    The body is still warm, but it is time for an autopsy of the 2014 Cleveland Indians. A year ago, I waited a few weeks, but while it is all still fresh in my head, I wanted to get the player power rankings out to you for consumption. The season ended before it should have with the Tribe winning 85 games and falling short of a second straight playoff appearance. However there is a lot to be excited about in the years to come. As always, this list is subjective and based on how the full season played out. When I produced this list after the 2013 Wild Card loss to Tampa Bay, many scoffed at my…

    The overall verdict on the 2014-2015 Cleveland Cavaliers season debut at Quicken Loans Arena was met with resounding enthusiasm in front of a packed house for the annual Wine and Gold scrimmage.

    Wednesday’s near-normal temperature pattern is a good way to start the month of October, since September averaged out right at the edge of “statistical normal” (-2.0°F) and a little wetter than normal. Thursday will likely be the very best day that October will record weather-wise. Temperatures will head for the upper 70s°F, a solid 10°F above normal. After that, the game-changing cold front arrives on Friday, opening up the floodgates of very cool, Canadian air. Click for a look at more weather coverage.

    Does Shakespeare translate to our 21st century present? Yes, but it helps to take liberties. And Great Lakes Theater’s current production of Merry Wives of Windsor at the Hanna Theatre takes liberties aplenty, broad liberties that the cast plays to exuberant perfection. For starters, Director Tracy Young has set this MWoW immediately after the Second World War  in “Windsor, Wisconsin” and modeled this Falstaff after Orson Wells. As played by Aled Davies, this Falstaff / Wells is a former film star gone to seed and fat. (Physically, alas, one is also reminded a bit of Marlon…

The play is set in an unnamed country whose symbol is a large five cornered red star, which is bannered on the wall of the interrogation room in which the story takes place.  The symbol is also emblazoned on the armbands of the two government officials, one a detective, the…

For if there’s one thing that’s become clear over Lanegan’s long and varied solo output, it’s that he’s not always keen on repeating those days. The last time Mark Lanegan rocked, in a proper sense, was on his 2004 album, Bubblegum. His latest, “Harvest Home,” hints at a past spent in the grunge rock trenches — his voice as…

    Recently, CK and I had the opportunity to spend a lovely evening at the new Westin Cleveland Downtown Hotel propertyincluding a night in swanky suite and dinner at Urban Farmer - oh, what a treat it was.First impression? It didn't feel like I was in Cleveland. Second impression? I was in Cleveland (cue smiling, happy staff, reasonable prices and plenty of stunning Downtown Cleveland views) and it was FANTASTIC. There's local art throughout the hotel space curated by LAND Studio and Epstein Design Partners, gorgeous interiors with modern amenities and an overall attention to detail that one…

    On more than one occasion I've stated that I "detox to retox," which basically means, I spin my butt off at Psycle (detox) then enjoy my life as a bubbles and food aficionado (retox).Life is a balance, people.Similarly, there's a fantastic benefit happening on Sunday, August 24 at Crocker Park called SPIN FOR DIN. Same detox/retox idea but for a way more worthy cause, the Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland.My friends at Psycle are bringing the indoor cycling experience to an outdoor setting at Crocker Park in Westlake. With 4 classes to choose from, including one with a live DJ, and all…

  • Inspiring Mud Rooms

    Last year, we helped a friend redo her mud room.  I shouldn't really say 'redo'.  It was more of an empty shell made into a beautiful, functional space for her family. The best thing about the finished room is that she loves it, her family loves it, and it is a perfect place to hang coats and leave wet shoes.  Here was the 'before'.  Very, very rough...  We added a pantry on one side.  Later we added bi-fold doors here. From a very rough cement slab to great looking tile on the floor.  A year later and it still looks beautiful. …

       Last weekend we changed out our old light fixture in our dining room to a ceiling fan.  The room has three windows, but none of them open.  More than once, I've looked across the table at my son  and he's sweating!  Yes, we definitely needed a change!      We decided on the Hunter Fan Company's Claymore 54" ceiling fan with the light kit.  We ordered it on a Friday and it was here before the following weekend.  It took less than an hour from start to finish to take the old fixture down and install the new…

     My husband saved this neat scotch bottle for me.  I love the shape of it.     I started by soaking it in soapy water to remove the labels.     A quick trip to The Graphics Fairy to get this very fun graphic.    I needed a mirror image of it so it would come out correctly on the transfer paper.   I tried to print it off in color, but my printer wasn't cooperating.  Instead, I printed it in black and white on a piece of iron on transfer paper.       I cut the transfer…

  • GIF: Kyrie Irving, LeBron James, and a dunk

    Scott Sargent
    1 Oct 2014 | 5:04 pm
    While it might not be very fair, Cleveland Cavaliers head coach David Blatt put LeBron James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving on the same team during the 2014 edition of the Wine and Gold Scrimmage. The outcome, at least in the first half, was just as you’d expect. Irving has always had great handles and a keen eye. James has always been an incredible finisher. It’s still surreal to see what these two can do together over the course of a full season. SportsCenter might have to expand their nightly list to the Top 20 plays, just to give other NBA teams a shot. The post GIF: Kyrie…

  • Find a Way to Stay: Why James Posey Remains a Champion-maker

    Jeff Kasler
    1 Oct 2014 | 9:15 am
    From The Bath House to the bench, James Posey made a living out of being the tie that binds. Now, in the “Homecoming” that few are talking about, Posey looks to bring that same championship-winning mentality to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Prevailing wisdom in the NBA all but demands a true title contender employ at least two superstars, preferably three. The San Antonio Spurs’ somewhat defy that wisdom, though it’s fair to say a general manager is fooling himself if he thinks he can replicate San Antonio’s championship mix of aging superstars and uber role players. The last…
  • 2014 Cleveland Indians Power Rankings

    The body is still warm, but it is time for an autopsy of the 2014 Cleveland Indians. A year ago, I waited a few weeks, but while it is all still fresh in my head, I wanted to get the player power rankings out to you for consumption. The season ended before it should have with the Tribe winning 85 games and falling short of a second straight playoff appearance. However there is a lot to be excited about in the years to come. As always, this list is subjective and based on how the full season played out. When I produced this list after the 2013 Wild Card loss to Tampa Bay, many scoffed at my…
  • ESPN piece documents Josh Gordon’s drug tests

    The great Liz Merrill has a piece in the soon-to-be released “Cleveland Issue” of ESPN The Magazine which chronicles Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon, his struggles with marijuana, and the tests he is forced to endure under the NFL’s substance abuse program. Josh Gordon has two hours to pee in a cup. To prepare, he is drinking a bottle of water — natural spring, not carbonated, because he hates that — and has left ample time to get back to his home base, a bathroom in his downtown condo near Lake Erie. The call came earlier this afternoon, and Gordon…
