Garfield Heights took down St. Ignatius last night in some hot Cleveland Regional Final action to head to the state semifinals. The Bulldogs beat the Wildcats (this was one of probably like 3,000 Bulldogs-Wildcats meetings this weekend) 70-69 in two overtimes, and every single quarter ended with someone beating the…
When the Buffalo Bills made Kathryn Smith a full-time coach in January, Cleveland sports radio host Kevin Kiley did not like the hiring. “She couldn’t possibly be qualified to the same level that a man could be qualified to do that,” Kiley said on his Jan. 21 show on 92.3 The Fan. Thursday night, Kiley went on…
Good work by the student section at Sheridan High School (Ohio). These kids distracted their team’s opponents with a fake pregnancy, and it worked.
Congratulations to the person/people who planted a tree between the pitching mound and home plate on the baseball field at Franklin (Ohio) High School. This is an excellent prank, even if the school’s athletic director wasn’t as impressed.
A late, controversial technical foul in Ohio's Division II state championship game last night allowed Defiance High School to force overtime and eventually win the title over Cleveland Central Catholic after CCC's Antwon Lillard was called for hanging on the rim with less than a minute remaining in the game.
Yesterday, we learned that Timofey Mozgov starred in a fantastic local commercial in which he wore a backwards jersey and repeatedly looked off-camera, but now we know that's not his only spot. Here's another one with him talking to his "favorite day-time bartender." Timofey Mozgov has a favorite day-time bartender?
You might have heard that the city of Oregon, Ohio will change its name for the Jan. 12 college football national championship game between the Oregon Ducks and Ohio State Buckeyes. That's not actually going to happen, according to Oregon's mayor.
Officials cancelled a football game between Garfield Heights (Ohio) and Collinwood High (Ohio) in Garfield Heights Friday night after a cheap shot on the field incited a bench-clearing brawl.
Per the AP, an Ohio politician is proposing the state sell a LeBron James-themed vanity license plate to commemorate the star's return to Cleveland. James signed a two-year contract with the Cavaliers last month, one that allows him to be a free agent as soon as next June.
Remember all the way back to yesterday, when police cars were spotted outside LeBron James's home, leading to all sorts of frenzied speculation? As it turns, the presence of those officers actually wasn't a coincidence—his team requested extra off-duty officers for the Bath, Ohio spread specifically for Thursday and…
After Joe Fisher was choked out by Caleb Frasher in the third fight of an event in Columbus, Ohio, Fisher's mom went to great lengths to make sure her son was fine.

A grand jury investigating the 2012 rape of a teenage girl in Steubenville, Ohio, has indicted four members of the Steubenville community for the parts they played in covering up the rape. The most serious charges were brought against school superintendent Michael McVey, who faces one charge of tampering with evidence…
The Rittman (Ohio) Indians aren't having a good year. They're 1-7. So when junior DE Nick Andre had to write a poem for his composition class, he chose as a subject the team's star wide receiver, who happens to be the son of the coach and brother of the offensive coordinator.
The short answer: One team is very good, one team is not so good, and Ohio's high school mercy rule doesn't account for games getting this ugly, this early.
We're legitimately concerned about the health of Ohio Lottery host Karen Kawolics tonight, as she appeared to have significant issues getting through the nightly announcement of the state's lotto numbers.
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.
Protestors in Steubenville, Ohio, today braved crappy weather to rally at the county courthouse and call for further investigation into an alleged sexual assault. In August a 16-year-old girl, in a state of blackout intoxication, was lugged about by two Steubenville High School football players who were later arrested…
Man, there's a lot going on in this TV promo for Fox 8's Emmy-winning Friday Night Touchdown. There's uncomfortable white-guy dancing, a "sax solo" acted out to Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night," a collection of football highlights from schools around northeast Ohio, and lots of lots of cheerleaders. This season,…
