Photo of the Week: Rocks at Edgewater Park

Imagine crashing waves, a warm breeze and toasty hot sand. These images probably invoke an image of a tropical vacation, but in this case I’m referring to our very own Edgewater Park beach in Cleveland. Sure, it’s not exactly a tropical bliss — the strange amount of trash, questionable water quality, and lack of seashells reminds us that we’re up north and not near the equator. But Edgewater Park has a truly enjoyable and aesthetically…

Our topic this week: besides the Cavs, which Cleveland team would you prefer to see win a title next? We got lots of feedback, and the results surprised Dan. We ease right into Indians talk after this, where we…

We also discuss the NBA draft and who the Cavs should pick up…or trade… Then LOTL moves onto the Tribe, who have been heating up more…

The boys begin with an unexpected debate: are Girl Scout cookies good? To Dan and Jordan, this was an absurd discussion, but Paul has some choice criticism regarding the tasty treats. Triggers everywhere! Our hearts were still heavy from that frustrating Cavs loss in game three the night before, but…
