During the Cavaliers short playoff run and "Miracle of Richfield" year in 1976, the Indians stunk and the Browns not very good. When the Browns were a Super Bowl contender in the mid to late 80s, the Indians and Cavaliers were doormats. By the time the Cavaliers burst on the scene in the 1988-1989 season, the Browns were at the end of their Super Bowl contending years and about to begin the near-20 years of rudderless suck we have come to know, and the Indians were still a cellar dweller. By the time Michael Jordan put the final dagger in the Price-Daugherty-Nance Era Cavaliers in a four game sweep in the 1993 playoffs, the Indians were on the cusp of their playoff run in the 90s, and the Browns were stuck in the middle of the Belichick Years going nowhere. When the Indians finally emerged in 1994 as a title contender and went on their run, the Cavaliers were sliding and dying as a franchise, while the Browns were a year away from being moved by Art Modell. Finally, when the Indians playoff run in the 90s came to a close in 2001, we were left with three teams in complete disarray. This is the first time since we have had three teams in this city that two teams are legit title contenders. And, even before the Cavaliers, except for a brief moment in the 50s, the Indians and Browns were never title contenders at the same time. Some might say that The Cleveland Experience (TCE) died when the Cavaliers won the LeBron lottery in May 2003. It would be very hard to argue that, as since then the Cavaliers have gone from league doormat to league super power, the Indians have gone from tearing the team apart to tearing apart the league, and the Browns have gone from laughing stock to respectability. All of this has happened in the four years since the LeBron Lottery. This year was really our first shot at a title since 1997, which may only be ten years ago but feels like a lifetime. With that, a whole new generation of fans faced the cold realities of what TCE is for the first time this year with the Indians and Cavaliers coming up just short of a title. These new fans have now been indoctrinated into why being A Cleveland Fan can scar you for life, and they now join the rest of their Cleveland Fan brethren who has lived through all the heartbreaks the last 40 years. Welcome aboard. The Indians and Cavaliers can realistically win a title any year from this point forward for the next several years. In addition to that, the Browns finally have a heartbeat and appear on the verge of waking from their 18 year coma and becoming respectable again and a potential playoff team. What we are seeing is hopefully the end of this city's drought of championships. With three teams now working together to end TCE once and for all, we no longer have a gun with a single bullet to kill off the ghosts of TCE. We have many. Yes, there is no better time to be A Cleveland Fan.
