What If Lebron Had Been A Buckeye?

I must confess I love fantasy pieces. I am not necessarily speaking of ‘Star Wars’ and space adventures or some of the gothic stuff, or even comic books. I am speaking of sports fantasy. Every year I envision the Buckeyes winning the National Title in football, basketball (Men’s and Women’s), rugby, track and field… and […]

From the Ohio Fanbase: Thanks to the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James

A couple weeks ago before the NBA Finals started, I wrote an article about the struggles of Cleveland sports and gave my prediction for the NBA Finals. I will fully admit that I predicted the Warriors would win in five games. For a while it looked like my prediction would be spot on. However, a […]

So, The Cleveland Cavaliers are NBA Champions

(I may be retired, but I’m not dead. Yet.) Not that I didn’t think I’d live to see this day, but for Cleveland sports fans, this is a period of joy, relief and validation of their (probably) long term support of Cleveland’s professional sports franchises (Browns, Cavaliers, Indians). Father’s Day was an eventful day for […]

Will the 52 Year Drought For Cleveland Finally End?

Hello everyone and welcome as I tell you very sad tale.  Its a tale most of you know.  Its the story of the sports history in the city of Cleveland. I am from Northeast Ohio.  I’ve been a Cleveland sports fan all my life.  I’m as passionate as a Cleveland sports fan as I am […]

Wednesday Night Rumble: North East Ohio, LeBron and The Return

On July 8th, 2010, LeBron James went on national television and announced that he was leaving Cleveland to “take his talents” to South Beach and play for the Miami Heat. Hearts all over Ohio, especially in North Eastern Ohio, and most especially mine, were ripped out and crushed. A lot has happened in the four […]

Welcome Home, LeBron James!

The King is back – where he belongs, in Northeast Ohio. Friday afternoon’s announcement that LeBron James was returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers was Earth-shattering, but it really should not have come as a surprise.  In fact, the only reason it was a shock was because of the inept and biased reporting at ESPN, which […]

Silver Bullet Points Gets Grilled

Well, the first holiday weekend of the summer is soon upon us. Memorial Day reminds us of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, and also that there are still people who savor their Constitutional right to be wrong. Words matter, people.  At any rate, today’s tune is just a little something appropriately mournful and full […]

Wednesday Night Rumble: The Dead Period Trudges On

Another week rolls on toward the start of camp as the “dead period” continues to trudge forward with it. That doesn’t mean we don’t have Buckeye sports items/thingy’s to talk about. And what are the Cleveland Cavaliers going to do now that they have the first pick in the NBA’s draft lottery for the second […]

Assessing the angst in Cleveland

Hypothetical scenario: Jim Tressel’s contract with Ohio State is set to expire, and he elects not to sign an extension.  Rather, he decides to “test the waters” and look at other opportunities on the college football landscape.  After rampant speculation about his leanings, Tressel finally calls a press conference (obviously televised on ESPN) to inform […]

Quick Hits: NFL Draft, Spring Game Draft, NBA Playoffs

The NFL Draft is tonight at 7:30 ET on ESPN/NFL Network. ElevenWarriors has a look at the Buckeyes hoping to hear their names called over the next three days. A lot of Browns fans seem to want Eric Berry at 7 and Colt McCoy in the 2nd round, that would be just fine with me. […]

Cavaliers to get their chance for revenge

The schedule for the NBA Playoffs is out.  This is the year Cleveland Cavalier fans get their vengeance on all the Michael Jordan memories that were thrust upon them. Cleveland Cavaliers (1) vs. Chicago Bulls (8) Game 1 – Saturday, April 17th, 3pm at Cleveland Game 2 – Monday, April 19th, 8pm at Cleveland Game […]

NBA Playoffs begin in three days

Back when this site was on the SBNation network, we made a concerted effort to stick to all things Buckeyes, and not write about other teams, college or pro. The network had blogs from just about every team/sport out there, so we thought that writing about topics that weren’t related to Ohio State would be […]

This is a FUN team, no doubt about it

You knew that adding Shaq to the Cleveland Cavaliers would make the team more relaxed and fun to play with….but they’re making it fun for US to watch too. Last night, they went throwback to their 80s uniforms, and they put together this little pre-game video for the Phoenix game.  Enjoy

Are you ready? Cavaliers begin their quest….now!

10:16pm – Winding it down.  Stretches of success, stretches of failure.  This was a playoff game without the playoff atmosphere. 10:12pm – Cavs going to lose their opening game for the second year in a row to Boston, have lost 5 of the 7 openers in LeBron James era.  Have lost at least two of […]

The state of Cleveland sports

Subtitled – “Thank God for LeBron James” The Cleveland Indians The Major League Baseball season is wrapping up at the end of next week, and much to my chagrin, The BBC hasn’t discussed the Cleveland Indians much at all this season.  Truth is, I WANT to have the Tribe be a regular discussion at The […]

Hmmm….road trip, anyone?

No, we’re not planning to drive down to Florida and beat up Ralph Decker.  Despite the heavy traffic coming from EDSBS and others who claim The BBC is on a mission to hunt him down, we’ve actually made it clear that we want the law (and not vigilante justice) to prevail…and we have refused to […]

Rashard Lewis = Manny Ramirez

Time and time again, as we watched the Eastern Conference Finals, we saw Rashard Lewis of the Orlando Magic hit shots from the outside. Two things often left my throat after he buried long shots. 1) Somebody GET ON HIM! 2) No way is this guy that good….he must be on something! Turns out, I […]

"I feel like it's the f–king 80s again"

Last night I was sitting at the bar of a local restaurant, waiting to pick up the gf and hang out with her. I wasn’t paying attention to the TV set and was instead fiddling around with my cell phone. I had no idea what was on that TV, and I never had to look […]
