Billion-dollar franchises and your brain on empty calories: While We’re Waiting…

Another year, another disastrous ending to the Cleveland Browns’ season, and another offensive coordinator to blame for the team’s struggles. Let’s hope new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo lasts longer than a campaign for city council. Sweet Moses, do I see trendy culinary treats moving into right field?

Bill Simmons Still Trolls Doc Rivers on Austin Rivers Trade

Bill Simmons the life long Celtics fan is still pissed off at Doc Rivers for being hired by the Celtics, and then walking away from the franchise as well.   If you don’t remember, Simmons scoffed at Rivers some 15 months after he was hired.

Bill Simmons takes jab at Skip Bayless

  Skip Bayless caused plenty of controversy when he recklessly called Johnny Manziel a liar and an alcoholic on First Take.  Of course, ESPN did nothing to discipline their golden child for publicly spouting such wild and dangerous allegations because Skip Bayless is secretly the most powerful man at ESPN. Well, thankfully someone at ESPN is aware of the double standards with...

Is Skip Bayless the most powerful man at ESPN?

It was Pitt the Elder who once said “Unlimited power is apt to corrupt the minds of those who possess it” in the 18th century.  If Pitt the Elder were around today, he wouldn’t say those words about any dictator, president, or king.  No, they would be most appropriate to describe the way a 63 year old sportswriter has run amok at the self-proclaimed worldwide leader in sports...

Does God Hate Cleveland? While We’re Waiting…

Another year, another disaster of a Browns season. It’s difficult to remember, but the Browns were 7-4 following a last-second victory over the Atlanta Falcons on November 23. A team can practically backwards somersault into the playoffs from 7-4! Instead, the Browns have gone a stupefying 0-4 since the Falcons victory, limping towards the December finish line yet again.

ESPN’s Twitter suspensions are ultimately pointless

When you were a kid, did your mom ever take away your favorite video game? Were you initially annoyed that your time with the game was taken away? Probably, but you eventually got over it and just threw on some other game or just relaxed and played Madden for a few hours, right? It’s hard not to see Twitter suspensions like that. We’ve seen them happen a lot in recent years,...
