Someone Please Make Sense Of This

Browns Offer Contract Extensions To Anderson And Lewis Ok, Jamal Lewis I get. He’s an unrestricted free agent, the Browns have no other viable options at running back right now.

LeBron Speaks Out

Trouble In Happy Waters? LeBron James doesn’t seem particularly happy these days. It would be nice if he was just cranky still because his beloved Yanks fell to the Tribe in the playoffs this year, but unfortunately for us all, there’s some actual merit to his gripes.
