And back to the supposed rivalry.. when the Pens reached the Stanley Cup final Cleveland fans were heard murmuring "oh, no.. not another championship for Pittsburgh." But then, in the same breath they'd say "it's only hockey.. their baseball team sucks."


Anything to make them feel good right? Sad thing is they are right about the baseball team but I think their team blows too!

I am holding onto the hope that Cleveland never wins a championship in my lifetime. I am praying Le Bron will leave after 2010. If he remains here Cleveland will eventually get the championship that has eluded them.


I actually am a big Cavs fan believe it or not. Being on the Pa line here it is about an hour to Pittsburgh and an hour and a half to Cleveland, so i do make it to my share of Cavs games a year. They are pretty fun to watch. The Pitt Panthers are fun to watch but that's college. Also i didn't jump on the Cavs bandwagon when they got Lebron, i have been a fan for about 15 years now.

estrago, yes.. the Indians are terrible this year. They really had a special thing going in the late ninties. They sold out every game for four straight years at (then) Jacobs Field. Then the new owner decided he didn't want to spend money. I would be so angry if I was a Tribe fan. Now they're talking about trading Cliff Lee and Victor Martinez. I can understand them wanting prospects for Lee, but Victor is well loved here. Horrible organization.

Colin.. so you've been with the Cavs since the Shawn Kemp days. lol I haven't been to a Cavaliers game in over twenty years. I go to Cleveland State games now and then, as well as Baldwin Wallace College. I just enjoy high school and college basketball a lot more.

If they are a horrible organization, what would you call the Pirate organization?

"Big time" in their own minds eye and playing in an overrated conference. When will they replace one of their non-con gimme games with Pitt?[/quote]

What? You don't like facing the Temple Owls at home every year? Ha! The Nittany Lions may go 12-0 this season but their schedule really is a joke.

As long as you have 108,000 fans willing to watch blowouts over Temple and Akron there will be no change.

And Syracuse? Akron killed the Orange IN Syracuse last year and the Zips were mediocre at best. I have to hand it to Coach Tressel. He schedules two or more MAC schools at home every year but in five years the Buckeyes will have played USC and Texas twice each.

The Buckeyes will play the Miami Hurricanes in 2010 & '11 and have the Cal Golden Bears scheduld for 2012 & '13.

OSU also does not play FCS schools as does Penn State, and they don't schedule eight home games every year.

Just highlight what you want in the box and click the "Quote" button just under the Subject line...
