It was a big day for the trophy (which was escorted by Cavs GM David Griffin), but also for the famous blimp, as this was the very first time that the blimp has taken a sports championship trophy for a flight.

Take a look at the trophy's bird's eye.....um....blimp's eye-view! (Video courtesy of Goodyear.)
