It’s been a rocky few weeks for The Ohio State University. They were bounced from the Big Dance last Friday night, and of course, all the developments with Tattoo-gate.
I find it absolutely hysterical all the pundits down south and all the talking heads in the national media that are calling for Tressel’s head over this, [...]
Yes, last night’s win over LeQuitter and the Heat was great. No one was whispering sweet nothings in his ear, the team played hard, and Queen James was not allowed uncontested waltzes to the rim.
It was all the stuff they should have done in the first game here in Cleveland between the two teams.
And the [...]
Forget all that stuff I said about how awesome March Madness is. The mere sight of the games this weekend was just too painful to even watch in the wake of the Buckeyes loss to Kentucky on Friday night.
With the Cavs, Indians, and Browns improbably dragging the collective status of Cleveland sports to its lowest [...]
The “you know you’re from Cleveland if …” bit yesterday inspired as much e-mail feedback as anything I’ve written in a while. And with it, some good suggestions of things I should have included.
You remember Hough Bakery and the blue and white pastry boxes tied with string.
You shopped at Pick n’ Pay, Gold Circle, and [...]
You know you’re from Cleveland if …
You know you don’t really have an accent, the rest of the world does.
You hear there are always famous people in town, but you have never seen one.
You hate country music, don’t know anyone that does like country music, and yet WGAR just won the country music station of [...]
Indians vs. the White Sox at Progressive Field. One week from Friday, first pitch at 3:05 PM. Opening day – just nine days away. And on cue, we’re supposed to get more snow these next few days.
Could it be a repeat of the memorable 2007 opener?
Over the next week and a half, I’ll try and [...]
Coke is kicking Pepsi’s butt in the Cola Wars. The 2010 numbers just came out, and Diet Coke has surpassed Pepsi as the #2 soft drink in America, ending Pepsi’s decades-long run as the perennial runner up to soda king Coca-Cola.
Mountain Dew made huge strides in 2010. The Dew is the fourth most popular US [...]
I watched 47 hours of college basketball over the last four days. And that doesn’t count the six hours I spent dreaming about Gus Johnson last night. Sitting on the couch and watching hoops may not sound exhausting, but I feel totally spent today. I’m going home and curling into a ball and sucking my [...]
Saint Patty’s Day. There’s not an iota of Irish blood in my Italian/Ukranian body … but that doesn’t stop me from being one of the people that gets swept up in the whole “Irish for a day” thing here on the north coast of The United States of America.
Cleveland actually has a huge Irish presence. [...]
Some more March Madness tidbits this morning to get things started.
First off – check out this outstanding column taking a look back at the magical run of the 1986 Cleveland State Vikings, who were the team that helped make the term “Cinderella” fashionable when they knocked off Bobby Knight, Steve Alford, and the #3 Indiana [...]
