An ad for my book: Hard to Believeland

For Cleveland Sports fans, 2016 was a year like no other.

  • The Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA championship.
  • The Cleveland Indians won the AL championship. 
  • The Cleveland Browns won a game.
Painful expressions like "Red Right 88", "The Drive", "The Shot", "The Fumble”. were suddenly replaced by “The Chasedown”, “The Shot (Kyrie version)” and “Wow! The Browns won a game!”

This book takes a humorous look at each of the teams I love. It looks at the highlights: (Cavs 2016 championship, Indians march to the World Series, the Midges), the lowlights (The Drive, The 1997 World Series, every Browns season since 1999).

It celebrates the teams we love through thick and thin.

If you have fond memories of World B. Free, Jim Thome and Greg Pruitt, this book is for you.

If you have nightmares about Michael Jordan and John Elway, this book is for you.

If you can't say "Pittsburgh Steelers" without throwing up a little in your mouth, this book is for you.

If you've never called the Baltimore Ravens anything nicer than Ratbirds, this book is for you.

If you think Art Modell should make the hall of fame on the next February 30, this book is for you.

If you suddenly started hating the Chicago Cubs last November, this book is for you.

If you just want to know more about what it feels like to grow up rooting for Cleveland sports and having years of belief finally rewarded, this book is definitely for you.
