A look inside the mind of a Cleveland sports fan.
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.

On August 5, 2015 I took a surprise visit to the cardiac wing of Bethesda North Hospital in Cincinnati. I suffered what was labeled a "small" heart attack. I remember thinking "if this is small I'd hate to see medium."
Per the advice of my Doctor I changed my diet, started exercising more and decided to work on controlling stress. This book is about the stress control part of my change: For the past four years I have written a daily list: Great things that happened today. Each day I celebrate the great things that happened. Since I started this journey I've met some fascinating people, discovered new recipes and celebrated life. My goal is to share the celebration with you and start a "Great Things" movement.We can do it, because great things happen all around us and they happen every day.
