Cleveland's jock

Over the years, some pretty terrible things have happened in and to the city of Cleveland, Ohio: the Cuyahoga River catching on fire and a downright tragicomic sports history come immediately to mind. Stand-up comedians since the '50s have treated Cleveland as their personal punching bag. Regardless of the fact that most of the jokes are at least slightly rooted in truth, the folks who live there are understandably sick of it all, and who can blame them? People bagging on your hometown gets old, especially when it comes from people who don't even live there and they're bringing up stuff that happened decades ago. One organization in particular, Cleveland's convention and visitors bureau, known as Positively Cleveland, is aggressively defending and promoting Cleveland's image and positive attributes. How aggressively? Well, just feast your inner Beavis and Butthead on their logo... 

Consult a doctor if your civic pride lasts for more than 4 hours
Obviously, they are very excited about all the the great things their city has to offer!

Envious?

Without a doubt. None of the letters in "Tampa Bay" are suitable for creating a logo like that.
