Why Cleveland’s Championship Matters (And Doesn’t)

“Daddy’s hometown is very close to doing something that’s never happened before. I don’t want you to know it as a place that always loses. And I don’t want you to think Daddy is a loser.”

A lot of people wrote a lot of things about what Cleveland’s recent NBA championship win meant for its long-suffering fans.

But this piece from writer Sam Greenspan, who celebrated his first Father’s Day on the day the championship was won, is by far my favorite.
