The Puck Drops Here 10.31: Blue Jackets Month In Review #CBJ

Blue Jackets Month In Review
By @CLulovics

After the first month of NHL action, the Columbus Blue Jackets have come out of camp starting the season showing fans that they are the same bunch of scrappy never give up team that they were a year ago. After the game on Tuesday October 28 they are currently 4-5 8 points and sitting 12th in the Eastern Conference only 2 points out of the 8th and final playoff spot though early in the season.

Nathan Horton who the Jackets signed last year hasn't played a game all year and unfortunately doesn't look like he will at all this year. Horton who signed a 7 year $37.1 million dollar contract has been diagnosed with degeneration of the entire lumbar region of his spine. At only the age of 29 his career is in serious jeopardy and could be forced into early retirement. Horton was expected to help the young Blue Jacket team with his veteran presence and scoring ability will be missed but with the depth the team has it shouldn't be a huge problem.

Ryan Johansen who held out of all of training camp along with the entire preseason hasnt missed a beat at all. He currently has a point in every game this season with 5 goals and 7 assists for 12 points. The line of Johansen, Hartnell, and Foligno has developed chemistry from the drop of the puck in the first game. Foligno also has a point in every game that he has played in this season before getting hurt. Johansen has a new record for the Blue Jackets by having a point in 9 straight games and 15 dating back to last season.

The hockey Gods have not been kind to the Jackets early in the season as the injury bug hit the Blue Jackets hard the last week of October. Starting goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky is on the IR after suffering a fractured finger in practice and is expected to be out a couple of weeks. Backup goaltender Curtis McElhinney came off IR after being run into on a block attempt by a teammate in a game against Ottawa. Matt Calvert is out on the IR for about a week with an upper body injury and lost a couple front teeth in a comeback win against the San Jose Sharks. Cam Atkinson took a skate to the face against the Anaheim Ducks but only missed one game against the L.A. Kings and was back in action Tuesday night against the Ottawa Senators. Nick Foligno was taken off the ice on a stretcher in a game against the L.A. Kings after having his head and neck smashed into the referee along the boards and temporarily losing feeling down one side of his body. All tests on Foligno have come back negative and is day to day. There is some good news to come out of the injury front though as second year defense-man Ryan Murray rejoined the team and made his season debut against the L.A. Kings. Boone Jenner (who has resumed practicing with the team and is close to returning to game action) and Brandon Dubinsky is close to returning as well. The Blue Jackets recalled Alexander Wennberg to help out on the offense front. To help out with the goaltending the Jackets recalled Anton Forsberg from AHL affiliate Springfield.  The game on Tuesday October 28 against the Ottawa Senators was not a good one as the Jackets lost three players with an injury. James Wisniewski broke his finger and will be out of action for 1 or 2 weeks. Mark Letestu has been diagnosed with a groin injury and will be out of action as well for 2-4 weeks. Artem Anisimov was checked in the head and has been diagnosed with a concussion. He will be out of action until the concussion symptoms subside.

The top 5 leading point scorers for the Blue Jackets are Johansen with 5 goals 6 assists for 11 points. Hartnell 1 goal 9 assists for 10 points. Foligno 3 goals 6 assists for 9 points. Cam Atkinson 4 goals 2 assists for 6 points. Mark Letestu 3 goals 2 assists for 5 points. Sergei Bobrovsky is 4-4 with a 2.81 Goals Against Average and a .908 Save Percentage while making 207 saves out of 228 shot attempts.

Guys are going to have to step up with the rash of injuries and this is the time for younger players or players who don't get much ice time to provide a spark this team needs. Still early in the season and a lot of people would rather have the injuries happen now rather than later in the year closer to the playoff push but they still have to find a way to win games against both good teams and teams lower than them. They can't play down to the other teams level or they will find themselves losing games that they should win and can put a damper on everyone from fans, players, and everyone throughout the originization. As always Carry The Flag and Battle On!

3 Rivers Rundown With Jaison (@Kratoslives)

A Tale Of 2 Teams (Fighting For Control)
By @Kratoslives

Welcome to the Pittsburgh Steelers starring Big Ben, Antonio "Wiggle" Brown, Heath Miller, Markus Wheaton, Martavis Bryant and guest starring Le'Veon Bell. This is the new air force just ask the Colts secondary, which is now part of the NFL's record breaking game, even though they weren't too happy with their part in it.

Now hold on, this is about 2 teams as I stated in my title. Welcome to the Pittsburgh Steelers starring Le'Veon Bell, LeGarette Blount, Will Johnson & Dri Archer, guest starring Big Ben. This unit will haunt "River Boat" Ron Rivera and the Carolina Panthers front seven for a long time. Bell & Blount may still be running wild in their minds. I know the fans won't forget them no time soon.

These 2 teams are fighting for control of the Pittsburgh Steelers fan base, and for control of the team itself. Which in turn is driving me and the rest of the fan base insane. I'm cracking up right now doing this article. Quit laughing I'm not kidding I'm going nuts about this. Don't believe, me check this out.

Week 1 vs the Browns, the first half was EUPHORIA! I'm jumping screaming and partying like a fool. Now something has happened during halftime to my emotions, 1000% pure DYSPHORIA, stunned silence. I'm searching for a boulder to hide under. How? Really, how could this have happened, I was on cloud nine 15 minutes ago. Could someone have kidnapped our entire offense during halftime. Is Ashton Kutcher shooting a new episode of Punked? That's it, both teams ran into the locker room and switched uniforms, but Ashton still hasn't showed his face pointing at hidden cameras.

Man I feel like I have a split personality, wait a minute that's it. The Pittsburgh Steelers has a split personality. One game they are running the ball down their opponents throats. The next game they are airing it out, too the point they need their own airport. But then it's the second game against the Brown's where nobody showed up except the Brown's. Now that we have found the problem may I make a suggestion, stop over thinking! Your putting yourself in the lost column when you over think.

Stick with what's working, if the passing game is working don't stop. Make them stop you, and if the running game is clicking then ride our horses. Just don't take your foot off your opponents neck until you see this on the game clock 00:00. Now that we have come to a understanding, Mike Tomlin here's my bill, $150. I take pay pal, checks, cash or tickets to a home game. Just remember don't let up on your opponent until the game is over. I'm going to check in on you.

Your buddy, Jaison from Warrensville Hts.

P.S. I now accept all major credit cards.

Leadoff with Lee 10.31.14

By @cleeverizon

The atmosphere in Cleveland was electrifying yesterday. If I didn't know any better, you could have told me it was game 7 of the NBA finals and I would have believed you. It was a Cleveland Cavailier and Lebron James media day. International media, social media, local media... it was all about King James and his homecoming. But the New York Knicks stood in his way. The Cavs lost to the Knicks 95-90. Lebron James was obviously nervous and out of sync with the team. He was 5-15 scoring 17 points but also 8 uncharactoristic turnovers. Kevin Love had a double-double with 19 points and 14 rebounds. The Cavs turned the ball over 19 times, which the Knicks turned into 26 points. Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks shooting 9-17 for 25 points. The Cavs face the Bulls tonight who defeated the Knicks by 24 Wednesday night.

But let's relive this moment

The Cavs and Tristan Thompson are likely to sign a contract extension today. The 4th pick of the 2011 NBA draft will make $5.4 million this year under his rookie contract. His new deal is expected to be 4 years between $40-$48 million over that period. If no extension is signed by Friday, he will play for the qualifying offer of $7.15 million dollars for the 2015-2016 season and then become a restricted free agent.

Anderson Varejao is also expected to agree to a 3 year $30 million dollar contract extension with the Cavs today.

The NCAA sent out a simple tweet regarding Todd Gurley and the University of Georgia's appeal of Gurley's suspension. Which simply states: The membership committee upholds Todd Gurley suspension upon appeal. He will be eligible to play again November 15.

Last night, the Saints defeated the Panthers 28-10 to kick off Week 9 of the NFL season. Drew Brees went 24/34 for 297 yards throwing 1 touchdown and 1 interception. Saints running back Mark Ingram rushed 30 times for 100 yards and 2 touchdowns to go along with Jimmy Graham's 7 catches for 83 yards and a TD. Panthers QB Cam Newton finished with 10/28 passing for 161 yards with 1 rushing touchdown. Next week's Thursday night game will see the Cleveland Browns travel to Cincinnati to face the Bengals.

Diamonds and...Gems? With Cliff G. (@CLG2282)

By @CLG2282

While baseball doesn't always display the gravitating pull on it's fans and heaven sent aura of The Artist formerly know as.., tonight's game 7 was nothing short of rhythmic lyrics set to a hypnotic track.

Watching what was probably the most entertaining MLB playoff series in the last decade,  the San Francisco Giants and Kansas City Royals put on a story book performance that would likely earn a standing ovation from Prince himself. And what better way to end it than with a Game 7 played with near perfection (In a baseball sense anyway).

Both teams came out firing like an old Western cowboy film, sending the starting pitchers to the dugout for good before the start of the 4th inning, like a classic tumbleweed scene. But then the grit of defense reared it's rugged head.

Pulling out all the stops, both managers rotated pitchers. The fielders made play after game saving defensive play. And then, Bumgarner.

While offensively Pablo Sandavol swinging hot a bat, Madison Bumgarner came in and essentially closed the door. In the 5th INNING. Yes the 5th. On only two days rest Bumgarner, the clear highlight of the World Series, pitched lights out for 5 innings of RELIEF. Yes you read that correctly.

In what is the most dominate pitching performance in a playoff series that I've ever seen, "Mad Bum" ended with a total of 21 innings pitched while only allowing one, yes ONE, earned run. After giving up a single to the first batter he faced, Bumgarner gave up only one more hit and struck out four over the next FIVE innings.

Backed by tremendous defensive gems from his teammates,  Bumgarner made pitching in the biggest game on the biggest stage look as easy as warming up in the bullpen. I guess winning the World Series twice before you turn 25 will give you those kind of calm nerves.

After closing out their third MLB title in 5 years, the San Francisco Giants are now getting their name tossed into the dynasty hat. Winning it all every other year, with an anchor of an ace, will draw that kind of attention for your organization.  And kudos to the Kansas City Royals in their efforts and near perfection of "small ball".

Overall, this was a great series. And probably the greatest series that no one ever watched. With the NFL hitting it's stride and the looming NBA opening week, this amazing series will forever be under appreciated because of the marketing mammoths that are the NBA and NFL. Not to mention the very competitive NCAA football. With that said, LeBron is home and the NBA is back. I am very proud and excited (as always) to be a Clevelander today (and forever but especially today) with all the buzz swirling around our city.

Wrestling Lockup with Brandon 10.30.14: #TNA Impact Results

By @B_Rock1978

Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, brought to you by Triple Threat CLE. It's the TNA Impact recap from last night's show. Impact took place from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Some highlights of last night's show consisted of the semi-finals of the Tag Team Tournament to crown new #1 Contenders to The Wolves' TNA World Tag Team Championship. Main event time saw Bobby Lashley defending the TNA World Title against Bobby Roode. Let's get to the recap.

- "Tag Team Tournament Semi-Finals Match": Samoa Joe and Low Ki vs. MVP and Kenny King: Joe with submission wrestling on MVP early in the match. Joe and Ki double team King until King rolls to the floor to talk with MVP. Ki dives over the ropes and takes out MVP and King. Ki gets beat down but bounces back with the "Tidal Krush". Ki makes the hot tag to Joe and Joe ends up locking King in the "Coquina Clutch", but MVP breaks it up. King hits a leaping kick to Joe and covers but Ki breaks it up with the double stomp. Ki lands a "Tidal Crush" on MVP then hits a drop kick on King. Joe relocks the "Coquina Clutch" on King and forces King to tap out.

- Backstage, Devon is on his phone and it appears he has some help in his feud with Bram.

- Inside the ring, Bram says he's going to destroy the brotherhood of hardcore. Bram calls out Magnus. Magnus talks about his past, fighting side by side with Bram and opening the door for British wrestlers to compete. Devon interrupts and introduces his backup......."The Innovator of Violence", Tommy Dreamer. All four men brawl all over ringside and in the aisle. Devon grabs a chair forcing Bram and Magnus to retreat.

- Backstage, Madison Rayne and Taryn Terrell confront each other. Rayne understands why Terrell won't talk to her. Terrell tells Rayne to just concentrate on their tag match with The Beautiful People, later.

- Backstage, "Stone Cold" Shark Boy, is eating hot dogs and taking pictures. Shark Boy says "shell yeah" when asked if he can be the man eater he used to be. No one believes he can, however.

- Angelina Love and Velvet Sky vs. Madison Rayne and Taryn Terrell: Terrell with a rolling neckbreaker on Love, early, for a near fall. Love rolls to the floor but gets rolled back in by Rayne. Terrell goes for a tag but Rayne ignores her. Tarrell continues taking on Love and Sky then goes for another tag. Rayne jumps off the apron and walks off. Terrell begins fighting off Love and Sky after they controlled a good portion of the match. Rayne, returns, and gets in the ring. Rayne lays out Love and Sky then delivers a neckbreaker to Tarrell. Confusion sets in as Love and Sky cover Tarrell for the pinfall. Rayne smiles as she leaves ringside.

- Backstage, Kurt Angle, serving as the special guest referee in the TNA World Title Match later states that if MVP and Kenny King get involved, things will get damn real.

- "Tag Team Tournament Semi-Finals Match": Ethan Carter III and Tyrus vs. The Hardy Boys: The Hardy's double team with "Poetry in Motion" and the "Side Effect" for a near fall. Tyrus and ECIII go on the offense with hot tags back and forth, working on Matt. ECIII hits a necksnap on Matt for a near fall. ECIII goes for a splash in the corner but Matt hits a clothesline and hot tags Jeff. "Whisper in the Wind" by Jeff for a near fall. Jeff hits a "Twist of Fate" but ECIII falls into Tyrus, who tags in and runs over both Matt and Jeff with clotheslines. Tyrus goes to the second rope for a "Vader Bomb", but misses. "Twist of Fate" from Matt and the "Swanton Bomb" by Jeff gives the Hardy's the pinfall on Tyrus. After the match, ECIII is pissed, as he yells at Tyrus.

- Backstage, James Storm, Manik and Sanada claim that tonight the revolution will get bigger.

- Inside the ring, James Storm says he brings new meaning to peoples lives, mentions the good he's done for Sanada and Manik and then calls out Davey Richards. Storm asks Richards if he's thought about the offer of joining Revolution. Eddie Edwards comes out and pulls Richards aside to make sure he's not really thinking of doing it. Edwards tells Storm that Richards would not throw away everything The Wolves have accomplished for Revolution. Richards tells Edwards he can talk for himself and it appears there is a missunderstanding between Edwards and Richards. Storm interrupts and says this is Richards awakening. Edwards calls a referee out and wants Storm in an impromptu match, now.

- Eddie Edwards vs. James Storm: Edwards running knee on Storm for a near fall. Edwards rolls to the floor and backs Manik off who is trying to recruit Richards. Storm lands forearms and kicks on Edwards as Manik and Sanada again try to recruit Richards. Edwards with the backpack driver on Storm for a near fall. Storm hits a hanging DDT on Edwards for a near fall. Storm swings at Edwards with the microphone but misses, allowing Edwards to roll Storm up for a near fall. Storm gets thrown to the floor by Edwards. Edwards hits a moonsault on Storm, then baseball slides Manik. Edwards and Richards begin to argue with each other. Storm hits "Last Call" on Edwards for the pinfall. After the match, Storm nods at Richards as the Revolution leave.

- "TNA World Title Match": Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Bobby Roode, "Special Guest Referee" - Kurt Angle: Lashley uses his power and mat wrestling skills on Roode early. Roode returns and puts Lashley on the mat and tells Lashley to "come on". Lashley again over powers Roode with a suplex and some punches. Roode ducks a clothesline and catches Lashley in the "Crippler Crossface". Lashley gets to the ropes to break the submission. Lashley and Roode brawl on the floor where Roode tosses Lashley into the barricade. Roode hits a "Blockbuster" and a spinebuster for two near falls. Lashley lands a spine buster on Roode for a near fall. Lashley goes for a clothesline, Roode ducks and Angle takes the hit. Lashley spears Roode but only gets a near fall as Angle took a minute to recoup before seeing the pinfall attempt. Lashley goes for another spear, Roode dodges and Angle again takes the hit. Lashley and Roode go to the floor. Lashley goes for a spear, Roode dodges and a TNA Security Guy gets hit instead.
Roode delivers the "Roode Bomb" on Lashley on the entrance ramp. Referee Brian Hebner, runs to the ring and takes over for Angle, who is still unconscious. Lashley low blows Roode and grabs his title. Hebner tells Lashley to drop it, but Lashley clotheslines Hebner unconscious instead. Lashley nails Roode with the title then yells at Angle to wake up and count. Angle comes to and slowly counts with Roode kicking out at two and a half. Lashley blocks a "Roode Bomb" and drops Roode neck first across the top rope. Lashley climbs the ropes but Roode meets him up top and sets Lashley up for the "Roode Bomb". Lashley escapes and sunset flips Roode. Roode, blocks and drops down on top of Lashley with a cradle, scoring the pinfall. Bobby Roode is the NEW TNA World Heavyweight Champion. Impact closes out with Roode celebrating, as his second reign as TNA World Champion begins.

And that's a wrap my friends. Till next time, tap or snap.

Leadoff with Lee 10.30.14

By @cleeverizon

Hello, World! Welcome to Cleveland! Remember us? You had all the funny jokes about us, made fun of our sports teams, and burning river. Called Cleveland Municipal Stadium the "Mistake by the lake". Our sports teams would always make it soooo close but couldn't pull it off. The Drive, The Pitch, Red Right 88. Our superhero left us 5 years ago and the media made us look like savages because some burned jerseys. The only time you felt bad about Cleveland and the good people that live here is when our football team was stolen and moved to Baltimore. But world where are you at now? You're in that city that you made fun of all these years. You came from the west coast, you traveled from the east coast, you left the fun and sun of south beach to come to Cleveland. You're here from Japan, Israel, Germany and from parts unknown to Cleveland! All the stars are in town, from Jay Z to Kevin Hart! This is New Cleveland! Our city will shine in the bright lights, brighter than those in New York or San Francisco. This is New Cleveland! The King has returned to the throne to take over his city! Welcome to New Cleveland! Get ready for the ride!

-The NCAA has ruled that the University of Georgia running back Todd Gurley will remain suspended until November 15th for accepting more than $3,000 from multiple memorabilia dealers. Georgia issued a statement yesterday that they will appeal the NCAA ruling. The NCAA membership committee will review the case this week and can reduce or remove the suspension. Gurley has admitted to violating NCAA rules and has already missed 2 games. Gurley must also repay a portion of the money received and donate it to a charity, along with performing 40 hours of community service.

-Joe Maddon is on the verge to become the new manager of the Chicago Cubs. Once the deal is finalized Maddon is expected to be the highest paid manager in baseball. The Los Angeles Angels currently pay Mike Sciocia $5 million dollars annually.

-Congratulations to the San Francisco Giants as they won the 2014 World Series over the Kansas City Royals 3-2. Baseball truly saved the best game of the season for the last game of the season. Madison Bumgarner was named World Series MVP. He was 3-0 during the series.

-Buster Posey is now a 3-time World Series champ, Rookie of the Year, Comeback Player of the Year, MVP & batting champion.

-Monday evening former Bash Brother Jose Canseco, accidentally shot the middle finger of his left hand off. Yesterday after returning home from the hospital Canseco tweeted out a picture of his hand. He said "I hope I can keep my finger,but I'm grateful it wasn't something worse".

-I was was looking at some press video of the Cleveland Cavs shoot around and noticed a familiar face at the shoot around. It was former Cavalier Damon Jones. So I began to wonder what he was doing there. So I did a little investigating,and found him on twitter under @D19J. Well I guess LBJ got him a job as the shooting consultant for the Cavs/Chargers. Lebron still has a lot of say of what comes and goes in and out of the organization. It is what it is I guess. By @cleeverizon

The Raven Report 10.28: 2014-15 #Cavs Season Preview

The Homecoming. The New Big Three. The New Cleveland
By @neveRWilliams

Everything changed on July 11, 2014. The best player in the world chose us. LeBron James chose to come home to Northeast Ohio and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

But this new Cavs team actually started to take shape before then. Mike Brown was fired as coach on May 12, 2014 after going 33-49. On June 21, it was officially announced that ex-Maccabi Tel Aviv (Israel) head coach David Blatt would be taking the reigns here in Cleveland. Blatt, 55, has been widely considered to be one of the best and brightest offensive minded coaches in the world. It was only a matter of time before he came to the NBA and Cleveland landed him with a 3-year deal worth about $10 million, with a 4th year team option. Blatt also guided the 2012 Russian Olympic team to a bronze medal. Coach Blatt was a 6-time Israeli Cup Champion, 2014 Euroleague Champion and the 2014 Euroleague Coach of the Year.

What's more to say that hasn't already been said about the re-arrival of LeBron James? It was literally one of the biggest NEWS stories in the world. A global figure with exquisite basketball skills and a business mind decided to come back to Cleveland, Ohio and the Cavaliers. The impact of having LeBron back in a Cavs uniform still hasn't settled in for some people. It still feels surreal to many. But believe it Cleveland. The king has come home, slimmed down and ready to lead this Cavs team to its first NBA championship.

But LeBron did not come to Cleveland alone. It started with Kyrie Irving re-signing to a 5-year, $90 million deal. But on August 23, the Cavs and GM David Griffin made another BIG TIME move. The Cavs traded rookie Andrew Wiggins and 2nd year player Anthony Bennett to Minnesota for superstar, all-star forward Kevin Love. Love is seen by many to be the best power forward in the NBA, especially after last season when he averaged 26 points and 12 rebounds per game. After being fed up with the Timberwolves constant years of mistakes and bad decisions, Kevin was ready to get out of Minnesota and onto a team that would be a playoff contender. So, why not be apart of the NEW Cleveland Cavaliers.

So what do you do after you created a new, league feared "Big 3" in James, Love and Irving? You fill up that roster with men who know how to win in basketball. Joining the Cavs this season are veterans Shawn Marion, Mike Miller, James Jones, Brendon Haywood and Lou Amundson. Add in the young legs of rookie shooter Joe Harris and returning young, key players like the fantastic Dion Waiters, energetic Tristan Thompson, Matthew Dellavedova and the rebounding and defensive machine that is Anderson Verajao, the Cavs seem to have the team that can be the best in the East and contend for the title.

Expectations by many see the Cavs winning between 55-65 games, if not more, which would easily put the Cavaliers into the playoffs. While many on the team may be seeing their first playoff action, the veterans will definitely help in guiding them along the way to success. The key will be the meshing of the best all-around player in the game in LeBron James with the excellent from court play of Kevin and Kyrie Irving running the point. Anderson Verajao and Tristan Thompson doing the dirty work and Dion Waiters trying to take a more prominent role with three all stars in place.

What fans need to remember is that even though it make take time to fully gel this squad together, it will and it will be worth it. These Cavaliers are going to be the favorite to win every night of the season. With that, they know that every team will be gunning to take them out every single night they play.

The season of excitement and dreams of a championship all begins on October 30 when the Cavs host Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks.
