For Cleveland sports fans, this is not an uncommon idea, but a carefully concealed one. A belief that is often overshadowed by bitterness, anger, frustration, disappointment, and the deadliest of all... pessimism. Talk to the average longtime fan and you will find yourself with a suffocating amount of second-hand pessimistic thoughts. Fans who yearn for the good old days of Kosar, Thome, LeBron, etc. will often express how those days are gone forever. The gloom and doom of these Cleveland sports fans dominates the fanbases, and they'll tell you all about it if you care to listen.
I say it’s time we put those feelings to bed—permanently. Criticism will be given where it is due, but there is always something good to take from even the bloodiest loss, and always a ray of sunshine to guide us forward in even the darkest hour. It’s time we take Cleveland sports from the rusty ruins of yesteryear and propel the mindset of the people into a future of positive recognition where they can be proud of something.
This blog will march forward with one vision, one purpose: the path to success starts with the fans focusing on the lighter side of Cleveland sports where optimism reigns supreme. Gather around and let me tell you all about why we have it made here in Cleveland, and how spectacular the days are that await us.
