From his penchant for Indians’ gear to the public effort to have him throw out the first pitch at this year’s home opener, there’s a lot of two-way love between walking headline Charlie Sheen and Northeast Ohio. Ricky Vaughn will forever be a hero in this land, and Sheen seems to know it.

When the cultural icon dragged himself away from his quote-generating, crack-smoking, porn-filled nose-dive to fill out a March Madness bracket, he sided with us locals.
Sheen wrote up his picks at the Dan Patrick Show and has Akron going all the way . . . or I guess it would be more appropriate here to say: winning the whole thing.
