Indiana Fever: Cavs vs. Pacers Behind the Box Score

Whenever the Cavaliers have went to Indiana over the last half-decade, they have been met with crushing defeat. Tonight, it was pretty expected and explained away by the absence of both Kyrie Irving (shoulder) and LeBron James (rest, back). But still, Indiana remains a very rough place for the Cavaliers as they lost their tenth straight in Indianapolis as the shorthanded Cavs had...

Baseball is fine, but MLB could use some tweaks (Part 1)

Baseball is not broken. Baseball is as beautiful a sport as it has ever been. The art of hitting a baseball with an elongated, rounded bat has amazingly persevered through the generations as something that is worth attempting. The drama that builds during crucial games is incredible as every single pitch can have more meaning than the last one. And, the ability to watch the rest...

Cleveland Sports Championship Watch

Sports fans and their accompanying websites become so wrapped up in the day-to-day happenings, stories, games, goings-on, quips, statements, and logo changes, that they often lose track of the big picture. It’s easy to become so focused on the details and the minutiae of the sports life cycle that the global perspective becomes lost entirely — everyone knows that tired cliché...

Should the Browns draft a receiver in round one? While We’re Waiting

It’s Friday and I’m writing this one really early because I have plans on Thursday night. I have no idea if the Cavs or Buckeyes won their games last night, but I’ll try and entertain you for a bit while you, you know, wait… To receiver or not to receiver… Obviously the Browns need to do something at wide receiver this year. The question is whether or not they should...

No Splash Zone: Cavs vs. Warriors Behind the Box Score

Certain regular season games just mean more. The Cavaliers have been on an absolute roll, but many wanted to see them square up against a fellow title-contending team out of the Western Conference as a more recent measuring stick. Well, Thursday night at the Q, fans received just that as the NBA’s best team at the moment and for most of the season, the Golden State Warriors, came...

Breaking Down CSU’s Shot at the Conference Title

Despite a boneheaded headline suggesting the contrary―seriously, who writes this crap?―the Cleveland State Vikings will play Friday night for a share of the Horizon League regular season title and the top seed in the Horizon League tournament. It looked as though CSU’s loss to Milwaukee would take them out of the title picture, as all powerhouse Valparaiso (then 25-4) needed...

Todd McShay upgrades the Browns selections to DeVante Parker and Ereck Flowers in latest mock

In the last installment of Todd McShay’s mock draft, we were treated to a possible worst case scenario of drafting a project RT and an inconsistent WR-TE hybrid with our two 1st round selections.1 Thankfully, in the post-combine update to his mock draft, those choices are no longer given to the Browns even though he still has us selecting the same positions. In his latest mock...

Discussing a few potential Browns free agents

One of the more frustrating things that happens this time of year is the window shopping of free agents for the Cleveland Browns. It’s just too enticing to look at a name — usually one you know — and think about how it slots into the depth chart of the Cleveland Browns. There’s a reason that free agency is one of the least efficient ways to build an NFL football team. Obviously...

Cavs offense is keeping it 100 (and counting): Cavalier Film Room

When I last materialized in the film room dimension, it was to share the good news about the Cleveland Cavaliers’ newfound rim protection in Timofey Mozgov. This time, we’re going back to the offensive side of the basketball. The wine and gold have been on fire of late as evidenced by their 17-2 clip in their last 19 games, but it goes well beyond that.

Mediocre Quarterback Sampling

As lifelong fans of the Cleveland Browns, I feel as though many of us are connoisseurs of mediocre-to-bad quarterbacking. We have sampled so many different types of these quarterbacks that we often can properly assess them and see the differences between them, while a New England or Indianapolis fan would just shrug them off as a bad quarterback. Instead, we can taste the mild difference...

Browns considering former Buckeye Ted Ginn Jr

According to multiple reports, Whitner has been in talks with head coach Mike Pettine about adding the veteran receiver to the team, with Ginn Jr.’s ties extending to Cleveland and Ohio...
