Dave didn't know what he was getting into when he agreed to this podcast. Craig was mad and he wasn't going to be talked down.

Al Laiman has a very interesting back-story. We've just come to know each other through the Patreon universe, but he's an author and now runs The Inciting Incident podcast. Even though it doesn't have anything to do with Cleveland sports, that's what drew us together. He's got Ohio roots and is a fan of all those teams to this day even in enemy territory in Pennsylvania.

We've long been admirer's of Terry Pluto's at WFNY. He's also been on the podcast a few times over the years.

We're giving three copies of this book away, so please leave a comment on this post telling us your favorite Cavaliers Championship anecdote since they won the title. We'll select some random winners and try to get these books in your hands by Christmas.
