Browns improve their QB situation

On Friday afternoon, the Cleveland Browns announced that had signed the quarterback Josh McCown.

The 35-year-old signed a three-year deal. Last season with Tampa Bay he started eleven games and passed for over eleven touchdowns and over 2,200 yards.

It appears that Brian Hoyer will not return to the team. As the Browns do not deserve the talent that he brings.

What does this mean for Johnny Manziel? Well, if you read Down the Line Sports and Entertainment often you know that I have been very critical of the second year player from Texas A&M. I still can say that Republicans have more faith in John Boehner (Speaker of the House of Representatives) than what I have in the Cleveland Browns or Johnny Manziel.

Quail Hollow to host the Presidents Cup

Team International and Team U.S. will battle in the 2021 Presidents Cup at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, North Carolina.

“Charlotte is a major hub of business in the Southeastern United States with a growing economy and broad base of sports fans, and the Presidents Cup matches perfectly as we look to bring it to exciting, emerging markets and allow a new fan base to experience the competition, pageantry and international goodwill that the event represents.” US PGA Tour commissioner Tim FInchem said.

The course has been home of the Wells Fargo Championship since 2003.

The U.S. holds an 8-1-1 advantage in the event.

Opinion on Lucha Underground

I’ve been watching Lucha Underground for the past month and I can finally give an educated opinion about the product. The show is a great hour worth of action. All of the behind the scenes action may take a total of five minutes.

What I love:

1. Everything backstage. The backstage is cinematic a suspenseful. It’s just like you get to watch a quality television show in between wrestling matches.

2. Usage of talent. Lucha Underground uses their talent the same way that Ring of Honor uses theirs. Only a couple of luchas have appeared on back-to-back episodes. They definitely do not run a risk of over exposure, however it is difficult to keep track of some storylines.

3. Lighting. The lighting makes everything seem more dramatic.

What I hate:

1. Intergender matches. In wake of the Ray Rice scandal I would think that promotions are staying away from this entirely, but Lucha Underground has had a male versus female match in two of the last four weeks. To me the best wrestling is the wrestling that is believable. There is no way a man can truly hit a woman and she bounces back up and then later pin him. I understand if there needs to be a blow off but not just because the GM does not like a character.

2. Gimmick matches. I like gimmick matches just like everyone else, but the ones that make sense. For example, as I said previously I don’t like male versus female matches. Seeing a female lucha team with a “little person” and “flamboyant” guy defeat the three tough hombres is just not believable. I have seen some tough women, homosexuals and little people, but to see them get dismantled the way that I seen the get whipped and still win is unheard of especially when the opposing team is made up of three bad asses.

3. Who am I to pull for? As a heel fan I am unsure of whom to pull for. I suppose it is because I have not watched it from the beginning, but at some point fans need to know who to root for.

I must say that I like the show and will continue to watch. It brings a different look and energy to the product. You can find Lucha Underground on the El Rey network. Check your local listings.
