From Distance: Skills Rule the Day

four point play…. 1. Cleveland may not be the city of champions quite yet, but the Browns’ first victory since the Obama administration has certainly given Northeast Ohio a pleasant jolt of confidence. Baker Mayfield made his shortly awaited NFL debut after Tyrod Taylor left the game with concussion like symptons. Baker promptly did exaclty what Browns fans hoped he would. He hit receivers with pinpoint passes while marching the…

From Distance: Face and Fashion of the Franchise

four point play…. 1. Kevin Love has matured into a handsome man. Most NBA bigmen weren’t exactly lookers when they were 15, but Kevin Love’s transformation is rather comical. I’m happy for the big fella, or shall I say the svelte fella. I frequently go back in time and tell my 14 year-old self that everything will be okay. You won’t always be so chubby, but enjoy that hair now,…

From Distance: In a Roundabout Way

four point play…. 1. Tunisia loves its roundabouts. Like much of the non-US world, Tunisia eschews the American style four way stop in favor of the occasionally frustrating wheel of driving “fun”. While engineers have focused on overall rule clarity, volume, and safety when comparing the two systems, it seems one crucial point has been lacking in their data input. Smart Phone use! I know, I know. One shouldn’t text…

From Distance: Back in Orange and Brown

four point play.… 1. I didn’t watch the last 13 games of the Cleveland Browns’ 2017 season. Somewhere between the concussion saga, non-guaranteed NFL contracts, reactions to Colin Kaepernick, and the general sucktitude of Cleveland’s squad, I made the executive decision to stop watching my beloved Brownies. It felt strange. This was a team that I had watched, no matter what, for decades. When I first moved from Ohio to…
