Now that’s how you grab the bull by the horns. It’s nice to see someone with an entrepreneurial sense who takes advantage of a crappy situation rather than whining about it. A gentleman named Dave has created a website called — pardon my French but this was his choice — KissMyAssLeBron.com. Here’s what he told us at Larry Brown Sports about why he began the site:
It has been a whirlwind of a process to say the least. I am a die-hard Clevelander who has been a season ticket holder for all 3 teams in the city. I also am the creator and founder of SteelerHaters.com, MichiganStillSucks.com and many more sites devoted to “spreading the hate” of Cleveland Rivals. And to say that we are pissed is an understatement. It’s not about what was decided, because we are above that. It’s about how it was decided and how we found out. To get dumped on worldwide TV was the ultimate kick in the junk.
Dave’s thoughts are obviously shared by thousands of Clevelanders and other LeBron-haters across the nation, including Dan Gilbert. I don’t care how much LeBron James loves himself or thinks he’s made of steel, if he starts seeing fans with these shirts on when he’s on the road it’s going to bother him. No, I’m not saying he’s going to have a 2-for-22 shooting night because he sees an inappropriate shirt about his mom, but it has to irritate him a little. After all, there are even some who say the Delonte West rumors could have contributed to his less-than-stellar play against the Celtics in the playoffs. We’re going to see plenty of this type of merchandise in the near future, so stay tuned.Google+
