Customers Line Up for 23 Cent Pizza

Customers in Ohio waited as long as 2 1/2 hours for cheap pizza as Papa John's made good on its apology to Cleveland Cavaliers fans. Eighty-six stores in Cleveland, Columbus, Toledo and Youngstown sold large, one-topping pizzas for 23 cents Thursday. The company agreed to the deal after a franchisee in Washington, D.C., made T-shirts calling LeBron James a "crybaby." The shirts referred to James' complaints about hard fouls during a playoff series with the Washington Wizards. The 23-cent price of a pizza was an homage to James' jersey number.
