I’m not a fan of award shows. But I’m a huge Scarlett Johansson movie buff, so I do saddle up every year for the Oscars. My wife is one of those people that lives to see what the movie stars are wearing, so I also got put through two hours of “red carpet” interviews, which [...]
I love living in Cleveland. I love living in Cleveland. I love living in Cleveland.
Mornings like this I gotta keep telling myself that. 90 minutes from Twinsburg to Lakewood. White knuckling 480, Jennings, and 90 in my rear-wheel drive Hyundai Genesis.
I gotta keep telling myself how perfect our summer weather is, and how much we [...]
The Cavaliers made a trade last night. They dealt Mo Williams and Jamario Moon to the Los Angeles Clippers for Baron Davis and a first round pick in this year’s upcoming NBA Draft.
The Cavs will now have two lottery picks in the 2011 NBA Draft, which by all accounts is considered weak at the top. [...]
Carmelo Anthony is now a New York Knick. And once Chris Paul joins him there this off-season, we’ll now have two consecutive off-seasons where star players have used their high profile agents to force their way together in locations of their choosing.
The NBA is already a league where 22-23 of the teams have no chance [...]
President Obama comes to Cleveland today. He’s a busy guy, clearly, but what if he and all the political muscle he’s bringing to town had the opportunity to spend the rest of the day here on the north coast? Here’s what I would suggest they do with the rest of their wintry late-February day here [...]
I’m almost through with “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest”, which is the third and final novel in the best-selling “Millennium series” by Swedish writer Stieg Larsson. The three novels were published posthumously in Swedish in 2007 and in English here in the states in October 2009, where they’ve become very popular. The primary [...]
We’ve got a little mid-winter heat wave coming to Cleveland. Mid 40’s today, and temps in the 50’s tomorrow and Friday. It’s going to be excellent to see the grass and sidewalks for the first time in close to two months. There’s just something very surreal about not seeing anything green for 50-60 days straight.
It’s been yet another off-season of great change for the Cleveland Browns. Yet another reboot.
Since 1999, the only consistent thing this franchise has had (besides the losing) has been change. In just eleven years, we’re now on our eighth regime with this football team. Chris Palmer and Carmen Policy/Dwight Clark. Butch Davis and Clark. Butch [...]
The Cavs won!!!! I guess I should be happy … but I really feel like there’s now nothing left to be interested in with this team.
They have no talent, play no defense, and really don’t even try hard to win most nights. At least when the streak was going there was some interesting, historically significant [...]
Some quick hits to end the week …
The Indians made their most high-profile acquisition of the off-season yesterday, inking 36-year old veteran middle infielder Orlando Cabrera to a minor league deal. Cabrera immediately becomes the front runner to start the season at second base, and would pair with Asdrubal to give the Tribe an “all-Cabrera” [...]
