We made a big announcement today on WFNY that Brian Spaeth will be delivering five Cavs thoughts to email subscribers after each Cavs game this season. I had Brian come over to my house and we talked about it on the podcast.
Please make sure you go sign up for the newsletter. I'm really excited for it and the first one comes out after the Wine and Gold scrimmage on Wednesday.
Dave Sterling (@dimoko) joined me to talk about all the sports iinactivity. The Browns are on their bye. The Tribe said goodbye for the year. The Cavs haven't started yet. We talked about fun stuff like ceiling fans.
I welcomed back my friend Joe Petrich from the Cleveland band Something Involving a Monkey to discuss the 2014 Cleveland Indians. Joe is a brilliant guitarist and musician, but he also is about as knowledgable a Cleveland Indians fan that I know.
We discussed the following...
Here's what else we talked about.
I've been a guest of Joe Lull's (@lullonsports) on his radio progrum on 92.3 the Fan and for whatever reason I never asked him to come on the podcast. I sometimes feel like guys who talk sports for a living would be doing me a favor to come on the podcast. Anyway, that ended today as Joe came on to tell us a little about where the hell he came from and his perspective as a host here in local sports radio.
We talked about how much national stories have been talked about here locally. We talked about Cleveland as a one-station sports talk town. We talked about the ill-fated DSN and finally the launch of 92.3 the Fan.
I can't even begin to tell you everything that Chad Zumock (@chadzumock) and I discussed today on the podcast. Chad is an obvious veteran to talk radio and the conversation just flows.
Here's some of the stuff we discussed.
The Cleveland Browns won a football game! They won their home opener for the first time since 2004. They beat the New Orleans Saints. They did it with a game-winning drive engineered by Brian Hoyer.
Here's what else we talked about. We didn't talk about Johnny Manziel at all, I don't think.
Brian Spaeth joined the podcast today to try and talk about sports. Brian talks to us more about media and things like that than sports, which is why I love having him on as a guest.
Here are some of the things we discussed.
Craig and TD get together to talk about the latest in and around the Cleveland sports world...
Mike Burgermeister and I break down the Cleveland Browns and their matchup with the Steelers to open the 2014 season. How good are the Steelers actually? Beyond Ben Roethlisberger, what do the Steelers have going for them. When will their defenders hit the age wall? Joe Haden matching up with Antonio Brown.
We also discussed the finer points of the programming battle between DirecTV and Raycom.
Brian Spaeth joined the podcast today to discuss a bunch of different things. Here's a list.
TD was able to find some time for me while he's on the road. Here's what we talked about.
