Larry Siegfried is the most unselfish player I have ever seen. He was the teams leading scorer and go-to guy before Lucas and Havlicek came in. Siegfried never complained about his diminished role when the future Hall of Famers arrived; he just adjusted and led the team in assists. Larry never really got the glory but he is one of my all time favorite Buckeyes.\

I can see the same thing happening all over again (after all it is groundhog day).

Browns release Manziel. Browns draft QB with 2nd pick. (Bosa shrugs with relief).

Has-been QB teaches newly drafted QB the ropes.

New QB get thrown to the wolves 3rd game and gets injured. Has-been gets injured.

Browns bring in another has-been QB to finish the season at 3-13.

Rinse, repeat.

I was there and 2 others. Foggy days back then. Some dude jumped from the upper deck into the netting behind home plate that day. It broke through...he didn't make it.

Great guitar work by Young and Stills in that version of Southern Man. Just listened to it yesterday.

Before it was Wendy's, that site was Tommy Henrich's Steakhouse. Henrich was a major league ball player for the Yankees and was the first player to ever hit a walk-off home run in a world series game. The steakhouse, which was more like a supper club, was full of baseball memorabilia.

I saw George Carlin perform there in '67 or '68 when he was the Hippy Dippy Weatherman.

Just a side note.

Mary Kay Cabot (beat writer) said on the Fan that the police were searching for Manziel because they thought he might be suicidal.

If that's true it is surely a sad state of affairs regarding  Manziel and he needs some help.

Now putting on my Mod hat, jokes about this will not be tolerated. Signing day is not the time to be in 11W jail.

Good idea. A friend has his own tree trimming biz and works at UPS, loading trucks, from 3 a.m. to 7 a.m. He does it mainly for their heath insurance benefits (even part timers get) but it also pays decent wages.

You might also look into an auto parts store such as Advance or Auto Zone. They're always looking for part timers to work weekends and/or nights.

Congratulations on the new Buckeye.

I was running a survey crew for the city at that time. Our posi-traction Suburbans were the closest trucks to four wheel drive the city had at that time. Spent the first 2 weeks shuffling big shots back and forth from city hall and the next 3 hauling around ex-cons from a halfway house to clear snow and ice from catch basins and fire hydrants.

The first 2 weeks I was on the clock 24/7 and was on doubletime starting the 3rd day. We got a few hours of shuteye each day on army cots in a city building downtown. Never made as much money in such a short time in my whole life.

I did manage to get home once or twice a day, the first 2 weeks to look after the family.

Watched it. Brought back a lot of memories from my time there in the 60's.

Also watched the South Side episode again before that for obvious reasons (see signature). It's the Southend, it's always been the Southend and it will always be the Southend.
