I wasn't sure where to put this post so I went with the NFL seeing the Browns are the talk of the town.
Thanks to Rich for setting us up for a great weekend.
I had a great day Friday and Saturday.
It was a blast meeting everyone and putting names with the great articles I read every day.
The Browns having a HUGE day was the icing on the cake.
I am glad to be a part of this website and Rich you have done a helluva job.
Thanks again cuz.

Thanks Spoon.

I gotta admit, the weekend turned out great. Beers, shots, food at Flannery's. An awesome Tribe game, a 5-4 win that featured Wedge getting tossed and an inside the parker. More beers after at the Boneyard & Paninis.

And then getting it started all back up at 9 AM.

Draft party turned out great. I could not believe how many people were there. I remember looking around, seeing like 50 people ... then taking a leak, coming out and it seemed like a bus let off in front. We were a couple hundy strong when we took Joe T. You couldn't move through the place. Then the place just went berserk when we saw the "On the Clock" switch to the Browns helmet.

Even got a sweet Cavs win in game three to finish things off.

That will be an annual ritual. Next time though, we gotta get more people to get the hotel room downtown for Friday night. And Im getting a hotel room for Saturday. Seeing all the people walking down to the 7 PM Tribe game Sat night (and the great weather that came outta nowhere) made me not want to return to real life. I woulda liked to finish the weekend off by stumbling down to the Tribe game and staying downtown one more night.

I'll tell you what though, we have a great, great group of guys that write for this website. Great writers, but even better guys.

In addition to the draft party each year, we're gonna start doing more frequent get togethers for the group, and also open it up to the website visitors as well.

Yes, grazi to Rich.

Great, great time this weekend. Lots of great moments, and one of the best sports weekends of recent memory that's for sure.

Also, some funny as shit moments at the Tribe game Friday night and out at the bars before and after. JB almost getting tossed by the concession stand worker and the worker refusing to serve him because he was dropping f-bombs like PacMan makes it rain was classic.

I am missing the hours between 5pm and 7 am. Can anyone place me somewhere? I may have been outside on the patio at Panini's.

Agree with all. I didn't make it up to Panini's on Saturday (too lazy to make another 80-mile round-trip with a shitty car, knowing I would get plastered up there), but Friday was a blast, and I look forward to doing it again.

We have a great thing going here. Rich has put together a first-class product, and I feel privilidged to be a part of it. A lot of talented people and good guys to boot.

Wow, sounds like it was pretty great.

I watched the draft at home with my son (first round at least), then I did some yard work, my son (diligent young lad that he is) kept me updated on EVERY PICK. It was like watching the NFL draft but not having to put up with Kiper and Berman.

BTW, is it just me or were Kiper, Jaws, and Mort going to throw down ?
Coming from a Wolverine, we're the football equivalent of a formerly abused wife of a meth addict who just remarried the safe nice guy. We're just glad we have someone who's aware that it's a rivalry and that tackling on defense is integral. Baby steps.

I know you're not a Kiper fan Furls, but at least the guy can shut up for two seconds. Berman and his act is just soooo played out. Christ.

It does sould like it turned out great. I'm sorry I missed out as well. It would have been fun to see the commenters I occasionally reply to late at night after a few too many. I think I may have said too much...
