CLEVELAND – Sometimes the stories that follow the NFL Draft are better than all the speculation that precedes it. This is one of those times.
A couple days after new Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater told Dan Patrick that Cleveland was “not the place where I wanted to be,” the Browns quarterback coach Dowell Loggains said the team’s new star, Johnny Manziel, pushed them to draft him.
Saying the Browns “knew” the Kansas City Chiefs would take Manziel at #23, they traded up to #22 after the former Texas A&M Aggie sent the following text: “I wish you guys would come get me. Hurry up and draft me because I want to wreck this league together.”

2. St. Louis Blues, 1929 RKO/Sack Amusements FREE Screening (one of several shorts), Feb. 26th, 7:30pm, Rock Hall - This sixteen-minute short film shot in Astoria, Queens, New York City, is blues singer Bessie Smith’s only screen role. In it, she plays a long-suffering wife of an uncaring gambler. Co-produced by W.C. Handy, author of the title song, the film also features Isabelle Washington (sister of actress Fredi Washington) who plays the “other woman.” Pianist James P. Johnson and the Hall Johnson Choir accompanied Smith and added to the overwhelming pathos of her singing, making this dramatized interpretation of the blues a true film classic.2 of 6
