We've long been admirer's of Terry Pluto's at WFNY. He's also been on the podcast a few times over the years. He's always been someone who appreciated what we've done and been friendly with links and references back to our work. I was elated when his publisher reached out to us and made some copies of his book available for us to give away to our audience. We're giving three copies of this book away, so please leave a comment on this post telling us your favorite Cavaliers Championship anecdote since they won the title. We'll select some random winners and try to get these books in your hands by Christmas.
If you don't win a copy of the book you can buy it at the following locations:

Jim Pete takes the hosting reigns with Craig.
Even though the Brownies don't have a game this week, Dylan, Dave and Yaz are back together to discuss the struggles of the Browns over the Bye, talk about important front office decisions and look at what desperate measures everyone in Berea is going through to get the Browns back on track.
It's been a slow week on the podcast, but it just got a lot better. I reached out to Will Burge of WTAM and he made some time for us to talk about Cleveland sports. We discussed public financing of stadiums, the Cleveland Browns and even the Cleveland Browns' quarterback quandary.
We are so sorry guys, Dylan gave us TOO MUCH notice that he would be gone for thanksgiving, so we don't have a ton of info on the Giants, but we do have a few friends checking in to with you a happy Thanksgiving.
It was inevitable that once the EHC guys got acclimated to their new digs at WFNY that they'd be back to their old tricks and podcasting again. Jim Pete, Jeff Nomina and Mike Hattery discuss the Indians in the outfield, trade possibilities, Brantley's shoulder, and friend shaming.
Dylan, Yaz and Dave are here to guide you through the first of our "Boycott Giant Eagle" weeks of the year, and in addition to covering RGIII's road to recovery and the best places for hot yoga in Middleburg Heights, we get into some Pittsburgh history. We cover the Pittsburgh football team and then talk about the big election issues that were facing Pittsburgh last week.
Jim Pete and I have been talking for months and we finally got together to talk some Cleveland sports. We talked Indians, Cavaliers and Browns. Jim even did the live read for Patreon! Hope you enjoy the first edition of Jim Pete on the WFNY podcast. You'll be hearing much more from him soon.
Bob Finnan covered the Cavaliers for more than 20 years. He has a new book called 100 Things Cavs Fans Should Know and Do Before They Die. Thankfully one of those things is a championship and Cavs fans can scratch that one off the list.
We talked about a host of Cavaliers topics including Dajuan Wagner, Carlos Boozer, LeBron James, The Decision, and obviously The Championship.
You should be able to pick up the book at local bookstores, but if you can't find it, you can grab a copy at Amazon.com.
THE BROWNS ARE BACK from their sabbatical, and coincidentally Dylan, Dave, and Yaz are also back to get you ready for this week's game. We open up the phone lines and get a fan response, and we give our bold predictions on the outcome of the game.
Craig and Andrew get together for a sports podcast about sports and not about anything else. Browns and Cavs. Just sports for you. For real.
On a day after an election, I wanted nothing more than to talk about sports. Yes, even if it is the Browns.
There was no guest lined up today, but with the Browns sitting at 0-9 with a Thursday night game against the Ravens, I wanted to get some thoughts out there. I also tell the story of how after the Browns vs. Cowboys game I became the cell phone hero!
TD was finally ready to talk, so we tried as best we could to put a bow on the 2016 Cleveland Indians season. We discussed what it was like to have to watch the Indians as away fans in Progressive Field. We talked about bad Cubs fans and good Cubs fans. We also talked about the Dallas Cowboys takeover of Cleveland Browns Stadium over the weekend and how painful that was.
Martin Rickman of UPROXX has been on the podcast multiple times in the past and he was nice enough to join us to talk about the Cubs defeating the Indians for the World Series crown. It was a sad day in many respects, but in the end I think we talked about a whole host of reasons why Cleveland fans should keep their heads up high. We also discussed the NBA vs. the NFL vs. MLB and how each of them markets their sport.
I don't know about the rest of you guys, but I'm a bundle of nerves wrapped in barbed wire. I don't want to move for fear of getting hurt as the Indians prepare for a Game 7 with Corey Kluber on the mound. It's a solo podcast where I dive into the deepest fears and also talk about the weirdness of the Cleveland Browns' trade for Jamie Collins.
I touched on the Cubs fans takeover of Progressive Field and why it's not particularly shocking or controversial. It stinks, but it's just kind of how economics works. There are more Cubs fans than Indians fans. There will always be more Cubs fans than Indians fans. StubHub and the secondary ticket market exists and will continue to exist giving consumers perfect information and visibility of pricing. You are never putting the genie back in the bottle.
Why is the Jamie Collins trade so weird? The Patriots seem to have gotten worse - intentionally - in a year where they're competing for a Super Bowl. Does this deal actually somehow make them better? Does this deal make the Browns better? Could this be a deal that makes both teams better in different ways? What do the Browns have to do to win their portion of the deal?
