Absolutely HUGE home football games for the Buckeyes and the Browns this weekend. Victories would change the outlook and currently limited expectations for both squads. Losses would cause many fans to write off their respective seasons. Both teams have challenging, but winnable games, at home, that will really give us a firm gauge on where [...]
East side/west side. Cleveland is definitely an east/west metropolitan area. And Clevelanders are proud of being either east sider or west siders. As someone who’s spent 34 years living on the east side, and the last three plus years working/dining on the west side, here’s my thoughts on which side wins the following battles …
Indians season wraps up tonight. And the final game has some significance. A win tonight over the Tigers in Detroit would secure an 81-81 season for the Tribe, and also give them sole possession of second place in the AL Central.
It was a fun season for the Indians. Back in March, all I asked for [...]
I miss lazy fall weekends. Once you have a couple of children, those go away.
Here’s what a typical fall Saturday used to look like for me …
8 AM – Wake up. Spend an hour online researching football games for all the various fantasy leagues, pools, and other games I may or may not have a [...]
Talk about winning ugly. That was just a bad football game between two bad teams yesterday afternoon at Cleveland Browns Stadium.
But alas, the Browns are now 2-1 for the first time since 2002. And have an average Tennessee Titans team who will be missing their best receiver (Kenny Britt) and rushed for 38 yards on [...]
Must. Win. Game. It’s that simple for the Browns on Sunday. If they harbor any hopes of winning enough games to stay in the division race and praying Joe Flacco and Toothlessberger are injured when we play the Ravens and Stillers in four of our last five games, they cannot lose at home to Cincinnati [...]
Was surfing the web last night with my kids trying to help them figure out what they’re going top be for Halloween this year. With my daughter, she decided before the Google home page even came up. “A princess daddy.” Everything is princesses. Every book she reads, every DVD she watches, every toy she plays [...]
Connie Schultz has resigned from the Plain Dealer. The snippet from this morning’s PD:
Pulitzer Prize winner and Plain Dealer columnist Connie Schultz resigned today.
“In recent weeks, it has become painfully clear that my independence, professionally and personally, is possible only if I’m no longer writing for the newspaper that covers my husband’s senate race [...]
Some quick hits from the weekend …
Relief. That’s what I felt when the Browns pulled away from the Colts in the fourth quarter to even their record at 1-1 on the season. Not excitement. That said, the team has a chance to get me a little bit excited these next couple of weeks here. We’re [...]
Big football weekend. A slew of good college games on Saturday, topped off by Ohio State at Miami of Florida at 7:30 PM and #1 Oklahoma at #5 Florida State at 8:00 PM.
Then the Browns will be at Indianapolis to take on the Colts at 1 PM on Sunday. If the Browns can’t beat this [...]
