Browns Yesterday & Today: Always the Kardiac Kids Bud will tell stories about the Browns, past and present, with his own distinctive, offbeat and irreverent point of view. From locker room stories, to behind the scenes in the coaches box, Bud had amazing access through the years, and will answer the ultimate question: Why do we still love this team?
During his 30 plus years in sports writing, columnist Bud Shaw has covered more than a dozen Super Bowls and World Series, eight Masters golf tournaments, the PGA and U.S. Open golf championship, six Olympic Games, the Ryder Cup, the NBA Finals, the Stanley Cup Finals, the Daytona 500, the NCAA Final Four and the U.S. Open tennis tournament. Shaw came to The Plain Dealer in 1991 from The National Sports Daily where he worked in Chicago and Detroit. He has also worked for newspapers in Atlanta, San Diego, Philadelphia, New Jersey and western Pennsylvania. Over the last several years he has written “Shaw’s Spin,” taking an offbeat and sometimes irreverent look at the world of sports and the people who make a living in it. His “You said it” column segment gives PD readers a twice-weekly forum to comment on the Cleveland sports scene.
The goal of the Cleveland Stories Dinner Party is to bring to life some of the fun, interesting stories about Cleveland’s past – from sports, to rock ‘n roll, to Millionaire’s Row, — the series will focus on tidbits from Cleveland’s past that will really thrill the audience. The Music Box is presenting this series in partnership with the Western Reserve Historical Society’s new Cleveland History Center. We think the Cleveland History Center is one of the most important museums in Cleveland. An unknown gem that Clevelanders should know more about, and support. It is the only museum in Cleveland dedicated to preserving and documenting the history of Cleveland. The Cleveland History Center includes two mansions, the Crawford Auto Aviation Museum, Chisholm Halle Costume Wing, Research Library, Kidzibits Hands-On Gallery, rotating exhibitions, and the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel.
