What's the Word (August 2017)

News about the music scene in Cleveland recently turned some heads.  Quicken Loans Arena, the beloved home of our Cleveland Cavaliers, is now No. 11 in Pollstar magazine's mid-year rankings of the top venues in the United States based on concert ticket sales.  In fact, “The Q” ranks No. 30 in ticket sales worldwide.  In addition, Blossom Music Center, our world class outdoor theater is No. 8 among amphitheaters worldwide, and the Hard Rock Rocksino, No. 46 in the list of top clubs across the globe.  “The Home of Rock-n-Roll” brings many big name acts as well as a lot of old favorites to the area.  Just another reason, to come visit our wonderful home town!

  • Indians are leading the Central Division

    As the postseason nears, it looks as if the Cleveland Indians baseball team will have a chance to repeat last year’s successes.  Currently the team finds itself in command of the Central Division, despite a rash of injuries , including several key players.  Our manager, Terry Francona, seems to be working his magic again and the team recently added a 3-time All-Star outfielder, Jay Bruce, in a “waiver trade” deal.  If healthy, the Indians have a very good chance of going back to the World Series.  Let’s go Tribe!!! Stay tuned!


  • Browns get ready to open the season against the Steelers

    Even though the Cleveland Browns selected Myles Garrett with the #1 overall pick and he has lived up to his billing thus far, the player grabbing the most headlines is rookie quarterback, DeShone Kizer, out of Notre Dame. Kizer has locked down the starting QB position after beating out Brock Osweiler and Cody Kessler.  The Browns face their arch rival, the Pittsburgh Steelers, in the opening game of the season on September 10th.  After a 1-15 record last year, most fans would be happy with a respective season and progress towards a brighter future. Let’s go Browns!


  • Cavaliers make a big trade

First the team departs with the General Manager that brought an NBA Championship to the city and then one of our key players, Kyrie Irving, asked for and was granted a trade.  Supposedly, #2 didn’t want to “play in the shadow” of #23 any longer.  What an offseason!  In exchange for Irving, the CAVS received Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and the 2018 Brooklyn Nets first round draft pick.  While we, the fans, certainly appreciate “The Shot,” which helped propel the team to the 2016 championship, we bid Kyrie a less-than-fond farewell to someone who doesn’t want to play for our team.  Moving onward, many experts believe the CAVS have an excellent chance of returning to the finals for a 4th straight year.  Training camp opens on September 25th.
