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.
Craig caught up with Dave for a chat about the Cavaliers' Game 1 defeat of the Raptors. After discussing that game for just a bit, Dave and Craig jumped right into the Browns' controversial draft pick, Caleb Brantley.
Dan Harrington is a relatively new member of WFNY. He made his podcast debut by bringing Fred McLeod to the WFNY Podcast. Now he and Brennan from The Point After will be delivering The Sunday Sermon. See the breakdown of topics by time below.
NFL Draft/Kevin Love trade rumors
Joe Thomas' memory loss and Brennan's girl problems
NBA/NHL Playoffs, Dan gets offended and talks about how he can't skate
MANsplaining ($400,000 coke mules, Obama $400,000 speech, enlisted military and bloggers are two worst jobs in America, Caitlyn Jenner says she knew OJ did it)
Ryan Leaf says he wasn't meant to be a pro QB
Pat Riley letter to LeBron
Ezekiel Elliot's mom has fire tweet/Alabama is North Korea of the U.S.
Health and fitness and Dan is basically Tiger Woods
America, give us some content/Closing
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.
Most people know Holden Laurence from his gig playing guitar for The Modern Electric. He's been busy, however, working on his album and it's ready for release. He sat down with Craig to discuss the making of the album, his process for writing and creativity and much more. Because Holden is a giant sports fan as well, we discussed some sports at the end. Make sure you stick around to the end to hear one of the first three singles off the album, "Cover Me in Roses."
Check out the album:

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.

The what sports boys? The Friday Fumble crew is back...in a way. Dave has found himself in a rented office trying to piece together the shattered Browns podcast he once had. He gets in touch with some old friends to not only get his show back on the podcast network, but also provide some of the best draft analysis that you will ever get. Dave is joined by Dylan, Yazan, Anthony Disgustini, Lucious Debris and of course Pal Alan to get you ready for this Thursday's draft.
We get takes from each person on:
So listen up to be the most informed person at the office/factory with this fact packed episode of the Browns Friday Fumble, right here on WFNY
Corporate SUIT stuff below!
The boys from EHC are here and they're doing some game recap podcasts. The first is a reaction to the Indians' loss to the Astros to lead off their homestand.
The EHC boys are back and they're talking about - what else? - the Cleveland Indians. They discuss the week that was, including talk about Francisco Lindor's monumental offer that was turned down.
The Cleveland Cavaliers pulled off one of the most epic First Round victories in the history of the NBA Playoffs. Chris Clem of Chris Clem's Cavs Cast jumped on the line to help me discuss it.
This is not a solo podcast. Craig and Dave attended Game 2 as the Cavaliers attempted to #DefendTheLand and succeeded. There were a lot of revelations and a lot of fun, despite the tight score at the end.
Here's what else was discussed:
Dan Harrington caught up with Fred McLeod after the Cavaliers' Game 1 victory over the Pacers. They discussed how it all went down and what kinds of changes the Cavaliers and Pacers might make going forward in the series. They also discuss the long NBA season, player rest, and the differences between a regular season performance and a playoff performance.
The Cleveland Cavaliers could have started the 2017 NBA Playoffs better in a lot of ways, but they got the win. Whenever you can win in the playoffs, that's obviously all that matters. However, we break things down further than that because we don't know what else to do.
- Forcing the ball out of Paul George's hands
- Letting C.J. Miles try and beat you
- Cavaliers reserves who contributed
- Cavaliers reserves who didn't get off the bench (Shump)
- Does a win concern you even if it's a win?
- What will the adjustments be for the Cavaliers heading into Game 2?
