The Cleveland Browns bye week is this Sunday and it allows and abundance of productivity to take place in the 0-12 team’s absence.
Here are three things to do while the Browns are idle Sunday afternoon:
1. Enjoy another game at the 1 pm slot?
Look, when the Browns are on– I have to watch. It’s ugly. It’s brutal. But I am a Browns Backer. But this week? I can pick whichever game I like, or the Redzone Channel for fantasy football purposes. In particular, I’ll keep my eyes on two games. The Chiefs play in Atlanta and the ‘Phins play the Ravens at 1 pm. I’m ready for a stress free Sunday.
2. Get some work done?
I mean, I’m a college student. No Cleveland Browns game on? I have work off, as well? Sounds like primetime for getting some work done. Procrastination will surely take place as the 1 pm games begin, but it is what it is. More work will be done without the Browns being active.
I don’t know. I usually fall asleep in the third or fourth quarter of each Browns game. The Chicago Bears and San Francisco Giants play at 1 pm? That’s the best alternative to a Browns’ Sunday I’ve ever heard. Matt Barkley v. Colin Kaepernick… the matchup of the weekend, as well as a great nap.
Peyton Manning facing off with Cam Newton seems to be the talk of Super Bowl 50. The thing is, they don’t lineup on the same side of the ball. The team that comes out on top will be the one best suited to take down the opposing defense. Continue reading “It’s Superman’s time to shine”
Conor McGregor was named Fighter of the Year at the 2016 World MMA Awards, but he couldn’t make it because he’s in training for his upcoming showdown with Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 197. Luckily, McGregor recorded his acceptance speech and was entertaining as always. Continue reading “Conor McGregor: “I’ve got to keep working, because yous bums don’t work””
The Cavaliers are nowhere near being a championship caliber team right now. If Wednesday’s road loss to the Kemba-less Hornets didn’t raise enough concern, tonight’s home loss to the Celtics should sound the alarm. Continue reading “Cavs searching for answers after loss to Celtics”
Super Bowl Sunday is fast approaching, but in the mean time I thought it would be fun to look back and reflect on the past. Not every Super Bowl has an iconic play, such as Malcom Butler’s interception at the goal line against the Seahawks last year. Some are just blowouts, a prime example would be the ‘Hawks drubbing of Denver in Super Bowl XLVIII (43-8). My top five Super Bowls focus both on late game heroics, and the significance/circumstances surrounding the result. Here they are in ascending order: Continue reading “Top 5 Super Bowls of the past 10 years”
The Fort Worth police report concerning Johnny Manziel’s alleged assault of ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley was released today, and it doesn’t look good: Continue reading “Police report: Manziel threatened, struck ex-girlfriend”
In honor of former NBA great Rasheed Wallace, every Wednesday we will revisit a ‘Sheed story/video etc. The all-time leader in technical fouls was always an entertaining character, but beloved by his teammates. There will never be another ‘Sheed Wallace. Continue reading “#WallaceWednesdays”
I have three friends visiting from Indiana this weekend to attend the Browns-Bengals matchup Sunday. Two of them happen to be Bengals fans, and I am beginning to question my decision to invite them as I preview the upcoming game. They are sitting pretty at 9-2, while we sit at 2-9. Sh*t talking will undoubtedly take place, coldly directed at my Cleveland friend and I. Continue reading “Resiliency and the Browns Fan”
As I sat down at my laptop tonight I was planning on penning a reactionary piece to my experience at Monday Night Football in Cleveland. My beloved Browns lost in heartbreaking fashion, but an alert flashed across my phone today that halted my anger at Austin Davis being named the team’s starter. Continue reading “A continued numbness to mass violence”
When Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones signed defensive end Greg Hardy, I silently wondered if a phenomena called “karma” would come into play. Hardy’s suspension was reduced to four games; significantly less than the initial punishment of ten, and Jerry was all smiles. Continue reading “Jerry Jones, Cowboys proving karma real”
