Tuesday is generally not the most fun day of the week, but Terry Pluto’s podcast gives me something to look forward to. I read every one of his articles, and look forward to the podcast every week. I’m a life long die-hard Cleveland sports fan, so it’s great to hear and read coverage on all 3 teams, from one of the best to ever do it. I find myself agreeing with Terry about 99% of the time, which is rare for any media member. He’s very level-headed and informed when it comes to all 3 teams. Also, long-live Dan Labbe!
Simple and to the point love it
