From Courthouse News (via Ben Maller):

A man sued the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Quicken Loans Arena to discover the identity of the NBA team’s mascot, Moondog, who allegedly struck his arm to make him drop a sign, rupturing a tendon in the process, in Cuyahoga County Court.

The Cavaliers legal response to this suit was written in Comic Sans.

Maybe as part of this lawsuit we can find out why the Cleveland Cavaliers have a dog mascot. Named Moondog. Just curious.

    Alan Freed, the famed 1950′s rock ‘n roll DJ, was based in Cleveland and referred to himself as the Moondog.

    Do people at PBT not know how to use Google?
    David A. already nailed it on the head. The Moondog Coronation Ball, held in Cleveland, was thrown by Alan Freed who made popular the term “rock and roll”. Hence why Cleveland is the home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

    Typical shoddy journalism.
    Aren’t you expected to deliver facts when writing a piece? Let’s assume you do. OK. How do you normally go about getting correct facts about items you have no knowledge of? coughNBAcough…
    Google it. Ask someone. Use a book.
    Man, how did you get a job?

    Isn’t there any editing, screening or censorship for this blog? Why are you allowing low-life, moronic, racist remarks like that of the ‘Anonymous’ coward above?
