It sure takes a while for the locals to figure things out.
All the ink now is negative on the Red Sox. Following the expose' of David Price's apparently team-backed vulgar rant against broadcast analyst Dennis Eckersley, there's been nothing but red ink. It's deserved. Eck is hailed as perhaps the only honest local analyst in a hermitically-sealed media chamber where John Henry owns the TV outlet and one Boston newspaper, plus has his employees sprinkled into spo...Read Full Post »

Seems the word in Cleveland for not one, but now TWO of our sports team is dyfunctional.
I'd say after Kyrie, is DISS function. Again, another sports star takes a dump on Cleveland and her most loyal and passionate fan base. Lebron has always held us hostage. Jim Thome left us for more $$$ and got a statue at Jacobs Field. Browns players leave the team and tell the world they are relieved.
As one of those most passion...Read Full Post »

I grew up with a guy we called Ghost. He was red-haired and freckled, and had to avoid sun or turn into a lobster, hence "Ghost." He went to BC undergrad, then law school. He spent a lot of time in Boston. In fact, the front page photo when the Red Sox won the pennant in 1967 (when we were still in high school) featured him and others holding Jim Lonborg on their shoulders. Two years later at Woodstock, he would manage to somehow end up on the album cover. He's clearly visible, ba...Read Full Post »

You don't remember him but I do. His name was Gene Conley, and he passed away at 86. Who was this guy, you ask?
He was an amazing athlete. To me, he was the sub center for the Boston Celtics at their peak, winning 3 rings. He was no small part of it. Russell called him the meanest player he ever played against, and he played against him every day in practice. Johnny Most dubbed him Jumpin' Gene. In the 1959-60 season, with probably the best team Boston ever put o...Read Full Post »

A day before the 4th, we're close enough to the actual halfway point for jazz. Some are at 81 games, some over, some under. So it begs the obligatory summary. How do the divisions look? Predictably not as unpredictable as perhaps a month ago, but still with some surprises.
ALE: John Farrell blessed the Red Sox with his absence for a couple of games this past week and the team responded predictably, playing their best ball of the season so far. They opened a 3-gam...Read Full Post »

70+ games into the season, we've just over a week to go before we hit the halfway mark. What do the divisions look like? Why? How? Got my opinions on the Red Sox, maybe you've got some on your guys. Or on anybody.
ALE: The surprising Yankees, despite a recent slump, still sit in first place --- by a percentage (as in per-mil) point. The underperforming Red Sox sit in second. But even the sagging O's and ever-disappointing Jays are within 6 games of the top, with ...Read Full Post »

After watching two sluggish teams, things seem to be heading in the right direction...
Yesterday was a good day for Cleveland Sports.....
The BIGGEST COMEBACK in NBA History, with a SuperStar that had 41 points, 13 Rebounds and 12 Assists, passing Kobe on the scoring post-season list and Wes Unseld on the rebounding, notching his 17th post season DT, plus playing in the 4th WITHOUT Kryie and Kevin! They played D! They Woke Up!!! Plus, th...Read Full Post »

FINALLY! My Cavs got their act together, and played like a team that is defending a Championship! I thought Boston would win and win BIG! The Cavs have played disinterested, (or bored)? for awhile and the Celts crept up on us and the Eastern Conference lead. They have come to play and beat us in the past. I wasnt really looking forward to last night's game. It was a surprise to see that not only did we win, but we handed them a big can of Whoop *** too!...Read Full Post »

Yes, you read that right. I’m optimistic. We in Cleveland are optimistic. As you know from our history, that’s not how we usually are. However, I am optimistic about ALL of my sports teams! Imagine that! In Cleveland!
The most amazing feeling is about the Browns. Yep, those Browns. The cant draft, can’t assess talent, can’t keep a front office, can’t pick Veterans, have no QB and basically stink Browns. ...Read Full Post »

ONLY IN CLEVELAND FOLKS!
Bogut breaks his leg within ONE MINUTE of playing!
Are you kidding me? Seriously?
It's the Curse! It's the Curse! Cleveland is cursed! People have underestimated us in the past and we'll come through! The way the Cavs have been playing is making one reconsider that right now!
I wanna be Rad. I wanna be Rad! If my baseball team doesnt win, then my foo...Read Full Post »
