Dark Day

Sunday, December 23, 2008 - a dark day for Cleveland sports. By approximately 4:15 P.M. the Browns pissed away a golden (sorry for the pun) opportunity to get into the playoffs via the front door... instead we have to hope and pray for the proverbial back door entry. Derrek Anderson chose the worst possible time to revert back to the second string QB we thought we had during the preseason. Sorry dude... that game is ALL on you. Anderson's had a nice season so I'm not going to pile on. But he has absolutely no touch whatsoever. Anderson may get one of our receivers killed with his high throws and is incredibly bad at timing patterns like quick slants and crossing routes. 13 points from turnovers in 1:30... ouch! I would've taken down 6 at half with the way we played to that point thank you very much. And we dominated the second half to rub salt in our wounds.

Then by 6:45, which was like 5 minutes after tip off, the Cavs were down double digits to the West Coast Golden Sate Warriors. At the 19 point deficit mark, I turned it off. Blown out by the Knicks, beat the Lakers, lose to the Warriors... playing just like the Eastern Conference Champions we all thought they would this year. Honestly right now, you never know what you're going to get from our Cavs. They could lose to ANYBODY.. .including the Knicks, T-Wolves, Grizzlies, Duke, or the U-Conn & Tennessee Women's teams.

Welcome to Cleveland... Welcome to Cleveland Sports Torture.
