Episode 32: Goodbye Hue, Goodbye Lue, and Christmas Ale

For our 32nd episode, we got a lot to unpack as far as Cleveland sports are concerned, so we calmed our nerves with the delicious Holiday Donut Cookie holiday ale from Platform Beer Co.

We began the episode with a season-appropriate discussion on when it’s ok to start listening to Christmas music. This chat was inspired by our LOTL Poll of the Week, where we asked y’all if you think it’s ok to listen to Christmas music the day after Halloween. We got interesting results…

After that we discuss our top five favorite TV shows of all time. The LOTL boys had some interesting favorites and some expected favorites, and they had trouble narrowing down just five, so honorable mentions made their way into the discussion.

Once we wrapped up the Poll of the Week and the Top Five, we got into the sad stuff, which includes the the firing of Hue Jackson and Ty Lue. LOTL dissects the firings, of which neither were surprising. However, Hue’s been running his mouth already, so Dan had some words to say about that. Also, the Cavs front office doesn’t seem to know what it’s doing, especially with JR’s latest revelation that he was told he wouldn’t be playing much. Now there are trade rumors, Kevin Love is out for a month with a foot injury, and well, it’s a mess.

On a more positive note, we review Great Lake’s First Pour of Christmas Ale event, and Dan reviews the new Wild Eagle Saloon in Brecksville.

We wrap up with reviews of a Dia de los Muertos parade in Gordon Square and a downtown holiday kick off extravaganza, Winterfest.
