Now that the Cavs are in the NBA finals, will a championship come to town? It’s been a long drought since the Browns won it all in 1964. A first-class postage stamp cost five cents then, but who mails letters these days anyway. And the local pay phone call went for ten cents. But Superman can’t even find a phone booth anymore. And the Beatles first appeared on the Ed Sullivan show in 1964. Ancient history.
That’s how long it has been. But maybe, just maybe, Euclid Avenue will be filled with Clevelanders watching LeBron James and his teammates parade downtown as NBA champions. If you don’t know how heartbreaking Cleveland sports fans have had it, you have to read this and weep.
