I Think I’ve Temporarily Lost My Edge As A Cleveland Sports Fan

Yesterday when the news broke that KD signed with the Warriors I didn’t even blink. No anger, no resentment, no worrying. Just nothing… and I’m afraid this Cavs championship has officially gone to my head. It’s caused me to not worry about things that don’t matter in the long run. Durant signing with the Warriors didn’t make me mad at all and I hate that it didn’t. Is this what it’s like to be a fan of a team that wins things? Do other fans in other cities wake up with a smile on their face? This happiness thing is fucking weird, I tell ya.

I’ve temporarily lost my edge as a Cleveland sports fan. Things in the sports world that should make my blood boil and  make me send out angry tweets just don’t seem to bother me anymore. Every time I see something from that dorky ass Warriorsworld Twitter account or one of the Warriors idiot beatwriters, I barely even raise an eyebrow. What the fuck, man.  It’s been nice being carefree but it’s also a huge concern with the Browns season right around the corner. I need to hate and I need to hate again soon. What happens when RG3 throws a terrible interception? Or when Cameron Erving gets pancaked by a nose tackle? Hopefully I get my juice back in time or football season might be a bit of a bore.

I’m like Peter in Office Space after he gets hypnotized by that fat guy who has a heart attack. Just carefree and somewhat oblivious to everything that’s going around me. That’s how I’ve been living my life since June 20th.

So while the Warriors are putting their free agency championship trophy in the cabinet next to their 73 regular season wins championship trophy, I’ll just be spending the rest of my summer as a fan of the world champions. When ESPN’s preseason power rankings come out and everyone is sucking Golden State’s dick, I’ll be rewatching game 7.


I just can’t be worried about this

TBT: That Time LeBron & Kevin Durant Played Flag Football At The University Of Akron

You can watch the whole game on this YouTube channel

If you remember back in 2011 during the NBA lockout, LeBron and Kevin Durant were working out together in Akron and once played a flag football game at Akron’s indoor facility.

I remember watching this live on an Internet stream and thinking this was the coolest thing ever (even though it was in 2011 and that was peak hatred for LeBron for us in Cleveland). Seeing LeBron with that pick six just reaffirmed the thought that he would be an absolute beast in football.

There’s really no rhyme or reason to this post other than I went down a rabbit hole last night of trying to find LeBron James high school football clips. After reading this column by Ben Axelrod about the college football recruitment of LeBron, my interest was piqued and I ventured to YouTube to find some clips of him on the gridiron. The clips above and this clip were really the only ones I could find:

Why are these the only clips of LeBron playing football on the Internet? That seems like something that people in the media and bloggers (me, kinda) would go crazy for. There’s basically a highlight reel for every high school football player ever. Why not have one for the best basketball player on the planet who was an All Ohio wide receiver that was getting recruited by Ohio State, Alabama, Miami, or Notre Dame? This, to me, is one of the biggest travesties of the entire Internet.

If someone finds some footage of LeBron playing football, let me know.
