What's the Word (June 2017)

You might say that most of our staff are “sports nuts.”  Or at least they claim to be, so that they can wear Cleveland oriented wear at work.  Spring brings our national pastime, baseball, back into our daily schedules since they play 182 games!  We always celebrate MLB’s Opening Day with a festive luncheon, including hot dogs, potato chips, baked beans and other baseball fun food.  This year’s lunch was on Monday, April 3rd.

 And, like most people, we love to eat.  This year we were treated to a fabulous potluck luncheon catered by our very own production staff before we broke for the Easter weekend.  Many of the dishes had a Latino flavor to them and boy-o-boy was it just yummy!  Secretly, we are all hoping that they do it again soon!

Cavaliers fall short in the Finals

Our defending NBA Champion Cavaliers won the Eastern Conference in fine fashion after finishing as the #2 seed.  The team then faced the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals for the 3rd year in a row.  Unfortunately, the Warriors were too much to handle and they won in 5 games for their 2nd championship in 3 years.  LeBron James averaged a triple double in points, rebounds and assists for the entire series, a remarkable feat even for the best basketball player in the world.  It is very likely that the same 2 teams will meet again next year.  The young off-season has already proven to be noteworthy, as the Cavs recently departed ways with their General Manager.

 

Indians are finally playing to a high level

The Cleveland Indians got off to a slower than expected start of the MLB season. As June comes to a close they are starting to heat up, especially Edwin Encarnacion, the big off-season free agent signee.  They currently sit atop the Central Division with the 4th best record in the American League.  Several of the key players, namely Lindor, Brantley, Ramirez and Kipnis, are in the running to play the All Star game.  If the fans are like me, we would rather have the team play and win the World Series!  “This could be our year!”

 

Browns did well in the NFL draft

The Cleveland Browns had the worst record in the NFL for the 2016 season and as a result had the #1 first round draft pick.  The team selected Myles Garrett, the consensus top rated player by most all football experts.  In general, they received high grades for their overall draft, which is certainly a step in the right direction.  There is still lots & lots of work to do to make this team respectable. So far, so good.  This town will absolutely go nuts if they can pull it together. Let’s go Browns!
