Another Kyrie misstep, MLB’s ump bravado, and David Letterman: While We’re Waiting…

Good morning, Blawg Pound! The Cavaliers are still kicking, and that’s really all that matters right now. But, we’ll try to talk about more than just the Cavs as we get started on this Thursday before the Memorial Day holiday. Let’s start with those Cavaliers, though. They didn’t waste any time in snatching homecourt away

A fine day in Cleveland, oral histories, and Pixies: While We’re Waiting…

Happy Wednesday, Blawg Pound. We’re staring down the barrel of Memorial Day 2015, the Cavs open their Eastern Conference Finals series against the Atlanta Hawks this evening, and the Indians got a win (!) last night behind yet another dominant pitching performance. It’s a great day! Cavs coach David Blatt can explain why better than I

Talking Cavs and Hawks, Mad Men, and Faith No More: While We’re Waiting…

Happy Tuesday WFNY! I don’t know about you guys, but I’m more than ready for more basketball. These five days off are great for the Cavaliers, but torture for fans. The exciting thing is that, if the Cavaliers are going to be in the Finals, then we are at the halfway point of the playoffs.

Happy Monday, kids. Here’s hoping the weekend—one without the Cleveland Cavaliers—treated you well. There was plenty of time to get

Deflated Footballs, Facebook publishing, and Ryan Adams… While We’re Waiting

Happy Friday everyone. This is another of those posts where I don’t know what happened in the Cavs game when I wrote all this. Still, win or lose, I hope it helps start your Friday off… Just trust someone smarter than yourself… I’ve been thinking about the Patriots and their deflated footballs a lot. I’ve

Mad Men, Fat Betty, and Christmas in May: While We’re Waiting…

Happy Thursday Blawg Pound, and it’s not a lousy day to be alive. The Indians had a classic 18-K pitching performance from Corey Kluber on Wednesday, the Browns have stocked the pantry with fresh talent, and the Cavs — well, we’ll get to the Cavs. But while we’re waiting… . If you’re a follower of

LeBron, Kyrie, expectations, and playing a role: While We’re Waiting…

Happy Wednesday, Blawg Pound. Have you recovered from last night yet? The Cavaliers fell into an early hole, they climbed out of it, they fell back into it, and climbed out of it again. They looked like they might take one last header into the pit, but they stood tall, sank their free throws down

The Cavs are hurt, and their coach is in the spotlight, While We’re Waiting

Happy Tuesday WFNY! The Cleveland Cavaliers are preparing for a huge game tonight against the Chicago Bulls. It goes without saying1 that a loss in Game 5 will be catastrophic. The Cavaliers already gave up one at home, they cannot give up another. What a miserable series this has been, though. I’ve heard some neutral

What’s next for Bill Simmons? While We’re Waiting…

Happy Monday, you guys. If you’re anything like me, you spent much of Sunday evening coming down from the intense and heart-throttling finish to Game 4. The turnovers by LeBron James were beyond frustrating. The offensive fouls were even more so. If you want to take today to discuss David Blatt and his less-than-stellar final

The Biggest Game of the Year, Draft Ease, and Columbus Minutiae: While We’re Waiting…

Good morning, Blawg Pound, on this glorious Thursday morning. The Cavs won, the sun is shining, birds are chirping, and my lower back pain is dissipating, which means that spring golf is hopefully in my not-too-distant future. I’m shorter on time and content than usual, so let’s jump right into it. Of course, we have

Disappointing Cavs, troublesome social media, and so much good music, While We’re Waiting

Happy Tuesday WFNY! So yeah, rough game last night for the Cavaliers, eh? You’re probably going to hear a lot of things today about not panicking and this only being one game. But make no mistake, the Cavaliers are in trouble. In Monday’s game, Kyrie went off for 30 points and Iman Shumpert stepped up
