In the dead of winter, as the rest of the city scurries to their local grocery stores to stock up ahead of the 4 to 8 inches of snow that is about to fall across the region, I sit down in front of my picture window. The curtains are drawn back and I sit, with the lights off, admiring the show. To most it is a scene of school closings, hazardous road conditions, and shoveling. To me, it is so much more.
It’s a story as old as time…
Okay, we just took Joe Thomas to anchor the Offensive Line. It’s the 22nd pick, who do we want to carry the Browns into the postseason?
