Andrew Klavan Reflects on the Most Influential Men in His Life
"Been the most important influences on you in terms of understanding manhood. We've had football coaches, grandfathers, the guest you had on your show who came on my show Jack calf of the terminal wrist. I actually said it was the fictional figures. He read about as a voracious reader as a child, the heroes from the Tom Clancy novels, who for drew Cleveland was the person who said, oh yeah, I want to be like him. Oh, it's an easy question for me to answer, but it's so much like Jackson that I'm a little embarrassed. I felt that I was consciously felt that I did not have manhood roles in my life that I was that I really admired. Which age did you realize that you were lacking that? It was like as I came into teenage teenage life. And I started to look for them in books and in movies. And the one who really struck me more than any other was Raymond Chandler, who wrote the Philip marlowe books. And the reason was this, the reason was in the first paragraph. In fact, I frequently have said that the first page of the big sleep, which is his first detective novel with Philip marlowe, is the reason I became a writer, because what it does is it describes a man who is inwardly a knight who is carrying within him the chivalric code into a world of corruption and Chandler wrote a famous essay, which back in the day I could quote by heart, but it is where we get the phrase mean streets. He said, down these mean streets, a man must go who has not himself mean, who's neither tarnished nor afraid. And when I read that, I thought that's who I want to be. I'm not going to be as a soldier, probably. I'm not going to be a police officer, but I can walk without corruption in a corrupt world. I know

"I'm talking to David Adams Cleveland at the author of a brand new book novel gods of deception and David, you were just making a point and we had to cut you off. Please forgive me and go back to that point. Just to give you some idea about the depths of evil that were perpetrated by the Soviet spies in the American government, besides Alger Hiss, Alger Hiss, by the way, on the way back from yalta, stopped in Moscow for one day with elements of the American delegation. And in a secret ceremony he was taken aside by the head of Soviet intelligence and given the order of the red star for his contributions to Soviet intelligence. That's just for beginners. But here's something even more astonishing that Americans need to know about the level, the depth of evil. That was going on at this time. There was a Soviet spy at the upper echelons of the Treasury Department by the name of Harry Dexter white. Well, in 1941, the summer of 1941, Harry Dexter white was approached by his Soviet handler. Victor pavlov was his name, same name as the guy that had the salivating dog. Victor pavlov. And he wanted to meet with Harry Dexter white at old app, it's grill in Washington, D.C., right off the Treasury Department. And Pablo says I'm going to meet you there. I'm going to have a copy of The New Yorker with me. You'll recognize me. They'd never met before. They sit down. They have lunch. And pavlov pushes a piece of paper across the table to Harry Dexter white and he says, I want you to read this and put it to memory. And white picks up the paper and reads it and nods and says, yes, I understand. What that was on that piece of paper was what the Soviets called operation snow. It was a plan to, for the U.S. to ratchet up the pressure on Japan. In summer of 1941, that is embargoes on oil and raw materials, where the idea of pressuring the Japanese so that instead of invading north in the Siberia where they'd been fighting with the Soviets for a number of years, that Japan would be forced to go south.

I mean you could have driven a mack truck through some of those holes was it. was it. Just early season jitters like. What do you make that early performance. I make that they suck. I mean and also this has got to be their linebackers early in this game. I mean my god. Fill a run gap. Anybody i get it. That's probably the best offensive line and football and in. Cleveland is the best running backs in football. So i get it. It's a huge test. That early seventeen yards at run by the touchdown. That was embarrassing. I very rarely say this. Actually mean i could've run for that. I mean there was nobody touched. There was nobody within ten yards of him. The can't happen. There were two plays with the pilots getting pushed in the end. They won the game because the went on late. They made place and with this team. Let's face it with kansas city. That defense is judge. Zoff points not yards. I don't care how many yards give up if they hold teams to field goals. That forearms are gonna win the game and they did it. They did it. They forced return to turnovers plus on special teams.

I think some of the passing the fence issues are solved by those two guys. Because clark's second best pass rusher on the team and matthew's great player.

"That cleveland crumbled i. I i didn't see that coming but we've talked about the browns a lot on the show because they've been they've been lurking around as a as a an upstart contender last year. And obviously the cheese played them in the playoffs and thing that we've said about them a lot is in cleveland's gotta play a certain way right. Cleveland cleveland wants to run. the football. cleveland wants to run play action. Cleveland wants to be a head and what they don't want to be in situations where baker mayfield has to drop back and them into the game or throw them into a lead and a big part of the skepticism. I think around the browns. This year has been can bigger. Take the leap right. That's what everyone saying. A favor could take aleve esteem stacked on paper. And i coming out of this game speaking about the bras. I'm not sure if we know the answer to that. Low baker mayfield was sensational. He really was. He was fantastic. He was averaging at one clinic. Thirteen yards of ass. He was super accurate on target. He made some throws a kaiser coverage didn't matter. He was incredible but towards the end of the game when all of a sudden when the browns born in front when the browns dictate the pace of the game and do what they wanted to do and they had to drop back because they didn't have time and they had to throw. He just wasn't able to get it done. It was a small sample size. But i don't think there's. I don't think we know what baker mayfield. It's going to be this year after this game didn't touch him for most of the game. Let's be real. I mean now. Chris you walk out. Hey to socks. Ultimately he had a very productive game. But you see the little tag on cheese defense dumpster. Fire yup pretty much. It was for the first portion of gain. That look i get it. They're missing starters. We'll get into all that that doesn't excuse what they did. In the first half of that game they were a business. I don't care who's playing. I mean you've got to be better than that. But jones made a couple of big plays. I thought ultimately i thought the coverage is actually decent portu- game a couple of good throws here and there but in the end i walk away from this game saying i think cleveland's absolutely legit play the chiefs like that and not be a good team. I i know you can always have you know team. Come in and play a weird game they hang. But that wasn't a weird game like cleveland. Cleveland deserve to be in that game. And i'll tell you right now if you're the browns you're walking out of there going. We won that game. I mean we turn the ball over all these stand and if you're walking out of their saint who cares we won we know where the pri- the better team and we didn't play well. We're missing are all pro safety and are pro bowl the end and we still want. But i think bakers good. It doesn't change my opinion of him. i think he's a good quarterback. I think. I think he's kind of like derek carr. When things are going well he can be really good when they're not it can be but i thought you saw at the end of the game. The difference mahomes made unbelievable plays and baker when when they had to throw and they couldn't just run the ball for eight yards of clip..

"Very game when you would have expected a huge crowd quite possibly a sell out of eighteen thousand five hundred. They didn't even nine thousand to their first game. So that was a a red flag right there but really you're because then that and we were talking about marketing A moment ago for the santa the fans something happened. That probably grew them in right away to how the barons we're going to operate it was suggested by the local media especially the that you were newspapers that you would be a good idea if the barons could acquire some familiar players because cleveland. Something who any of these guys. These guys have been transplanted from oakland unless people followed the nhl. They didn't know these guys. We're now our players cleveland's players there were a couple of former crusaders. Who were on the market and available one being paul schmear who had been the world hockey. Association's top defenceman. The previous season smear was caught in the problems of the crusaders. The ownership could not pay him what his contract calls for. And so the cleveland writer said hey. Schmear came from the golden seals to the crusaders. He's still on your negotiation list. So why don't you sign him. The fans would love to see this familiar face. He was very popular with the crusaders fans would love to see this really your face in a barren uniform and barron some general manager guy named bill mccreary said no no. No spare makes too much money. We can't pay that kind of money. You would upset everybody on this team because it would just totally upset our salary structure. So no we're to sign paul schmear or any of the other ex crusaders. They all make too much money. So right away. The fans of the barons are clued into the fact. That mel swayed either doesn't have it for isn't willing to spend one or the other. So what happens is at the all-star break of the seventy six seventy seven season there and are not doing well not drawing anybody to the coliseum and sweet goes to the meeting with his hat in his hand and tells the board of governors. You said i need cash now. The way the land papers reported it Like the Barons had Payroll that was to be met in the middle of january and swayed said. I'm not meeting this payroll. Nobody gets paid until we get this problem..

"Empty space. Nothing was ever built around the coliseum. Nothing nothing valenti ever envisioned came to pass none of it. Yeah millennial powerbroker in many respects. He was a founder of the cleveland. Cavaliers owned the soon to be renamed cleveland indians and and own this ahl barons franchise right so you think that he if anybody could influential and making stuff happen it would have been him. Well i mean. The idea did not seem farfetched. It really did. Not stephen farfetched and mileti did make one thing happen. Which was the coliseum itself because the coliseum was built with one hundred percent private funds not one penny and tax money was spent on the richfield coliseum so that was a miracle in and of itself on mileti got that building built without having to go into the tax payers to ask gray and white. It was completely financed privately. Are i don't want to harp too much more on the cleveland crusaders. Because frankly that's probably your next book. And i look forward to having a conversation with our lord knows that logo is great and and the story is but i want to close with one last part on this this part of the story right so and it involves. Frankly how cleveland wound up getting. The golden seals mileti own the team. Then he sold it in seventy five and then this guy jay white sold it back to him in seventy six and then literally almost like a month or two later. I think if i have the time right the nhl somehow decides to move to cleveland. And i did mileti. I guess the question is what mileti know and when did he know it And frankly it sounds to me like it was the nhl finally coming to cleveland. And then he recognizing his now newly owned rezoned crusaders had to get outta town because he didn't think he could compete there with the nhl. Is that right. How it's it's a very long and convoluted story and i do Talk about it in some detail in the book because it all ties in together the bottom line wise until world hockey association sent To legal counsel of the national hockey league on a letter stating categorically. The cleveland crusaders. No longer exists. Cleveland is no longer in the world hockey association not until that documentation was received by the nhl. Did they say okay now. The golden seals are free to move here. We needed absolute proof from the w. h. a. That this was no longer their territory. So the crusaders were gone. It was not a question of mileti realizing the crusaders couldn't compete with the barren barons would not or i should say the golden seals would not come here until they had documentation from the w. h. a. The cleveland cavaliers have been sold and moved out of the city. They no longer exist the crusaders. Yeah so but all right..

"Was rejected. So that left Nick mileti with no place else to turn for majorie hockey but do the what and the wj said short. We've got eleven teams already. But it would be good for us to have a market the size of cleveland so come on in interesting and so but that's obviously a scene center right for for how the barons ultimately sort of wound up there. I the the crusaders. And i know this is. We're kind of want to focus on the barons. But the crusaders they were they were. They played their first two seasons at the cleveland. Arena right which. I guess is in downtown. Cleveland yes they did. And then there was this richfield coliseum thing right which i think is important sort of Thing to sort of bring up in this conversation because maybe you describe it for our audience we've kinda hinted at the previous cleveland conversations but It's integral to the story whereas obviously with the barents wound up playing but it was an arena. That was built i. I don't know if it was specifically built with the crusaders in mind but it's clear that it was. It was envisioned as being a future home for not only hockey basketball but on the outskirts of cleveland. Right wasn't he even close to downtown. You know it The sports writers you out here used to call it the big house on the prairie and without it without it The golden seals would never have moved to cleveland and You it was partially responsible for the demise of the crusaders and the barons simply because it was It's not exactly equal. Distance between cleveland and akron actually was closer to akron then to cleveland but the big problem and i went to the galaxy of many many times. I started a lot of time. There not so much hockey but the basketball. So i remember what it was like trying to get to the television and what it was like trying to get into the parking lot and even more so what. It was like trying to get out of the parking lot. The problem was the coliseum. Was there was only one access road to the coliseum..

"At least a brief store history of how they floundered badly in the san francisco bay area before deciding. Cleveland was their salvation and then of course. The crux of the book is how it turned out. Cleveland was not their salvation. Yeah it's interesting too. Because i think to the outside observer. I grew up in the northeast currently live in the chicago area. Certainly aware of cleveland. And it's very strong and long-lasting sports history. But i'm quite surprised to the more i learn and go back into professional hockey and particularly the nhl. But certainly the w.h. As to why. Cleveland hadn't gotten a real taste of top tier professional hockey Prior to the nineteen seventies right. I i think most most people obviously recognized the nhl itself it's only if you will The quote unquote original six. Only six teams for god knows since the end of the second world war all way until like late. Nineteen sixties right. So there wasn't a lot of expansion-minded this there. But but you know i. It's interesting because it seems. Like cleveland was always kind of regarded as a somewhat perhaps natural market for nhl hockey or certainly hockey generally. But i'm just surprised that it took so long For cleveland to get one if not to professional franchises and until the nineteen seventies. Well in my first chapter. I and i didn't know this myself. Until i started doing the research. Cleveland had a chance to join the national hockey league in nineteen forty two The barons were invited to join the national hockey league in nineteen forty two and they said thanks. But we're not interested. So i can go into detail about that if you would like so. I'm guessing that was a minor league barron's named team. Yeah the barons of the american hockey league They go back to nineteen thirty seven thirty eight so they had only been in the in the american hockey league for five years at this point but they had coverage in the nineteen forty one forty two american hockey league season. Believe it or not. The barons had a higher attendance average per game than the new york rangers did..

"When we sort of last. We're chatting we were in the realms of football and cleveland and there i get the sense that that cleveland is very much near and dear to your heart as a subject to explore when it comes to sports teams. Yeah well lived my entire life year. And i've been in indian stan around san cavaliers fan so Yes i really am interested in in delving into the the sporting pass. Now where the book that. We're going to Discuss i used to be much more avid hockey fan than i am now. And mainly the reason was and in nineteen ninety. Two of cleveland lost. Its hockey epa which international hockey league team and went for like ten years without any hockey. And and really from the mid seventies on i. My interest in the sport had cooled. And i really can't tell you exactly what it was that made me decide to sit down at the microfilm and start looking into the two year history of the barons but i mean this is something that happened in in my lifetime. I was twenty years old when the barons came here. And so i remember them. Well and i i just thought it might be interesting to look back on one of the unfortunately Great sports disasters not only of of this community but frankly In all of major league sports the glee lebarons. We're just a a two year laughingstock. Yeah well and that. Actually that uniquely. Capitalizes its importance. When we come to look at topics that we wanna pursue. Because you know. I started this show. What four plus years ago. I must say on a whim but certainly on a on a premise or a supposition that a lot of our explorations would be sort of in this category of tragedy or serio comic or best intentions gone awry and that kind of stuff but you know certainly not all of them have come out that way but this i think certainly qualifies. I want maybe sort of get into the sort of The the two tributaries of this barren strikes. I think they're actually are two of the number number one of course as we've talked about in various or previous episodes with our pals steve courier and mark rich mill about the california golden seals. That that's probably the the most obvious but there was also this world hockey association. Dalliance with cleveland in the f. Four years immediately prior to the arrival of the barons. Do you wanna use those two topics kind of as the table center for this. Cleveland barons store. we're getting into yet absolutely. That is what i Wrote the first chapter about what happened to the crusaders and how it was absolutely imperative that the crusaders fake eight cleveland. These or the golden seals would move in. So i i do Spend quite a bit of time. Even after the golden seals had moved here. I just felt because i had talked about the crusaders in such detail. I did spend a little bit of time. Talking about how the crusaders who ultimately became the second in nation on the minnesota fighting saints of the world hockey association and how they Eventually went belly up midway through the nineteen seventy six seventy seven season and I certainly do mention the the golden fields as well..

"Our previous conversation with gary from Jeez way back to plus years ago episode one eleven. Well we talked about the all. America football conference the quote unquote league. That didn't exist. Great book great conversation. We urge you to to check it out. But gary is back this week as we get ready for his Impending release we think it sometime in october. But this book will be available is actually available for pre order about the the story of we're going to get into and it's the cleveland barons of the national hockey league. Yes cleveland had a national hockey league team. The cleveland barons two years. It was in the nineteen seventies and the book that gary is getting ready to release now available preorder as call the nhl mistake by the lake. A history of the cleveland barons and man. Oh man what a treasure trove. This story is the clip. You just heard it gives you some indication of the just the sheer craziness and futility and the odd set of circumstances both before during and certainly after the existence of the cleveland barons nineteen seventy six to one thousand nine hundred seventy eight to whole barely seasons of professional. Nhl hockey and it is a story. that's got so many different layers and elements to it. But let's set it up that clip that you just heard there was from a pittsburgh. Penguins broadcast right. So cleveland barons footage very very difficult to come by but this was a clip from october. Twenty third nineteen seventy seven on w. h. t. v. fifty three in pittsburgh and the malapropisms. And shall we say less than sterling call by the governor bob prints well known for his pittsburgh. Pirates baseball calls and legendarily. So but i you know i. I'm not so sure on on pro hockey but what you heard there and abeille assisted by Color commentary Had a pr chief. By the way for the penguins. Terry xiang for shift schiffer scheffer is a really good microcosm of the just the craziness and the futility of of the cleveland barons if you couldn't discern it there during the The third period of this game one by the by the penguins a three to two ultimately in front of fifty.

"The internet was all over when it comes to reaction. Some people love the change. Other people think it's extremely. I guess dumb to really be blunt and honest about it but truly i i mean myself my personal feelings are i understand why the name itself was chosen and as we kind of go through this conversation. Some of the reasoning behind that name. I think may be a little bit of humbug to quote scrooge sets. It's christmas in july here over the weekend. I mean bah humbug when it comes to some of the reasoning as to why they picked the guardians but ultimately the guardians derive from the city's guardians of traffic and guardians of transportation statues the statues that stand on four pylons on either side of cleveland's hope memorial bridge which connects the eastern and western parts of the city. So of course there's your direct correlation. You got this the guardian statues when it comes to ultimately what they're putting their pillar on. But i mean again you hear the guardians in for better or worse here in twenty twenty one. Everybody goes right to the guardians of the galaxy. I talked to some guys at my job. And he said is this because of the marvel movie like. Why did they do this and everybody else. Posted the jeff's online. I am groot. That was following around but nothing to do with marvel nothing to do with chris brat guardians of the galaxy. It's all about the statues and of course kind of furthermore guardian cleveland. All of that good stuff right but is the top choice of the people of cleveland. Well an nbc affiliate w. kyc t. In cleveland ran themselves a poll and found that twenty seven point seven percent of respondents liked the name cleveland spiders. Which again was a previous baseball team. In the city of cleveland many moons ago and ultimately Some of the front office. In cleveland discussed about why they did not pick the spiders. And we'll get into those reasons here in just a moment but in second place in this poll was the cleveland rockers. Which of course would have celebrated the city being host to the rock and roll hall of fame and then in third place with fifteen point. Five percent of the vote just ahead of some stiff competition in Place number four. Which was the cleveland baseball team. So the guardians in a poll of local. Cleveland did not represent. The guardian says the runaway winner. In fact again they were in third place when it came to ultimately what the city of cleveland wanted a lot of people like the spiders in regards to naming it the team. It was the team a long time ago but again some people in the front office the reasons as to why they didn't pick the spiders. There were some pros and cons. According to the front office on the con side of things you had some teams that struggled on the field. The cleveland spiders were twenty in the one thirty four back in eighteen nineteen in regards to being a performance base nickname so the spiders and performance really didn't correlate the cleveland spiders. Were not that great. So the front office was like add enough. We want to go back to a name where we really struggled with that name itself. But what are the other reasons given was the fact that the spiders hasn't been a major league baseball team in a long time as well as the university of richmond. Spiders it was basically said that it would be difficult to work with agreements of others right so basically branding merchandising. They would have to come to agreements with richmond spiders and they really didn't wanna go through this particular process in basically i'm paraphrasing and reading between the lines here but ultimately again. I think that's hogwash. Humbug when it comes to that. Because i mean if you look at the breakdown right you've got three different types of names when it comes to professional teams..
