As an Ohio boy at heart and forever a fan of Cleveland sports teams, I’ve been conditioned by a lifetime of game day let downs, defeats, and disappointments to annually at the end of each football season take comfort in the old saw of a saying…
Well, there’s always next year.
But guess what sports fans, this just may be the next year every long disappointed yet always devoted Cleveland Browns fan has been hoping for.
There’s an energy around this year’s team that hasn’t been felt since Bernie Kosar and the Kardiac Kids days before him…
Yeah, it’s been that long.
Sadly, neither of those two eras of the so-called Browns glory years ended in Super Bowl victory so even our fondest memories are of ultimately defeated teams.
So, in celebration of hope and the pursuit of glory, I present to you the jam of an anthem called “Cleveland Rocks” as sung by that wacky group The President of the United States (I’m not sure if they’ve any affiliation with Cleveland but who cares) and as performed by the cast of The Drew Carey Show, Drew Carey being one of our most beloved Clevelanders, as this week’s Sunday Song to Spark the Spirit and Summon the Moves of the Dance*…
*Yes, all you beautiful Brits out there, I know “Cleveland Rocks” is an Ian Hunter (of Mott the Hoople fame, of course) song that was originally entitled “England Rocks” so a much deserved hat tip to you and yours for the much appreciated musical assist in summoning the day’s groovy dance moves.
