It’s not everyday that I picture I randomly took on vacation this past summer ends up as news, and later on a blog. Ok, that’s actually never happened on any day in my life- up until last week. But then again, I’m one of the few people in this country who actually “vacations” in Cleveland, so weird is as weird does.

Remember the most infamous Cleveland Indians game of the summer? When Sandusky, Ohio native Matthew Bellamy wore a fresh, new Miami Heat LeBron James jersey to a Cleveland Indians-New York Yankees game and this transpired.

It overshadowed A-Roid’s failure to reach 600* and occurred just a couple weeks after LeBron declared his intention to “take his talents to South Beach.” The Bellamy incident was to the long hot summer of NBA Free Agent Love what the Battle of Yorktown was to the American Revolution.

Conversing with Lebron Heat Jersey Guy in Cleveland

You heard about the guy who wore a Lebron Heat jersey to a Cleveland IndiansNew York Yankees game Wednesday night? It created such a scene that it became national news, and the story is spreading like wildfire over the internet.

Yet the Yankee fans present looked downright classy and sophisticated compared to the fun at the old ballpark that went down.

Seriously Cleveland, you had a NBA star. Now he’s gone, GET OVER IT!

But on the other hand, Matt “LeBron Heat Jersey in Cleveland” Bellamy did something described as extremely attention whorish at best, completely knobbish (yes, I know these are not words) at worst. (Or maybe being an attention whore is worse than being a complete knob?) And Ohio State fans, he’s also one of your people. Thought I’d mention it.
