Cherise Navidad’s Twitter Promise

Last Sunday, as the Dallas Mavericks ended up beating the Miami Heat in this years NBA Finals, I made a Twitter promise.  When the game was to tight for me to handle, I did what any other sane basketball fan who desperately wanted the Heat to lose would do, anything to push the Mavericks over the edge!

I made this Twitter promise, and we all know that Tweets are binding contracts!

tweet Cherise Navidads Twitter PromiseThanks to Cavs For Mavs for retweeting this to over 6,000 followers, I started getting all kinds of replies from people all over the country!  Every response from “get over it” to “thanks for the support”.  Still today, I am getting responses on this Tweet as it making its way around around the interwebs.  In fact, a Mavericks fan sent me a tweet today asking if I was still going through with it.

Without thinking too much about it, because after all, it was a silly tweet that really showed my desperation for a LeBron James loss, apparently it is news worthy.  I was contacted by a journalist from the New York Daily News who wanted to do an interview with me!  Never did I think, as I was watching the finals and tweeting, that one little thought would pick up and take off like that!  Cleveland Scene even picked up on the story!

Next Wednesday is the big day!  Like the article says, it is not up to me on the name this time, but Kevin knows that I sent this out and that the pressure is on to follow through!

    I’m still ecstatic Lebron lost yet again in the finals! I hope he never wins a championship his whole career! In fact, I hope in leaving Cleveland, he lost his chance to win a championship! And I hope Cherise keeps her promise, it’s obvious LBJ doesn’t keep his promises! GO MAVS!!!

      Thanks for not hating Tim! LOL I just really wanted LBJ to lose this one because I didn’t want to see him get his way. Especially the arrogant and self-serving way he did left the city. I explained to the reporter (who left this part out), I’m just a desperate Clevelander :-) (not sure where the revenge part came in…) and the overall sentiment in the city with him is disappointment. I hope he finds what he is looking for and achieves his goals, but he also needs to do it with class and tact. Everyone deserves to accomplish their dreams, when they work hard to do so, not because they are entitled to it. He’s a great player, not going to deny that, but…Dirk did play like a champ. Didn’t give up, even with a fever, didn’t let the antics of D-Wade or LeBron get to him (very childish and I don’t buy their excuse, we all know they were ragging on him) and he stuck with his team for 14 years to get to this point! I’m very happy for the Mavericks!
