Good afternoon, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you make sure there aren't any cops around before you drop your pants.

— The Cavs invite you to try out for their D-League affiliate, because you actually might be better than the 12th man on their bench. (

— Not groundbreaking in any way, and NewsNet5 adds some scary and most definitely incorrect "Hoarding is spreading!!!?OMGZZZ It's spreading!" rhetoric, but we can't pass up a good video of extreme hoarding. (NewsNet5)

— One in 8 bridges in Cuyahoga County need repairs. (WKYC)

— You shouldn't urinate in the middle of a restaurant, but if you do, make sure a cop isn't watching you. (Westlake Patch)
