Um, About Kellen…

A league source tells us that the talk among the Browns is that tight end Kellen Winslow landed in the Cleveland Clinic because his balls swelled to the size of grapefruits. Wow.  I’m actually pretty speechless.  Obviously, all while wishing Winslow the best. WINSLOW HAS SWOLLEN, UM, PARTS? [PFT]

Wait, How Many Octobers Are There?

The Phillies beat the Dodgers last night in game one of the NLCS, and the Rays take on the Red Sox in game one of the ALCS tonight. I didn’t watch a pitch of any of the Division Series games, and likely won’t watch much of the LCS games either. As I was watching the

Arizona Fall League: At Least We’re Hitting…

Surprise 8, Scottsdale 7 – 10 Innings (box) First, let me get something out of the way: Matt Wieters is the real deal.  I don’t know if he’ll get a crack at the Orioles roster on day one, but it won’t be too long before this kid is getting All-Star votes.  As the designated hitter in

Romeo Crennel: “Focus on the Game”

It’s a copycat league out there, folks.  Waiting For Next Year compares the Cleveland Browns to Sarah Palin, and wouldn’t you know – Brady Quinn and Joe Thomas head out to Strongsville to support the McCain/Palin ticket.  Their teammate, Willie McGinest, was out with LeBron James at a rally for Barack Obama and Senator Joe Biden.

Boobie Gibson, Scoring Points

Apparently, there has been some back office uproar amongst the agents of NBA players.  There is no denying that this past off season has been near stellar for Danny Ferry.  Stellar would have been if Chris Paul was a Cavalier.  What can I say, I’m a tough customer.  But one signing that made it near

Think You’ve Got What It Takes?

“So if any of you has any fantasies about running out of that tunnel with your helmet shining in the sun …you best leave them right here.”- RUDY Have you dreamed of making the final shot at the buzzer? In your backyard do you set up at the three point line and imagine LeBron driving

So, We Aren’t the Only Ones “Ill”

With our football team 1-3 heading into a Monday Night’r against the reigning champions, I can’t help but feel a little sick to my stomach.  But with this recent newsout of Browns camp, it appears that the feeling is contagious among the players as well. The Browns will practice again Thursday without Kellen Winslow, who’s

Arizona Fall League: Lofgren Needs a Mulligan

Peo Javelinas 8, Surprise 7 (box) While we were able to see the AFL debuts of several Indians players two days ago, the second game of the season lifted the curtain on a couple more.  Unfortunately, Chuck Lofgren likely wishes that the curtain would just stay put as he was torched for six earned runs in

Beanie Wells and His Stiff Arm

If you have the opportunity, go back and watch all of Chris Wells’ runs against Wisconsin again. Be prepared to be impressed. Think you can power him down? Think again. Think he’s got fullback speed? Think again. Think he doesn’t have great natural instincts? I beg to differ. Plus, he has the hammer. You can’t

Running on Empty?

The Cavaliers lost their first exhibition game of the season last night at the Q, and the story of the night from Brian Windhorst was the up-tempo style the Cavaliers unveiled. Quick story- It’s fall 1993. I’m working at a sports themed restaurant near the old Richfield Coliseum. Mike Fratello is in his first year

The Browns-Palin Paradox

Like it or not, the televised broadcasts within the National Football League are about ratings.

Well, At Least We’re Deserving

Just found this bit thanks to Bugs and Cranks.  For the record, I would love to see the Cubs win the World Series, assuming that it was not against the Indians.  If anything, it would allow us to be done with this whole curse thing and direct all attention back to our dreadful history.  From

Hey… Nobody said it was going to be pretty.  Perhaps the team didn’t do much of anything between the first drive and the very last drive, but that is all it takes sometimes.  Going to Madison, Wisconsin at night and leaving with a win?  It could have been by one point and I would be

Varejao Not Gone Just Yet

By now we all know the story of Anderson Varejao last offseason. He was a restricted free agent, he held out and made ridiculous demands and thought he was worth way more than anyone would actually pay him, his holdout got ugly and personal between himself, his agent Dan Fegan, and Cavaliers GM Danny Ferry,
