Joe Tait - Voice of the Cleveland Cavaliers

Cavaliers Hall of Fame radio announcer Joe Tait has been resting and receiving treatment for pneumonia since returning home from Houston, where he was hospitalized last week. As Joe continues to recover from pneumonia, he recently underwent a series of tests on his heart at The Cleveland Clinic locally. It has been determined that Joe is experiencing aortic stenosis and will soon undergo procedures on his heart to replace a valve and address other heart related concerns. These procedures will be conducted upon Joe's further recovery from pneumonia.

At this time, no exact timetable has been established for Joe's return to game broadcasts, but he is expected to be out at least through the rest of 2010. Updates on Joe will be provided as appropriate. Joe is in very good spirits and wanted to again thank the fans for their outpouring of support and concern for him during this time and he looks forward to getting back behind the mic as soon as he is able.

While Joe is out, and starting with the Cavaliers home opener on October 27th vs. the Celtics at Quicken Loans Arena, the Cavaliers radio broadcast team will have WTAM Sports Director and current Cavaliers radio network pre and post game host Mike Snyder doing play by play. Mike will be joined on all broadcasts by Cavaliers Legend and current Cavaliers post game show analyst Jim Chones for game commentary.

Best wishes go out to Joe from the entire Cavaliers family for a full recovery and return to game broadcasts when he is ready.

Eddie Munster

Butch Patrick may be 57 years old now, but he'll always be Eddie Munster, the only son of Herman and Lily Munster on the mid-1960s television classic "The Munsters."

Considering what many of the child TV stars now look like, I think he's aged pretty well.

Check it out.

Sure it's an Apple laptop

The Apple marketing machine is so good that it has inspired some, uh, creative thinking.

The best thing about this laptop is that it runs Windows natively - and there's a snack available at any time.

Most visited Ethnic Groups

Sometimes I am surprised after running monthly web reports for ClevelandPeople.Com. There are 117 different ethnic groups in Cleveland but some are very small. We cover about 85 or so at ClevelandPeople.Com right now.

I always expect that the groups with the largest population will be the most visited - German, African-American, Puerto Rican, Polish, Irish, Italian, etc.

But often the most visited groups are much smaller - Korean, Ethiopian, Jamaican, Liberian, Latvian, Estonian and so on.

Maybe the larger groups have a lot of choices on what pages to visit and there are fewer for the smaller groups.

September was a more traditional month, The Top 5 groups most visited were Hungarian, Irish, Korean, Chinese and Asian-Indian
