Shiva Season: Week 3 Must Have Stars and Diamond Players

NFL 2014 Wallpaper

Different variations of the old adage “You don’t know what you have until it’s gone,” kept popping into my head this week. With all the dumbassery (props to the Lex and Terry show for that word) that has come out not just this week, but all season about football players at both the college (Jameis Winston) and pro level (Ray Rice, Ray McDonald, Adrian Peterson), it just seemed like a fitting phrase. Not to mention the injuries that piled up in week 2 for many teams.

I make no bones about the fact that football season is my favorite time of year. It gives a special sense of optimism that ultimately turns into despair that only the truest of Browns fans can endure yet enjoy. It also brings about a lot of enthusiastic fantasy players creating the ultimate team. For many, it’s not just football season. No sir, this is Shiva Season. (Thank you FX for creating The League!)

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

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
