I am writing in reference to the decision to give Cleveland the honor of playing home to the rock-and-roll Hall of Fame, when we know Philadelphia is undoubtedly the birthplace of rock-and-roll. I urge all Philadelphia musicians who believe that Philadelphia is the birthplace of rock-and-roll to withhold their material from Cleveland and for Philadelphia to establish a rock-and-roll museum here. I urge people to call or write to city officials, radio stations, musicians, etc., and give their support to this issue.

The AFL has wanted to create a rival for the Soul since the team joined the league in 2004. It once put Dallas in the same division, hoping to mimic Eagles-Cowboys, but that didn't work. There was a brief period when the Soul and the New York Dragons used to fight each other before exhibition games, but that fizzled out when the New York franchise folded. Currently, Cleveland is the villain of choice among Soul followers. A rivalry needs animosity (which the Soul and Gladiators share)

Kyrie Irving led Cleveland with 26 points, but was plagued by foul trouble. The all-star guard picked up his fourth foul with five minutes remaining in the third quarter and went to the bench with the Nuggets leading by 72-61.

THE CLEVELAND Gladiators got under the Soul's collective skin before the game and stayed there long enough to ruin Philadelphia's home opener, 68-62. A game that was supposed to be further affirmation of the strides the Soul has taken in burying last year's mess deep in the litter box instead revealed some clumps. Cleveland quarterback John Dutton threw nine touchdown passes, but it was the Soul's lack of discipline that had head coach Doug Plank fuming afterward. "Tonight, we established a new low for our team," Plank said.

Never mind that Cleveland has been most famous in recent years for rivers that are so polluted they catch fire and the reek from Lake Erie that's severe enough to singe the eyebrows - just wait until 2080. While New York City will be parched, Iowa and Nebraska will be a desert, and Miami will be fighting the ocean in its streets, a new study shows that Cleveland will be one of the "garden spots of tomorrow. " In the Great Greenhouse of the next century, as predicted by scientists studying the effects of pollution on global weather, Cleveland will have a balmy climate and plenty of water.

SOUL DEFENSIVE back Rayshaun Kizer, one of the team's leaders, did not mince words when asked about tomorrow's road playoff game against the best team in the league. Kizer does not care that Cleveland went 17-1, that they didn't lose a game at home and that they beat the Soul twice. He even brushed aside his own team's 30-point loss to Pittsburgh a week ago, chalking it up to self-destruction caused by internal pressure. "We know that we're better than them," Kizer said. "It's a good matchup on paper, but we're better than them.

How long ago does last year's All-Star Game seem to Curt Schilling? Back then, the Phillies were about 700 games under .500. Back then, the Schilling-to-the-Indians trade rumors were flying. Back then, he was in Cleveland, wearing a Phillies uniform, being treated as if he were Rocky Colavito. He got a standing O before the game from 44,000 people. He got a sales pitch from his limo driver about the greatness of Cleveland. He was The Man. And yesterday, on the day before his second All-Star Game, he was just another guy. "I didn't even get a limo from the airport this year.

IN THEIR THREE games last year, Cleveland was the baby and the Soul was the diaper. Each time, the Soul had a late lead against its division rival and each time, the Gladiators strutted off with the win. Those losses lingered like a trash bin filled with rotting seafood. "A lot of times last year, we fell short and our record [9-9] reflected that," defensive lineman Bryan Robinson said. "This year, we're trying to stay on ourselves about going the extra mile, doing the extra work.

CLEVELAND - Sixers coach Brett Brown once cut Matthew Dellavedova from the Australian National Team. The scrappy backup point guard exacted his revenge last night. Dellavedova made three three-pointers and scored 10 points in the final 7:09, allowing the Cleveland Cavaliers to escape with a 97-84 win over Philadelphia. The 76ers, who trailed 59-39 early in the third quarter, made it a one-possession game three times in the fourth before Dellavedova caught fire to fend off their upset bid. "My Australian friend wasn't a friend tonight," Brown quipped.

LeBRON JAMES had to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers. When he became a free agent at the end of the 2013-14 season, he could have re-upped with the Miami Heat, made as much money as possible under the NBA's collective bargaining agreement and likely won several more titles with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh as his wingmen. James, who is out for 2 weeks with knee and back strains and will miss tonight's game against the Sixers at the Wells Fargo Center, could have gone to New York as the conquering hero who would finally bring championship glory to the Knicks after 4 decades, or he could have helped Kobe Bryant win one more title in Los Angeles while taking the Lakers into another era of greatness.

Dion Waiters was en route to Los Angeles last month for a weeklong workout session with pro basketball trainer Rob McClanaghan, an annual West Coast trip that had become as much a part of Waiters' offseason routine as the trade rumors that always seem to include his name, when his cellphone buzzed. He answered it. "Be ready," LeBron James told him. James had not yet announced that he had decided to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers. So he was coy in his brief conversation with Waiters, who grew up in South Philadelphia and has been the Cavs' starting shooting guard since they drafted him fourth overall out of Syracuse in 2012.
