Food: Gyro George

Family owned and now spotlighted!

CLEVELAND, OH (TM216) — Roar up those engines and roar up those friers, we’re making a food truck stop with this week’s spotlight.

Gyro George has been in business for more than two decades and continues to bring authentic greek food to the people of Cleveland.

Catching up with the daughter of George, Vungelia Glyptis, it is easy to see there is a passion for both family and food

“It’s been really special to have my own parents as my mentors for my entire life, and to see the sacrifices they’ve made for my sister and I to have a good upbringing.” Vungelia said, as work began to wind down for the day.

The business is still rolling, more than two decades after it’s creation, and still bringing authentic greek food to the 216. [interview at bottom of article]

Njoku not impressed with Tyrod’s hair (Tweet)

The roast continues between Browns players on twitter

CLEVELAND, OH (TM216) – – The comedic stylings of David Njoku are on display again on twitter.

The world of tweets continues to be a playground for players as the Browns 2017 first round draft pick now takes aim at newly acquired quarterback, Tyrod Taylor:

If roasting is necessary for the team to come together, this team is already off and rolling. And we will be the beneficiaries of the back and forth.

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.

People: Omar Fattah

“The heart and Soul” of St. Eds football.

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.

“He’s the heart and soul of this team,” says Head Coach Tom Lombardo, “he’s just got great spirit and enthusiasm. He loves to hit, he loves to lift.”
