Reason #84 - Tarp

Before Thursday's Indians game against the Marlins in Florida, the infield tarp blew off, which soaked the left side of the infield. Tarp follies are funny, but they're not why people go to baseball games.

Reason #83 - LeBron James

LeBron James says he has a lot of work to do in the off-season to make himself better. Here's hoping he spends some time working on a roof for Jacobs Field or Browns Stadium - in addition to trying to help Cavs management attract an outside shooter and point guard, of course.

Reason #82 - Browns

Summer doesn't even start until next week, and yet, once the NBA Finals are over, this town's sports attention will turn to the Browns, a team that plays almost all of its games in cold, wet weather, and, by the way, has not been to a championship game since 1964.

Reason #81 - Brick!

Can a dome be made out of bricks? If so, you could find a lot of them at Quicken Loans Arena, where the Cavs shot 36 percent from the field overall and made just 3 out of 19 three-point shots in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

Reason #80 - Blizzard of Birds

Last night's Indians game against Seattle was a make-up from the April blizzard. Last night, left field was covered by birds, birds everywhere!

Reason #79 - San Antonio

San Antonio has the Spurs and the Alamodome, which hosts graduations, high school football, the circus, the 2008 NCAA Men's Final Four, etc. Cleveland has the Cavs and no domes or roofs - and perhaps no chance in the NBA Finals.

Reason #78 - Shadows

Shadows between home plate and the mound are an unfair advantage for pitchers and create dangerous blind spots for hitters. This is a fairness and safety issue.
