Sunday Morning Coffee: September 27, 1941

The morning breeze was sporadic, more warmth then relief. The early morning hours served the same purpose as the day before, a promise of a heated and uncomfortable duration. Paul Brown had just been hired by The Ohio State University. His legend was cemented by his tenure at Massillon High School – which between 1935 […]


Making The List: Earle Bruce

Football Season has begun. Speaking for myself…I am thrilled. I love this time of the year.

Last week we finally addressed Eddie George – indeed well overdue. This […]

Their accomplishments were completely golden and were well beyond the purpose of this weekly briefing of some of the greatest athletes to […]


Sunday Morning Coffee: October 19, 1919

The young man exited the house at 970 Oak Street at exactly six-thirty in the morning. A chill was in the air – the cloudiness simmered any attempts of the sun’s brightness from unlocking any hopes of a nicer day. The young man buttoned up the brown wool jacket he had just slipped his arms […]
