Vikings Sophomores Start 2017 Strong

a solid start by two sophomores in the paint from game one.

CLEVELAND, OH (TM216) — While the ladies of the Wolstein Center are in a countdown for tipoff on Thursday, those of us watching from the outside can enjoy analyzing a solid start by two sophomores in the paint from game one.

Cleveland State (0-1) enters this season with an abundance of experienced youth. Sophomore ASHANTI ABSHAW led all scorers with 22 points to start the season, now with 60 total starts in her young career. We will talk more about Ashanti soon, but for the purpose of this article we spotlight Vikings’ “artists in the paint” finishing with a most balanced stat line.

Sophomores JADE ELY and MARIAH MILLER each adding thirteen points for the vikings, a career high for Miller. Add in eight points for Miller, and the Milwaukee native was just two rebounds from a double-double.

“i think currently Mariah Miller is probably playing the most consistently,” says coach Kate Peterson Abiad (15th season), “she always gets on the boards and she makes her shots around the bucket.”

That consistency can be added to efficiency, those 13 points coming on only nine attempts.

“She doesn’t really try to create many things, she takes them in the offensive flow and she’s been very successful doing that…she plays system basketball”

Along with Miller, Jade Ely also supplementing her scoring ability by creating shots for those around her. Leading the team win assists (4) and tied for a team high with steals (3), the Sophomore able to make the most out of her first start on the season.

“We crashed the boards and attacked the paint really well tonight,” says Ely, “just taking everybody off the dribble really creates an open shot for our other teammates.”

For Ely and Miller it is the second go around after contributing in year one. Add that to the already experienced contributions of seniors OLIVIA VOSKUHL’s seven rebounds and three steals, as well as eight rebounds for SHADAE BOSLEY, and the Vikings sophomore duo can truly become an X-Factor for this Vikings all around team play.

“Our sophomores are a big part of what our future is… they’re going to bring a lot to our team.Coach Peterson Abiad.

Kareem Hunt and Cleveland Dominate The NFL… It’s Just Not The Browns

Cleveland Dominates The NFL… It’s Just Not The Browns

– – –

As the lights of Monday Night Football shine bright in Kansas City’s Arrowhead Pond, eyes around the league take focus on the red #27 jersey of Kareem Hunt. And why wouldn’t they? With 402 rushing yards entering week four, Hunt is currently the league leader in rushing and the reigning AFC Offensive Player of The Month. 

Kareem, the perfect ground weapon to compliment one of the top Tight Ends in football, two-time All-Star, Travis Kelce. An athlete that, much like Hunt, was drafted in the 3rd round of the NFL Draft.

A national spotlight. An opportunity to start the season 4-0. and one of the most dangerous offenses in the NFL.

A cross country flight of 2,341 miles from The Arrowhead Pond the contrast could not be more striking.

On the shore of Lake Erie sits First Energy Stadium, quiet. Still sitting cold with the bitter memories of a 31-7 defeat from the afternoon before. Rather than an undefeated season, the Browns are a winless 0-4, following an offense that was entirely stifled by a fellow winless team just the day before.

How much would the Browns benefit from talent the level of Hunt and Kelce…

Is it not poetic that the Browns selected five draft picks over a future record breaking running back that played his high school football just 18 miles from FE Stadium (Willoughby South)?

Is it not poetic that the Browns selected two players over a future two time All-Star playing his high school ball just just 10 miles from FE stadium (Cleveland Heights)?

Who did the Browns select in stead? Barkevious Mingo, Josh Gordon, Myles Garrett, Deshone Kizer, David Njoku, Larry Ogunjobi, and Jabrill Peppers.

“Get It Free” Review 2017, All Survey, No Products

CLEVELAND, OH — I suppose the old saying may hold true. If it seems to good to be true, it probably is. E-Mails that do not stop, and pushy salesmen, annnnnd worst of all… no socks.

Allow me to preface this article by saying that I can not conclusively say that the spam came directly from these surveys, the calls and e-mails began within days of taking the survey. I can certainly verify that this is a major waste of my time and I received no products. So I’d like to save your time.

While swiping through snapchat, I saw this ad:

IMG_2201

Free Under Armour Socks? Sounds great! However I learned quickly that this would be far from free.

For about 20 minutes I would fill out survey after survey, all linking to or forwarding to another survey. If you reach the end of a survey and are not forwarded, there is not link to click request your product. Annnnd here comes the worst part.

After taking the survey, and selecting that I was interested in hearing about new career opportunities, I have been spammed constantly by different job posting websites. Even after hitting unsubscribe, you are then messaged by additional companies. I unsubscibe JobRight and get an email from JobSerious, then CareerAlerts, then Candidate Point, then Hireable…

And lets not forget the phone calls. Companies calling, very rude and aggressive salespeople…when asked to be removed from the call list, being told no. If you hang up and try to call back to speak with a manager, the number is not in service.

In conclusion, under absolutely no circumstance would I recommend trying “Get It Free.”

CLEVELAND, OH (TM216) — Ask any member of the St. Edward Eagles their thoughts senior Omar Fattah, and you’re likely to get some responses like this:

As St. Eds hits the road for their season opener in the Kestone State with Erie McDowell, St. Eds has their eyes on another run toward the post season. If they are to achieve that goal, plenty of motivation will be coming from Fattah.

Joe Thomas’ TOP 10: Tweets of 2017

The man, the myth, the legend… of twitter.

CLEVELAND, OH (TM216) — For one glorious moment, lets forget the Quarterback competitions, forget the neck and neck race for Punter and realize…. Joe Thomas is in a race with himself for greatest social media influencer in Cleveland sports.

While we do get hyped in the weight room dancing with Lebron, and take in relationship goals from Joe Haden, it is Joe Thomas that seems to prove day in and day out the Hall of Fame level of twitter royalty that is his twitter account.

Without any further ado… we give you, the Top 10 Joe Thomas tweets…for 2017.

10.) The knork. We’re not sure where this invention came from, but we are proud to say that Joe is putting it on the map.

9.) It is not often that professional football players invite the level of interaction with fans that we get to enjoy with Mr. Thomas. Caption contest have become a frequent occurrence in Joe’s Twittersphere.

8.) The pranks. Rookies… veterans… fans… coaches.. beware. We have a hall of famer with a sense of humor in the locker room!

7.) Joe appreciates a good Harry Potter pun. Which house would Joe be in? Almost certainly Gryfindor.

6.) Joe is not afraid to take on the man… in this case, the man that has not made flat bottom water bottles. A struggle I think we can all relate to.

5.) Yes. No one is safe from the practical jokes.

4.) Lest we never forget.

3.) Cleveland has been ALL IN for the NBA Finals for the past three seasons, even with twitter glory, Joe will never get a big head.

2.) It is now a yearly occurrence, how will Joe blow us away on picture day? This year… smooth.

1.) There is so much to love in one tweet. The subtle jab at United airlines, dominant Browns play, and yes…. squashing a Pittsburgh Steeler. This tweet, is a masterpiece.

To the Social media mind that we do not deserve but are so greatful for his service. Thank YOU Joe Thomas. Your Certificate of Appreciation is in the mail.
