"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 […]

Wait, where was I when that happened?

Oh, yeah…I was out of town and turned off my cell phone.  Tuesday I took a trip to Cedar Point and Wednesday I was in Pittsburgh for a concert, so I missed the news about the Cavaliers. The Cleveland Cavs signed Tony Parker to a contract.  Let’s see what Eva Longoria says about having to […]

The Cavs make a new Shaquisition!

Yeah, it’s true….what was reported on for weeks has become a reality. Shaq is a Cleveland Cavalier. We got him for Ben Wallace (who was retiring), Sasha Pavlovic (our 8th man on the bench), the Cavs 2nd round draft pick (the 46th pick) and some money (500 thousand dollars).  HELL of a deal! Think of […]

Shaq may be in Cavaliers uniform soon

The Cleveland Cavaliers may be making a trade very soon, and the deal would be huge.  The Cavs are in talks with Phoenix to trade for Shaquille O’Neal in exchange for Ben Wallace and Sasha Pavlovic.  ESPN News has been all over this story today, with a few twists to it. Executives from both teams […]

Well…..dammit. Now what?

Yeah, I’ve been avoiding writing this because I was just too irritated, but the time has come to sit down and begin planning for the ’09-’10 Cavaliers season (and beyond). Frankly, the discussion about Game 6 has been played out already.  We had our runs at it and Orlando just had everything working for them […]

Relaxed, ready, and resolute

I’ve been to six Cavalier games this year, and have watched 70+ more.  At this point, I’ve feel like I’ve reached the point that I can tell what LeBron’s going to do by his body language at the top of the key. Last weekend, I went to Game 2 with my brother and his wife […]

Victory! Shifting the pressure

The Cleveland Cavaliers finally figured out how to beat Orlando last night. A swarming perimeter defense and keeping Dwight Howard off the glass were both key elements early and late as the Cavaliers won by double-digits 112-102 Thursday night. Oh, and getting a triple-double from a guy named LeBron.  That was big too.  James had […]

Tonight's "must-win"

Yesterday, I posted my thoughts about how the Cavaliers can win this series, and it included badgering Dwight Howard to get him his 7th technical foul and an automatic one-game suspension. Then the NBA decided to protect one of its’ stars. The NBA rescinded Howard’s 6th technical foul (one which he clearly deserved) by stating […]

Is it over? No, but it's bad

Yeah, it’s bleak right now. We’ve played well enough to win but are still down 3-1. Is it over? Hell no. Here’s why. 1) We’re playing at home Thursday night in Game 5. Say what you will about the past week of basketball, but there is no house in the NBA that is tougher to […]

Inside The Q after the shot

I actually forgot I had videotaped this.  In all the excitement, my mind was racing and I somehow got my camera out to record the scene at Quicken Loans Arena after LeBron hit his game-winning three-pointer. Something that people at home might not know…..the basket wasn’t declared official for about two minutes after it went […]

The greatest moment in Cleveland sports history?

By now you’ve seen it several hundred times.  LeBron James burying a buzzer-beating three-point shot to win Game 2 and save the Cavaliers season. The BBC and many others have quickly labeled it as “The Greatest Moment In Cleveland Sports History”. But is it truly? I’ve spent 36 hours, since the shot went through the […]

The general reaction of an entire state

This video pretty much epitomizes exactly what the entire state of Ohio went through from 11:30 to 11:32 last night. That’s an on-air reaction to The Shot.  Although I am kinda pissed at Leon Bibb for throwing in the towel so quickly, it is true that he was merely voicing what a lot of us […]

To be a witness

I’m still in shock. I was in Section 220 at The Q Friday night, and I can’t believe what I saw.  It may be the single greatest play in Cleveland sports history. LeBron James buries a three-pointer as the buzzer sounds, and the Cavaliers beat the Orlando Magic 96-95 in amazing fashion. In one second, […]

Tonight is a must-win

That’s all there is to say. Oh, and I’ll be there with a sign that reads “Barkley loves fishsticks”.
