A Little More on Lamond Murray

Over the last couple of weeks, I had the chance to catch up with former Cleveland Cavaliers small forward Lamond Murray.  It’s hard to believe that this year would mark the 10-year anniversary of Murray leading the Cavs in scoring. Equally hard to believe is that 16.6 points would be the mark that would take home the blue ribbon.  Murray was a veteran wing on a team full of young...

“Cursed” Cleveland Sports Might Get a Documentary

I was checking out Scene Magazine’s website this morning and I saw a post about a new documentary seeking funding via Kickstarter.  Of course the movie is set to be called Cursed.  What else could you possibly call a movie about Cleveland sports?  Ugh. In all fairness to the movie makers, it doesn’t sound like this will be a movie draped in misery and self-loathing.  Anyone...
