Again this week, I thought I’d skip the bullet points and just send you the email I sent to Scott the night before the podcast. Wherever we end up is based on this email and the conversation that ensues. We ended up talking about concussions in football, Tribe attendance and any number of other topics including some from my Sunday night email below. ————– I’d love to spend some time talking about a packed pre-season game in a dome with cheerleaders and their fans wearing irrelevant jerseys. Because they’ve been so good for so long, save one bad year, even their dead jerseys aren’t embarrassing. Dwight Freeney is gone but they still wear his jersey. Jeff Saturday is retired, but he was well represented. Peyton Manning, of course. Edgerrin James. Meanwhile I saw a Tim Couch jersey on the way in. Took a photo for evidence as if anyone would question it. As for the game itself… Brandon Weeden stares down receivers. He’s going to get Jordan Cameron murdered this season. I’d love to know your thoughts from TV. I feel like I missed a lot from being live. Josh Cribbs cut by the Raiders. Is this the end for Mr. Cribbs? Now that he’s not on the Browns anymore it makes it easier to be sympathetic toward him. Just a perfect example of how brutal the NFL is when it spits out 30 year olds, even if they have made a nice amount of money first. It isn’t Cleveland related, but Mark Sanchez and the Jets have been a favorite topic of mine for years now. I’m guessing you’re close enough to that team (geographically) that you might have a take or two about Rex Ryan and all that went down this weekend. I can’t help but get some interest out of the fact that Sanchez was the Browns’ slotted pick and now MoMass threatens Braylon Edwards’ roster spot in NYJ-land. Love that team for all the wrong reasons. I know it’s unbecoming to pump yourself up by dragging others down, but it’s sports. Indians 1.5 back of the wild card as I type this. A’s headed to Detroit. Indians have ATL, DET, BAL and NYM. I’m still disappointed that they didn’t do more at the deadline than Zep-Chin-Ski, and I didn’t get to watch a ton of live action this weekend, but I’m really focused on the Tribe anyway. I go back and forth between loving it and feeling salty that they haven’t addressed enough needs. I think it might be me and not them at this point. And then I don’t think it’s my fault at all. I’m pretty schizophrenic about my feelings for the Tribe. That’s all I’m thinking of right now, but driving 6 hours to Indy on Friday and 6 hours back on Sunday with two kids is a pretty good reason why I might have missed a big topic.
