Do We Still Need The Rooney Rule?

I think at this point in this nation’s history, we all know where the state of diversity stands.  Um, Barack Obama is going to be inaugurated into the highest office in the land soon.  We are a few years removed from the Superbowl where we were reminded every two seconds that Tony Dungy and Lovie

Goodbye Phil Savage: A Recap of Drafts, Free Agents

Well, it didn’t take long for Randy Lerner to drop the hammer on one of the two people who share the responsibility for the Browns’ embarrassing season.  Now, I know that a lot of us are feeling awfully vengeful right about now due to the embarrassing season that we have just endured.  At the same

Seattle is “Worse, even, than Cleveland”

That is how ESPN Outside The Lines is referring to Seattle this year.  I know it isn’t a competition, but by their standards, Seattle’s 2008 was even worse than Cleveland’s 1995.  Seattle lost the Sonics like Cleveland lost the Browns, but that same year the Indians made the World Series.  This year’s Mariners lost 101

Is Mike Tomlin From Philly?

Apparently there is a tradition in Pittsburgh where sports announcer Bill DiFabio dresses up like Santa and takes over the Steelers’ press conference.  Tomlin apparently played along until the fake Santa started making fun of the Cowboys, Browns and Casey Hampton’s weight.  Tomlin is a serious, competitive dude and apparently is very serious about the

Who Are These Cavaliers?

It is a season to remember thus far, that’s for sure.  Terry Pluto thinks this could be the greatest Cavs team ever.  Now this quote comes from CNN/SI’s latest power rankings (the Cavs are number 2 this week.) “Cleveland has been so good, they haven’t needed LeBron in the fourth quarter,” an advance scout told me

This Should Be Our Job

LenDale White decided to desecrate the terrible towel.  And, what, exactly do you call a desecrated terrible towel?  An even less gooder terrible towel?  Sadly, I don’t think that Dorsey and the boys are going to be able to deliver such a performance, even against a field of Pittsburgh reserves next week.

A Note to Wally Szczerbiak

A lot of people out there are starting to predict that because the Cavs are playing so well right now that they won’t trade Wally Szczerbiak and his expiring contract.  Now, I understand that kind of chatter, but let me just send this message to our good friend Wally.  I want you to meet a

Wastes of Jersey

No, this is not a post about a state near New York City.  This, my friends, is a title that could easily summarize a large portion of the souvenire shop at Cleveland Browns Stadium.  It describes the scary things that we all have hanging in our closets next to the skeletons and Tom Cruise (allegedly,

Braylon Edwards’ Quote of the Day

There comes a time in the life of a sports fan when reality must officially set in.  No, I am not talking about the Browns team being bad.  I mean, they ARE bad.  We know that to be reality.  The reality that I am referencing now is that Braylon Edwards might never be able to

Larry Hughes Equals Fail (Again)

From the category of beating a dead horse, in this case also known as the steaming pile of corpse that is Larry Hughes’ career, I give you epic injury fail. Apparently, Larry Hughes was all set to be traded back to the only place where he could play basketball and have fun pressure free in

Hot Stove Heating Up For Tribe

Well, I guess that answers that.  The Tribe is NOT going to sit idly by this off-season.  With the winter meetings in Vegas, the Tribe has been active.  First, the Tribe made an aggressive move signing Kerry Wood to be their closer.  It is a welcome relief (puns, heh) to see someone not named Wickman or

Bullet Points – Colts vs. Browns – Instantaneous 2 (Electric Boogaloo)

The Browns vs. Colts game could have been so much more this year.  I know that is obvious to all Browns fans, but I mean personally.  My wife grew up in Indy and is a die-hard Colts fan.  She doesn’t really care about the Pacers and she doesn’t gravitate toward any college program in any

Buckeyes Survive Scare Against Bowling Green

That’s right, folks.  It is college basketball time already.  The coverage may be a bit spotty for the Ohio State men’s basketball team, at least in comparison to the Cavs, Indians and Browns, but when we see a game, we will try to give you some updates. Coming into this season the Ohio State men’s

In Defense of Randy Lerner

I know that this season is over and we can’t get it back.  I know our expectations were way high after a 10-win season.  I know that the game against Houston feels like a complete rock bottom.  I know all this.  I am disappointed, dismayed, disgusted and about a million other words that start with

Bullet Points: Texans vs. Browns – Instantaneous Edition

Today, I decided to do my bullets live as the game was happening.  So, hopefully I won’t forget stuff because I am writing as it happens.  So, I am going to break it down on first half and second half.  On with the marathon of bullet points as they happened… First Half The Browns apparently

Cavs Beat Hawks, LeBron and Delonte Shine

LeBron James didn’t get to his scoring average, but it didn’t matter as the Cavaliers rolled to a 110-96 rout of the Atlanta Hawks.  The Cavs led the Hawks from wire to wire and LeBron found ways to dunk the ball all game long.  He caught alley-oops.  He faked behind the back passes on the

“That’s What I’m Talking About!”

What is that?  What was I saying?  Oh yeah.  I wasn’t saying anything at all.  I am just screaming something akin to gibberish because I am excited and I have heard other people yell it before. This doesn’t have anything to do with Cleveland sports, specifically.  While watching college football yesterday, I think I counted

The Articles that Weren’t

I have been a lazy writer lately.  Every time I have an idea for an article, life gets in the way.  A busy day at the office.  An extra walk with the dog because she is too amped up.  You know.  The same stuff that gets in the way of you taking on all the

Bullet Points: Browns Bust Bills (Alliteration Abounds)

Another game, this time a win, but nearly the same feeling.  I don’t know if I am completely emotionally divested from this team because of their record, but I took almost no joy from last night’s win.  As was pointed out by WFNY regular The Bambino in the chat last night, you can NEVER root
