I can't go to Detroit. I would, however, rather love to see our Zips on tv in the best possible atmosphere. I live amongst 1,000 sports bars in Cleveland. But I want to be with ZIPS FANS.
Where to go?

Just head of this on WKNR. Kenny Roda actually said "go to this event dadgummit!!!!"
The Cleveland Sports & Business Alliance was formed with three things in mind:
Sports, Business & Networking.
Presented by ESPN Cleveland & 212 Capital Group, the Cleveland Sports & Business Alliance is uniting the area's top companies & their love of sports to create the most dynamic business-to-business networking group ANYWHERE!
The Cleveland Sports & Business Alliance is the most unique business networking group in the metro area, focusing on the "team concept," in which membership is both fun & informative. This is not your average, run-of-the-mill, every week at 7 a.m. networking group. This group is for serious business people committed to sharing ideas, knowledge, & expertise, translating into solid business referrals & strong, lasting, business relationships.
The Alliance meets twice a month; once for a member luncheon, and once for a happy hour. The luncheon will feature a sports celebrity speaker with ties to the Cleveland area, along with a featured business member of the month. The members will then have at least 45 minutes to network! During the monthly happy hours, socializing & networking are the only things on the lineup card. There will even be a few fun surprises in store for some of our upcoming happy hours that will further add to the group’s uniqueness!

What, Exactly, Is Akron Up To?
The plight of the mid-major college football program
By Michael Weinreb on April 20, 2012
On Terry Bowden's desk, lost amid two unopened bottles of Diet Mountain Dew, a jar of antacids, and a precarious stack of legal pads, is a book called The Greatest Salesman in the World. I have no idea if Bowden has read it multiple times or if someone sent it to him on a lark; at one point, I begin to broach the subject, but Bowden has a genial way of filibustering that makes it easy to lose the thread of the conversation. Given the task he faces, the book's presence is so overt that it's probably better left unaddressed.
It is April in Akron, Ohio, which means, as it does at college campuses across America, that the peculiar ritual of spring football is nearing its culmination. As far as I can tell, there is no real purpose for spring football other than to traffic in blind optimism about the season to come, and nowhere has blind optimism been in shorter supply than in Akron, where the hometown college football team — reflecting the ongoing struggles of its city since the rubber industry imploded — has foundered about for decades in search of an identity. This, Bowden knows, is the primary reason why he's been hired; his name, passed down by a father who won more games than any major-college coach other than Joe Paterno,1 brings a cachet that his predecessors did not have. At this point, the Akron job is as much an executive sales position as it is a coaching position, a reframing of a long-ignored commodity, of a football team that is better known for its snappy nickname and its adorable mascot than for any game it has ever won. The Zips have been victorious two times in the past two seasons; the brand-new 30,000-seat on-campus stadium they moved to in 2009 was barely filled to half its capacity.
"After a while, it becomes a vicious cycle," Bowden says. "But we've got a fresh start. We're selling a dream. There's nothing inherent here that suggests we can't be successful."
Bowden is considerably rounder now than in his late 30s, when he was hired at Auburn just as the Tigers fell into the limbo of NCAA probation (he led them to an undefeated season, then got forced out despite a six-year record of 47-16-1). He has admitted in the past that he is a notorious stress eater, and when he greeted me in the hallway after lunch, he extracted a piece of electric-green candy from a bowl on the front desk and slipped it into his cheek. "Are you taping me?" he said. Then he directly addressed my iPhone, as if a recruit might somehow get ahold of this recording: If I don't sound proper, I got a piece of candy in my mouth.
