Grew up in northeast Ohio. Now I don't live there. Go Bucks. My plan is to eventually retire to Youngstown or Cleveland and buy season tickets to all four teams that I love (Cavs, Browns, Indians, Bucks)


  • SPORTS MOMENT: As a Cleveland fan, not much. That one time the Browns went 10-6 and missed the playoffs? Let's go with that.
  • COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYER: Troy Smith (I was at tOSU from 04-08)
  • NFL TEAM: The Super Bowl Bound Cleveland Browns
  • NBA TEAM: Cleveland Cavaliers
  • MLB TEAM: Roll Tribe

My understanding was these weren't available until the 16th. This may have been in error.

I was lucky enough to get one of the black jerseys on the Nike website, but there is much cool stuff. CAPITALISM! BUY! BUY! BUY!

In a week which saw Ole Miss, ND and UCLA fall, it is a powerful reminder about how hard it is to go undefeated. Buckeyes will get the benefit of the doubt as champions

My buddy, Lyndon Baines, a tiny Bichon Poodle I walk around Manhattan in his Cleveland Browns jersey

They are in a rebuilding process and it will take time.  It took Rodriguez and Hoke (Edit: Don't think I forgot about you Dave Brandon)  years to destroy what was one of the most prestigious programs in the country.

I know some here would like to see Michigan at the bottom, I want them to go undefeated headed into the game. B1G is strongest when we have OSU and Michigan at the top, just like in MLB when the Yankees win

If I wanted to watch bad football, I would turn on Cleveland Browns preseason.

Atrocious game so far 

Comment 02 Sep 2015

I am on the same page.

I love the Browns, but I wouldn't wish it on my deepest enemy.

Living in New York the last seven years I could have easily adopted the New York teams, but I resisted due to my dedication to Cleveland.

I just ordered the Sunday Ticket and my future wife asked, "Why are you paying to put yourself in a bad mood every week." I didnt have a good response

And, most importantly, a Cleveland Browns fan.


I don't know if this speaks to her wisdom as a football power broker or is a grave mistake? Why would anyone not from Northeast Ohio cheer for the Browns? It is a curse someone is forced to live with, not something someone willing takes.

Smart.  That is a great idea (flowers).  Instead of party favors, we are making a donation to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. My fiance's mother passed away several years ago and this is a way to honor her at the wedding.

I agree on the photographer and the videographer. You need to get high quality for the reasons you stated.  

Comment 31 Aug 2015

I actually told the florist, "You know flowers die, right?" and it just made everything more awkward for everyone.

They are paying about half of the wedding costs. We are responsible for the other half. In sum, we are looking at probably $60-$65k after the honeymoon. I would prefer a honeymoon to Youngstown or Cleveland to cut costs, but I lost that battle. 

Luckily, neither of us have student loans and we bought a house in NYC two years ago. It isn't the biggest burden, but I know it can be done A LOT cheaper.
