This is sucking the life out of me...

...well, not really but you know what I mean. I hate to be a downer, but none of my teams have won since Friday night's Game 6 Cavaliers win in Cleveland. The Tribe looks terrible right now, with a season-high 5-game losing streak after last night's 7-2 debacle. The script was went pretty much the same as it has lately... Paul Byrd pitched 5 strong innings (only giving up 1 hit!), and, of course, the offense struggled. So with a slim 2-0 lead in the 6th, Byrd completely unraveled. After the dust settled, Indians pitchers (Byrd, Jorge Julio, and seldom-used Craig Breslow) gave up 3 home runs in the final 3 innings and have now given the White Sox a ton of confidence. And to rub salt in the wound, Jim Thome hit another home run against his former team. At least I'm not the only one who's frustrated.

Maybe I need to start following the Gladiators more closely. I just checked and they did actually win on Saturday, moving to 7-4 on the season, so scratch my comment above. Our teams haven't won since Saturday. That makes me feel a LOT better. Sigh.

Time to start following summer football more closely?

Browns Update: More bad news from Berea and the season is still 3-1/2 months away. It looks like we have lost a cornerback for the season to another injury. Great. But there was some good news yesterday - super a-hole agent Drew Rosenhaus stated that Kellen Winslow, Jr. will be in June minicamp and July training camp, instead of holding out for a new contract.

Cavs Update: The Chicago Bulls, fresh off their draft lottery win, might be interested in Eric Snow as their next head coach. Personally, I doubt the Cavaliers would allow this, especially since Snow's expiring contract will be so valuable as a trading piece this year. We'll have to keep watching to see what happens.

Finally, on a totally unrelated note - SplitVizionz over at RCF put together this incredible image of a Zoolander parody featuring some of our Cavaliers. Maybe the target audience is small (Zoolander fans & Cavalier fans) but I nearly pissed myself when I first saw it. Nice work.

OK..that was flat out disturbing but definitely more palatable than Red Sox fans.
