Dissecting Dan Gilbert, While We’re Waiting

Happy Tuesday everyone! I know everyone hates hearing about other people’s fantasy teams, and I’m not going to try to bore you with too many details. But three weeks ago my team was in 11th place (out of 12). I had high hopes for my team this year, but it just absolutely sputtered out of

A Couple Tribe Fans Share Their ‘Brush With Greatness’: Reliving Yesteryear

Do you have a story? A Cleveland Indians ‘brush with greatness’? Such a story may involve a well-known player, although this is not a necessity. My buddy Paul shared one. “So, we’re sitting there with all this gear he signed for us. Balls, photos… and a large orange poster we’d made for him, for the

WFNY’s State of the Browns: RBs and FBs

NFL: Tennessee Titans at Houston Texans

The next positions that will be examined in our series, State of the Browns, are the running backs and fullbacks.

Happy Tuesday folks! I had a weird thought this weekend as the calendar turned to June already. I realized that we are basically a month away from the 4th of July, which I always consider the halfway point of summer. Because after the 4th, it’s just a month until August, which means the start of

Hope everyone had an awesome Memorial Weekend. I spent most of mine with family enjoying copious amounts of food cooked on a grill. Other than watching a bit of the NBA Playoff games, I really didn’t see too much sports news this weekend and I didn’t get back into town until later last night, so

Unsolicited observations: Cleaning up Santana’s swoon, Jesus is here, Bourn problems and more

Carlos Santana - Dejak AP

These observations may be unsolicited, but it probably doesn’t take much to get an opinion from Tribe fans on the play of Carlos Santana. The Indians’ unexpected third baseman managed to get his OPS back over .600. In the stat world, we call that trending upward! One can hope, anyway. Watching Santana at the plate

There’s a degree of order in life. Certain things fit together in ways that make sense. There are laws of math, and physics, and biology. Unbreakable truths.

Good riddance, Cavs season: While We’re Waiting

WFNYBanner www

Yet another uninspired crawl to the finish. We shouldn’t be surprised. This isn’t unique to the Cavaliers, necessarily. Teams in April playoff chases who get eliminated often coast to the end of the season. But just because it’s not surprising, it doesn’t make the end of this Cavaliers season any less disappointing. Above all else,

Cavs vs Pistons Behind the Box Score: Trees falling without making a sound

Don’t get me wrong…that was a fun game. The Cavaliers played some of the best team basketball we’ve seen this group play as they came out and just crushed the Pistons 122-100. But as fun as it was, it unfortunately didn’t matter. The Pistons quit a long time ago. They’re the same team who played

Talk about a boring game. But boring in the best way ever. The Cavaliers were ready to play from the start in this one, and they never let up as they absolutely crushed the Magic by a 119-98 score. This one had a little bit of everything and everyone. Kyrie Irving came back and played

The Cavaliers were on the road, playing the second night of a back-to-back. For the first three quarters the team more or less played like it.
