Well, it's that time of year again --- the wind is blowing, the Ohioans are noting the crappy weather, and the Chosen Ones (Your Cleveland Cavaliers) are unofficially tipping off their season tonight. Twitter can barely contain their excitement:
SB NATION IS SO PUMPED THEY DEDICATED THE ENTIRE DAY TO THE CAVS!
Jacob and Justin are OUT OF THEIR FREAKING MINDS.
Cavs preseason tonight— Allisan Aliff (@AliffAllisan) October 8, 2013
Basketball hoops and hearts. This girl loves Cavs basketball if my major in emoticons from Brown is worth what I paid for it.
Chris warns the Bucks that they're about to get run over, as if the Cavs were a speeding Ambulance that cannot be stopped. Seriously though, my Aunt got side swiped by an ambulance once, they are hard to stop. Anyone who plays GTA understands.
This young lady's excitement expanded to four, FOUR, hashtags. Cheetah Legos for everyone! Im with you, Tiffany.
I know it's only preseason, but I am freaking stoked to watch the Cavs tonight! New roster, new coach, new season. Let's go! #CavsNation— Cavs Nation (@TheCavsNation) October 8, 2013
Even Cavs Nation is beside themselves with excitement.
WTAM will be having some interviews at 7:06
Bertrum thinks time sucks. I think time sucks too bro, but I'm 26. Time is working against me at this point.
What will #Cavs preseason record look like? I'm saying 8-0..— Cleveland Cavs AUS (@AUS_Cavaliers) October 8, 2013
Australia thinks the Cavs will go undefeated. Have you seen how many scary monsters they have in Australia? Google it. Or don't google it, it kind of ruins your day knowing some of this stuff exists.
It's almost as good as Christmas Eve!! Cavs 1st preseason game tomorrow night!!!!— Kaitlyn Popson (@kaympop) October 8, 2013
I think a lot of people like Christmas more than Cavs season, but the heart is in the right place, welcome to the bandwagon.
By now you're probably as geeked about this as I am, so a friendly reminder: Never get too happy, kid.
I have a simple request: Tomorrow is the Cavs first preseason game. They will be rusty. It will be ugly. Don't overreact to anything at all— David Zavac (@DavidZavac) October 8, 2013
-The Game WILL be aired on FSO tonight for the Fred and AC fan club. and WTAM 1100 for you people that can't get enough John Michael and Jim Chones.
-Tyler Zeller will NOT play. He has a strained hip flexor.
-Alonzo Gee is doubtful with a sore hamstring.
-Brandon Knight will most likely lose an ankle somewhere, bring popcorn.
