Episode 48: The Momo Hoax, Big Browns Rumors, and a Better Alternative to Guinness

Since St. Patrick’s is right around the corner, we found a lucky brewski to sip on: Bent Arrow Dry Irish Stout from Platform Brewing Co. It’s kind of like a really good version of a Guinness, with a fuller flavor and lightly sweet finish. In this episode, we talk out top five folk monsters, the bizarre Momo hoax, Browns rumors, Cavs improved play, and we preview St. Patrick’s Day in Cleveland and the Cleveland International…

LOTL Sports Take – The Indians Season Predictions

Hello again.  In my last article, we looked at both the history and the current state of Cleveland’s big 3 sports teams.  It is clear that the Cavaliers have fallen hard following Lebron James’s departure to Los Angeles and are in a state of total rebuild.  And while the Cavaliers are at their lowest point in years, the Browns are in the ascendancy. Their fortunes are now higher than they’ve been in years due to…

LOTL Sports Take: A Run Through Cleveland Sports History

As we head into 2019, we have a Cleveland sporting landscape that has quite literally flipped on its head from just a year ago. Just how different is it? Well, 12 months ago, the Cavaliers led by LeBron James were leading the championship charge for a fourth consecutive year, the Indians were coming off of a 102-win season albeit with an unfortunate postseason defeat, and the Browns were winless and fresh off a winless season…

LOTL Sports Take — Browns Season Review

For the past decade, the Cleveland Browns have been the black sheep of the Cleveland sporting trilogy. In comparison to the Indians and Cavaliers, they have been downright awful. From 2008 to 2017 they had a losing record every season. And of recent things were historically appalling, with the team starting 0-14 in 2016 before winning on the penultimate week of the season, and then not winning a game at all in 2017. A year…
