So about that open WFNY Indians writer position…

branyan_stretch

I swear I meant to get to this sooner than the gosh-darn beginning of Spring Training, but life kept getting in the way.  Which, come to think of it, is kind of the point… When I joined WFNY five years ago (FIVE YEARS AGO), I didn’t really know what I wanted to do. I mean that

The Sour Sixteen: Ranking Cleveland’s Sports Rivals

Pittsburgh Steelers Fans

When Will Leitch posted his article last week at Sports on Earth listing each MLB team’s three greatest rivals and it came across my screen, it got me thinking. When I asked myself who were the Indians’ three greatest rivals, I had to think about it. It also got me thinking about how I would

Renting a Team

Super Bowl XLIX

Since the Cleveland Browns did not make the Super Bowl once again, I have decided to choose a temporary rooting interest in the “big game” on Sunday. It’s not an easy call. Neither team is especially likeable from a Clevelander’s perspective: Seattle is the reigning (more like “raining” am I right?) champs and New England already

On Love and the Cavaliers

Cavs Heart

This is sort of about basketball, but mostly about not basketball. Dion Waiters and the Oklahoma City Thunder played against the Cavaliers in Cleveland on Sunday. Waiters was unsurprisingly and unwarrantedly booed, which feels approximately appropriate given his Philadelphia upbringing. Dion has talked some mess since being traded and ruffled some feathers long before that,

Board Game Review – Survive: Escape from Atlantis

Survive Atlantis

The island is sinking all around you. In the water are sharks and sea monsters that are after you. Grab a spot in a lifeboat and paddle towards the closest beach, but watch out for whales- they capsize your boat and then you are a swimmer. Theme: Tropical island survival Number of Players: 2-4 (more interesting with

Deflated footballs, common sense and sadness

NFL Replica Ball

I got into a long discussion on Facebook regarding this whole New England Patriots football deflation story with a Pats fan. That’s not the way to talk about this. Pats fans, like any fans who find themselves in situations like this, are the last ones you truly want to talk to because they’re so invested. Instead of

Board Game Review: Carcassonne

carcassonne

Carcassonne is an award-winning new classic. It is the game that introduced the world to the meeple, a wooden figure that has become an industry standard. The game was first published in 2000, but is just as strong a seller today. Named after a city in France, Carcassonne is a Euro-game that is simple but

Ohio Statement

script.ohio

Bartenders were shooing patrons out of the uptown Dallas bar as a group of people in the corner drunkenly belted out Carmen Ohio with a fraction of the grace with which Cie Grant sings it. In the corner, I sipped the remnants of my beverage in the midst of a game of Big Buck Hunter

Craig’s Top Ten Movies of 2014

boxtrolls-min

I may not have been as much of a completist as I’ve been in years past with my movie watching. Still, I counted up as many movies as I could remember seeing this year, that also came out in 2014, and I think I saw 28 films. I certainly didn’t see everything I should have

Stuart Scott and the fight against cynicism

Stu-Scott-compressor

Stuart Scott passed away from the cancer that he fought so valiantly for years. It’s sad just like it would be sad when any 49-year old leaves behind a family which will never be able to replace their husband and father. But for the sports world and my generation of sports fans, it’s sad that

The WFNY Sportsman of 2014: LeBron James

LeBron James Cleveland Cavaliers Tickets

Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year is an annual must-read. Sadly, that the national recognition rarely has anything to do with the teams or individuals whom we cover. In turn, WFNY will soon announce its choice for 2014’s Cleveland Sportsman of the Year. Here’s one of the nominations for that honor by an WFNY writer.

Minnesota Timberwolves v. Cleveland Cavaliers: Behind the Box Score

Cleveland Cavaliers Behind the Box Score.

Minnesota Timberwolves (5-22) 104 Cleveland Cavaliers (17-10) 125 Box Score It was hard to have feelings of remorse after the Cleveland Cavaliers trounced the Minnesota Timberwolves 125-104 in what will hopefully become a vintage 2014-15 Cavaliers performance. There’s an urban legend among the professional basketball-averse that there are only a few good teams in the

Holiday Movies

It’s that time of year again. With only a handful of days remaining in the year, people all throughout The Land are scrambling to find the time to wrap gifts (or for many, think of, complain about, shop for, buy, then wrap gifts) to give to our loved ones. Sure, you tell them you love
