The "unbeatable Cleveland" virus has spread from one professional team to the next.

June 1 to June 11 : Lake Erie Monsters win all four games in the AHL Calder Cup finals to win the title.

June 12 to June 16 : Cleveland Cavaliers win last three games in the NBA Finals to win the title.

June 17 to June 28 : Cleveland Indians win the last 11 games they've played.

June 18 to June 25 : Cleveland Gladiators win both games they've played.

The QB string o' shame started with Couch and ended with Johnny Foobo).
