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.

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.
