Last Tuesday, the Cleveland Cavaliers bumped up the start of their ring ceremony to accommodate the Cleveland Indians and Game 1 of the World Series.

Now, the Cavs are doing it again for tomorrow’s Game 6. The Cavs’ game against the Houston Rockets - which was originally scheduled for 7 p.m. - will now tip-off at 6 p.m. First pitch of Game 6 between the Indians and Chicago Cubs is scheduled for 8 p.m.

During the first Cavs-Indians double feature, the Cavs throttled the Knicks and the Indians won Game 1 behind a dominant performance from pitcher Corey Kluber. On Saturday, when the Indians were in Chicago the same day the Cavs played the Magic, fans stayed at the Q after the Cavs’ win to watch the Cavs beat the Cubs.

If tomorrow night goes the way last Tuesday went, you’ll see potentially 40,000 people - plus everyone out at the bars - celebrating Cleveland’s second world title this year. How cool is that?
