Another Reminder that Sports are Meaningless

Every now and then we get a big story coming across the wire that re-centers us.  When I lived up in Boston during college it was the murder of the “hockey dad” by the another parent.  Then yesterday I read about a soccer player that was shot in the head, apparently, while attempting to score

Have You Heard About This Carl Pavano Guy?

The Indians have a new pitcher this season named Carl Pavano.  Apparently he played for the Yankees last.  He was talked about extensively as a bust in Joe Torre’s book.  He has had numerous health problems that kept him off the field AFTER he signed a big contract to play in the Bronx.  Anyway, I

Lenny Barker’s Perfect Game – The Musical

Here at WFNY we have some weird audience members.  Knowing the sports history of Cleveland I guess I don’t expect much different.  Well, now I want to introduce you to one of these audience members.  Alex Battles is a one man musical anomaly.  Alex is responsible for bringing music that can usually be characterized by

Browns Add Vets Barton and Womack

I know that there is nothing sexy about the Browns’ free agent pickups so far.  I also know that everyone is pretty much tired of looking at Jets stats to see how these guys have played in the past.  Well, there is another Jet coming to town, but coming with him is a dude named

Cavs 119 – Suns 111: Richardson Cries, Lebron and Mo Shine, Bizarro Sasha Returns

(Cavs 119 – Suns 111 box) Lebron James scored a triple-double hat trick.  Three games in a row with a triple double.  Is that good?  Just asking.  The Cavs’ MVP candidate played just over 43 minutes to amass 34 points, 13 assists, and 10 rebounds to go along with his 3 steals and 3 blocked

Joe Jurevicius is Gone: WFNY Weighs In

We all know that Joe Jurevicius is gone now.  The Browns had a press release that I am sure everyone has read.  Now, the time is right for the WFNY staff to get long-winded and hit you with a marathon of varying opinion about Joe Jurevicius’ departure.  It says a whole lot about how sentimental

Dan Gilbert Backs Casinos for Ohio

While Ohio has voted down the idea of casinos at least two times that I know about, it looks like it will be back on the ballot again.  This time, the Cavaliers’ owner Dan Gilbert is on board as an investor.

NFL Free Agency: Leigh Bodden Signs With Pats

For all those hoping that the Browns could sign Leigh Bodden in order to say that we traded a draft pick for Shaun Rogers, well the opportunity is gone.  While Mangini and company were signing Hank Poteat, the Pats were signing the Browns’ former starting CB to a one-year “prove it” type of contract for

Could Danny Ferry Build the Cavs Without Lebron?

I was reading  two articles at the Plain Dealer this morning talking about Danny Ferry’s career as an NBA executive thus far.  Terry Pluto and Brian Windhorst cover a couple different angles.  Windhorst dissects the trades and moves themselves, while Pluto talks about Ferry as a player and how he developed into the man he

Cavs Beat Heat as Mo Williams Outshines MVP Candidates

(Cleveland 99 – Miami 89 Box) As Dwyane Wade drove toward the basket, you could see he was starting to lose control of his body as he so often does.  It usually ends with Dwyane Wade flying every which way, firing up a circus shot that has at least a 30% chance of going in

NFL Free Agency: Thoughts on Robert Royal and the Direction of the Browns

I know there is nothing to be really excited about with the signing of Robert Royal.  At least I don’t believe there is any reason to get excited because of who Robert Royal is as a player.  On the surface, he is just another run-of-the-mill tight end as RockKing and frequent commenter RandyOSU have pointed

Cleveland Cavaliers Win, Clinch Playoff Spot

Cleveland 91, Milwaukee 73 (box) With 22 games left to go, the Cavaliers are going to the NBA playoffs.  (Crickets…)  That was about the same reaction that Lebron and company had after the game.  The Cavs were expected to make the playoffs, and short of a Washington Wizards-esque collapse due to injuries, it was never

Manny Ramirez Selling His Boston Condo for $8.5 Million

Who cares about a recession leaking into depression?  Certainly nobody who can afford to look at Manny’s condo that he recently put up for sale in Boston for $8.5 million.  The condo is 4421 square feet with four bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms and three valet parking spaces.  Oh yeah, and if you can afford the mortgage,

NFL Free Agency Rumors: Browns and Edgerrin James?

According to sources, Edgerrin James wants out of Arizona.  It seems kind of odd to me.  James fled the Colts when they were good and before they won the big one.  Now that the Cards got to the big dance and missed, James wants to get out of there too.  Does this guy fear successful

What Would You Do if the Browns Traded Brady Quinn?

Now, let me get this straight right out of the gates.  I don’t think the Browns are actually going to trade Brady Quinn.  Especially considering what we’ve heard about Eric Mangini and his preferences for players with leadership ability, poise, and professionalism.  If there are qualities that belong on Quinn’s resume, we know more about
