London Fletcher celebrates Cleveland's first championship since 1964

Cleveland got to celebrate its first pro sports title since 1964 thanks to LeBron James. Northeast Ohio's London Fletcher wasn't about to miss out.

London Fletcher spent the final seven years of his NFL career in Washington after five in Buffalo and four with St. Louis.

Before that, Fletcher was born in Cleveland on May 19, 1975 -- or 11 years after the Northeast Ohio city experienced its last championship by a major professional sports team. 

That means the linebacker lived a full 41 years without getting to celebrate the way every other city with at least three teams from the NFL, MLB, NHL and NBA. That is until Sunday night as the Cleveland Cavaliers completed a historic rally for a NBA Finals win over the Golden State Warriors. As LeBron James and Kyrie Irving fueled Cleveland's third straight win and second straight at Golden State, Fletcher watched the action from inside Oracle Arena.

Yeah, he was kind of happy.

Good for Fletcher and all the long-suffering Cleveland fans.

Also in the building, Redskins tight end Vernon Davis

The former San Francisco 49ers tight end seems happy in the picture. Based on his t-shirt color of choice, guessing that smile turned upside down.
