It was a big night for Ohio, and while they’re probably not unhappy for Cincinnati’s Dean Ambrose and his WWE World Heavyweight championship victory, the big news happened Northeast of the town the new titleholder calls the “Nasty Nnati”.
On the shores of Lake Erie, they’re celebrating a pro team winning the top prize in their sport for the first time since 1964.

Meanwhile, Dolph Ziggler has to make even his excitement into a stand-up routine:
Take that Halleys Comet! Congrats #CLEVELAND@cavs ARE WORLD CHAMPIONS! All of Cleveland has ALWAYS been #ALLin216 #NBAFinals— Dolph Ziggler (@HEELZiggler) June 20, 2016
Seriously, and this involves no small measure of tongue-biting from this Steelers’ fan, congrats Clevelanders. Enjoy it.
