“So why are you here?” “I’m here for the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference.” “What’s that?” “It’s this annual sports analytics conference. It’s been happening for eight years. It was at Hynes this year; there were 2,000 attendees. It’s kind of a big deal. It had 2,700 attendees last year.” “So it dropped?” “Well, yeah. It
We showed Will Leitch around when he was in Cleveland and now I got him to come talk on the podcast. This was scheduled for a while, and it was just dumb luck that there was something big like the Trent Richardson trade to talk about. The USMNT and the hipster patriotism Lee Greenwood and
At the end of this podcast we talked a bit about Jon’s post about the Boston Marathon. Jason Giambi and his lead-off homer as an Indian Giambi’s double bird Joe Haden and the Yahoo! reported financial scam Kareem Abdul Jabbar and his diving show appearance Pensions and retirement vehicles Being trained to be a cog
Boston came into this game hurting. Losers of 3 straight, the Celtics surely looked at this game in Cleveland as a prime opportunity to get things back on track. Kyrie Irving had other ideas. “Mr 4th Quarter” disguised himself as “Mr 1st Quarter” in this one as he came out looking to make a statement
Anderson Varejao missed this game due to a knee injury and without his services the Celtics were simply too much for the Cavaliers to contend with. This one looked like a blowout with the Celtics opening up a 20 point lead in the 3rd quarter. However, the Cavaliers went on a nice 20-2 run to
Tough loss. The Cavaliers fell behind early as their first quarter defense continues to plague them. But true to their nature, the Cavaliers fought back and took a lead into the 4th quarter. Unfortunately, the Cavs made too many mental errors down the stretch and the Celtics capitalized. The Cavaliers had a chance, down 3
The Cleveland Cavaliers (13-18, 9th in the East) get back to business Tuesday night when they welcome the Boston Celtics (15-17, 8th in the East) into the Q. It was a pretty good All Star break for Cleveland. Sure, Kyrie Irving didn’t fare so well in the Skills Competition, but Irving and fellow rookie Tristan
Bummer. The Cavaliers were down 18 points heading into the 4th quarter, and then went on a crazy run to close within 2 points. In the end, though, they just didn’t quite have enough to overcome the hole they dug. On one hand, the Cavs showed a lot of pride in not giving up and
Boston Celtics (12-4) vs Cleveland Cavaliers (7-9) Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland, OH Tuesday, November 30, 2010 7:00 PM EST FSOH/WTAM Nobody is looking ahead to Thursday and everyone is focused on tonight’s game against the Celtics, right? I hope not. While it’s easy to understand the anticipation with Thursday’s homecoming game looming, this game tonight
Ok, lets get the excuses out of the way first. The Boston Celtics were tired from playing such an emotionally charged game the night before. The Celtics age is going to hurt them in road ends of back-to-backs all year. They overlooked the Cavaliers and didn’t give the same focus and effort they gave at
Boston Celtics (1-0) vs Cleveland Cavaliers (0-0) Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland, OH Wednesday, October 27, 2010 7:00 PM EST FSOH/WTAM The Cleveland Cavaliers begin a new journey tonight. Although the result of their path is as unclear as I can ever recall it being, just having the ability to begin down the path brings excitement.
Warning, there are a few not-so-safe-for-work words thrown in this video: We are born with a chance Rise above We’re gonna rise above I am gonna have my chance Rise above We’re gonna rise above We are tired of your abuse Try to stop us it’s no use –Black Flag – “Rise Above” Back in
…… I’ve been staring at my laptop for about 25 minutes now trying to figure out where to start with this one. One of the most pathetic efforts I have ever seen a Cleveland team put forth. It’s even more stunning to see the superstar we all pinned our hopes on come and out APPEAR
This is not a Game Five preview. At least, not in the traditional sense. Instead, this is a more broad look into what exactly Game Five means in the more big picture sense of this series. This has been a tough week for Cavs fans. For many, this was not your shining moment in sports
The Cleveland Cavaliers not-so-easily dispatched of the Chicago Bulls in the first round of the playoffs in 5 games and now are gearing up for a matchup fans have been waiting for. Ever since Paul Pierce dueled with LeBron James in that infamous Game 7 two seasons ago, Cavs fans (and presumably LeBron himself) have
Cleveland Cavaliers (44-14) vs Boston Celtics (36-19) TD Banknorth Garden, Boston, MA Thursday, February 25, 2010 8:00 PM EST TNT/WTAM After finally snapping that 3 game losing streak, the Cavaliers must now turn their attention to the rival Boston Celtics. Both teams come into this game relatively fresh as each had last night off. This
Boston Celtics (0-0) vs Cleveland Cavaliers (0-0) Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland, OH Tuesday, October 27, 2009 7:30 PM EST TNT/WTAM Here we are once more. Back for another season of NBA basketball, and tonight the Cleveland Cavaliers look to pick up where they left off last season at home. After going 39-2 at the Q
Fourteen cities were up for consideration, but only three cities remain. The hosting city for the 2014 Gay Games will come down to Washington D.C., Boston and Cleveland.
Cleveland Cavaliers (48-12) vs Boston Celtics (48-14) TD Banknorth Garden, Boston, MA Friday, March 6, 2009 8:00 PM EST ESPN/FSNOH/WTAM In a game of this magnitude, writing an introduction to this preview feels a little superfluous. After all, I think it’s safe to assume most of you know what this game means and what’s on
Celtics at Cavaliers. Eastern Conference’s top 2 teams. It doesn’t get any better than this. Join us tonight as we will be live blogging the festivities.
