LATEST STORIES FROM WAITING FOR NEXT YEAR

Where’s Johnny?

In light of Brian Hoyer leading the Browns’ game-winning drive and Johnny Manziel’s three plays leaving us with a very “…that’s it?” feeling, it would be easy to assume that the Johnny Football attention train is losing steam.  Hoyer is the starter, the Browns’ D is playing well, and Mike Pettine is the coach we’ve been looking for.  It’s easy to forget about...

Week 2 Film Room: The Defense

The Cleveland Browns defense versus the New Orleans Saints had a pretty good performance when you consider that it was up against one of the most dangerous units in the league. The Browns won their first game of the season on Sunday with a dramatic 26-24 win over the New Orleans Saints large in part to the defense being able to hold the Saints to only 10 first-half points. The...

“C” is for “Cookie”, Good Enough for Me

8:11 PM – I was about to suggest that if the Indians hadn’t given up on this season, neither should we. After all, I was just reminded of a recap I wrote last year that prematurely declared the Indians’ playoff hopes dead.  Anything can happen when you’ve got a team fighting for its life, and no one should know that better than we, especially after the 10-game winning streak...

Joe Banner discusses Brian Hoyer and trading Trent Richardson

We’ve already discussed Joe Banner’s Twitter account on these pages. Many still won’t even believe it’s the real deal, preferring to assume like many other accounts that @JoeBanner13 is a fake. Anyway, this morning Mr. Banner recounted what it was like one year ago today when he traded Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts. a year ago today spent much of the night on...

Generous Cavs Fans, LeBron’s Hairline, and Reading Recommendations… While We’re Waiting

Good morning, Cleveland and Clevelandphiles! I hope all of you in The Land have a wonderful Thursday. So. You’re aware of Cavs Zine, yes? The Bible of Cavs Fandom? Of course, of course. No doubt you’ve heard that, for our fifth zine, we’re taking it up a notch and 3D printing championship rings. Hubris? Perhaps. But not for nothing, this is the first time we’ll have a Cavs...

Local radio, and Joe Banner love with Joe Lull – WFNY Podcast – 2014-09-17

I’ve been a guest of Joe Lull’s (@lullonsports) on his radio progrum on 92.3 the Fan and for whatever reason I never asked him to come on the podcast. I sometimes feel like guys who talk sports for a living would be doing me a favor to come on the podcast. Anyway, that ended today as Joe came on to tell us a little about where the hell he came from and his perspective as a host...

Spencer Lanning drives a Toyota Tundra, appears on Men in Blazers

Spencer Lanning has had an interesting couple of weeks on the football field with the Cleveland Browns. He found himself kicked in the face against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Then, he accidentally became a running back hurtling through the air and getting crushed by the New Orleans Saints’ defensive line on a botched extra point. Things are looking up for week three, as Lanning was...

Nike LeBron 12 officially released

The long awaited official release of the LeBron 12 finally took place. After months of speculation and leaked images, Nike invited a slew of people out to their campus at Beaverton where they would all raise the curtain on the 12th edition of LeBron James’ signature line. Designed to enhance LeBron’s explosiveness while combining three key benefits—superior cushioning, harnessed...

T-Wolves to hype Andrew Wiggins with “Midnight Madness” dunk contest

Someday Andrew Wiggins might be little more than the answer to a Cleveland Cavaliers trivia question, but not yet. A quick Summer League stint with the Cavaliers after being drafted first overall, and he was off to Minnesota for Kevin Love, as you all know. The T-Wolves, for their part, seem to be reacting pretty well to the trade and are making the most of their presumptive star...

Is a LeBron James banner returning to downtown Cleveland?

It feels like just yesterday that Clevelanders were standing outside of the Sherwin-Williams building while construction workers dismantled the giant LeBron James banner that adorned it’s side for years. Not long after, we all celebrated the arrival of a brighter, more city-focused banner that replaced that which only praised one man. But times, they apparently change. The Sherwin...

Edulging in the spoils of a Cleveland Browns win

I woke up Sunday morning with a strong hunger in my belly. For starters, it had been nine months since the Cleveland Browns hosted a meaningful game at FirstEnergy Stadium. Nine months is a long time. Ask all of those fans who got prematurely excited when the Browns sat at 4-5 during last year’s bye week just how much can happen over the course of nine months. Nonetheless, the...

Cavs Zine 5 is printing championship rings

The Cavs Zine is something that we here at WFNY have long been behind. Several writers at the site have contributed work to previous Zines and overall, I think I can speak for the site when I say we just love the whole project. This year, however, like everything else in Cleveland Cavs-land, the stakes are much higher. The Zine is fixing to release it’s fifth edition, aptly...

Ric Bucher predicts Cavs will finish fourth in the East

It’s prediction season for the NBA. The offseason is largely decided, so now everyone’s slotting teams. So do the Cleveland Cavaliers take the top spot in the East? Long-time New York Times scribe Howard Beck gives them 57 wins. Ric Bucher, however, says that despite having three of the top 20 players in the league, they’ll finish fourth behind the Chicago Bulls, Washington...

The Browns final drive, and hoping for momentum

It would be great if the Cleveland Browns could be a dominating force that never trails in any game they play, but that’s just not the way the NFL works. Football in the NFL is a game of inches, seconds, leverage, pounds and temperature. Oftentimes, whichever team finishes a game or season hottest will win it all. Over the course of two straight games, the Browns have shown an...

Is Tristan Thompson a “skilled NBA mooch?”

I don’t know if you noticed this summer, but Kyrie Irving got paid—handsomely. The man selected three spots later at number four is still waiting. Zach Lowe decided to look at potential bank breakers in the NBA and Tristan Thompson made his list. No single player will benefit more than Thompson from this summer’s wild roster movement. Thompson’s third season was a depressing...

Corey Kluber makes Cy Young case with 14 strikeouts in win

This just in. Corey Kluber is good a baseball. While Opening Day starter, Justin Masterson, was a complete and utter flop and later traded to St. Louis at the deadline, the Tribe’s number two turned himself into not just the ace of the staff, but a Cy Young candidate in the process. Kluber is flat out special. What we have seen from him this year may be even more impressive than...

A trick play, an interesting fact and stepping aside …While We’re Waiting

Perhaps you’ve seen this making the rounds. Arkansas State tried a fake punt against Miami. It was one of the least successful fake punts you will ever see. The first time you watch it, you will of course follow the path of the ball and see what a terrible pass it is. After the first viewing, turn your attention to the receivers at the bottom of the screen. That was hilarious...

Cedar Point announces partnership with LeBron James

When Cedar Point promised to name a roller coaster after LeBron James if he were to return to Cleveland, odds are they did not factor in the costs of placing the name of one of the world’s biggest personal brands on a plot of intertwined steel. Alas, roughly 10 weeks after The Essay was penned, the Sandusky, Ohio amusement park held to their promise—but with a slight amendment...

Cavs NBA 2K15 Player Rankings Leaked

Basketball-based video games in Cleveland are once again shaping up to be pretty fun.

Now, thanks to Cavs Nation, we allegedly have leaked player rankings for the entire Cleveland Cavaliers roster. LeBron James: 98 Kevin Love: 89 Kyrie Irving: 88 Dion Waiters...

What Mike Miller Means to the Wine and Gold The Cleveland Cavaliers’ roster has been completely overhauled this summer, with more potential moves on the horizon (where art thou, Ray Allen?). LeBron’s return and the Kevin Love trade are obviously the biggest stories, but the team has smartly filled out the roster with established veterans who have playoff experience, like Shawn...

Browns vs. Saints: Behind the Box Score

For just the second time since returning in 1999, the Cleveland Browns found a way to win their home opener. The fates finally seemed to turn in the favor of the team who so often finds every way to lose—especially at home. “The Factory of Sadness” would have wait another week to open its door because on Sunday the Browns made the plays they had to in order to knock off...

Can Corey Kluber win the AL Cy Young?

Having the luxury of watching Corey Kluber pitch on a weekly basis has been one of the few fortunate occurrences of the 2014 MLB season. Kluber has endeared himself to Cleveland on the mound (where he’s been nearly unhittable) and off of it where he spearheads memes about teammates (Scott Atchison is so old…). And while Kluber has shown Cy Young qualities throughout the season...

Tribe bats non-existent in fourth straight loss

The Indians—oh my beloved Cleveland Indians. They are teetering on the brink of bad and boring. Well, at least the offense is. We have seen one solid pitching performance go by the wayside too many times since the All-Star break. This time it was spot starter Zach McAllister who did all he could to keep his team in the game while the bats offered little run support in a 3-1 loss...
