LATEST STORIES FROM WAITING FOR NEXT YEAR

Buckeyes Head to Happy Valley

Everything seems to be dropping these days. Undefeated teams fall through the standings, trees shed their leaves, and temperatures dip across Big Ten country. It officially feels like fall, and the Ohio State Buckeyes are deep into the heart of a season of restored hope. This weekend brings what should be the Buckeyes’ stiffest road test to date as they travel to Penn State. While...

Anderson Varejao to start at center for Cavs

While plenty of mystery surrounds Cleveland’s opening night tilt against the New York Knicks, one thing has been revealed: Anderson Varejao will be the Cavaliers’ starting center. Cavs head coach David Blatt had tinkered with the idea of starting Tristan Thompson at the center spot and brining Varejao off of the bench. Both players had flourished in various capacities alongside...

Best Bets: Cavs Props for the 2014-15 Season

We’ve got good news and bad news, Cavs fans. The good news: The NBA regular season is nearly upon us, and we will soon experience the joy of watching the team from our collective dreams come to life to play basketball. The bad news: There’s only a few more precious days to speculate and heap conjecture upon guesswork over what will happen this basketball season. Even the greatest...

Justin Timberlake courtside and Jay Z and Beyonce rumored

The Cavaliers’ opener next Thursday is going to be star-studded. We already heard that Kendrick Lamar and Kevin Hart will be at the pre-game party, but now we know a couple of stars who are rumored to have secured swanky seats at LeBron James’ first regular season game back in Cleveland with the Cavaliers. Rumor has it that Justin Timberlake has already secured his seats alongside...

Of Paul Brown and Radio Helmets

In eighth grade, I was an interior lineman for the football team. Meaning, I wasn’t very gifted at throwing, catching, or running with the ball. I was the football equivalent of the baseball Little Leaguer you would hide over in right field. That was fine. I was just happy to be in the game. When playing defense, I knew from experience I had little chance of penetrating the backfield...

Quicken Loans Arena PA announcer Olivier Sedra presided over the show, celebrating Cavs fandom and ginning up even more enthusiasm for the coming season. The meeting included a lot of cheap heat—fans beckoned to stand and cheer, t...

Watch Aaron Craft singing Party in the USA… badly

Why? I debated even posting this because it’s not funny so much as chill-inducing. Aaron Craft was at the Golden State Warriors’ “Open Practice” for the fans last night and (insert some joke about singing and practice.) If you don’t get embarrassed easily, you can watch the clip below. Oh yeah. He was also dressed as a bear… I think. Aaron Craft gettin’ down to Party...

Browns QB “problems,” optimism as philosophy and Pompeii… While We’re Waiting

It’s Friday. It’s been a long week since the Browns lost to the Jags. Here’s hoping things turn up from here. The idea that the Browns have “problems” with their QB situation… I’ve heard a lot of talk this week about Johnny Manziel and whether or not it’s possible to regret that draft pick already. The feeling seems to be that we’ve seen Blake Bortles, we’re about...

Seahawks sign former Browns linebacker to be fullback

When the Browns cut Ray Agnew recently, it was surmised on Twitter by some that the Browns were making a move so that they could protect Kiero Small from being plucked from their practice squad. It was suggested to me by someone (sorry, can’t remember who but I think it was a member of the DraftBrowns crew) that Seattle was the team targeting the Browns’ practice squad fullback...

LeBron James Beats by Dre billboard goes up in downtown Cleveland

Downtown Cleveland is going to be all LeBron everything before the year is all said and done. Most of us have already seen the “RE-ESTABLISHED 2014″ Beats by Dre commercial featuring James and the city of Akron as it was prominently featured all weekend during football and posted here on Sunday afternoon. Well now anyone who finds there way near The Q downtown will have a pretty...

Michael Brantley, Yan Gomes finalists for Gold Glove Award

How much do advanced analytics or team-wide defensive struggles factor in to Gold Glove nominations? Not as much as one would think as Cleveland Indians left fielder Michael Brantley and catcher Yan Gomes have been named as finalists for the 2014 award at their respective positions. The team’s press release touts Gomes has having only committed three errors in his final 55 games...

Kevin Love discusses trade, Cavs’ team flight to Rio

The latest piece to be published by Derek Jeter’s new journalistic venture, The Players’ Tribune, is from the byline of one Cleveland Cavalier power forward, Kevin Love. Titled “How I spent my summer vacation,” Love details his offseason of rumors, speculation, working out, and binge watching what amounts to nearly the entire catalog of Netflix. I spent most of my summer...

NFL trade deadline might be a lost cause

You get the feeling that the NFL would love to pump up their trade deadline, but as Greg Garber points out at ESPN, reluctance rules the day. It’s the only thing in a nearly 365-day NFL year that the league hasn’t been able to turn into an event. There are some examples of deals that occur in-season every year like Trent Richardson last year or Percy Harvin this year, but they...

Video: Andrew Hawkins kicks son out of house for calling AJ Green his favorite player

Looking for yet another reason to love Andrew Hawkins? The Cleveland Browns wide receiver posted a video to his Instgram account that features him booting his two-year-old son from his house for referring to AJ Green as his favorite player. Greeen (and Mohamed Sanu), obviously, were teammates of Hawkins when the shifty slot receiver played in Cincinnati. The tongue-in-cheek production...

Peace out, Preseason Basketball: Chad Zumock

With the 2014-15 NBA season right around the corner, the national media is hitting the gas pedal on the “hype-machine” when it comes to this year’s newly formed Cleveland Cavaliers team. Ernie Johnson and the rest of TNT gang, Kendrick Lamar, and Kevin Hart have already RSVP’d for the October 30 home opener and Sports Illustrated went ahead and made the so-called “Big...

Cleveland Browns Week 7 Film Room

The Cleveland Browns had what was arguably their worst game of the year when they lost to previously winless Jacksonville Jaguars this past Sunday. The Browns could not muster a touchdown versus a Jaguars defense giving up 30.8 points per game in the first six games of the season—this while being the benefactor of multiple turnovers. The Browns defense kept the team in the game...

Watch Kyrie Irving pass between his legs to Kevin Love

LeBron James didn’t play last night’s pre-season game in order to rest, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t without highlights thanks to Shawn Marion, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love. Shawn Marion intercepted a pass and started a 3-on-1 fast break starring himself, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love. There was a day and age where The Matrix would have soared through the air to catch an...

Reflections on LeBron’s meaning to Akron: While We’re Waiting…

It’s almost here. Next Thursday, the Cleveland Cavaliers begin the much-hyped 2014-15 NBA regular season with LeBron James back in wine and gold. The preseason is now over. The real games begin soon. It’s a pretty surreal time to be a fan of Northeast Ohio professional basketball. It’s perhaps even more surreal to be amid the subset of Cavs fans from Akron that grew up with...

Brian Hoyer: Regression to the Mean

Too often, it seems, Cleveland sports fans pine for the next hero to lead them to a championship.  And, I’m not talking about any bandwagon fans who only root for the Browns because the Johnny Manziel Show came to town. I’m looking at the hardcore Muni Lot-tailgating, Bernie Kosar jersey-wearing, season-ticket holders who have endured the pain of not only losing games, but the...

NBA GM Survey: LeBron James, Cavs should be pretty good

The annual General Manager survey was released by the NBA and, as to be expected, the Cleveland Cavaliers have a fairly good showing. Though the majority of GMs think the San Antonio Spurs will repeat as NBA Champions, more than 70 percent of respondents believe that their opponent will be the Wine and Gold. Cavs forward LeBron James received plenty of accolades, garnering the majority...

Game Illustrated: Matthew Dellavedova

If you know me personally or have read more than 50 words I’ve written, then you already know that I am an unabashed sucker for players who hustle, especially on a basketball court. I paid tribute to Anderson Varejao’s hustle in the previous edition of Game Illustrated. Today, that honor goes to another foreign Cavalier I hold near and dear: Matthew Dellavedova. A pair of anecdotes...

Dion Waiters Named Co-Captain to the Triangle All-Stars

Dion Waiters has won his first and most dubious honor of the season: He was named co-captain, along with DeMarcus Cousins, of the Triangle All-Stars, which are described as “the people’s Dream Team — the crazy characters, untapped talents, and head cases who make the NBA our favorite thing to watch.” The Triangle is Grantland’s sports blog, and it is nothing if not...

Good Wednesday morning ya’ll…. It is my “offseason” here at WFNY, but it is good to have this space each week to get some quick views out to the masses. The Browns let me down big time Sunday, the Cavs are about to begin their quest with LeBron 2.0 and to be honest, it is just not my thing. My beloved Wahoos will soon start their winter roster tinkering, but I don’t expect...

Indians ask fans about Wahoo, popular players in survey

It’s that time of year again and the Cleveland Indians want to know what their fans and season ticket holders think. Not a lot of surprising questions, per usual. The Indians once again asked about all their various uniforms and Chief Wahoo himself. They also asked for a ranking of the top five Cleveland Indians, which makes sense. One slight wrinkle though: They included manager...
