Ken Carman makes his first appearance on the WFNY Podcast and boy was it a good one! Of course you know Ken Carman from the Ken Carman Show with Anthony Lima on 92.3 the Fan, and hopefully you'll know him even better after this conversation.
On this week's Sunday Sermon we're talking Cavaliers, and loosely about the Browns among other topics. Enjoy another weekly free-flowing conversation with The Sunday Sermon.
It's been a slow week of podcasts, but it was all an accident. Craig talks about the week that wasn't before delving into the passing of Chris Cornell and the Cleveland Cavaliers' dominance in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Dan and Brennan kick off another episode of The Sunday Sermon with Dan forgetting it's Mother's Day. They discuss the possible promotion to AA for Tim Tebow, Jabril Peppers being on the "lean and molly" as well as Josh Gordon's denied reinstatement. Dan breaks down the predictable NBA playoffs and Brennan gives his NHL update.
Other topics include the Rangers stealing "Party At Napoli's", Lavar Ball crying for help, Rory McIlroy crying, health and fitness, and the guys tell stories of the worst things they've ever done to their mothers, as well as ponder how much longer they'll be allowed to podcast.
Stipe Miocic is defending his title in Dallas on Saturday against Junior Dos Santos. Jamie Meklemburg joins the podcast to discuss everything involving the fight.
Here's what else we discussed:
The Cleveland Indians have been scuffling winners over the first six weeks of the season. While their 18-14 record puts them atop the American League Central by a game over the Minnesota Twins, the team has yet to click for more than a game or two at a time. No, it's not a time to worry, but while we're waiting for this team to get healthy and put it all together, there are some interesting struggles emerging.
Sure, it's WAY too early to be talking about first place, and worries, with a roster as talented as this one, but it's still something to put in your back pocket, as the summer season grows closer.
Today, WFNY's Jim Pete and Mike Hattery dive into a few of these conversations, discussing the fantastic bullpen, the suddenly thin-ish rotation, and of course, how the Indians are handling Yandy Diaz, and what and how they're presenting his talent to the public.
Here's the line-up:
Andrew Zelman has been running Cleveland Scene Magazine for three-going-on-four years. We sat down and discussed what it's like to run a newspaper and media company in 2017. We also discussed a lot of Cleveland sports topics, which happens to be one of Andrew's biggest passions.
Here's what else we discussed:
The boys from EHC are doing some game recap podcasts to boost up the Tribe talk at WFNY. Here's their latest from the May 7, 2017 victory over the Royals.
The Cleveland Indians 1-0, one-hit victory over the Kansas City Royals gave the Indians another series victory, and left the Tribe 1 1/2 games ahead of the second-place Minnesota Twins in the A.L. Central. At 17-13, the Indians have still left a lot on the table, but while they aren't anywhere near their peak performance, you can see the type of trouble they are going to cause teams all year long.
Take this weekend series. The Indians were throwing their 3-4-6 starters at the Royals in Danny Salazar, Josh Tomlin, and Mike Clevinger, and were still able to take two out of three while only scoring five weekend runs against the struggling Royals.
Daryl Ruiter has been covering Cleveland sports for the better part of 20 years. We talked about a host of topics covering sports media, social media, and the Cleveland Browns draft.
Here's what else we discussed:
Dan and Brennan are back with this week's Sunday Sermon podcast. They hit on a variety of topics listed below.

I wouldn't have been excited for the Browns to select Deshone Kizer first overall in the 2017 NFL Draft. However, of all the QBs that came out, he was one that I was most excited for, especially now that we know he could be had in the second round.
The Cleveland Browns did a lot on Thursday night of the 2017 NFL Draft. Craig breaks it all down from the highs to the lows and wondering what could and should have been.
Shifting gears a bit compared to our normal guests, we had the chance to speak with Elliot Gerard, the artist behind the imagery used in LeBron James' "Zero Dark Thirty-23" Instagram post heading into this year's playoffs. Since the upload, the piece has earned 800,000 likes, drawn 19,500 comments, and has become the Twitter avatar for countless Cavaliers fans.
Elliot and I discussed his background, the idea behind the piece, his partnership with another artist to make the entire concept come to life, and the future of NBA and art culture as it continues to overlap more and more.
