Steinbrenner's final salute to an old friend

This has little to do with Cleveland sports, but I hope you'll take a look anyway.

I was on Facebook today and saw a post from a friend linking to a CNN story about her grandfather, Alex Clowson. The central Ohioan played minor league baseball from 1935 to 1941, and he never stopped loving the sport. Several years later he owned a tavern and had one notable regular -- George Steinbrenner.

I'm not going to try to retell the rest of the touching story. You should read it for yourself.

Cleveland, you didn’t expect anything less, did you?

This isn’t just heartbreak city, it’s gut wrenching-tear spilling-rip your heart out onto the ground and stomp on it while the whole world laughs at us.

Eight days after whatshisface announced his “decision,” I can’t help but wonder, when will this debacle ever end.

Time after time, year after year, the good ole’ Cleveland curse doesn’t just rear it’s ugly head, but it makes it a point to do so in such an unbelievable fashion that leaves everyone disheartened, disgusted, disturbed and other “di” words (dipressed?) that I don’t care to think of right now.
