This is a REALLY good bottle of wine (and that’s to say I enjoy it. I’m not a wine connoisseur so it’s entirely possible that it’s not actually a good bottle of wine). The fact that it’s called “Believeland” is just a happy coincidence and makes it even better for this CLE fan. #wine #cleveland #believeland
Still having a hard time getting over last night’s sweep. Not sure why but this season’s postseason slump hurts worse than previous years. Maybe it’s cause no one that has a job got to watch any of the games? Talk about a terrible schedule. Oh well… I’m an Astros fan the rest of the way.
Still love me some Tribe… and now it’s officially Browns and Cavs season in the CLE.
Summer is coming to a close and it’s TRIBE time. The Indians clinched a playoff berth last weekend and Jason Kipnis ended last night’s game with a HUGE exclamation point… a GRAND SLAM walk off which also happened to be his 1,000th career hit.
I love the Jake… but this is what I think about when I think “ballpark”. Cleveland Stadium, commonly known as Municipal Stadium or Lakefront Stadium, was a multi-purpose stadium built to accommodate both baseball and football. The stadium opened in 1931 and was a four-time host of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game, one of the host venues of the 1948 and 1954 World Series, and the site of the original Dawg Pound, Red Right 88, and The Drive.

I’m not going to go into it now because if I’m being honest I’m still processing everything that has happened. I’ve gone through a variety of emotions and I’m not quite sure I’ve landed on one yet and the reality it is will most likely be a combination of multiple emotions when all is said and done. That said the title of this post was chosen very much by design. Believe it Cleveland. LeBron is gone. But also believe that he was here and when he was here he got us our championship. Nothing can ever tarnish that.
Frank Cramer from ProudDad72 Photography shared this photo back in July of 2016 after the Republican National Convention wrapped up. He had this to say: “This picture was taken around midnight last night. Thursday late night/Friday early morning. I’m so glad Cleveland stayed Awesome for the RNC convention. To all those who thought our city would be crazy and/or destroyed. Cleveland is still shining nice tonight. I was down there every night, what a really cool and different experience #RNC #CLEVELANDRNC #CLEVE”
NOTE: I’m not trying to reignite the Chief Wahoo debate with this post. I ran across this photo when reading a story from back in May about how a protester got busted stealing federal grant money. The photo itself is awesome regardless of your feelings of Wahoo.
Two years ago today, this happened. For years Clevelanders had been dealing with things like The Drive. The Fumble. The Shot. The Decision. Then on that fateful Father’s Day evening, LeBron James and crew did the impossible. They brought a championship back to Cleveland. It still doesn’t seem real and even though we’ve not fared nearly as well against the Warriors the last two years, nothing will ever tarnish that night.
I got to share it with my wife, kids, neighbors and all of Cleveland. It was a special night that will never be undone.
Today’s photo is by the outstanding T.J. Powell. He captured this amazing sunset shot over Corbett’s Farm in Twinsburg (on the east side of Cleveland). You can find T.J. on the web at www.tjpowellphotography.com on Instagram or on Facebook.
Today’s post takes us back to the Horseshoe Casino (currently known as Jack Casino Cleveland). It is located in the former Higbee Building at Tower City Center in downtown Cleveland and has 100,000 sq ft of gaming space. It is open 24 hours a day and is completely smoke-free and has partnered with nearly a dozen downtown Cleveland restaurants.
In an effort to not be so sports centric here on the site I wanted to break out something a little different. Ran across this incredible shot on my hard drive this evening and just had to share.
