    So you think that the mistake by the lake can produce a champion? Hmmm. I suppose this is the closest they will ever come to a championship, even if they don't win one.

    It's happening, baby. First with the Cavs, then with the Browns. Can't say anything about the Tribe. Yet.

    Only $5,000? What is wrong with you? You act like they even have a chance man. Why not bet everything you own?

    Speaking of the Browns, earlier this year I went to a grocery and parked and locked my car. Much to my chagrin I saw that my windshield had been busted when I came back. Someone had busted my windshield and placed to Browns tickets on my dash!!

    This is the art of making a wager that might get accepted.

    I don't make bets that I won't win.

    I realize we've been down a long, long time. The last time a championship happened here, I was being born. Many things point to the continuation of such dismal results.

    However, a few things indicate that tides may be turning. To wit:
    New coach with a winning attitude.
    New president and new GM, both with winning attitude and records.
    Retainment of quality players.
    Excellent positions in the draft.
    Loss of under-performers.

    Nah! The real Browns are in Baltimore! Current Browns are dismal. Cavs might pull it off this season. Only because Lakers are hurt and Mavs don't have the D to deal with leBron!

    Might be a bit of a reach, but, oh, what the heck: let's go with that one, too.

    See Houston Texans....

    They have possessed all of the above, yet they have not won....and the Texans are a much better team than Cleveland!!

    Many similarities, except for draft. Cleveland has the #7 and #38 spots, whereas Houston is 13 behind for their first pick at #20, and 12 behind at #50. Will it make a big difference, given how so much of the draft is a crapshoot? I guess we'll see!

    It's been six years since I was in Houston last, so I can't speak to the frustration level of the city. I can say that no one wants it more than Cleveland. They possibly could want it as much, but certainly not more...
