3 years ago today, @joelobo9 came in from St. Louis because I had managed to snag 3 game 7 watch party tickets in the 45 seconds before they sold out - one for me, one for Jenna, one for lubelski. Jenna doesn’t really care about sports, and she particularly doesn’t like how emotional they can get for fans, but this photo...oh man, this photo. She took a video of the Q going absolutely bananas that joe sent me the other day. It’s pure joy. My eyes welled up and I smiled ear to ear during it, but I’m not posting it here because it’s still too close to my heart. But this photo. I think this was taken when lebron shouted out his “Cleveland. This is for you!” And the place went absolutely bonkers. Since jenna wasn’t as emotionally invested as we were (she later confessed to not being able to breathe for the last 5 minutes of the game because it was too intense and she was too nervous), she wanted to document our reactions. I think she did a good job. Go cavs. PS does anyone besides us remember the guys outside the casino with instruments and a speaker going “nba champions....nba champions...doo wop doo wop doo wop doo wop” etc Or was that just us and like 100 strangers? #cleveland#clevelandgram#cavs#cavswarriors#gocavs#nbafinals#nba#theq#nbachampions#lebronjames#game7
With @rocketmortgagefieldhouse closed up for summer to complete its transformation, let @moeninc take you on an exclusive tour of the new Player Lounge that was custom built for the 2018-19 season! Want to learn more about the full renovation? Visit rmfhtransformation.com.
June 19, 2016. A week before I watched the Monsters raise the Calder Cup in this building to this song and thought to myself man the Cavs were supposed to have this moment, they had just gone down 3-1 two days before. A week later I was singing along to We are the Champions with 20,562 Cavs fans..so surreal!!
Get an inside look at the progress taking place at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. Fun fact: our new north glass atrium features 1,475 glass pieces that weigh 990 pounds each. We can’t wait to see you in September, Cleveland!
There will never be a better Father’s Day than the 2016 Father’s Day that we got to spend with David and my Dad in the Q. However, as we have all learned, life is very fragile and precious, so we are grateful for every Father’s Day we have together! Hope all Dads out there have a great day! We love you, David, Dad, John, and Marv! #happyfathersday#cavs#family
I had MANY potholes in my path as a father(some i never went back to fill). I thank God I had great wise older men around me to show me the way. Thee Gr8 1 will always be my greatest creation because she made me better. No matter what happens in life I’m grateful God blessed me to be a father.
Over here reminiscing. Sometimes you have to take some time to reflect on the journey. Yesterday someone asked me how long I have been writing and had to really think about it. It’s been a long time now. And when I really took it seriously things started to really take off for me. And I’ve been FOCUSED ever since. These photos are from the 2015-2016 @cavs championship season. I used to drive 5.5 hours from Washington D.C. to my hometown of Cleveland to cover these games for the Cavaliers. It was a blessing to had actually worked for the @cavs as a Cavs employee from 2010-2012. So when it came time to get a media pass for some games it was NO ISSUE. I was in there! Matter of fact, there has always been an open door policy for me at @theqarena or what is now @rocketmortgagefieldhouse. Life is all a journey. Gotta appreciate it along the way. #cleveland#hometown#clevelandcavaliers#theq#cavs#nba#robparks#robparksjr#sportsjournalist @nba
