Forget rings — how do you feel about free ice cream, Cleveland?

Tuesday is scheduled to be a big day in The Land, as the Cleveland Indians host Game 1 of the World Series, while just a few dozen feet away, the Cleveland Cavaliers open their season and receive their 2015-16 Championship rings.

As our own Steve Aschburner recently wrote, LeBron James jokingly suggested the only way to make the evening better might be to have free ice cream available outside both stadiums.

“I don’t know, having an ice cream truck outside of both arenas at the same time as well — the icing on the cake,” James quipped following the Cavaliers’ practice Thursday afternoon. “It’s great.
