Browns Training Camp: A new shade of Camouflage?

The 2015 Cleveland Browns unexpectedly unveiled new uniforms on the field during Training Camp, and they were a huge shift from uniforms of the past. No, not the regular season changes that were announced months ago. Those were a slight change in the hue of orange with an updated font and some small style changes. Unlike those kits, the Browns Training Camp uniforms are a dramatic...

More on Baseball’s Integration, the Tribe’s Larry Doby and Beyond

Here and elsewhere, Indians outfielder and race pioneer Larry Doby was celebrated. A deserving man who graces Cooperstown and who is now honored by a statue at Progressive Field, Doby nevertheless appears likely to remain an underrated figure. Cleveland, at least, has finally begun to appreciate Doby’s experience in baseball. But when the Indians signed him, how was the process...

Ray Farmer says relationship with Mike Pettine is great

Is the consternation a tad overblown? Cleveland Browns general manager Ray Farmer addressed the local media on Friday morning and, if what he says is accurate, any portrayal of discord between he and head coach Mike Pettine is nothing but a media-fueled narrative. “[Things are] great,” said Farmer of his relationship with his head coach. “The guy doesn’t invite you to his...

Muni Lot meets Playhouse Square: A review of Dawg Pounded

If you’re going to see Dawg Pounded, the original play written by Cleveland native Tim Tyler, you have to think about your plus-one. I suppose you could go with anyone, but only a certain type of person will properly understand and appreciate the show. You need someone who knows the history. You need someone knows the heartbreak. You need someone who responds to tales of Browns...

Gilbert Arenas on LeBron: He’s not a No. 1 option

by Josh Poloha Former Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas has not played in a game since 2012 (and is still somehow getting paid, but that’s beside the point), but he still has his fair share of opinions on the NBA.

No more baseball, coach? A simple, poignant question amid the flurry of medals, adulation, and reflection upon the conclusion of a Teeball Little League season. A four-year-old player on my team had realized that the celebration came at a harrowing cost; no more baseball. His eyes enlarged, reddened, and finally allowed streams of teardrops to traverse his cheeks as his head drooped...
