I’m sure by now you’re either looking forward to the 2019 fantasy football season or praying Patrick Mahomes doesn’t get hurt during your playoff run. Either way, I think we can all agree that every fantasy league has an… uhhh, let’s say “interesting” member. The hit show The League on FX and FXX was no different. If it wasn’t Taco making us laugh because he was too stoned to care about starting a full roster, it was Rafi making us laugh and want to puke at the same time. Regardless of where you’re at on the fantasy football spectrum for the remainder of the season, I think we should all take some time to appreciate Rafi. Have yourself a Wednesday, folks.

Well, it happened, The Cleveland Browns finally decided they were done with their 9th coach in 18 years. I think it may have had something to do with his 36 losses, but who am I to speculate. The three wins seemed to be enough for Jimmy Haslam (Owner), there were some reports he wanted changes but not at the head coaching position. In the end, John Dorsey (GM) helped him come to a decision that the best direction for this team was to move on from their head coach. Hue I still love you and let’s just get this out of the way, welcome back to Who Dey Nation.
Moving on, In a bold attempt to reinvent themselves the Browns have named Defensive Coordinator, Gregg Williams as the interim head coach. You may remember this psycho from HBO’s Hard Knocks, where he became a show favorite because of his angry outburst during pretty much every episode. (below is one of my personal favorites). Gregg Williams and Hue Jackson are like oil water when it comes to coaching, which may be the inspiration to his promotion. Hue has always been thought of as a players coach which works for some teams, but the Browns have lacked discipline and direction since they returned to Cleveland in 1999. Williams with a more aggressive approach will attempt to change the misfortunes of one of sports longest running jokes. GOOD LUCK! (LIAM NEESON VOICE)
By now you’ve heard that Rae Carruth, quite possibly the most despicable human being on the planet, was released from prison after serving 19 years for conspiring to murder his 8-month pregnant girlfriend. I’m not sure how someone like that ever gets out of prison, but that’s not why I’m here. I’ll let Whitty break that down in his upcoming soccer blogs.
My biggest gripe is the idiots that are celebrating his release by trying to buy his jersey. I understood the Michael Vick Halloween costumes where they’d have their dog with them. I didn’t think it was funny, but I saw why a 19-year-old college sophomore might. I was busy wearing a very tight Spider-Man costume and a Woopie Cushion costume that I turned inside out and wrote “DOUCHE BAG” on it. Much much better than wearing a Michael Vick jersey with my dog by my side, right? I like to think a lot of people were walking around Halloween parties in the mid-90’s wearing poor-fitting leather gloves. It’s too bad we didn’t have cameras back then to document such parties, but hopefully researches will find a stone tablet with that image chiseled into it someday.
Can we take a second to appreciate how awesome the officer on the right is? When he’s not escorting former NFL running backs through the courtroom I bet he’s busy yelling at his kids for turning up the thermostat and asking his wife “how on God’s green earth someone can spend $13 at Smoothie King”.

Same story, different year. I am so sick of this franchise.
See ya next week.
Is this a bit of an overreaction on my part? Maybe, but why be a fan if you can’t get excited about a major organizational change that seems to be the right move? It might also be the fact that I’m in a good mood because the Bengals haven’t had the chance to break my heart yet today. Continue reading
Thanks to this horrendous targeting call, LSU’s best defensive player will miss the first half of the Alabama game when the Crimson Tide make the trip to Baton Rouge in two weeks. You know, the game that could shape the College Football Playoff landscape. Steeler fans probably want Devin White banned from football, but anyone else watching this game can clearly see this wasn’t a targeting penalty. At best you could say this was a slightly late shove. Even that wouldn’t have warranted a flag in my opinion, but what do I know? Continue reading
There’s no other way to say it. That goal was downright incredible. After being destroyed by the Tampa Bay Lightning over the weekend the Blue Jackets needed a boost and Anthony Duclair was the man for the job. I know it’s way too early to throw out Goal of the Year talk, but this has to be in the conversation. I don’t care if it started by him falling down or the Flyers half-assing it on defense, Duclair looked like a magician on the ice.
Who knew Cam Atkinson’s two goals could be overshadowed by a single goal in in the first period, but that’s the way it goes some nights.
A lot of the chatter surrounding the Blue Jackets this season has been about the impending doom of Sergei Bobrovsky and Artemi Panarin’s contract situations and whether or not the Jackets can focus on winning now while protecting the future. Nights like tonight and seeing Duclair pull a rabbit out of the hat makes you realize we just need to enjoy the ride and see what the 2018-19 season has in store for us before we lose sleep over Panarin wanting to play in Tampa.
Here’s to hoping Duclair has a few more incredible goals like this up his sleeve. New York gave up on him way too early before sending him to Arizona for a few lackluster seasons and a very forgettable stint in Chicago. It’s time for Columbus to be on the right side of history when taking a chance on a guy in free agency. We’ve been burned too many times before.
