The Tax Man Collects From Everyone, Even The Jocks

Tax season is upon us. From now until April, Americans get to enjoy the annual reminder that Uncle Sam is not the cool uncle. » 2/03/15 9:01pm 2/03/15 9:01pm

At Least Cleveland Still Has Great Beer

The mayor of Boston went on CNN this morning to talk about a snowstorm that hadn't begun yet. That is insane. I realize part of my reaction is based on being old enough to remember when CNN trafficked in weightier matters than weather porn and celebrity gossip, and I also concede that the storm heading this way seems… » 1/26/15 4:00pm 1/26/15 4:00pm

Cleveland Zoo Owl Betrays Her City, Predicts LeBron Will Stay In Miami

Tawny just did you dirty, Cleveland. You provide a home for her in the Cleveland Zoo, and this is how she repays you. » 7/10/14 2:30pm 7/10/14 2:30pm

Cleveland Politician Proposes Tying Stadium Money To Wins

Last year, voters in Cuyahoga County approved a 20-year extension of a sin tax to pay for upkeep on Cleveland's three pro sports stadiums. Today, one elected official presented a proposal to tie part of that payout to the teams' performance. He calls it, a little obviously, a "win tax." » 6/05/14 3:05pm 6/05/14 3:05pm

Cartoon Foresaw Asshole Redface Guy A Decade Ago

As if that dumbass-Indians-fan ordeal couldn't get any more surreal, it turns out one cartoonist depicted almost the exact situation in 2002. » 4/07/14 4:20pm 4/07/14 4:20pm

Indians Fan On His Redface: "It's Cleveland Pride"

Remember all that "IIIIIIIIIIII'm probably fucking up here" supposing we did yesterday? Yeah, about that: our redface dude had no problems with his behavior and was actually in the process of setting this Native American straight about his belief that Chief Wahoo is an offensive and racist caricature. » 4/05/14 3:18pm 4/05/14 3:18pm

Cleveland Indians Fan In Redface Meets A Native American

For all the shit we give wrong idiot Dan Snyder, there's really no question that Cleveland's Chief Wahoo is clearly and by far the most ridiculous mascot in sports. A bunch of fans have been "de-chiefing" their gear for a few years now. This guy went the other way. » 4/04/14 4:11pm 4/04/14 4:11pm

Cleveland Meteorologist Delivers Entire Forecast Without Word "Heat"

No, Clevelanders aren't bitter at all about LeBron James claiming his second straight NBA title. We're sure WEWS chief meteorologist Mark Johnson excised the word "heat" from last night's postgame late local news forecast for reasons entirely unrelated to basketball. » 6/21/13 4:06pm 6/21/13 4:06pm

No One Notices The Spurs Because No One Notices San Antonio

Here's a working barstool-grade theory as to why, during its dynastic run to four (perhaps soon five) titles since 1999, America still embraces the San Antonio Spurs with a yawn and a why are you still here? squint. This phenomenon has flustered if not baffled sports cognoscenti for years. But they play pure,… » 6/08/13 4:11pm 6/08/13 4:11pm

Map: Which Parts Of The Country Were Calling Ray Lewis A Murderer…

The map above shows the concentration of geolocated tweets sent during the Super Bowl that contained both the words "Lewis" and "murder." We were looking for references to Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, who in 2000 was charged with murder in the stabbing deaths of two men after an Atlanta Super Bowl party (he… » 2/07/13 10:30am 2/07/13 10:30am

New Browns Head Coach Rob Chudzinski May Have The Clevelandest Surname…

As strange as it was to see the Browns fire Pat Shurmur after a 5-11 season—after all, isn't that merely upholding The Browns Way?—it seemed even more peculiar for them to hire in his place a 44-year-old without a lick of NFL head-coaching experience. » 1/12/13 1:15pm 1/12/13 1:15pm

It Sucks To Be Brandon Weeden, Vol. 5: The Browns Are Already Publicly…

First, he was trapped under a flag before ever playing a down in the NFL. Then, he was listed as 129 years of age on the Browns game program, which only served to draw attention to how old Brandon Weeden really is—29, way old for a rookie. Then, couldn't compile his high school stats because, well, he was… » 11/10/12 2:35pm 11/10/12 2:35pm

Birth Of A Rumor: How The "LeBron James's Love Child" Story Went Viral

It's official: the annual damaging and unfounded rumor about LeBron James's personal life has become an offseason tradition. Two years ago, it was Cleveland teammate Delonte West having sex with LeBron's mother Gloria. Last year, it was Rashard Lewis having sex with LeBron's girlfriend, Savannah Brinson, a rumor … » 7/10/12 1:20pm 7/10/12 1:20pm

Chris Perez Can't Stop Saying True Things About Cleveland Fans

Didn't we do this, like, a month ago? "Guys don't want to come over here and people wonder why," and "Nobody wants to play in front of 5,000 fans," and so forth. The Indians closer actually got a standing O the next time he entered the game, and Cleveland is just a measly half-game out of first, so we thought all was… » 6/26/12 6:10pm 6/26/12 6:10pm
