In Cleveland, hope dies last

Some easy links on a chilly Wednesday

Nice article from Mike Lupica in the New York Daily News on how Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum has worked with coach Rex Ryan to build the Jets into Super Bowl contenders.

“Sometimes in this business, the easy part is the talent,” Tannenbaum said in the article. “The hard part is making it work. And that’s where Rex comes in. He enables me to ask the most important question of all in evaluating players: What’s in our best interest? Even if it involves taking a bit of a risk.”

The coach gets so much of the credit, and deserves it. You can’t imagine it happening this way for the Jets without him. But it doesn’t happen this way without Mike Tannenbaum, either. He is the guy who has given his coach the horses. No coach, no matter how much of a talker and motivator he is, ever wants to try it without them.

Here’s hoping, now that everyone is reportedly on the same page at Browns HQ in Berea, that Tom Heckert and Pat Shurmur can build this kind of relationship.


This new development in beer dispensing is cool but still won’t solve the problem of concession stands serving watery swill like Bud Light or Coors Light.


We don’t remember Michael Bianchi and The Orlando Sentinel being upset when it was LeBron leaving Cleveland.

Browns fans like to complain about owner Randy Lerner, but it could be far, far worse.

Over at EPL Talk, they tried to create a European soccer supporters map of the US based on this one for London.

Pretty cool idea; but we were a bit disappointed the Cleveland was not represented.


Finally, Don Kirshner died on Monday. We can remember when his Saturday night show, Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert, was one of the few places to see bands perform.

Boy, does that make us feel old.
