    It all seems par for the course for Cleveland. Baker Mayfield bounced back from a rough first week to lead the Cleveland Browns over the Joe Burrow-led Cincinnati Bengals, 35-30, on Thursday night. And approximately 6,000 fans were fortunate enough to watch in person when Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced earlier this month that 6,000 could attend despite the COVID-19 pandemic. The Browns (1-1) prepared fans with a detailed video on their website that delved into social distancing and safety protocols for FirstEnergy Stadium. Everyone attending had to sign a “health promise” and had specific entry times and locations. There...

    The woman who organized Saturday’s parade of Trump supporters driving the I-275 Loop around Cincinnati, Ohio says she only expected fifty, maybe a hundred people to show up. Instead, Karen Mills got thousands to turn out for a parade that stretched for miles on the inner and outer loops and was cheered by supporters who gathered on overpasses. One supporter towed a tank in the parade. One planned staging location turned into nearly three dozen. Mills said the parade was also intended to show support for police. The nearly 84 miles long I-275 encircles Cincinnati and runs through Ohio, Kentucky...

    Cincinnati Reds announcer Thom Brennaman said a homophobic slur between innings during a game Wednesday night, leading to his removal from the broadcast for the remainder of the game. Ahead of the seventh inning in the Cincinnati team’s game against the Kansas City Royals, Brennaman was heard saying the slur. During the second game of the team's doubleheader, Brennaman apologized for the slur on the air. “I made a comment earlier tonight, that I guess went out over the air, that I am deeply ashamed of. If I have hurt anyone out there, I can’t tell you how much I...

    The longtime play-by-play man for the Cincinnati Reds exited the broadcast booth Wednesday and begged for forgiveness after video showed him using a homophobic slur on a hot mic earlier in the day. “One of the f-g capitals of the world,” Thom Brennaman said on the Fox Sports Ohio TV broadcast during the first game of a scheduled doubleheader between the Reds and Royals in Kansas City. A few seconds passed before Brennaman, seemingly unaware his comment was made on-air, recited a promo for the network’s pregame show. The 56-year-old later exited the second game after videos of the incident...

    “Are you tired of living in a dictatorship yet?” Republican state Rep. Nino Vitale wrote in a post on Facebook Tuesday after Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine, a Republican, announced the mask mandate. “This is what happens when people go crazy and get tested. STOP GETTING TESTED! It is giving the government an excuse to claim something is happening that is not happening at the magnitude they say it is happening.” Vitale called into question why the new order wouldn’t go into effect until Wednesday evening, saying “if this is such an urgent matter, why wait almost 30 hours? They make...

"To me, it should be a positive place. I want to make sure when people talk about our stadium that it's a positive because it should be."
