Happy Wednesday, Blawg Pound. The Cleveland Indians baseball club sure played a game last night in Boston.

LeBron James is the best basketball player on the planet, but the four-time MVP was also one hell of a football player back in his high school days.

LaRon Byrd was cut by the Dallas Cowboys and claimed by the Cleveland Browns. So what’s the big deal about a 25-year-old who went undrafted from the University of Miami in 2012? Maybe nothing. Then again, Byrd is big at 6-foot-4 and he has speed. He also has a propensity to work with the JUGS machine

Dez Bryant is a great receiver and it’s in his best interest to pump up anyone who has the potential of throwing him a football in the NFL, but this is ridiculous.

Well, that didn’t take long. Good ole’ Brandon Weeden, everyone’s favorite whipping boy here in Cleveland during his two year stint as Quarterback, has officially found a new home.

In my experience, Dallas Cowboys fans have some consternation with regard to Tony Romo. In Romo, they’ve got a guy with some clear ability and talent, but he never seems to put them over the top. Romo is nearing his mid-30’s now as an NFL player and makes a ton of money and it’s reasonable
