Uber Economics and Who’s Paul McCartney? While We’re Waiting…

Happy Monday, you guys. I find that a lack of Cleveland Browns football has made for a weird transition here. I mean, I’ve spent the last few months crowbarring in some vague reference to the most recent Sunday afternoon as I head into my standard While We’re Waiting… repertoire, but I find myself being very empty

BUCKEYES WIN! – Ravens or Steelers, Jake Delhomme, Death Cab… While We’re Waiting

Happy Friday everyone. Happy 2015 everyone. As I’m writing this it’s pretty tough sledding for Ohio State in the second quarter, so we’re just going to skip that one altogether for now… In a battle of Ravens and Steelers… Has it sunk in yet how crazy it feels to have three AFC North teams all

Blame Culture Commence! While We’re Waiting…

Looks like we’ll have to wait at least another nine or so months before our next Victory Monday.

Scrolling through Twitter Sunday

Cavs lost on Christmas?!, Szczerbiak Love, and Jeremy Enigk… While We’re Waiting

Webster’s defines waiting as to remain in a state in which you expect or hope that something will happen soon… (Shoutout to Doug Trattner.) Happy day after Christmas everyone. LeBron and the Cavs bit it, so let’s start right there, shall we? Big games on spotlight days make for definitive statements… Across 82 regular season

Andrew Wiggins, underappreciated Cleveland stars and Cavs Vines: While We’re Waiting…

Last week, I shared five different top-five lists as a way to ring out 2014. I wrote that post not knowing if I’d do another While We’re Waiting this year since I usually take Thursdays and Christmas Day and New Year’s Day are Thursdays this year. But looky here, I’m back! I’m subbing for TD

Does God Hate Cleveland? While We’re Waiting…

Another year, another disaster of a Browns season. It’s difficult to remember, but the Browns were 7-4 following a last-second victory over the Atlanta Falcons on November 23. A team can practically backwards somersault into the playoffs from 7-4! Instead, the Browns have gone a stupefying 0-4 since the Falcons victory, limping towards the December

Your Cleveland Cavaliers have won 11 of their last 14 games: While We’re Waiting…

Remember what Victory Mondays felt like? Seems like forever ago that we’ve gotten to celebrate one of those. Good news is that we’ll all be put out of our collective misery in about six days…At least until the entire AFC North (outside of Cleveland) gets to play for a Super Bowl berth. Fun, right? We’ll

To celebrate 2014, I’ve created five top-five lists for your enjoyment. I’ve had fun writing the While We’re Waiting editions on Thursdays this year. Who knows if I’ll do one on Christmas or New Year’s Day in the next two weeks … so I thought I’d commemorate some of the bests of the year in

The NCAA Coaching Carousel: While We’re Waiting…

Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman is taking the head coaching gig in Houston. I suppose it is a tad unrealistic to think that he wasn’t going anywhere after this season, so I suppose I’m just glad that he isn’t taking one of the Big Ten openings. Urban will have to replace him though, and Eleven

Happy Tuesday WFNY! Every year we celebrate Christmas with my mom’s side of the family on the Sunday before Christmas. So pretty much every year, rather than drive up there on that Sunday, then drive back to Columbus for a couple days of work, only to turn around and go back to my parents’ place

Browns QB wins, Kluber’s future salary and Dion Waiters tweets: While We’re Waiting

Cleveland Browns thoughts entering week 15… Sunday’s game is exciting. I’m pretty pumped to be there. It’s not too often that’s the case for any Browns team this late in the season. But these are special circumstances: The 7-6 Cleveland football team is starting its Hollywood-like QB against the 8-4-1 Cincinnati Bengals. Of course, the
