A Record-Breaking Season for Browns Fans

Though the Browns still have one more home game remaining, you all can take pride in the fact that you actually topped last year’s production!  While the win total may not have exactly – you know – improved, one metric of team “success” did: fan arrests.  Last season, Cleveland Browns stadium saw a vast increase in arrests and

Pavlik on Wrong End of “Upset of the Year”

Sports Illustrated released their 2008 boxing awards this week.  Not surprising was Manny Pacquiao taking home the award for Boxer of the Year.  Topping Oscar De La Hoya this past month was only icing on the cake for Pacquiao’s year in the WBC.  While scouring the list for Ohio’s own Kelly Pavlik, we did find

12 Days: Cardinals, Ravens, Eagles, and Falcons

And the 12 Days of a Cleveland Sports Christmas roll on.  Congratulations to Zoss for winning yesterday’s prize: The Browns Fans Tailgating Guide by Peter Chakerian.  Though the season’s near over, this is definitely something to help one wallow away a sub-par year, and will likely be timeless given the way this town enjoys their pre-game rituals.

The Browns Will Win If…

This Sunday is the quintessential “Lipstick on a Pig” game. I find myself fighting the inner battle of “Please, just let the Browns FINALLY SCORE AN OFFENSIVE TOUCHDOWN” and “Come on Romeo, just roll over and solidify our draft status. Don’t be a hero.” The Bengals are one of the few teams that (record-wise) have

Nice Shades for Your Buck-Eyes

There’s been some recent talk about the gifts that NCAA football players get for reaching certain bowls.  The gifts range from pretty sweet (80-gig Playstation 3s, Blu-Ray DVD players) all the way down to “wait, thisis our gift?” (Chic-fil-a gift certificates, backpacks).  Somewhere in between lie the gifts that the Texas Longhorns and Ohio State

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,

Blue Jackets

A Game-Changer?

I was going to write my “Third 10″ piece about the Jackets, as they played their 30th team game on Sunday. But, with work being what it is, and with Sunday’s Jackets game being a deflating let-down, I elected to table it. And, then Wednesday night’s game against the San Jose Sharks happened. And I

This LeBron Guy is Pretty Big…

Over the summer, a lot of people were discussing the size of Team USA.  One of the starting big men on the team was Utah’s Carlos Boozer, who stood about 6’9″, 280 lbs.  What’s absolutely crazy about those numbers is how strikingly similar they are to LeBron James, who for all intents and purposes is

Braylon Edwards: An Ed(wards)itorial

Forgive me for bleeding onto this blog, but sometimes it’s just what we have to do when things warrant an emotional response. And, as I recently told a friend in an e-mail, I know that in general, asking OSU fans to give me a break about something Michigan-related is like, uh, how do you say,

LeBron James Owns Fourth Quarter, Timberwolves

Cavaliers 93 – Timberwolves 70 [box] It seems like it has been so long since LeBron James has had to actually play in a fourth quarter that I forgot how impressive he usually is in the final frame.  With 32 total points last night, 14 of them came in the final quarter with James still

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

Steve Heiden, Beau Bell Done for Season

The Plain Dealer’s Tony Grossi gave a brief recap of the damage done in Monday night’s game against the Eagles.  While many players survived the skirmish, a couple did not.  Likely being added to the injured reserve – ultimately ending respective seasons – will be tight end Steve Heiden and rookie linebacker Beau Bell.

Brian Giles, Sued by Ex-Girlfriend

Slow news morning thus far, but this is definitely something that caught my eye.  Former Indian outfielder Brian Giles’ name hit the news wire, but not for a reason that he would likely prefer. An ex-girlfriend of Giles claims that he had the occasional bout with the backhands which caused her to lose her then
