    I like the U.S. Open Cup. There’s no competition like it in any team sport in America. Even though all the amateur teams are now out of contention, they get a “Hoosiers”-like chance to play against the big boys. Don’t try making sense out of the bracket, though (http://thecup.us/2014-us-open-cup-bracket/). It’s more convoluted than a Casey Stengel interview.

    Something of a drought for the club after winning their first three. I like being able to call the Cup our own. Hope they can claim it again.

    The Cavaliers have had Cheap Nike Free Run an embarrassingly fortunate haul of high draft picks since their big LeBron letdown, starting with Kyrie Irving and continuing through the No. 1 pick this spring. Irving, the All-Star MVP, is still Cheap Nike Air Max coveted enough around the league to require a max contract extension as Cleveland’s cornerstone star. There are solid complimentary pieces around him, from defensive big Anderson Varejao to forward Tristan Thompson and still young dion waiters.
    It’s imperative that last year’s No. 1. Anthony Bennett, Nike Air Max 1 gets himself into serious NBA shape if the Cavs want to prove they didn’t whiff on that pick last June. There’s still too much pining away for LeBron Air Max 2014 James and the highly unlikely scenario that he’ll return to rescue them. Firing Mike Brown again destabilized the coaching staff and showed a shaky vision in the front office that new GM David Griffin will work together long and hard to fix. The Cavs pledged a playoff berth Nike Blazers For Sale and blew it this year.
