The Cleveland sports curse was a sports superstition involving the city of Cleveland, Ohio, and its major league professional sports teams, centered on the failure to win a championship in any major league sport for a period of 52 years, from 1964 to 2016. Three major league teams based in Cleveland contributed to belief in the curse: the Browns of the National Football League (NFL); the Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association (NBA); and the Indians of Major League Baseball (MLB).

Sports fans in Northeast Ohio have seen a lot in recent years. The Indians exciting rise to dominance in the American League . . . and their heartbreaking loss in Game Seven. The traitorous Browns move . . . and the teams hope-filled return.

And through it all there has been one constant: if something remarkable happens in local sports, Terry Pluto writes about itwell.

No sportswriter in Ohio has won more praise in the past decade.

For good reasons.

Pluto writes about sports as if they truly matterbecause they do to the many thousands of us who start our day with the sports pages.

And he finds the stories with meaning beyond the box scores. Whether its the honorable frustration of coaching a losing high school team, the sad truth of a promising career wasted, the exhilaration of youthful talent, or the satisfaction of hard-earned success.

This is the first book to collect the finest of Terry Plutos sportswriting from the Akron Beacon Journal. For his legion of regular readers, it offers a chance to relive a decades worth of highlights. For newcomers to Pluto, it is a wonderful introduction to one of the best writers in the world of sports.

I have read some of Pluto's books and found him to be an engaging writer - this book is a collection of some of his articles from a ten year period from the early Nineties to the early Aughts. If you're familiar with Pluto's books, you'll read some of the obligatory articles in which he bemoans the Indians of the Seventies and Eighties, and the kidnapping of the Browns by dastardly Art Modell and Baltimore - they are kinda old hat and repetitive if you've read some of his books and you'll skim thru those sections. The real treasure of the book are the more personal articles and the articles of local high schools - in fact, when you're reading about the 1970's/1980's Indians, just skip thru them and start reading the more personal articles - most of the articles were obviously reprinted word for word, as is, and sometimes it makes for choppy reading - maybe some editing of some of the articles, like turning single line paragraphs into more formal paragraphs, would've have made the book even more enjoyable and allowed Pluto to put some more articles in the book. Not being from Ohio shouldn't deter you from this book becoz you'll recognize enuff of the pro names and enjoy the more personal and local stores.

I grew up a Cleveland sports fan in the 80's and 90's and still call that city my second home. Though us Ohioans have had our fair share of bad memories, we cling to those rare instances of greatnesses. We cherish the seven years of Indians dominance in baseball even if no World Series was ever obtained. We've sold out Cleveland Browns stadium year after year even when a .500 team was out of reach. We remember the glory days at Richfield Coliseum where night after night Mark Price, Brad Daughtery, Hot Rod John Williams, Larry Nance, and Craig Ehlo gave this city something to cheer about. We hope that the Lebron James's, Kellen Winslow's, and C.C. Sabathia's can lead us back to those fateful years.

Pluto's book brought tears to my eyes. It's amazing how versatile this sportswriter is. He not only covers the professional teams of Cleveland but also can intricate local stories to his readers. His stories of the Indians magic summer of 1995 and their disappointing World Series loss in 1997 brought back memories of joy and heartbreak. His views on the Browns sudden departure to Batlimore were exactly what every other Browns fan was thinking. You don't take football out of Cleveland.

Most importantly his stories reinforced our thinking on why we love our Cleveland teams. Yes we have won no championships in God knows how many years. Yes we have been the laughing stock of professional sports for a long time. But we still love our teams and we will always cherish those special memories. No one can take that away from us.

Meet Terry Pluto. Terry is an award-winning columnist for the Akron Beacon-Journal who has been covering sports for nearly 30 years. In addition to his regular sports column, he also writes a column on faith for the paper and has authored several books on pro basketball and on Cleveland sports.

The View From Pluto is a collection of some of Terry's best sports columns from roughly the past ten years. It covers an especially memorable era in Cleveland sports, including the rise of the Indians, the loss of the Browns and their return as an expansion team, the heartache of the underrated Cavs teams of the late 80s and early 90s, and the emergence of a young basketball phenom from Akron by the name of Lebron James.

But some of Terry's best columns take place far away from the limelight of the professional stage. There's the baseball league for physically and mentally challenged children. There's the underdog University of Akron football team taking on behemoth Virginia Tech. There's the small town high school basketball coach fighting cancer. There's the autistic teenager finding happiness and purpose as a team manager. There's Pluto's father who found comfort in sports even as he suffered in the final years of his life.

See, Terry understands that there's more to sports than wins and losses and cold statistics. He sees the humanity in sports and understands why sports mean so much to us. If you haven't read his work, by all means, buy this book and meet Terry Pluto.
