Fantastic job on this letter to Jimmy Haslam- “6. Bob Feller was an Indians icon. His statue is in front of the Jake. The Jacobs sold and the rights and it is now Progressive Field. People still call it the Jake, so I don’t know how effective of a purchase it was for Progressive.
7. The only way to eat a hot dog is with stadium mustard. Either Bertmans or the stand by, Stadium Mustard will work, but if you like yellow mustard on a hot dog, only do so in private. Trust me, you don’t want to be answering questions about mustard for the next year.” [Happiness is a Hot Pierogi]
“While there is no way that Miles will continue to shoot this well throughout the season – he made only 38% of his shots last season and his shooting has declined each of the past five seasons – Miles is showing that he can be a legitimate offensive option when he is on the court. The Cavs need Miles to pick up some of the slack created by the departure of Antawn Jamison and his 17.2 points (and 16.1 shots) per game.
On media day, I asked Miles if he expected to start this season, and Miles said that he was just hoping for a chance to compete for that spot. Miles has started every game of the preseason so far, and it seems like he will find himself in the starting lineup on opening night, whether as the starting shooting guard or at small forward.” [Curry/Cavs HQ]
As good a recap of the VIPs at Browns camp yesterday as any. [Farrar/Shutdown Corner]
“The Browns are going to be new. Again. And after the last cycle(s) of major changes brought the on-field product closer to its expansion-team roots than to where it needs to be to compete among the NFL’s elite, it’s fair to point out that we’ve heard these promises of change and prosperity before.
Browns fans, though, are very familiar with what it’s like to hope, to hold onto hope and maybe even have nothing but hope. They really hope this time is different.” [Jackson/FSO]
Two WFNY posts I want to be sure you got to see. The first is from the weekend- Jacob’s piece on the playoff teams and where the Indians failed. The second is yesterday’s podcast with Craig and Jon.
