It's all Cleveland (and Miami), all the time this week.

ESPN kicks it off with a feature about "Believeland" from Outside the Lines right now.  Poignant and often true.

It starts with love.

Cleveland is a town that loves. It loves its own history, and the harsh winters, and parish bake sales, but, mostly, it loves to root. Clevelanders root for new stadiums and old teams, for shiny halls of fame, for jobs and urban gardens, for gritty, blue-collar athletes.

Rooting is their civic disease.
