Even LeBron James, probably one of the most well-conditioned athletes ever, can be injured. Something like a sprained finger can make an entire community, even league, jittery. That's the beauty of domes - they have very low injury rates, unless hit by an extreme hail storm, in which case I'd still rather have the hail hit our dome than our multimillion-dollar athletes.

The high school football state finals are this weekend, in Canton and Massillon. Unless we have a dome on Cleveland Browns Stadium, Cleveland will never have a chance to host such a meaningful, local event - the entire state would get to see Cleveland in a whole new light.

The Steelers won 3-0 last night, in one of the worst NFL games in years. The field conditions were horrible, due to hard rain after four high school games and a college game. Such conditions may be good enough for the Steelers, but not our Browns.

If the NFL season ended today, the Browns would be in the playoffs, as a wild-card team. And, if the season ended today, the Browns would finish the year with no games played in the snow and ice. Of course, there are five regular-season games left - and a lot can happen in the standings and the weather in December.
