JR Smith's shooting woes are a smidge troubling. Only 2 games, so small sample size, and he isn't taking many bad shots. But if the Cavs are going to the Finals, he'll have up his shooting

Scot Tenorman Must Die is #1. Only other I would even attempt to put near it is the "Here Comes The Neighborhood" episode when all the rich, black celebrities move to South Park.

I really liked the Abrams Star Trek movies. Part of the reason was I was never a big Trekkie, so I didn't care if he really strayed from canon.

I am a big Star Wars fan so I would care if he really went away from canon. But I remember reading an interview where Abrams stated he was a big Star Wars fan growing up but never a big Trek fan. So I think he knows and respects SW canon better.

For years, Lucas claimed he never even thought about episodes 7-9, never had even an idea. Then says he has a script for Disney. After the prequel debacle, I am glad Abrams is going on his own.

The article with Jim Delaney photoshopped onto the "Dewey Defeats Truman" image is still on the front page. Seems like we were also enjoying the accomplishments of the conference. Is Miles not allowed to because he's the coach? Because I would argue that trumping up the image of the conference does him more good than fans doing it.

That's awful passive aggressive. You're trying to vilify CCC and when we point out your misconceptions, you pull the "agree to disagree" card. Sorry, that won't fly. Admit you have no clue about CCC, and then we can agree to disagree.

As someone who works at a Diocesan school, Cleveland area Catholic schools actually tend to operate at a disadvantage, financially, as compared to public schools. The tuition, which the Diocese likes to keep relatively uniform across its schools, is about $3000 less than what the state determines as "sufficient" to educate a child in Ohio. Schools like Eds and Ignatius, which have some uber wealthy alums, make up the difference via donations. CCC, Bennies and the like don't have that luxury given the population they pull from. It's why schools like Regina and Chanel have closed down in recent years.

He also said "I plan on being a Cavalier either way" when asked if winning a title this year will affect his decision. Somehow, him saying he's going to play in Cleveland next year isn't the headline, but some quantifying of his friendship with LeBron is.

Normally, I would chalk this up to the national media, but this is the freaking biggest paper in Cuyahoga County. The Plain Dealer hired Chris Haynes, Joe Vardon and Chris Fedor to cover the Cavs, and all 3 have been awful. Fedor is so bad I put him on a Mark May level.

Good. I didn't get into the X-Files until a couple years after it ended. I liked the 2nd movie, but it just a long stand alone episode and did nothing to help close the major mythology arcs of the series. Even if it is crappy closure, we need closure.

Big Nut was at the NCAA Tourney games in Cleveland a few years ago when OSU was a #1 seed. I met him and took a picture with him. He was a genuinely nice guy to me, so I always defend him when people on here rip him.

I love Mike Tyson PO references, but I think King Hippo or Soda Popinski are more recognizable.

Pre-SEC shill edition Gary Danielson added, "the problem is you don't have your running back who can make these kinds of plays," in reference to Clarett standing behind Jim Tressel on the sideline as backup quarterback Scott McMullen motioned in the play.

Danielson on ABC was my favorite color guy. Even on CBS, he's still one of the best color guys, when he isn't spewing SEC propaganda.

Sometimes I think I am the target audience for these movies.

In general, I like Sci-Fi movies. Star Wars is my favorite franchise, and the only one I followed "in depth", but I generally like Star Trek, LOTR, etc.

I never have read a comic book in my life. Didn't watch any MCU films till the Avengers came out, and I only Redbox'd it because I wanted to see the Cleveland scenes. I liked, so I went back and watched all the phase 1 moves, and enjoyed them. Now, I see them all in theatres.

It's great being a casual comic book fan. Since I haven't read any comic books, I never get disappointed about "botching" a charcter or story arc, because I never knew them. And if I need to do some quick research (i.e. Thanos or Infinity Stones), I can just go to wikipedia and get what I need in 5-10 minutes.

It's an already made universe that I can choose how far into it I want to go.
