CLEVELAND– It was a day 52 years in the making. And what better way to remember the Cleveland Cavaliers championship season than with a coloring book?
Scott O’Brien, who was born and raised in Cleveland, launched a Kickstarter campaign last week to fund his new coloring book, “Why is Daddy Overjoyed on Sunday?” It’s a followup to “Why is Daddy Sad on Sunday?” which documents the troubled life of a Cleveland sports fan.
“It was time to do a happy one and celebrate this Cavs team that did the improbable,” O’Brien said.
The book will be about 60 pages and will contain illustrations looking back on the 2015-2016 season, including LeBron James’ epic block in Game 7, Steph Curry throwing his mouthguard in Game 6 and the Cavs’ unofficial mascot, Lil Kev.
“Being a Cleveland sports fan has its rough sports, obviously. Overall, it’s a pretty awesome experience to be a part of this fan base,” O’Brien said.
He’s raised more than $1,500 of his $5,000 goal.
O’Brien said he would love to see another championship in Cleveland this October, as Indians continue to lead the American League Central.
