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


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


Cavs vs Pistons Behind the Box Score: A game-winner for Dion


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. The Cavaliers fell down by 16 points and it looked like that would pretty much be it. But the Cavaliers got a surprise offensive explosion from Matthew Dellavedova, Anderson


Casual Friday podcast talking cities and stadiums and The Long Winters – WFNY Podcast – 2013-12-06

WFNY Podcast Logo

This week’s casual Friday Podcast with Denny was a lot of talk about Cleveland and it’s development. We talked about the land bridge from at the Horseshoe casino and also the city’s deal with the stadium. Hanging out in downtown Indianapolis for Thanksgiving Not traveling with a pregnant wife Spatchcocking a turkey How big a


Thoughts on the Cleveland-Detroit rivalry


Pittsburgh gets most of the sports hate in this town thanks to the Steelers, but 2.5 hours the other direction sits Detroit, a city that collectively may be Cleveland’s biggest rival. With Detroit sitting across the border in that state up North, it’s reason enough for Northeast Ohioans to harbor some hatred, but throw in


Box Score: Cavaliers 79, Pistons 89

You knew this game would be tough to win, with the Cavaliers starting backcourt out with injuries and the Pistons playing good basketball as of late. For a while, that’s exactly what happened, with the Cavaliers falling behind by 20 points in the first half and trailing by 17 at the half. In the 4th


Morosi: Cleveland Indians Scouting Matt Garza

There’s still time before the Major League Baseball trade deadline comes, but that’s not stopping teams from trying to make impact moves prior to the All-Star Break. While there’s no doubt the Cleveland Indians could really use a right handed bat, they’ve already seen potential targets such as Kevin Youkilis and Carlose Lee traded to


Box Score: Cavaliers 77, Pistons 116

If you can’t something nice, don’t say anything at all. I should adhere to that advice right now. I haven’t been this frustrated with a Cavaliers game since Game 5 of that infamous Celtics series. But a shout out to Antawn Jamison for the 0-10 night from the field. Pretty impressive. Cavaliers play again tomorrow.


Will Cavaliers and Pistons Try To Out-Tank Each Other Tonight?

Manny Harris

A couple weeks back, when I first addressed the concept of “tanking” to point out that the Cleveland Cavaliers (20-39, 13th in the East) were entering a stretch of brutal games with key players injured, I wrote that I felt the worst (or best, I guess, depending on your point of view) the Cavaliers could


Box Score: Pistons 87, Cavaliers 75

That was….better? The Cavaliers at least defended better and Kyrie Irving was really aggressive in trying to top Brandon Knight. But beyond that, the Cavaliers offense was pretty horrible in this game and the Pistons more or less were able to just coast to victory. Alonzo Gee was simply destroyed by Tayshaun Prince in this


Cavaliers vs Pistons: Let the Tanking Begin!


Welcome to Tank Fest 2012! Ok, so no, I don’t think the Cleveland Cavaliers (17-30, 10th in the East) are actually tanking. Or, shall I say, losing on purpose. I believe Byron Scott is trying to get his team to play well, and I believe the players are (mostly) trying their hardest to win. But


Vikings Handle Their Business, Now Just Two Wins Away From the Big Dance

Tre Harmon

When we last left our Cleveland State Vikings, they were losers of five straight. This reeling bunch, which once stared down the Horizon League title and then fell completely off the table, had two games left to make things somewhat right. On Thursday night, they faced a pseudo-double bye chance elimination game with Detroit (sporting


Box Score: Pistons 100, Cavaliers 101

Fascinating game. Kyrie Irving and the rest of the Cavaliers not named Antawn Jamison were sleep walking through 3 quarters. But in the 4th quarter, Kyrie Irving and Alonzo Gee took over this game. The Cavaliers outscored the Pistons 35-23 in the 4th quarter to pull out a nice comeback win. I remember plenty of


Cavaliers’ Rematch with Pistons An Important One

Samardo punished the Pistons frontcourt last game

Welcome back Manny Harris! Forget all the other story lines, the big news in this game is the return of Manny Harris to the wine and gold, right? Right? Basketball is funny. I don’t know why, but there always marginal players out there who become my guys. They come in different shapes and sizes, but


Cavaliers Look To Bounce Back Against the Pistons

Game One for the Cleveland Cavaliers was one to forget. Wednesday night, the Cavaliers (0-1) head up to the Palace to take on the Detroit Pistons (0-1) in the battle of the Central Division’s two winless teams. There were plenty of eye opening issues with the Cavaliers in Game One. The first, and most obvious


Buckeyes beat a bad team and Cleveland State gets conference win over Detroit

Ohio State played the University of Texas Pan-American today.  The Broncs, as opposed to the Broncos, are not a good basketball team. After beating Victory University in late November by 19 points, the school first founded in 1927 as Edinburgh College has now fallen all the way to 2-7 on this 2011-12 season.  But enough


92.3 FM Switching to Sports in Cleveland?

With the failed Digital Sports Network (DSN) so recently in our memories, there is a rumor floating around that 92.3 FM in Cleveland could have its format flipped by CBS radio into a sports talk channel.  There was one thing that DSN taught us for sure and that is that there is demand for choices

Cavaliers Preview Game #15: Cavs at Pistons

Cleveland Cavaliers (10-4) vs Detroit Pistons (5-9) The Palace of Auburn Hills, Detroit, MI Wednesday, November 24, 2009 8:00 PM EST FSOH/WTAM Earlier this season the Cavaliers had 4 games in 5 nights, and then had 4 days off. They came out that next week and played solid games against Orlando, Miami, and Utah. Now,


Pistons Offer No Resistance As Cavaliers Advance

The good news for the Cleveland Cavaliers is that they now have nothing but time on their hands as they sit back, relax, and wait to see whether Miami or Atlanta is coming to town next. The reason for this is that with their 99-78 dismantling of the Detroit Pistons on Sunday, the Cavaliers have
