After the Cavaliers won, their arena turned into an Indians World Series viewing party
Cleveland is on top of the sports world tonight. It began with the Cavaliers getting their championship rings in a pregame ceremony and continued on with their decisive 117-88 victory over the Knicks in their first game of the season. At the same time, Game 1 of the World Series was being played next door as the Indians attempted to follow up the Cavs with a championship of their own.
Cleveland sports fans faced the predicament -- a wonderful predicament, but a predicament, nonetheless -- of which exciting sporting event to follow. Fortunately, the fans who opted to go to the Cavs game were able to keep tabs on the Indians.

When the Cavs game ended, the World Series game was still going strong. With available video screens hanging over the court, they opted to show the baseball game and effectively turned the arena into a makeshift World Series viewing party.
