Well, here I sit 24+ hours removed from the greatest day in Browns Football in 18 Years… The Browns pulled out a win against their heated rivals Pittsburgh yesterday to the tune of 24-22, with a defensive stand on a 2-point conversion and a 3rd down run by Baker Mayfield to seal it. The Browns finish 11-5 and have the 6th seed in the playoffs. Ironically they have to face those same Pittsburgh Steelers next week in Heinz Filed, Sunday night at 8:15 in prime-time on NBC. If you watch the show every week you know that I have been a Browns fan for over 45 years and have grown up and gone through adulthood with disappointment after disappointment in seeing the Browns lose while being close to the promised land. I have witnessed the drive, the fumble, red right 88 (YES, I’m that old) Art Model moving the franchise to Baltimore, and yes, 21 years of the rebirth of the Browns since 1999, where for the most part they have been in the cellar and have barely competed over those years. The reason I celebrate now is that they made the playoffs, and that is an accomplishment in and of itself, not because it has been 18 years, but because the franchise looks to be moving in the right direction for the first time in years, and I am excited about the future. So, let me enjoy my moment for the next 6 days and we shall see what happens from here.
So with that off my chest, welcome to the very first blog post of the new site, sportsnerd.show. This website is dedicated to the branding of a weekly Livestream myself and three of my good friends do on Sunday Nights across multiple platforms, FaceBook, Twitter(Periscope), Twitch, and Vimm.tv. Vimm.TV is on the Hive Blockchain and is built around cryptocurrency, a venture I have been involved in for two years. We spend 90 mins talking sports, all sports, and it has been my baby for nearly 8 years… The problem tho is… the audience… we really don’t have one except for 8 or 10 of our devoted fans who have stuck with us through thick and thin for all of those years. We have a blast each and every week and this time of year is the best for us because we are all die-hard NFL football fans and with the playoffs beginning this week, we are all hyped up about the run to the Super Bowl in Tampa. It’s been a weird year because of COVID, I have a full-time job with a retirement solutions company and have been working remotely from home since March. I am blessed and lucky in that I have not lost any income because of the company’s flexibility to be able to have the entire employee population work from home, so in that, I am blessed.
My content will be sports heavy, to include all football, NFL & NCAA, NHL (Go Bolts!!), MLB, and yes… NBA… Sometimes I will split off and talk about pop culture and other news in the world that interests me, but the majority will be sports content. I will provide frequent content and will interact with anyone that wants to have a discussion. As an old sports fan, I can cover nearly 5 decades of sports and this will be my legacy, discussing sports with my friends, interacting with other sports fans, and hopefully make an impact of some sort before it is all said and done. I am not sure right now where this will take me, but it will be a journey. Most of all, I invite everyone to check out our show Sunday Nights at 7 pm Eastern time in the US on Facebook, Twitter, Twitch, and Vimm… I promise you will come out of it with a smile on your face. In the meantime, I ask that you like and share the site and join us this weekend…
