Cleveland sports fan using Kickstarter to create coloring book depicting disappointing sports moments in Cleveland history


The city of Cleveland has definitely had more than its fair share of disappointing sports moments throughout its history. And now one entrepreneur is looking to chronicle those forgettable moments by creating a coloring book.

Scott O'Brien is using Kickstarter to help raise funds for legal and publishing costs. According to the Kickstarter post, the book "will be roughly 55 pages long, with 25 black and white illustrations depicting scenes of notable Cleveland sports failures."

When I was growing up in Cleveland, the Browns had opportunities to make the Super Bowl behind Bernie Kosar. We all know how that ended. The Cavs also seemed poised to make some deep post-season runs. Nope. And the Indians came one inning away from a World Series Title. Then it just kept getting worse...

This project is not about reopening old Cleveland wounds. I'll leave that to the national sports media. This is about having a laugh at the sheer lunacy of what we have "witnessed" over the years. We know we have to laugh sometimes to avoid losing our minds.

At the time of this writing, 122 people had elected to donate approximately $4,632 to the humorous cause. Folks who want to contribute have until March 17 to do so.
