March 31, 2006

     In a river-related event, one of my co-workers has made it to the finals of the much-famed "Marriage Madness" on the Mike and Mike show on ESPN Radio.  Needless to say they are huge Cleveland sports fans, so they need your votes!  If they win, they get a ton of free sports related trips, cash, and a huge TV.  Plus, they will be representing the Browns, Cavs, and Indians to the rest of the nation.  Please lend them your support.

Z say:  AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH! Little late on this one, but congrats to the Zydrunaliers for clinching the playoffs!  Nice to see Z getting to the promised land after years of having to play with Trajan Langdon, Tractor Traylor, and broken feet.


CC IS HUNGRY

     We’re about 48 hours away from the opening day for the Indians and the rest of baseball, so I figured this would be as good a time as any to jump right in and start posting.  I don’t know how I feel about this team this year.  You take a team that won 93 games a year ago, strip them of their best pitcher and most of the bullpen, and then add on lesser players?  Especially since they’ve been telling us for 3 years that “when the time comes we will open up the checkbook.”  How many wins do we have to get before we’re officially in contention?  I think we’re still a year away thanks to our off-season frugality, and so I’m betting we don’t make the playoffs again.  Keep in mind we we’re virtually injury-free last year, and we rode so many youngsters who had tremendous seasons. 

     I think this will be yet another ‘wait till next year’ year, which is unfortunate given the amount of talent that they have brought up.  The only saving grace could come in the form of a July trade–but again, Dolan is going to have to dip in to the ‘time is right’ fund and pony-up.  Let the marathon begin…

PREDICTIONS? 


For Real This Time

So after much tinkering around with some other blog services, looks like I'll be staying with this one after all.  Expect regular posting very soon….


Browns Finally Get It

     Well chalk up the total of Cleveland teams that get the fact that you have to actually spend money in order to make progress in the off-season to one.  How was that for the first 24 hours of free-agency!  5 players signed on the first two days, including a two-time Pro Bowler, and a guy who has 3 rings.  Not to mention all the Cleveland ties they have to the area.  LeCharles Bentley made it extremely clear that it was his main goal to get back to Cleveland, probably more so that any player since Bernie Kosar.

     This has already been one of the most productive off-seasons in a Cleveland team’s recent memory.  With that said you would think it would be a big deal in the Cleveland media, but it was mostly overshadowed by the Cavs loss to the Heat, and random stories Winter Haven about guys who probably won’t see the light of day for the Tribe.  Had the Browns lost 5 free agents yesterday it probably would have made the cover along with a side-piece outlining Clevland sports worst losses to free agency. 

Of course, this post probably won’t get read, mainly because I haven’t told anyone about this site.  Your thoughts?


Anybody There?

Well you shouldn’t be!  This site isn’t finished so go somewhere else.  But please come back in a week or so.  And tell your friends.


Can Your River Do This?

 Big River keep on burning...

     To begin with, this blog isn’t about the environment, it’s about sports.  Sports in Cleveland to be exact.  I figured the best way to describe sports in this city was by through the event that probably captures the essence of the city more than anything–the Cuyahoga River catching on fire.  Seriously, how does water catch on fire anyway?  Who fumbles a yard from the Super Bowl?  See where i’m goig with this?
