Humid thoughts on the Cavs: While We’re Waiting

Happy Tuesday, WFNY! Man, what a crazy year this has been in terms of the weather. I know not everyone who reads this lives in NE Ohio. That’s ok, I don’t live there either. But I always assume the weather in Cleveland is more or less the same as it is here in Columbus. And,

Rainy Days and Reinvention: While We’re Waiting…

I’ve had enough, Blawg Pound. Of the rain, I mean. What happened to summer? What happened to carefree days under the sun? What happened to picnics and campouts?

Feeling badly for Mavs fans, USWNT, and Nate Jones: While We’re Waiting

Crazy week folks, but LeBron’s back with the Cavs for real for real. I wasn’t actually worried, but it feels so good for it to happen without a hitch. You know, like DeAndre Jordan. Speaking of… Feeling badly for Mavs fans… I was listening to Bomani Jones discuss the DeAndre Jordan thing on his podcast.

Nonsense and Non Sequiturs: While We’re Waiting…

Happy Thursday, dudes and ladydudes of Cleveland. I’m feeling unusually terse today. Normally anything as slight as Slider’s bare chest can coax a couple thousand words out of me, but not today.

Happy Wednesday, Blawg Pound. It’s getting hot. It’s getting humid. Basketball is long gone; football is a ways away. The U.S. Women’s National Team brought home the World Cup from that distant, foreign land of Canada, so that’s done too. The Men’s National Team beat Honduras in the Gold Cup opener last night, but that’s slightly less
