It's a good time to be a Cleveland fan.

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Lake Erie Monsters have reached the NBA Finals and Calder Cup Finals, respectively, making for an interesting couple of weeks in Cleveland sports.

Yes, Dawgs By Nature is a Browns site, but Browns fans can live vicariously through the Cavs and Monsters for the next couple of weeks.

The Cavs will play the Golden State Warriors in the Finals, beginning with Game One in the Bay Area on Thursday. The rematch from last year should be exciting to watch.

For full coverage, including how the Cavs can beat the Warriors, follow our friends at Fear the Sword.

Here's the full schedule for the NBA Finals.

Beginning on Wednesday, the Lake Erie Monsters face the Hershey Bears in the Calder Cup Finals. Sure, the Monsters are just the AHL affiliate of the NHL's Columbus Blue Jackets. But that doesn't make it any less exciting.

The Monsters have enjoyed a run similar to the Cavs, rolling to an 11-2 postseason record. Lake Erie is a young team guided by exciting prospects such as red-hot goaltender Anton Forsberg and defender Zach Werenski.

For full coverage of the Monsters, including a series preview, follow our friends at The Cannon, SB Nation's Blue Jackets site.

Here's the full schedule for the Calder Cup Finals:

How about that? Eight games in 11 days, including four games in six days at The Q.
