Thoughts on Lebron From a Non-Sports Loving Clevelander....

The majority of people in Cleveland love sports.  Not liking sports puts me in the minority.  
The Lebron talk is impossible to ignore.  And I couldn't care less.

That being said, I'm having fun watching fellow Clevelanders lose their minds.  Everyone pretty much stopped working today when the announcement happened.  The local media have interrupted daily programming to broadcast the news.

When the news was announced, people screamed and shouted, they waved their hands outside of their cars.  People cried tears of joy.

So while I could care less about sports, I love my fellow Cleveland sports lovers, so I'm enjoying this!

Go sports!!!!

Update:  my lovely aunt-in-law saw my post on Facebook and asked what I was talking about.  She lives in Colorado and doesn't watch tv.  (That means she's an awesome hippie type lady!)

Here's how I broke it down.

"Nanci, It's even been on the national news, CNN, etc... here's a non-sports loving girl short explanation: 

lebron james is a super good basketball player from akron (i think). people worshipped him in cleveland. they painted pics of him on buildings. it was a thing. then he left for some other team and people in cleveland got pissed. (it's like when the browns went to go be ravens for a few years.) so for a few years people said bad stuff about him. his new team won rings, and that pissed off cleveland more. then something happened with money and maybe a wizard, but suddenly people were saying he might come back. people stopped hating him and got to be forgiving. not all, but some. then the last 2 days everyone's been waiting to find out. i think everyone hoped, but knew it could go bad. (cleveland sports people have had their hearts broken in the past.) but he wrote a nice essay about coming back and now everyone is hugging and crying and high 5ing."

This made me laugh out loud.

Good job, Non-sports Girl. For good stuff to happen in Cleveland sports there MUST be sorcery involved. I think you understand better than you let on!
