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.
As of early this morning, the #Browns could have gone one of two ways: Make a change at OC or make a change at head coach. Owner Jimmy Haslam sounded like he wanted to keep Hue Jackson. GM John Dorsey wanted to move on. In the end, they moved on from Hue Jackson.
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)

Well, folks, we waited most of the summer for Adam Jones news and we finally have it. For those of you who haven’t seen the fight (view below), Adam Jones was in an altercation with an airport employee (Big Surprise). Before you comment, I understand according to authorities he was defending himself, but come on you’re Adam “PacMan” Jones, just walk away when someone gestures or yells towards you. I have a very hard time feeling bad for someone like Adam Jones who is so easily drawn into an altercation time after time year after year. His temper and inability to just walk away has not only brought him legal trouble/financial ramifications, but it has also cost the Bengals games. It should be obvious based on him still being a free agent, but I really hope the Bengals have finally moved from this clown.
It’s Memorial Day weekend the perfect time to fire up that grill. If you’re like me a bag of Grippo’s BBQ potato chips is being consumed as you wait for them delicious burgers and dogs to cook. These chips are a staple of any holiday cookout, the barbecue seasoning is the perfect blend of spices that keep eating one an impossible task. That’s why when I saw Grippo’s BBQ Beef Jerky made by Pap’s I had to give it a try, watch the video below to see what I thought of this twist on a Cincinnati Classic.
Welcome to another episode of Hungry Hungry Jefe, on today’s episode we test out Buffalo Trace Distillery’s Kentucky Bourbon Chocolate. Buffalo Trace is a distillery located in Frankfort Kentucky and has been around 200 years. If you would like more information about Buffalo Trace Distillery visit their website.

Chocolate is hard to mess up and adding bourbon flavor only made it taste that much sweeter. However, the sweetest part of this video has got to be the introduction of T-Bone the bourbon chugging machine; he will be doing video reviews with me from time to time and yes ladies he is single! If you are a Cowboy/ Buckeyes/ Red Sox fan or just enjoy long walks on the beach and snuggling, slide into T-bone’s DMs (@MillironTBone) jump on the train now ladies before he is too famous!
A quick disclaimer before you watch the video: When you chug too much bourbon the number of reshoot attempts has to be limited and the video quality suffers. T-Bone looks damn good doing it though!
I’m not a coffee person. I can honestly say I’ve never tried a cup before in my life. The bitter smell never appealed to me, so as an adult needing a morning pick-me-up, I usually went with an energy drink (Red Bull, Monster Ultra and Kick Start’s being my go-to).
Well, apparently, energy drinks are awful for your heart, and since I’d like to stay alive to see a Cincinnati team finally make a post-season run in the late 2030’s, I figure I’d try to find some other way to wake up in the morning. The other day at Kroger, I saw this caffeine gum called Alert in the check-out aisle.
Kirk Cousins has been topic of discussion every year for the last 3-4 off-seasons. Most of the news was centered around his struggle with Dan Snyder and the rest of the Redskins organization for them refusing to commit to him as their long-term franchise quarterback. Kirk cousins decided to gamble and play his way into a contract whether it was with the Redskins or somewhere else. Today his gamble paid off. Kirk Cousins just became the highest paid quarterback in the NFL, YOU LIKE THAT!?
Las Vegas is a familiar place for a long time UFC star like Ronda Rousey. On Sunday she officially signed her WWE contract and will now enter the world of sports entertainment. She entered with the same name, same music, but the brand she is representing is different.
Well, it is official AJ McCarron has won his grievance case against the Bengals and this means he is officially a free agent as of March. This also means that the botched trade with the Browns, as if it wasn’t bad enough, will sting just a little bit more. Continue reading →
I’ll never forget it. I probably still have the newspaper clipping that my grandma cut out for me somewhere in my basement, along with the rest of my baseball cards and memorabilia from my childhood.
18 years ago this past weekend, the Reds fortunes were supposed to change. Griffey was the end-all-be-all baseball star of the 90’s. Shoes, magazines, video games, television commercials. Griffey was everything. If you grew up in the 90’s, you were a fan of Michael Jordan, and you were a fan of Junior. I turned 14 two weeks after he signed to my hometown team, and got two different Griffey jerseys for my birthday. The city was buzzing with Reds talk, and dreams of another World Series run, which hadn’t happened in a decade.
