Welcome back to my feature about my hypothetical run as General Manager of my beloved Cleveland Browns. The first installment included me talking about making sure the front office created a clear-cut gameplan for the organization as well as making a couple brief points on some of the roster decisions for the upcoming season. This time around, I’m going to go more in-depth about free agency and the draft. Continue reading

One Season In Cleveland: If I Was In Charge

Cleveland stadium

Anyone who follows sports knows that there has been a huge whirlwind swirling over Lake Erie and the Cleveland Browns organization. From the outside looking in, owner Jimmy Haslem seems to have proven his ineptitude to run an NFL organization (I’m not going to speculate how inept his other business may or may not be run, but there is that question in my head). Since it seems that any Joe Schmoe halfwit fool can run the organization, I figured why not write about what I would do hypothetically if I was in charge of my beloved Browns. Continue reading

Bad Aces: Introduction Into Why I Play Poker

What is it that makes poker so alluring? Is it the game itself, the psychological warfare between tables full of people? Or is it simply the money one can obtain just by sitting at a table throwing a few measly chips around? Continue reading

Anthony’s Articulated Arguments: 30 Years Doesn’t Serve the Victims Justice!


“Jerry Sandusky is a GREAT man,” said absolutely no one following his sentencing Tuesday. For those that don’t remember, Sandusky is the Penn State assistant coach who was charged with 45 counts of child sexual abuse. Yes, that does bear repeating, Jerry Sandusky was charged with forty-five counts of child sexual abuse. Mr. Sandusky spent his glorious day of reckoning, where he learned he was sentenced to “no less than 30 years and more than 60 years” behind bars; pleading innocence, according to multiple articles.

Anthony’s Articulated Arguments: Best of the Worst: Ranking the NFL Teams That Never Won A Super Bowl


I’ve been lollygagging around trying to come up with some sort of decent article idea to write about. I’ve finally come up with an article (although “decent” can be debated) thanks in part to me going to Sears to get my car inspected (3 months after the inspection went dead I might add. Like I said, I’ve been slacking!). Continue reading

2012 Summer Olympics: Men’s USA Basketball Team Roster Set

US men's basketball team

When I woke up this morning, it dawned on me (and yes, I did wake up at dawn!) that the 2012 Summer Olympics are fast approaching. What made it evident was a picture of the Men’s USA Olympic Basketball Team that showed up on my Facebook newsfeed. Continue reading

Anthony’s Articulated Arguments: My 5 Favorite Movie/TV Quotes

Main character's of "The Sandlot"
Last night, while I was laying in my bed watching SportsCenter, Stuart Scott made a line reference from the HBO Series The Wire. It went something like “You come at the king, you best not miss!” He was also making reference to LeBron “King” James making a highlight play, which made me cringe because I’m a biased, bitter Cleveland Browns fan (as I will proudly state time and time again).

Anthony’s Articulated Arguments: 2012 NFL Draft: My Almost Traumatic Relapse

As a devout Cleveland Browns fan growing up, I quickly learned I will always have one thing to look forward to every year. That is, and always will be, the third weekend of April when the NFL Draft occurs. You could only imagine my joy when 8 o’clock rolled around on Thursday night, April 26th, with my cell phone glued to my hand as I was stuck at work playing the role of an “exuberant” shoe salesman.
