LeBron James Gets Angry Letter From Cleveland Cavaliers Owner in Comic Sans

Do or Don't: Cavs Owner's Letter to LeBron in Comic Sans

As soon as font options were introduced to AOL, it was the font I chose. It's still the font with which my mother writes emails (signed with an emoticon smiley face), but the chosen font for one of the most-read posts on the Internet? What? Yesterday, after LeBron James announced which NBA team he'll be playing for, the owner of the Cavaliers posted a serious, angry open letter to fans, denouncing the player's decision and promising to bring a championship to Cleveland.

The problem? The letter was posted completely in the Comic Sans font. And despite the angry message the letter contained, the font almost made it laughable. The Cavs owner's font choice quickly made it into a trending topic on Twitter, and blogs picked up the story, calling Comic Sans, "a staple among six year old and grandmothers." Now that all of the hype surrounding "The Decision" is subsiding, do you agree that the font choice looks a little silly? Or is everyone making a big deal out of nothing?
