I‘m not good at many things. I never had the hand-eye coordination, athleticism, or toughness to thrive at sports, and lacked the attention span, threshold for boredom, and determination to become proficient at any hobby that could be construed as a “talent.” Had I ever participated in a talent show, it would have just been me
Happy Thursday, folks. The Browns have yet to lose this year, the Cavs are verging on an NBA2K roster, and even the un-clutch Indians managed to get a few hits with runners in scoring position on Wednesday — killing a unicorn with each brief brush with the unreality. Before we dive into the nonsense, there’s
It wasn’t always this good. LeBron James is deeply committing to the Cleveland Cavaliers for the foreseeable future — in one year stints, anyway — thanking the City of Cleveland for its support after carrying its basketball franchise to the brink of a championship, praising the city on national talk shows, bringing movie premieres to
Happy Tuesday, WFNY! Man, what a crazy year this has been in terms of the weather. I know not everyone who reads this lives in NE Ohio. That’s ok, I don’t live there either. But I always assume the weather in Cleveland is more or less the same as it is here in Columbus. And,
Continuing his promotion of the Judd Apatow-directed comedy Trainwreck, Cleveland Cavaliers star small forward/power forward/guard/center/executive LeBron James appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night. His promotional tour has already taken him to a premiere in Akron last Friday, and to the 330’s best drive-in burger joint to have Galley Boys and banana
Welcome to this 2015 Midsummer Cleveland Sports eBay Items Edition of the WFNYS! This awards presentation was loosely inspired by an array of things: 1. The ESPYS, ESPN’s version of the Oscars for sports that’s largely redundant because, you know, sports are largely a months-long ceremony to give an award to the best team, air
Before attending a hometown premiere of Trainwreck in Montrose, LeBron James took his director and co-stars to the 330 fast food staple Swenson’s. An hour or so before appearing to greet the hundreds of fans waiting for a rare glimpse of movie stars in that part of Northeast Ohio, James — starring as himself in the comedy opening in theaters
Happy Thursday, dudes and ladydudes of Cleveland. I’m feeling unusually terse today. Normally anything as slight as Slider’s bare chest can coax a couple thousand words out of me, but not today. The Browns are in a relatively non-controversial offseason of Project Rebuild: Year 17, the boil of NBA free agency is starting to subside,
With the way their season ended in mid-June — within a few lucky bounces and a bad performance from healthy eventual champion Golden State Warriors — it’s hard to remember where the Cleveland Cavaliers were in early January. That “where” was a bad psychological place, the figurative equivalent of the dark and foreboding forest through which you
Happy Tuesday WFNY! All in all, I’d say it’s been a pretty solid week since last Tuesday. Kevin Love agreed to return, Iman Shumpert is locked up, and now even Mo Williams is back! I don’t really know what to make of this return from Mo. On the one hand, from a purely sentimental aspect,
One of my running jokes throughout the Cleveland Cavaliers’ season, which was rife with melodrama both real and manufactured, was that the Cavaliers were starring in a soap opera called As the Cavs Turn. On a team with LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Love, everything was viewed as newsworthy. Was Kevin Love fitting “in” or “out”?
Happy Tuesday WFNY! Tonight is a big night for the NBA. Or, well, I guess it’s technically tomorrow? I don’t know. However you want to look at it, at 12:01 am tonight/tomorrow morning, NBA free agency officially kicks off. Last year was a pretty nervous time for a lot of Cavs fans. Even right up
Happy Thursday, Cleveland, Ohio (original); Cleveland, Austin, Texas; Cleveland, Chicago, Illinois; Cleveland, Mexico; and Cleveland, Wherever the Hell You Live (not to be confused with Cleveland, Alabama, which has no figurative connection to Cleveland, Ohio).1 May your day be wonderful and full of Ws. Continue to colonize the earth in the name of Cleveland. (We’re
Happy Tuesday WFNY! What do you guys want to talk about today? The NBA season is officially over, now. And to be honest, I’m not in much of a mood to rehash the season right now. It was a great season, and it was so much fun watching this team grow and build something together.
There was only one way it could ever end. From the moment the playoffs began, the stakes were as high as could be: this wasn’t going to be as meaningless as something like ending world poverty or brain surgery, this was sports.1 And the possible outcomes were binary for the City of Cleveland: Either the Cavaliers
The Cavaliers fell short of the NBA Championship and that’s sad, but overall it was a good season. You’d think that once the shock of it all being over wears off, there would be mostly good things to say. In their post-season media availability, David Griffin bemoaned the lack of a positive narrative as he
Happy Tuesday WFNY! It’s happy for now, anyway. But will it still be a happy Tuesday later this evening? Is anyone else having a hard time focusing on or thinking about anything other than this Finals series? Man, this series has only been five games so far, and I’m already completely fried. Emotionally, physically, spiritually.
It started the minute we stepped onto the L train from Midway. It was hot. Cramped. My friends and I piled into the overly crowded car, suitcases in hand. Hanger (that’s hunger-induced anger) was setting in, and patience was wearing thin. A man in Spongebob swimtrunks and mismatched socks noticed my friend’s blue and orange
Cleveland Cavaliers – 91 Golden State Warriors – 104 Golden State leads series 3-2 Box Score Alright, deep breaths everyone. If this plane’s going down, it’s going down. Freaking out and blaming all of the other passengers won’t prevent the plane from going down; nor will accusing them of secretly hoping the plane goes down.
Golden State Warriors – 103 Cleveland Cavaliers – 82 NBA Finals tied 2-2 Box Score Well that wasn’t as fun as Tuesday’s game, was it? After an incredible team effort and rambunctious crowd blasted the Cavaliers to interstellar heights after a Game 3 victory to take a 2-1 series lead over the Warriors, they came
