I’m sure you saw the 23 Crybaby shirts that many fans were wearing at the Verizon Center for Cleveland’s game 6 win over the Wizards. What you might not have noticed is that those shirts were given out as a promotion by Papa John’s restaurants. Or perhaps you did… I’m a delivery driver at Papa
“Cleveland is advancing. We won the series 4-2. That speaks louder than me saying anything about the fans here, anything about DeShawn Stevenson, Cleveland is advancing. That’s all that matters.”- LeBron James Indeed. Cleveland’s King dominated the Cavaliers’ game 6 win over Washington. This time he dominated not by scoring, but by doing everything
The Cleveland Browns inked a contract extension with perhaps the man most valuable to the team’s turnaround. General Manager Phil Savage. The extension will keep Savage in Cleveland until 2012. This extension has been talked about since Romeo Crennel signed his deal shortly after the Super Bowl. Cleveland Browns.com’s Zac Jackson has the details. Savage
I thought that this may go well with Rock’s recent piece on Sasha Pavlovic. Do enjoy.
With the news of the suspension of Wizards forward Darius Songalia for tonight’s game already hitting news circles, the news just got a little worse for the Wizards as Cavaliers guard Sasha Pavlovic may be ready to play tonight. The news of Songalia’s suspension is definitely the big news of this afternoon regarding this series.
While I think that we were one of the only blogs to not really delve into the entire Will Leitch/Buzz Bissinger/Bob Costas issue, C-Notes has put together a pretty homorous take from the mind of Braylon Edwards – who, for some reason, was on the panel of those that were to discuss the Internet. Naturally,
Cleveland Cavaliers (45-37, 3-2) vs Washington Wizards (43-39, 2-3) Verizon Center, Washington DC Friday, May 2, 2008 7:00 p.m. ET ESPN2/FSN OH/WUAB, WTAM Game 5, chance to clinch the series, at home, up 5 points with 90 seconds left to go and the ball in your possession. If offered up that scenario, you’d take it
…And Darius Songalia will be in street clothes this evening. This will undoubtedly give Washington fans something to complain about – and they may have a point. Perhaps it wasn’t an intentional punch/backhand, and perhaps not. Either way, this is a tough blow to the Wizards frontcourt as it thins the depth behind Brendan Haywood
When you have teams going at each other like the Cavs and Wizards have been, it’s fair to say that fans of those teams won’t see eye to eye. The folks over at Truth About It dot net have questioned some of our analysis. (Ok, mostly mine.) So I thought we’d talk about tonight’s big
One big issue that the Cavaliers are going to have to overcome tonight is the fact that they did not capitalize on a game that featured some awful performances from Washington’s main post players. Antawn Jamison was an uncharacteristic 3-of-10 from the floor, finishing with eight points in 41 minutes. Mind you, this the same
Even half of this would do… It wasn’t all too long ago that Tribe fans were getting a bit uneasy about this year’s version of Paul Byrd. Not that you can really blame us as the veteran lasted a combined 7.1 innings over his first two starts – allowing nine earned runs! Nine! Couple that
Les discusses the biggest disappointment from Washington’s win… [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mt-jDyDcEbo[/youtube] This was my point at the end of the game recap on Wednesday. Detroit took care of the 76ers last night. They will now face a rested Magic team. Boston has a chance to finish off their series in Atlanta on Friday. Who has the better
While John Cooper will always have the stigma for his record against the University of Michigan Wolverines (2-10-1), his record against other teams made him the second-winningest coach in Ohio State football history. Coupling his successes in Columbus with those accomplished elsewhere, the Columbus Dispatch reports that Cooper will be inducted into the College Football

Who’s the guy with the sour puss? Why it’s SEC Commisioner Mike Slive! In a move that our SEC brethren will no doubt find a way to blame on Ohio State, or the Big Ten in general, the BCS committee decided against going to a plus one format. It was not just the Big Ten and
While there have been plenty of “faces” in sports (Tim Duncan and Peyton Manning come to mind), I think we’re going to have to coin the shot of Mike Brown at the end of last night’s game as the “Monster.com” face. Of course, if any job search engine wants to partner up, we can change
Given the end of the game, this seems to be an overlooked portion. Possibly because it was at the beginning, or possibly because there were plenty of other things to worry about. But I figured it was something that we should rehash a bit. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3p-HsSfehsA] A few things of mention: – Brendan Haywood fouled out
The Good and The Bad From Last Night’s Tribe Game Apparently, the Cleveland Indians also played a game last night, which in hindsight is a shame given the fact that the team played extremely well while most attention was turned to the Cavs, who decided that they’d rather miss 15 layups in a playoff game. Also apparent, Cliff
The series moves back to DC, (sorry Dan, you’ll have to find a sitter) with the Cavs up 3-2. The Cavaliers shot 36%, turned the ball over 13 times and had their rebounding edge negated. Still they were up 87-82 with 1:37 left on the clock. Then Mike Brown, offensive genius, called the same play
Les asks what type of team the Indians are trying to be… [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8BUCzkFFbY[/youtube] Les, this is not one of your better points. The Indians are obviously built around pitching. With the exception of Paul Byrd, our starters are capable of shutting down any opponent for 7 or 8 innings. The bullpen has struggled somewhat, but
