I wasn’t going to comment on the entire Lebron debacle. Personally, I thought he was about more than greed, but apparently not.
However, I think we ought to consider all those big black signs that hung around town to convince Lebron he was more than just a player to us, and rephrase the emphasis in the words. HOME…it’s MORE than a
PLAYER. Really, Cleveland, our HOME is more than him. We can survive just fine without him as we did in the years before him. We can do amazing things whether he is here or not, and we can be our own heros.
Take the time today, this month to give some love to someone or something you love about Cleveland. Spend time being with the city, being a part of the city and making it YOURS.
Who wants a “KING” in a democracy anyhow?
If you need to be reminded how special this place is read this tribute to the late, great Harvey Pekar by Anthony Bourdain. Harvey was a hero, a timeless example to holdup and remember because he was REAL, he was human, he was honest.
That’s what our home is like. It’s real, it’s raw but most of all it has this amazing human side that remains honest, hard-working and true despite whatever turmoil or change may surround it.
