One of my favorite Waiting For Next Year traditions is the annual Thanksgiving post. Each year, we ask all of the writers to share what they are thankful for in the past year. It could be sports related (it usually is because we’re all sports bloggers). It might not be sports related, as we pour

Jim Brennan’s Colony, and the community that fosters Cleveland sports fandom: While We’re Waiting

It’s been almost two years since I posted at WFNY regularly, but when Jacob asked if I could fill in for him on WWW a couple days ago, I said “yes” without really thinking about it. And, well, maybe I should have thought a bit more about my ability to authoritatively write about Cleveland sports,

New WFNY shirt designs available now!

Wine and Gold design

When we introduced the first run of WFNY shirts from GV Art and Design, we really didn’t know what to expect. It was a little scary ordering all of those shirts without having a clue if anyone would actually want them. Well, we knew we could give some away, but we were pretty unsure if

“Cursed” Cleveland Sports Might Get a Documentary

I was checking out Scene Magazine’s website this morning and I saw a post about a new documentary seeking funding via Kickstarter.  Of course the movie is set to be called Cursed.  What else could you possibly call a movie about Cleveland sports?  Ugh.

Cleveland Athlete Twitter Tourney: The Finals

We must say goodbye to rookies Carlton Mitchell (who was at least good enough to chat with us) and Joe Haden who were up against stiff competition in the semi-finals. And so it has come down to two. The overwhelming favorite- Josh Cribbs and the Cavaliers top guard Mo Williams will now compete head-to-head for

Cleveland Athlete Twitter Tourney: Final 4

Two days of voting down. We’ve whittled our field of 16 down to 4. Two very close races yesterday. Mo Williams edged Eric Wright by a narrow margin (perhaps vindication for my original top ten?) and Shaun Rogers gave rookie WR Carlton Mitchell a run for his money. Over 1,300 votes were cast propelling our

Top Ten Cleveland Sports Twitter Accounts

A few things before we get to the list. This started out to be a top ten Cleveland Athletes list, but as I dug into it, I realized that there is a severe lack of really interesting twitter accounts in our pro sports teams. The top few are very good, but outside of that, not
