Embracing Failure as a Browns Fan

Owen 16 - jimmert444

Just spitballing here for a moment… I’m trying to keep it positive, but it’s proving difficult. If the Cleveland Browns finish the season “defeated” (0-16) which is looking more and more likely each Sunday, Hue Jackson will have a head coaching record of 1-31. – 12/17 we host the 7-6 Baltimore Ravens. – 12/24 we’re at the 4-9 Chicago Bears – 12/31 we’re at the 11-2 Pittsburgh Steelers I don’t have high hopes for any of these games if I’m … Continue reading

And while I didn’t get a photo of Scarlett Johansson … Continue reading

In case you were living under a rock and missed it, recently 3 girls who had been missing for over a decade were found alive and well in Cleveland.  Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were rescued from their decade long captivity in part by the gentlemen pictured here: Charles Ramsey.

Our Home Since 1866. Our Pride Forever.

The Sherwin-Williams Banner

A few years ago, when you drove into downtown and would be greeted with a Cleveland icon… LeBron James.  Back in those days LeBron’s banner with his arms outstretched had simply one word on it… “Witness“.  These days as you make your way downtown you’re still greeted with an icon but it’s no longer Mr. James.  These days the icon is Cleveland herself. The “Witness” banner has been replaced with one sponsored by home town … Continue reading
