Very cool. I think the mood around the community is one of complete celebration. Well, I can vouch for University Park anyway. GO ZIPS! GO LEBRON! GO AKRON! SOCCER KINGS!

As much as I hate LeBron, he did just put out the word of our soccer program to the millions of people that follow him on twitter. Kinda conflicted on this one.

Love it. Thanks LeBron. And thanks for putting all the doubters in their place by maintaining your loyalty to Akron...your home town.

You guys will find anybody to complain about, won't you? We just got a shout-out from a guy with almost 1.2 million followers. I'm willing to bet more people heard about our championship through his tweet than actually watched the game on TV. This is NOT a bad thing. Stop complaining and keep celebrating! This smiley can not possibly get enough use. :NCAAC:

LeBron is basically an honorary alum. Good to hear he's giving props.

This was played on WTAM....but the video version is certifiably GOLD. It'll be the biggest hit in the country (or at least Northeast Ohio) as soon as it gets out. And it says it all....

When he ponies up a couple mil, then we can talk. Until then, I guess I have to be thankful for some shoes...

Similar to my

I'd root for Hamas if they were playing Can't State

motto, the

I'd be happy if the Devil (or LeBron) talked up a deserving soccer team like ours

is in effect here.

So i'll let LeQuitter slide one time for his props to the U. Even if he's an idiot for calling it "Akron U".

You've got to admit that, even though technically incorrect, Akron U is more natural sounding that U of Akron, not to mention easier to type on a tiny cell phone keyboard. Sometimes it pays to embrace a twisted but cool-sounding nickname that won't go away instead of fighting the inevitable.
