15 Years ago, the dilapidated Cleveland Stadium -- former home of the Browns and Indians -- was demolished. Though Cleveland was without a football team for a bit, it's since been replaced by Progressive Field and Cleveland Browns Stadium -- shiny new-age facilities featuring all the amenities you'd expect. After the demolition, pieces of the stadium were dumped into adjacent Lake Eerie to help create an artificial reef to promote sea growth -- common practice with military ships, not so much with public stadia. Well, thanks to Hurricane Sandy, the remnants of Cleveland Stadium have returned from their watery grave, washing ashore in the wake of the storm, according to Tremont Electric. Pieces of Cleveland stadium now litter the Lake Eerie coastline by Cleveland Browns Stadium (where Cleveland Stadium once stood), and impressive display of the storm's power. Keep in mind that Cleveland is quite a ways from the hardest-hit areas on the East Coast. Photo of the Night Fresh from inking his new deal, David Ortiz showed up for the Celtics' home opener. The Celts' play Friday night ought remind him of another Boston sports franchise. Quote of the Night "We got to win this week. We know it and we're going to. ... We need to win now. That's what we're going to do. I know the record (3-4) is not what we want it to be, but the ball is bouncing strange ways. When that thing starts evening out, we're going to be great, and we're going to keep playing."--Rob Ryan, taking a page out of his brother's playbook and guaranteeing a Cowboys' win against a perfect 7-0 Falcons squad Tweet of the Night In the business of journalism, this is what we call "aggregation." BREAKING: Now I'm reporting that everyone on Twitter is reporting the NYC Marathon has been cancelled — Eric Stangel (@EricStangel) November 2, 2012 Video of the Night The AHL's Abbotsford Heat scored two goals in just three seconds on Thursday night. Keep in mind that the NHL record is four seconds.
