Happy Tuesday WFNY! I can already smell the turkey, and the dressing, and the potatoes and gravy, and the ham, and the pie. I love Thanksgiving! It’s truly the best. You get together with family, friends, and loved ones and together you prepare a massive feast and you share in some good food, good conversation,

Five Things Paul Brown Was Not – Reliving Yesteryear

paul_brown-yesteryear-compressor

You know some things to be true. That they may technically only be your opinions is just noise. You’re right, and when others disregard or disbelieve you, a certain amount of frustration builds. At least if you are like me, anyway. Not to mention when you encounter resistance to demonstrable facts. Twenty years ago- when

Cavs vs Nuggets Behind the Box Score: One Step Back

BtBS_2014-15

Denver Nuggets (3-7) 106 Cleveland Cavaliers (5-4) 97 [Box Score] What a dull game. The Cavaliers felt like they were sleepwalking through most of this game. The offense was stagnant and lethargic, and when they got good looks, they were missing the shots. The defense is still atrocious, as the Cavaliers let Denver keep them

Cheaters, Big Hero 6, Snow, and pretty acoustic music… While We’re Waiting

Cleveland Sports

I moved on Thursday. It was also the first big snow of the year here in the Cleveland Metro area, so we had that going for us. As a result I really really pre-wrote this, even compared to normal. Sorry if any of it is dated, but I hope you have a great weekend even

Happy Tuesday WFNY! As I was driving in to work this morning, I was surprised by how light the traffic was. I don’t normally have too much traffic to deal with, as I leave before the worst of it. But even relative to my normal traffic, it was really light this morning. It wasn’t until

New Orleans Pelicans 111 Cleveland Cavaliers 118 [Box Score] On Saturday, the New Orleans Pelicans went to San Antonio and knocked off the defending NBA Champions to move to 3-2 on the season.

Happy Tuesday WFNY! That was some sports weekend we had, eh? Well, I always forget that not all of you are Ohio State fans. So perhaps your sports weekend was dramatically different than mine. My Cleveland sports fan existence has taught me that a win is a win and that I should never dismiss any

An infamous kiss, closing windows, and YIELD: While We’re Waiting…

WWW

Happy Tuesday WFNY! It’s mostly happy, anyway. The Browns remembering how to be the Browns again was awfully frustrating, and pessimistically it was perhaps enlightening. Because really, does anyone know who the real Browns are? This has to be the most bipolar football team I can recall. You have the first halves of the first

Happy Tuesday, WFNY! A 3-2 Tuesday feels pretty good, wouldn’t you say? I’ve been to a lot of Browns games over the years. A…LOT. More than I can count off the top of my head. And for all those games attended, I had only seen the Browns win in the new stadium twice. One was

Happy Tuesday WFNY! It’s always a happy day when the Browns are 1-1. It’s funny how a win can give even fans so much more confidence. I was sure the Browns were going to start the season 0-3. I was completely bleak in the WFNY preview. But today? I’m looking at the upcoming schedule and

Woe are quarterbacks for Ohio teams: While We’re Waiting…

Happy Tuesday WFNY! Why did the Browns even have a QB competition? I found myself thinking about that question this morning. Perhaps a good deal of it is hindsight, in having seen a couple of preseason games now, but Johnny Manziel doesn’t look like a QB who is ready for the NFL right now. Which

Cleveland Indians Closer Doug Jones – Reliving Yesteryear

Mariano Rivera: “Super Mariano.” Aroldis Chapman: “The Cuban Missile.” Mitch Williams: (sing it) “Wild Thing!” (“You-stole-a-Cleve-land thing!”). Doug Jones: “Sultan of Slow”? Yeah.. that’s not really his nickname. Although I don’t suspect he would mind terribly. The unassuming, unlikely star closer for the late 1980s Cleveland Indians never was your stereotypical brash and showy big
