With all good intentions I’m sure, the local brew pub, Great Lakes Brewing Company, has brewed what is sure to be their most popular beer yet. Ironically named Quitnessin honor of the former savior of the city, LeBron James, this beer is described as, “…sure to be as bitter as the mood of Cleveland these days.”
At 7.5% ABV (alcohol by volume), Cavs fans will be able to drown their sorrows much quicker than they would with their standard Miller Lite or Bud Light drafts. Make sure you check out all of GLBC’s delicious beers here. They have quite the extensive list.
While I can’t get on board with the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Dan Gilbert, and his sentiments regarding LeBron (like LeBron, he’s a businessman. It’s very unbecoming to cry like a petulant child over a business decision), I can completely understand the residents of the city of Cleveland and their resentment towards James. The manner in which he departed from Cleveland was disrespectful on a level that I have never seen in professional sports. LeBron behaved like one of those spoiled girls on MTV’s My Super Sweet 16 show, calling attention to himself for weeks before letting the world know that he would announce his decision to the ultra-douche Jim Gray during a one hour ESPN television special that could only be described as one of the most awkward television experiences Jim Gray had participated in since he verbally sucker punched Pete Rose on his All Century Team Induction back in 1999.
The poor sports fans of Cleveland were collateral damage in the fallout of LeBron James and his plan for global domination, which clearly couldn’t occur with him playing in a market like Cleveland.
In other news, trying to follow in LeBron’s footsteps, Zydrunas Ilgauskas left Cleveland for Miami, but no one in Cleveland seemed to notice.
