Sports Shorts

The smallest crowd in the history of Jacobs Field (12,470) saw the Indians salvage one game from the White Sox series. Cindy and I froze up there last night as a part of a crowd only slightly larger than that...for 10 innings no less. The Wahoos are not exactly bolting from the starting gate. They have the lowest batting average in baseball, and have made at least one error in every game.

News Flash! ESPN.com has an article about bad behavior by student athletes and a lack of discipline by coaches in college football and the words "Ohio State" appear nowhere in the text. And the Buckeyes are looking for a new Defensive Coordinator (again), as Mark Snyder has been named Head Coach at his alma mater, Marshall University.

The Browns' 2005 schedule is out, and they are playing home games on Christmas Eve (Steelers) and New Years Day (Ravens). So I'll be freezing down on the lakefront instead of curled up in front of my TV watching bowl games on 1/1. It'll be worth it if the Browns can take down The Murderer and the rest of the Ravens, maybe even knocking them out of the playoffs or something?? (Such are the lowered expectations of Browns fans.)
