On the day after what may be remembered as one of the darkest days for many, I finally found time to have my first guest ever. Errick Greenlee is not just a son, brother, husband, father, or purveyor of all things nerd fresh. He’s not just a writer or filmmaker. He’s not just the king of the Lightning Round or his #GoingInRaw column for KillerBoomBox. Nor is he just one half of a dynamic t-shirt designing duo. In addition to that glistening resume, Errick Greenlee is a professional wrestling fan. And nothing was the same.
So we start to fantasy book the WWE until SummerSlam and already, the ideas are flowing. Reigns, Styles, Rollins, Balor, Ziggler. Trust me, this is the phenomenal forearm of the fantasy booking; it’s that over. Plus we take the time to talk about Chyna and Prince. And this is only the first edition in what I hope will be many more appearances but Mr. Greenlee. Hold on to your butts.
It’s time I step away from my Browns articles and take a look at a team on the rise, the Oakland Raiders. They’ve been able to draft well in recent years, giving the team a solid young core to build their roster around. The Raiders were able to utilize Free Agency this offseason to truly complement that core unit. The team knew they had money to spend and they definitely weren’t frugal. Here’s an overview of what Oakland has done this offseason.
On a very special day, Hyphen Nation 9 is born into existence! Today’s topics include the 2nd birthday of my daughter Aaliyah (that’s the special day, take that smokers), my experiences as a “single” dad, why I’ve been so lazy creatively lately, the tough decision between my Android and becoming one of those iPhone users, and an update about those lifestyle changes I keep saying I’m going to make (the elephant scale at the Smithsonian Zoo wasn’t impressed). Plus: I predict the 2016 NBA Playoffs in their entirety. And I don’t care if you say it’s not fair to pick after they officially start. Besides, there are no surprises to be heard here.
This episode is all about the positive vibes so check that negativity at the door. Or to Yankee Stadium.
Last week, I talked about the Browns offseason up to this point. Since then the Browns released Donte Whitner, who was a starter for the team the previous two seasons. As the roster reconstruction continues, it brings about questions about what areas are the team going to address in the draft. What areas are of the utmost importance? What positions do they feel confident enough to not make an immediate change to? And how will those changes translate on the football field.
I wasn’t able to watch WrestleMania 32 live on Sunday night, so I avoided all social media and spent nearly five hours on Monday morning and afternoon watching on the WWE Network. This was literally the biggest WrestleMania ever. Held in the Dallas Cowboys stadium, WWE broke their all-time attendance record that was previously set at WrestleMania III. In 1987, Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant brought in 93,173. On April 3, 2016, WWE brought in 101,763 fans from around the world.
According to many journalists, media people, and front office people in Cleveland, the Browns franchise is officially in a rebuilding mode. While I agree to an extent, I would argue more so that Cleveland never really had a true franchise to rebuild. They are merely just starting the first step that was never completed since the 1999 rebirth.
Weezer’s tenth studio album, the self-titled “White Album” will be released April 1. This will be their fourth untitled album with a color theme, after the blue, green, and red albums. And, yes, I’m sure they know another band back in the day previously released a self-titled “White Album.”
The Final Banana is for dancing. If you don’t like to dance, you’ll dance. If you like to dance, you’ll sweat. If you like to sweat, you need The Final Banana.

In this episode, everybody gets it! And by that I mean that I talk about how I hold grudges (I was taught by the best) and how it feels when Seinfeld loses his Newman (it feels pretty great). I also spend some time talking about being just one of the girls (people like talking to me. It’s a gift and a curse) and how I became enshrined in the Mario Kart Wii Hall of Fame (it’s a real thing. You can totally look it up. You’ll see a picture of my victims sad faces next to my name). I wrap things up by talking about how Steph Curry is having his moment and how I no longer lust after Little Caesar’s bacon wrapped pizza.
I may also be muttering under my breath at times. It was a rough week.
