blatt and Griffin

The Cavaliers fell short of the NBA Championship and that’s sad, but overall it was a good season. You’d think that once the shock of it all being over wears off, there would be mostly good things to say. In their post-season media availability, David Griffin bemoaned the lack of a positive narrative as he

Johnny Manziel is no stranger to saying the right things. It’s always the “doing” part that’s tripped up the second-year quarterback from Texas A&M. The only time I can think of where Johnny backed up his words with action was when he spent the off-season in rehab after calling himself out in front of the

There’s no good way to end a season with a loss, however there are much worse ways to end a season than how the Cavaliers did on Tuesday night in Cleveland.

In his second year with the Browns, Mike Pettine took his team on another team-building exercise. Last year, he took them to the movies. That probably made sense in the same year that Kevin Costner portrayed a Cleveland Browns executive as Sonny Weaver in the movie Draft Day. The team-building exercise came back this year,
