Hi, everybody! You’ve tried the best, now try the rest as I take a fill-in day for Andrew “The Rock” Schnitkey, and please try to remember that inflammable means flammable (what a country!).

The Cavs, Craig Ehlo, and Long Decembers: While We’re Waiting…

The Cavs are going to the NBA Finals! The Browns haven’t lost a game in exactly five months today! The Indians are playing not terrible! What a great day to use exclamation points! They can be obnoxious and grating, but the exclamation point really is an underrated piece of punctuation … top five in my

Happy Tuesday WFNY! I hope you guys all enjoyed your extended holiday weekend. I know I sure did. In fact, I had such an enjoyable weekend that I forgot for a second that today is actually Tuesday and not Monday. And, more important, that meant that today is my WWW day. So, while I’m still

Happy Memorial Day Monday, you guys.

Another Kyrie misstep, MLB’s ump bravado, and David Letterman: While We’re Waiting…

Good morning, Blawg Pound! The Cavaliers are still kicking, and that’s really all that matters right now. But, we’ll try to talk about more than just the Cavs as we get started on this Thursday before the Memorial Day holiday. Let’s start with those Cavaliers, though. They didn’t waste any time in snatching homecourt away

Happy Wednesday, Blawg Pound. We’re staring down the barrel of Memorial Day 2015, the Cavs open their Eastern Conference Finals series against the Atlanta Hawks this evening, and the Indians got a win (!) last night behind yet another dominant pitching performance.

Talking Cavs and Hawks, Mad Men, and Faith No More: While We’re Waiting…

Happy Tuesday WFNY! I don’t know about you guys, but I’m more than ready for more basketball. These five days off are great for the Cavaliers, but torture for fans. The exciting thing is that, if the Cavaliers are going to be in the Finals, then we are at the halfway point of the playoffs.

LeBron, Kyrie, expectations, and playing a role: While We’re Waiting…

Happy Wednesday, Blawg Pound. Have you recovered from last night yet? The Cavaliers fell into an early hole, they climbed out of it, they fell back into it, and climbed out of it again. They looked like they might take one last header into the pit, but they stood tall, sank their free throws down

The Cavs are hurt, and their coach is in the spotlight, While We’re Waiting

Happy Tuesday WFNY! The Cleveland Cavaliers are preparing for a huge game tonight against the Chicago Bulls. It goes without saying1 that a loss in Game 5 will be catastrophic.
