Tonight is basketball-geddon and the media is going nuts over Lebron’s return to Cleveland. Lot’s of people are wondering just how bad things are going to be and even President Obama has chimed in.
Should Cleveland try to stay classy? Will things get out of hand? No one is exactly sure but it’s guaranteed must-see TV. But can Cav’s fans learn something from what happened last week in Reno to Boise State?
Here’s what the internet is saying:
“No amount of booing will make the hurt and frustration go away for these fans, but then again no amount of anything will make that hurt and frustration go away. Get in three quick pops while Jamario Moon holds James’ hands behind his back, chuck a quarter at him after holding it over a lit lighter, or come up with the nastiest “TNT” acronym you can on a poster board. It won’t make it any better.”

“But take note, Cleveland: Amid all heartbreak and anger toward (Boise State kicker Kyle) Brotzman, people somehow got a grip. Perspective did roar back in. It was natural to be upset at how Boise State lost the game. The Dream gave way to The Kicks. But when some fans saw the punishment Brotzman was taking, they began creating their own Facebook pages as a rebuttal until there were two, then three, then nearly a dozen of them full of supportive messages for Brotzman.
One of them, “Bronco Nation Loves Kyle Brotzman”, had 39,685 fans as of Thursday morning. As one woman happily noted in a post, “That’s more people than can fit inside Boise State’s stadium!”, which seats only 33,500.”

“… Even President Barack Obama voiced his opinion on James’ homecoming. “It’s going to be brutal,” Obama said today, according to the White House Pool report.”
Whatever happens, we’ll be watching.
