Mike Brown out in Cleveland, Buckeyes in..in the NFL and a fire takes out an apartment complex. It was a pretty wild weekend in Ohio. Let’s take a look at everything that happened.
First off a congratulations is in order to the Ohio State football players that were select in the draft, especially Ryan Shazier and Bradley Roby who were selected in the first round of the draft. The other Buckeye draftees were: Carlos Hyde – RB, second round, pick 57 to the 49ers; Jack Mewhort – OT, second round, pick 59 to the Colts; Corey Linsley – OG, fifth round, pick 161 to the Packers; and Christian Bryant – S, seventh round, pick 241 to the Rams. It’s great to see two Buckeyes taken in the first round.
In other sports news, it was just announced yesterday that the “did we make a mistake?” experiment is over in Cleveland, as the Cavaliers fired Mike Brown for the 2nd time in a decade. I’m assuming most people are pretty thrilled with the news, as Cleveland begins to remove their “What were we thinking?” sticker that often plagues their sporting team’s management.
Bad news struck the apartment complex known as The Millington yesterday. During the first of the storms last night, a lightning strike caused one of the complex’s buildings to catch fire, and consequently cause major damage. The flames which were reaching heights of 30-40 feet caused the walls to cave in. It does not appear that anyone was hurt in the fire. The event would also serve as a reminder about those renting homes to look into renter’s insurance, as another powerful storm followed last night, and we are sure to see more in the coming months.
