The Cavaliers have lost the first two games of the NBA's Eastern Conference Finals to the Pistons by identical scores, 79-76. There can be only one explanation - Cleveland needs at least one, and probably two, domed stadiums to compete (Detroit has two - that means they lead us 2-0 in domes and on the court). Weird, huh?

As suggested on this site previously (see Reason #52), the Dallas Cowboys' new home in Arlington, Texas has been awarded the 2011 Super Bowl. All three cities in the running - Arlington, Indianapolis and Phoenix - will have new stadiums with retractable roofs by that time. I said it before and I'll say it again - check out the Cowboys' new $1 billion home at http://stadium.dallascowboys.com/.

The April 6 home opener against the Mariners was sold out - and then snowed out. Last night's make-up game of the home opener drew less than 10,000 people despite perfect weather. The team is playing well, but the financials for this team must look horrible right now.

Today, the Indians play the Mariners, the third time the teams have tried to play the Indians "opener." The first home series in April was snowed out. Promotions for today's make-up game include a snowblower giveaway, snow machines and ice sculptures at various gates, and free McDonald's Blizzards. At least we can laugh at ourselves, after everyone was laughing at us a month ago.
