I applaud the initial thought process behind implementing the Columbus City flag into the team kit, it's a pretty cool idea, but i question how the idea made it past everyone who has a vote in the final product. When the city flag colors are primarily Red and Blue, and your team colors are primarily Black and Yellow, you really leave yourself very little room to make that combination work. At some point someone should have said hey, for our third jersey let's make it primary Red, White and Blue and just put the team shield on the chest and called it a day. i'm sure everyone could have lived with that. As it currently stands, the Crew are the butt of a lot of jokes and will probably get voted for ugliest kit in the league. Hopefully the Crew's on-field performance greatly outweighs their appearance.

I'm a lifelong Browns fan (and a former season ticket holder) and the words Browns and Championships/super bowls/playoffs/winning season should not be paired in the same sentence. Especially since they came back to Cleveland. Hopefully in about 3 years we'll work our way back into being a competitive team.
Demario McCall will be one of the starting kickoff returners. Also, this may not be a huge stretch, but Terry McLaurin will catch over 20 passes for about 320 yds and 3 TD's. Those clearly aren't earth shattering #'s, but they'll help open up other parts of the field for the other playmakers.
Yes, gleneagles is that course. I knew it had a G in it! Haha
yes, portside sounds right. I forgot about brew kettle, but I've been there. Never realized we had so many breweries in Cleveland, but that's pretty cool to know.
Last year we took a ride on lolley the trolley just to see some of the development downtown and it was really cool to see the mix of historical building and the new builds. Glad to see the flats are being built back up and so many entertainment options.
Nice. My sister actually lives in Twinsburg as well. I know there's a golf course I drive past to get to their house, but I am drawing a total blank on that course name
As I had mentioned previously, I've just been so busy with work, kids and then working on the house that I really haven't had much of a chance to go out. A buddy of mine is getting married in May, but one of the things we are doing for his bachelor party is going to a local Brewer for a sampling. I want to say it's the potter or porter brewery? Something like that? Anyhow, besides fat heads I really haven't been able to make the trek to any others. It's a shame because I hear we have a few good ones. I can't believe I still haven't made it to Great Lakes yet. I hope to get out there this spring as well. How about yourself? If you have any other brewery tour recs I'd appreciate the info
Yes, i actually live in Strongsville and work in Independence. We babysit a wonderful little 2 yr old who lives in North olmsted, so i try to use that drive as an excuse to grab some grub from fatheads every once in a while.
I tried murphys about 2 years ago for the first time, but you could tell that the bottles had been warm, then chilled, then warm, then re-chilled a few times and just had that old taste to them. Despite that fact, I still thought the flavor was good. Might have to give those another whirl here soon.
Thank you for the suggestions. Last night I stopped at a small beverage store and as I was grabbing a six pack of the berryweiss, the girl working said she had 3 single bottles of various leinekugle beers so she made me up a little sampler. Had 2 berryweiss last night and today I am going to try the red lager and the doppleback that she put in there. There was a random 7th bottle she gave me but I don't recall what it was offhand. I'll let you knew which one I like the best. Thanks again!
I guess i've always gravitated towards a Killian's or darker irish beer, but i'm really up to try anything. A few weeks back we went to Fatheads for lunch and i tried a sampler that had Holly Jolly, another darker beer, but i was most impressed with their Bumble berry, which had a fruitier taste. For tonight's pit stop to the beverage store, i was leaning towards a citrusy type beer.
I'm glad we have a nice beer conversation brewing (i really didn't intend for the pun, but it fits so i'm leaving it). I've been working on my grandmother's house ever since she passed away, so with that, work, the wife and kids, i just never rally found time over the past year or so to enjoy a good beer. To be honest, i don't remember the last time i just sat around a fire and enjoyed a few beers. Anyhow, just wanted to see what you folks may recommend. In my younger years, anything with alcohol would do, but now as i creep closer to 40 i guess i'd prefer more of a sippin' beer than a guzzlin' beer.
Thank you in advance for your suggestions. i leave work in about an hour, so i'm anxious to see what everyone comes up with.
Wow, i completely forgot about Harrison! good call!
Good morning everyone!
So this may have been referenced earlier, but i scrolled through the comments and haven't noticed anything on it. So let's go semi-worst case scenario and say that Burns goes back to L'Ville, and Hardman, Becker, Pridgeon, King and Wallace all choose other schools. Would we just bank the scholly's for a loaded 2017, or are there some names out there that we would go after? i don't want to sound like debbie-downer over here, just curious.
i absolutely cannot stop watching this. very nice find.
I think Ebner is the only Buckeye on either team. Dallas had an OL in training camp (Browning?) 2-3 years ago, but i think that's it
The good things about being a Browns fan is that i almost expect them to lose every week, so seeing a Buckeye doing well while on a rival team doesn't really upset me much. I'm actually to the point where i just want the Browns to be in the game at the end of the 3rd quarter, then whatever happens, happens. Now if the Browns were good, then i might look at it a little differently.
I just hope that this current draft class can go out and really make a name for themselves. It's almost like watching a relative grow up when you've heard these names for so many years. Plus it will help recruiting. Look at what last weeks championship games did for the Buckeyes.
i think i've watched that at least 20 times. you can tell this is going to be a productive day at the office.
This is a great suggestion. I did this exact thing back in the late 90's to help me get by while i was in school. You won't get rich doing this, but it will definitely help put a few bucks in your pocket
That's a damn good point fatpants!
I guess the good side of being terrible and shanking most of my shots into the woods is that i don't really need to go out and buy one of these fancy devices!
nice. thanks for the info!
I am drawing a complete blank on NFL FA, but i believe that as a RFA, if the Browns did not match an offer to Gordon, they would get the other teams first round pick. Is that right?
As a Browns fan i would love for him to get back on the field and show some of the massive potential that he did a few seasons ago. More importantly though, i hope for his sake that he can put everything behind him and start fresh. Alcohol/Drug problems are no laughing matter, so he will need to find a way to push past those demons every single day. Hopefully he can surround himself with a solid core of friends who will help him look out for his best interest. He doesn't have to look any further than Justin Blackmon to see what can happen when you give in to temptation. I believe this is the final year of his contract, so he has even more incentive to keep himself on the right path.
Holy crap that would be awesome!
Looks like it's rumored that he is headed to Florida.
oh wow, i completely forgot that WVU is in the big 12. haha so much for that plan!
