Cavs Streaking, Dancing Sharks, and Big Burritos: While We’re Waiting…

The Bad News Browns have struck again! Wednesday afternoon, we learned the Browns could be in hot water for Ray Farmer’s Texts From the Press Box and that Kyle Shanahan made a THIRTY-TWO point Powerpoint justifying his exit from the organization. And all this on the heels of Johnny Manziel checking into treatment and Josh

National Signing Day, Josh Gordon’s suspension, and nicknames: While We’re Waiting…

Welcome to Wednesday, Wiffnyers. Wiffnyers—that doesn’t quite work, does it? Wiffnyers, hmmm. Never mind for now; we’ll get back to that later. It’s National Signing Day, that special Wednesday in February when 18-year-olds across the country announce at which institutions of higher learning they will play football. I confess that I have not been following the latest recruiting news, nor

Super Bowl items galore and more Ohio music, While We’re Waiting

Happy Tuesday WFNY! Hopefully everyone has recovered from watching the most blown Super Bowl of my lifetime (and maybe ever, but I don’t know). This Super Bowl was…not for me. Two of my absolute least favorite coaches in the NFL are Bill Belichick and Pete Carroll. I dislike Belichick mostly out of petty jealousy and

Super Bowl finishes, American Sniper, and WFNY turns seven: While We’re Waiting…

Ten hours later and I’m still blown away by how the game ended. The catch by Lynch. The bobbled and hauled in pass along the right sideline. Marshawn Lynch getting to the one, only to be relegated to third and fourth down in the event a bizarre slant pass didn’t work? So many thoughts. So

I will not talk about Josh Gordon. I will not talk about Marshawn Lynch.

Kyrie with one for the ages, conference climate, and Buckeye turnout: While We’re Waiting…

Good morning and Happy Thursday, WFNY-ers! Did anybody catch the Cavs game last night? If you didn’t, you missed one of the best individual performances in Cavalier franchise history, courtesy of Kyrie Irving. When word came down that the wine and gold would be LeBron-less last night, the mind immediately jumped to that 1-8 record

LeBron, Klay, JR, and Injecting Strangers: While We’re Waiting…

Welcome to the final Wednesday of January 2015. This winter hasn’t been that bad, right? We probably have three more months of it to look forward to, but aside from a couple bad spells, I think we’ve been fairly fortunate in Cleveland thus far. I was in South Korea this time last year and have

Air pressure nonsense, Cavaliers roster moves, and Cleveland music, While We’re Waiting

Happy Tuesday WFNY! Hopefully all your balls are fully inflated as we begin this Tuesday journey. Speaking of segues, how about this deflate-gate b.s.?

NFL on TV, freedom of speech and Ohio Sky… While We’re Waiting

Billion-dollar franchises and your brain on empty calories: While We’re Waiting…

Another year, another disastrous ending to the Cleveland Browns’ season, and another offensive coordinator to blame for the team’s struggles. Let’s hope new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo lasts longer than a campaign for city council. Sweet Moses, do I see trendy culinary treats moving into right field? Yesterday, the Cleveland Indians announced that as part

Happy day of humping, ladies and gents. What’s that? Oh—hump day, they call it. Because it’s the middle of the week? And a hump is in the middle of a camel’s back? My mistake. I thought something was amiss when Marcia at the office spoke so crudely. Very unlike her; spooked me a bit. I was

Howdy and welcome to Thursday, fellow WFNYers (pronounced WOOF-ners). It’s been quite a week of polar opposites between Ohio State football and Cavalier basketball, hasn’t it?
