And here we go again…
Just days after making their awful 2012 debut the Browns travel to Green Bay to take on the Packers tonight in what will probably turn into a blood bath. That’s not to say that I don’t have any faith in the Browns and their ability to score and prevent points. It has more to do with the Packers and the fact that they have Aaron Rodgers. Game over.

Tonight the NBA will hold its annual NBA Draft Lottery to determine the drafting position of the teams that miss the playoffs. For anyone who paid attention last year, the Cavs pulled off some miracle odds, won the #1 overall pick with the pick they got from the Clippers along with the #4 overall pick, and began the process of reshaping the franchise for years to come. The Cavs drafted Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson, hope for the future had been restored, and Nick Gilbert went legend in Cleveland.
Can they repeat the magic from last year? They’re sure as hell going to try. The same crew will attend tonight including Dan Gilbert and his sons, Nick will be the team representative wearing the same clothes as last season, and Bernie Kosar, Josh Cribbs, Joe Haden, and Kyrie Irving will all be tagging along for luck. Here’s hoping for another lucky bounce of the ball.
So just when we think things can’t possibly get any worse, the Browns go and pull of a stunt like this…
And totally redeem themselves!
The Browns won yesterday reminding all of us what it feels like to actually win an NFL game. It was close and came down the final play of the game, but all that matters is they got the W. So what if they nearly sent half of their fan base into cardiac arrest on that final drive and tried to find another agonizing way to lose a football game. They won and we can all bask in the glory that is a victory Monday. Continue reading
I’ll be in Virgina/D.C. for a wedding starting tomorrow, so here is my preview for Browns vs. Raiders.
This week’s game against the Raiders should be quite interesting. First off, the Browns are coming off of the bye week. A bye week that was badly needed given the way the team had played the previous two weeks and the gradually degrading locker room atmosphere. Second, this will be the first home game for the Raiders following the death of iconic and long-time owner, Al Davis.
Davis’ legacy as the leader of the Raiders since way back in the pre-merger days will serve as an emotional back drop to a game that just a few weeks ago held Kameron Wimbley versus his old team as the lone provocative headline. I would say that’s a pretty decent upgrade for those who enjoy the pageantry of sports. Continue reading
