Browns beat out Bills for Costner comedy

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

For as long as I have written for this blog, I have chronicled the Battle of Lake Erie between Cleveland and Buffalo for the right to be called America's most tortured sports city. It turns out I wasn't the only one paying attention. "Draft Day" is a soon-to-be filmed sports comedy ...
