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

NFL Week 6: Browns / Steelers With The Shockers

Chewie & Brad At The Browns Game

I’m still playing catch up here on the blog after rebuilding my site recently. While I watch every single Browns game, I typically only get to a couple per year. This year was no exception as week 6 against the Steelers was my only in-person Browns game this year. Brad was nice enough to invite me to join him and the rest of his crew. Not only did we enjoy an awesome game, but the … Continue reading

2012 Game #8 - Browns Vs. Steelers

It was rivalry week here in Cleveland as the Browns played their biggest rival the Pittsburgh Steelers.  I was lucky enough to be offered tickets to the game by my buddy Brad and I simply couldn’t pass up the chance to watch my two favorite teams do battle.  Yes… I like both the Cleveland Browns and the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Don’t ask.  In any case, we decided to make a day out of it and started … Continue reading

Super Bowl XLV

Super Bowl XLV is set for February 6th, 2011.  The Green Bay Packers will be going for their 4th title in franchise history when they play my beloved Pittsburgh Steelers who will be looking nab their record 7th trophy.  I have to say that I’m really looking forward to this game.  Not just because my favorite team is in there, but also because I think it’s gonna be a doozy. Both teams have incredible defenses … Continue reading

Thoughts For Monday

IU Football

The goddamn jackhammer is back.  We’ve had a week of silence so this comes as a very unwelcome shock to the system.  All I can say is this better be the best restaurant in downtown Cleveland when they’re done. Mondays suck.  They suck even worse when Sunday night is bad. Mobile devices are now officially the bane of my existence.  This includes cell phones, BlackBerrys, etc.  Sure they’re nice when you REALLY need to get … Continue reading

Rooting For The “Other” Team

Browns / Steelers Rivalry

I live in Cleveland, Ohio.  I grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  Anyone who knows anything about the NFL knows that one of the greatest rivalries in the sport is the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cleveland Browns. They hate each other. Their fans hate each other. The two cities hate each other. That said, there are a few people living in Cleveland that like the Steelers and I happen to be one of them.  I’m a … Continue reading
