    The Cleveland Browns are taking the whole "dawg" theme to a whole new level. Defensive coaches have given each of their players a spiked black dog collar, and each exceptional effort play will earn the player a dog bone charm to attach to the collar. It sounds beyond strange, but apparently it's working, and the players have taken a liking to the unorthodox incentive. These aren't flashy bling-bling pieces of jewelry. Rather, the collars are black leather with gold hardware and spikes, and look like something picked up at the pet supply store. The charms are also more suitable to be worn by…

Colder air will begin to filter during the day with colder highs in the mid and upper 40s with a changeover by Saturday morning.  Friday will be brisk so keep that in mind as you plan your Halloween night.

    Jack Schron, a Cleveland businessman and current Cuyahoga County Council member, secured an endorsement from the Plain Dealer in the race for Cuyahoga County Executive against Democrat Armond Budish. Through the clever use of obfuscation and the twisting of words on various social media accounts, Schron, a Republican, would also have you believe that he scored a glowing endorsement from the Cleveland Scene just days ahead of the Nov. 4 election. Instead, that so-called "endorsement" and "piece" he keeps referring to is a paid advertisement slapped on the front page of Northeast Ohio's only…

The popular Cleveland artist announced on his Facebook page that one charge that had been filed against him has been resolved.

He thanked everyone involved in the judicial process in a post on social media which is posted below. The liquor license issue still looms. Naji has a hearing Monday, Nov 3rd at 9:00am.

Laura Johnston of the Northeast Ohio Media Group has the details here, with commentary by Scene’s Eric Sandy here and others here, here and here. Of course, calling attention to a deadly virus that has little to no risk of spreading in the U.S. doesn’t threaten advertisers’ bottom lines any and only keeps eyeballs glued to screens, so we get a wall-to-wall freakout in the press. Meanwhile, critical problems that are exponentially more threatening to humanity continue to be ignored or misrepresented in the media…

    The Kansas City Royals have swept their way through three rounds of the playoffs. The Kansas…City…Royals…look like an unstoppable juggernaut destined to win the 2014 World Series. It’s starting to sink in, but it still doesn’t make a ton of sense. The Indians went 10-9 against the Royals this year, finishing up four games behind them in the chase for the 2ndAL Wild Card berth. The two teams appear similar when you look at those two stats, but in reality they couldn’t be more different. The Royals are winning with defense, speed, timely hitting, a lights out bullpen and two really…

But an unexpected and lengthy work trip to the UK this summer sapped pretty much all of my free time, so sitting down to put virtual pen to paper became even more difficult than usual.

Sometimes we see the dichotomy not just from game to game or inning to inning, but from at-bat to at-bat. I’ll get into Danny Salazar’s historically odd start much more later on, but the offense is not blameless in the Tribe’s less than optimal start to the season. The Indians have grounded into 11 double plays as of Saturday, 3rdhighest in the league. Santana (4) and Brantley (3) are responsible for over half of those between the two of them, and…

As a Sonic Youth fan, it sucks that indie rock super couple, Moore and Kim Gordon split. But, I’m not going to get into the blame game, labeling Moore a misogynist pig for ditching Gordon for a younger model. Breakups aren’t easy. Breakups are rarely clean. And when a break up involves one of the most admired underground rock bands in history, it only serves to reason that some with no skin in the game will all of a sudden take a…

          Nude Beach 77 Don Giovanni   While the album title, 77, may suggest the golden era of punk rock, Nude Beach’s behemoth, 18 song, 70+ minute effort actually pays homage to a different Rock ‘N’ Roll tradition — That of the American bar rock band. That old practice of men working for the weekend and then ringing it in with beers and blasting guitars may wax and wane, but never completely goes out of style. Depending on your vantage point, the trio of Chuck Betz, Ryan Naideau, and Jim Shelton may remind you of Tom Petty in the ’70s, The…

Then, we found that career-spanning box set contained a mystery 45. The mystery 45 was confirmed to be from a new album, No Cities to Love (out 1.20 on Sub Pop). And, finally, that new album is leading to a world-wide reunion tour. Not a bad weekend for Sleater-Kinney fans, huh?

Upon it’s release, I found it more diverse and more engaging than most modern shoegazer albums (your best comparison may be ’90s alt-rockers Hum, a band who weren’t afraid to go full metal during their atmospheric rock jams), yet, I also felt emptiness upon my initial listens. Here was a band fronted by an ex-punk, ex-con and I wanted more of the story to come…

I'm also drinking a nice red blend out of my gorgeous new wine glasses, fresh out being in my Mom's garage since my wedding shower in March. I cooked a homemade dinner for my family on my new stove, in my new house and I didn't even care that my kitchen is still in semi-disarray.YOU GUYS, I'm happy.Now, let it be known there is still a TON of work to do.... decorating, painting, etc., but man oh man we are making progress, I see a light at the end of the…

    Random musings on a fall evening in September.I can't wait to decorate my new house. We're officially homeowners and my excitement level for this move has grown exponentially. I can't wait to start this phase of our lives.I also can't wait to put our shower and wedding gifts to use. My bridal shower was in March and our wedding was in May and since then, all of our fantastic gifts have been living in my Mom's garage. Not for long!My new iPhone 6 is pretty swell. It's gold with a clear case and it's sexy.How does one gain 15lbs over the course of a summer? No seriously, HOW?!? Over it.I'm…
  • New house: an update

    Never did I think that when my Detroit-Shoreway townhouse sold and I moved into CK's apartment in Brooklyn that I would be sitting in the same aforementioned apartment typing this blog post almost a year later.I haven't talked much about the struggle that CK and I have had finding a house on this blog because, quite frankly, it's been too painful, stressful and miserable. I didn't realize how much the idea of moving to the south suburbs would affect me. I can be honest and say I wanted nothing to do with it. I want to stay in Cleveland proper, close to the lake, close to my friends, closer to…

    Man, this summer has been fantastic. I can't believe it's Labor Day Weekend all ready. How the heck did that happen? Well, let's look at some photos from the last month and try to piece it all together.Interested in hearing the loudest screams and squeals you've ever heard? Surprise your step-daughter on her 7th birthday with a trip to Cedar Point. The kiddo had the best time ever, conquered new roller coasters like the Gemini (the real one not the photo-op one) and ate the biggest snow cone I've ever seen. Making memories at Cedar Point is one of my favorite pastimes. Marina at Westlake…

    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…

  • Cavs vs Knicks Behind the Box Score: Not the start we were hoping for

    New York Knicks: 95 Cleveland Cavaliers: 90 [Box Score] Post-Game Writing Music: Mark Lanegan Band – “Phantom Radio” The emotion was palpable. That’s not even the right word for it. As the cameras moved in on LeBron’s face before the game, you could read every last emotion he was feeling. The heightened empathy could move anyone caught off guard to tears. The start of this game was everything we thought it was going to be, and then some. The emotional intro videos, the starting lineups, the chalk toss, the crowd. All of it was a level of intensity unto itself. The Cavaliers rode…
  • Cleveland Sports: The Future is Now

    I don’t know what is going to happen tonight. More often than not, when one is looking forward to an event of some sort, there is and end game in mind. But with this—the Cleveland Cavaliers taking the floor for the first time in what is the 2014-15 regular season—all of the anticipation has been more focused around the unknown. What will the team look like together? How will the new coaching staff handle the rotation? What will the player introduction video be? Every team is granted a regular season. Cleveland has long been a town where Opening Day is celebrated with incredible…
  • Four months after “The Letter”, LeBron’s return becomes reality

    It’s around 9 a.m. on July 11, 2014 and I’m in Seattle, WA. I’m passed out, face down, drool hardening on my chin as I lay on a couch that belongs to the cousin of my college roommate, Jack. My eyes peel open as Jack’s phone buzzes across the room on the floor next to the air mattress on which he’s hibernating. Having only gone to sleep a few hours earlier after spending the wee hours of the morning singing renditions of Third Eye Blind’s “Jumper” and the Eagles “Lyin Eyes” to an empty karaoke bar, I am at the very least, a bit foggy. I’d spent the week…

    What exists above is the brand new LeBron James Nike commercial. What exists above may be the best sports-related commercial I’ve ever seen. One team. One city. One goal. Together. The post The new LeBron James Nike commerical will give you chills appeared first on Waiting For Next Year.

    Not since Y2K sent the technology-fearing masses scrambling to their homemade bunkers to swim amongst canned goods and astronaut food has a lone year on the calendar had the potential to bring a people to their knees like what’s about to unfold. Sadly, no Clevelander has a chance to escape it. This very minute, ESPN graphics teams are putting the finishing touches on Jim Brown highlight reels. Network interns are spending their days sifting through dusty back-rooms searching for footage of old Cleveland Municipal Stadium. And, most predictably, announcers across the nation are…
