News of Cleveland’s displeasure with the pizza provider has certainly spread. Several internet sites have popularized the boycott, and the Plain Dealer posted a story on its website early Sunday morning. In it we learn two important pieces of information- These shirts were not authorized by the corporate office. No, really? You mean they didn’t
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
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
If you missed the Draft contest post, you can find it here and read the rules. For the Steelers, our own commenter Draftnik– 1.Mike Jenkins, CB, USF 2. Sam Baker, OT, USC 3. Quentin Demps, S, UTEP 4. Donald Thomas, OG, UConn 5. Curtis Johnson, LB, Clark Atlantic For the Ravens, Draftnik picks again-
Another grab from our Waiting For Next Year Flickr Pool. I felt it would be apropos given tomorrow’s game against the Wizards. Plus it helps that we still have the whole “Rise Up” slogan going on… (Even God Wants the Cavs To Win by Flickr member angeiu) Feel free to drop by the pool to
A couple weeks ago WFNY sent out invitations for a Blogger Draft Contest that we are hosting. The concept is simple, give us 5 players your team will pick in this weekend’s draft. Not 5 guys they are looking at for the first pick, but name us 5 guys that will be on the roster after
…as in the original Kid Cleveland. Scott, Rock and I are thrilled that Cleveland’s own Mike Beckwith has agreed to join the site as a contributor. You’ve read Mike’s stuff at Kid Cleveland.com, the Browns MVN page, and The Cleveland Fan. Now he’s bringing the funk from the Dawg Pound to our little corner of
While not exactly Cleveland news, I thought the player photo on Barry Bonds’ RotoWorld page deserved some attention. Not that I can blame Bonds. I’d try to pretend that I was Tom Glavine as well if I were in his situation.
While this site is typically littered with the rumblings of Rick, Rock and myself, what truly makes it the Cleveland sports blog that it is are the readers, commentors and fans. Typically, we’ll link to articles written by predominant Cleveland-based journalists from either the Plain Dealer or ABJ, but the more we can involve all
Well, not everyone’s. If you happen to live in the Northeast Ohio area, and are a Time Warner Cable subscriber then you may get NEON, Time Warner’s North East Ohio Network. Tonight I’ll be on the More Sports and Les Levine show taking calls and shamelessly plugging the website. If you are near your tv
If your television ever tunes in to ESPN, even if you merely scurry past it on occasion, you no doubt were subjected to the Who’s Now fiasco. Now, the self-proclaimed World Wide Leader in Sports has a new gimmick, er contest called TitleTown USA. The idea is that fans will write an essay, or submit
The folks at Hardwood Paroxysm have put together what they are calling the NBA Blogger Season Awards. They have a poll set up for the readers’ choice awards with several categories. They nominated us for best Central Division and Best Eastern Conference blog. We certainly appreciate the nod. If nothing else, it’s worth it to
I’m a fan of Extra Mustard. For those of you not familiar with SI’s version of a sports/entertainment blog, you should try it sometime. In fact, start with a photo gallery that they entitled “Drafting Baseball Movie Characters.” Go ahead. I’ll wait. Interesting idea they came up with, too bad they flopped on the execution.
If Cleveland fans have gotten use to embracing one thing, its been the lack of championship banners on the ceilings of our areans and the walls of our stadia. Thankfully, we haven’t gone unnoticed as the folks over at BallHype have decided to include this town in their latest Spotlight Series: Fightin’ Words.I was very
Just a quick little March Madness update for the readers. It’s currently halftime between UNLV and Kent State, and the Golden Flashes are rolling into the second period with 10 points. Ten. The Running Rebels hung a 31-spot on Kent, sinking 13-of-30 shots (43 percent). By no means is 43 percent something to write home
Former Kent State University guard goes for 75 points – garners NBA attention A very well-written piece about a former Kent State guard can be found over in the Dallas-Fort Worth Telegram. Demetric Shaw, a 6’3″ point guard and former Homecoming King at KSU has made some headlines thanks to a 74-point outing in a basketball
Bob Costas The Latest To Lash Out Against The Blogging Community There’s a very disturbing trend amongst the mainstream media community, and it’s one that I, quite obviously, have strong feelings about. More and more members of the media elite are lashing out against the world of sports blogs. Much of it is seemingly unprovoked
This week’s ‘Best of the Web’ will be somewhat brief. As always, we start with a review of stories from WFNY (that’s what all the cool kids call WaitingForNextYear.) The Cavaliers played bookend games against the Bulls this week, winning the first one, and losing the last. In between was LeBron’s 50 point gem in
I don’t do this often, but I thought that with being Leap Year and all, a plug for an area musician wouldn’t hurt. If you do not have anything going on tonight – and even if you do, reschedule – as Mo Andrews will be playing at 10p tonight at Merry Arts in Lakewood, OH.
Welcome to the weekly best of the web. (By the way, my friend would kill at that game.) So what has been going on this week… Around here the Cavs won one, and lost two. LeBron scored his 10,000th point, and Mike Brown got ejected. Scott wondered what might have been if the Cavs went after
