WFNY_roundtable

  Here at WFNY, some of our best post ideas come from our daily email conversations. In the spirit of openness, we wanted our readers to get a sample of what one of these banter sessions look like. Craig sparked an idea about Barkevious Mingo and whether or not he has met our expectations. Normally these

WFNY Curates: Top Albums of All Time

WFNY Podcast Logo

In the latest of our episodes discussing music, Craig and Andrew decided to take some time to talk about our favorite albums of all time. As always, these are just our own personal picks and not so much a declaration of the universal best albums of all time. With that in mind, we thus implore

WFNY Podcast – 2013-03-01 Craig and Andrew Discuss MIT Sloan Conference, Dion Waiters, and more

WFNY Podcast Logo

Craig is in Boston this weekend for the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, but that didn’t stop him from calling me up for another podcast episode. Admittedly, I like most of my fellow WFNY writers are pretty envious that Craig is lucky enough to take in this impressive and prestigious sports media conference in person,

WFNY Podcast – 2013-02-02 – WFNY Curates: Deftones

WFNY Podcast Logo

First off, a warning. This is not a sports podcast. However, with things being kind of quiet in the sports world right now (it’s not like there’s a big game this weekend or anything, right?), and it being the weekend and all, Craig and I decided to try something a little different. One of both

WFNY Podcast Logo

The Art Modell talk has been going strong lately, and in this episode Craig and I discussed the former Browns owner’s upcoming consideration for the pro football Hall of Fame. We tried as much as possible to not rehash all the excellent pieces that have been written on the subject lately, but some of the

You might not have been at the Renaissance Hotel located in downtown Cleveland last night, but five of us from Waiting For Next Year were there for you — Rick, Scott, TD, Jon Cole and I. Earlier this morning, I shared with you some of the highlights in narrative form. But now it’s something a bit more. Thus,

What We’re Thankful For…

thanksgiving-charlie-brown-snoopy

We have a tradition here at WFNY. Each Thanksgiving we take the time to reflect on what has been and what will be and give thanks. This is the fifth edition of What We’re Thankful For. I went back and read the last four. It’s amazing how quick the time rolls by. Rick- I have

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

Waiting For Next Year: Is This the Worst Three-Season Stretch in Cleveland History?

wfny-Logo_2

As a young sports fan in Northeast Ohio, I know I haven’t had it as rough as my elders. I wasn’t alive or sports-literate for most of the Browns more recent playoff appearances nor some of the Michael Jordan-related heartbreaks in the ’80s.  The fact that I have yet to celebrate a sports championship —

With the Cavaliers season finally winding down and the NFL off-season in full dormancy due to lockout, there just isn’t a whole lot to talk about right now in sports. The Indians will provide some relief, but if recent trends persist and the Tribe falters this season it could be a really long year for

Bears 1037, Browns 1031: or Something Like That

Yeah, the final score really doesn’t matter does it? When I saw the ‘starters’ step on the field I figured the points in this one were about as valuable as on Whose Line Is It Anyway? So did we learn anything from this game? Sure. We learned that David Patten isn’t in the Browns plans

Browns vs Titans- What We Want To See

You know the drill. Third preseason game. This one is supposed to resemble an actual football game for at least a half, possibly longer. Obviously we don’t want to see any injuries, (a win would be nice as well!) but aside from that there are a few things that we (WFNY staff) would like to

Cleveland Sports: By The Numbers- #19

What is the greatest uniform number in Cleveland sports history? A number significant to more than just one of the three pro franchises? Today the final part of the week long series… It’s been a fun series. I regret that I rushed to get the list ready to publish on Monday. Looking back, the list

Cleveland Sports: By The Numbers – #32

What is the greatest uniform number in Cleveland sports history? A number significant to more than just one of the three pro franchises?

Cleveland Sports: By The Numbers -#23

What is the greatest uniform number in Cleveland sports history? A number significant to more than just one of the three pro franchises? Today the third part of the week long series… Some might argue that LeBron is all you need for this number to make the list. In my mind however, one transcendent player

Cleveland Sports: By The Numbers – #42

What is the greatest uniform number in Cleveland sports history? A number significant to more than just one of the three pro franchises? Today the second part of the week long series… I appreciate the comments from yesterday’s selection. In case you missed it, I awarded 5th place on the list to the number 21,

Cleveland Sports: By The Numbers – #21

The hottest selling jersey in Cleveland right now is a Cavs #33. Shaq hasn’t worn the jersey for much more than a photo shoot, but already may be the best #33 in Cavalier history. I started thinking about Cleveland jersey numbers and wondered what the greatest number was in Cleveland sports? It would have to

Martinez the Next To Go

There is a white flag climbing the flagpole at Regressive Field. Mark Shapiro is willing to trade anything not nailed down. It is only a matter of days (or hours) before Victor Martinez becomes the latest to go. There is  a chorus of boos coming from the Tribe faithful, but perhaps most frightening is the
