Ben Axelrod (twitter) is one of the best guests on the WFNY podcast. He's a sports guy, but he can talk about anything. He's willing to throw questions back at me and challenge me on things. We laugh about stuff usually. This time was no different.
We've long talked about having an owner's podcast and now it finally happened. Prior to a WFNY owner's conference call, we talked about a whole host of things. We talked about WFNY. We talked about where we've been, where we're going and what we think about when we're planning for the future.
No conclusions. No breaking news, but it should be an interesting listen for the long-timers.
It's been a bit of a podcast drought of late, and it probably won't get better until next week. That being the case I wanted to check in and give you my Cleveland Browns preview thoughts as we get into Game 2 of the 2016 NFL pre-season. I also discussed some of these points at length on the pages of WFNY.

Dave Sterling? Who is this Dave Sterling? The man behind the Browns Friday Fumble comes out of his sports contentedness to chat with Craig on the podcast.
They talk about the following:
And much much more.
It's been a while since Chad Zumock was on the podcast, so we caught up on pretty much everything. I talked to him about being on the road. We talked about movies, including sports movies and the new Ghostbusters. We discussed being old and collecting baseball cards as kids. We discussed Draymond Green and his Snapchat SNAFU.
Check it out. Hope you enjoy this free-flowing conversation with a friend of the site.

The Cleveland Indians acted like big time players on Sunday making trades for the New York Yankees' Andrew Miller and the Milwaukee Brewers' Jonathan Lucroy. Only the Miller trade ended up going through, but it was a banner day for the Tribe. I also discuss how meaningless training camp is, and Ghostbusters 2016.
There's nobody on earth I'd rather talk Indians baseball with than former WFNY Tribe Scribe TD. He was on his way to the daytime getaway day game against the Washington Nationals and I caught up with him to discuss all the pressing issues involving the Cleveland Indians right now.
The Ringer is doing Cleveland week thanks to the RNC and the Cleveland Cavaliers championship. I reached out to Jason Concepcion, who goes by @netw3rk on Twitter, to discuss all things Cleveland.
We discussed the Cavaliers Championship, Kid Rock vs. Limp Bizkit, Donald Trump, protesters, the city of Cleveland holding their collective breath, and much much more.
On part two Brian and Craig get into Dwyane Wade's move to Chicago, why Brian can't stand the Crying Jordan meme and a bunch about the 2016 crop of summer movies.
This turned out to be a two-part podcast with Brian Spaeth. We had a long drive and ended up talking for about an hour. Part one is a lot about NBA free agency. We talk about Kevin Durant's move to the Warriors in a post-championship world. We discussed Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng and whether or not super teams were the death of the NBA.
Part two will include talk about Crying Jordan, more NBA and movies.
With the July 4th holiday, it's been a slow time on the WFNY Podcast. I was brimming with things to say about all the various player movements that I had to talk about it all. Here's what else I discussed, but first...
Last, but not least, if you want to support WFNY and all of our initiatives, please consider joining at Scout.
Former WFNY weekend writer, turned book writer, Brendan Bowers joins the podcast to discuss his Cleveland Cavaliers championship book called "Cleveland Is King!" The book is available at Amazon and at Triumph books.
We discuss the process of writing a championship book that's released right after a championship. We discussed the changing of Cavaliers narratives. Finally we discussed the Cavaliers off-season and what it might be like to bring this entire team back to defend the title.
I've been talking about the Cleveland Cavaliers season obituary I wrote. Well, here it is. This is the beginning and please listen in for the rest.
If you define success by winning championships you're doomed to misery. I know it's early in the mourning process for these kinds of thoughts, but I've had this one stewing since the Cleveland Cavaliers dropped Game 4 to the Golden State Warriors. After attending that game and being a bit down, but not completely depressed, I had all these thoughts swirling around my head. I can't summarize my opinion in just one statement - and I won't with the number of words this will take - but my truth about the Cavaliers - and one I hope to feel sooner rather than later - is that this was an amazing season to be a fan of the team, despite them not winning it all.
I don't know if this was the best podcast we ever do, but it's definitely the best topic. Scott Raab joins the WFNY podcast after the Cleveland Cavaliers made history and made us all champions.
