Alan and I had a blast together during the Cavaliers 2018 postseason run, culminating at the NBA Finals. During the playoffs, we raised the banners posted at the Cavaliers website following each victory, and advanced the Cavaliers along in our playoff bracket with series wins over the Pacers, Raptors, and Celtics. Alan especially enjoyed the city’s spirit for the Cavaliers. He made sure to point out “Whatever It Takes” signs and Cavaliers window displays around town. For Cleveland kids like Alan, all they know is winning basketball and championship-level enthusiasm in Cleveland!
Today we arrived for Chinese class early, so we did some sight-seeing on the mall area around Key Tower and Cleveland Browns Stadium. Alan loves seeing the Tower, whether it’s up close or from afar (He also went inside when he visited me at work to deliver Christmas presents when he was 3, but he doesn’t remember that).
It was a beautiful day in Cleveland – weather wise and sports wise. The Cavs began their title defense with a win over the Pacers in Gm 1 of their first round series, while the Indians beat the Tigers right next door.
