Characters of Cleveland
The wrap sheet on the most notable and outrageous characters of the Cleveland social scene.
Cleveland Fame. No, this isn't for Drew Carey or Halle Berry. It's for a select group of individuals who made a name for themselves on the swanky social scene in Cleveland, Ohio. The one's you have surely seen before if you've been out & about in C-town in the past 20 years. Without further ado:
Claim to Fame: Outrageous clothing, LED belt, large stature, ambiguous backstory & of course hanging out at local malls, sporting events & night clubs regularly.
Greatest Accomplishment: Been in the newspaper, twice.
Super Pimp (aka Money Mike)
Claim to Fame: Clubbing in snazzy suits accompanied by loud ties/handkerchiefs & a mustache that's a cross between the pencil, the copstache & the super mario.
Greatest Accomplishment: Middle-aged, average looking male adored by club-going 20-something females... that's why they call him Super Pimp, folks.
Claim to Fame: Playing "Take me out to the Ballgame" (amongst other classics) for fans walking into Jacobs Field.
Greatest Accomplishment: Pumping fans up with his classic sax tunes prior to Game 4 of the 1997 World Series – propelling the Indians to tie the series (had nothing to do with Jaret Wright or Manny Ramirez).
