I posted my positions on Hue, in the jump in the lake thread, so I am not going to double the effort, save to say that this guy's life cannot have been easy the last 2 years. I admire his grit. What a mess. I don't think many of us would have fought through it and kept our job, let alone our sanity. 

For whatever the reason, I have had my fill of horse-schidt. It's time to win football games.

Perhaps I just finally shed off the snake-skin of having no team and watching loss and ridicule. Maybe I needed a good 19-year bowel movement to get back to my self? I really don't know WTF it is, but I know this.....

  • Im tired of going to Vegas in the fall and not enjoying the Browns beating someone's butt
  • I miss rubbing the reality of our rich tradition into the face of FRAKS
  • I can still remember the looks on the faces of fellow Browns fans the very last game we played in Muni. jesus, Joseph and Mary, this has never just been about stupid butt football. Friends, family, the times of our lives..............intertwined with our Brownies. We deserve our Christmas table back.
  • I think some in these recent times of my dear friend, Kathy Hutchins, Mom, to those of us who began this board. I attended the season opener with her, Furnier, and Eric. I got drunk with her two nights before and lamented my sorrow for not joining her for the big gala at Muni before they tore it down. I just couldn't say goodbye to the place. 

I have pissed a lot of you guys off over the years, and feel no remorse for it, (fukck you if you can't take it), however, it is time for this team, fan base and media to talk, breathe, eat and schidt Browns football again. The reset we wanted? We got. This, to me, is year one.

Fukck all the feelings about " yeah, here we go again". That schidt is in the past. It has no bearing on this season. I hope the media and fans stay away from the sidebars and focus on energizing this team. If you don't believe that an energized fan base makes a difference to a team, to men, to competitors, then you don't understand the human condition.

We are going to have the best season in a long, long time. We will win opening day. Youth, youth and spirit. his team will win early and there will be an overflow of people cheering and jumping on board. You watch......THESE..............are the good old days.

Yeah, there's some of us that went to "the Final Play" at the old stadium before they tore it down. I know Kathy was there, some I don't remember anymore, Alzheimers must be setting in. and a few others that have fallen by the wayside over the years. Metal Marte, Bees Indy. 

I got D-ick Schafrath's autograph, and a chunk of the stadium turf that I managed to keep alive for many years. 

I'm more hopeful this season than I've been for several years- but hey we're the Browns anything that can go wrong- will.

I remember the last game I saw of the Browns. Of all places to watch it, I was with a Steelers fan. I remember loosing that game pretty badly and the Steelers guy falling backwards into the end zone with the last touchdown scored against us. I remember our guys doing laps around the outside of the field high fiving fans for the last time.

I remember the next Halloween wearing my beloved Browns jersey with permanent marker written on the back "Disgruntled Browns Fan" with "Shmuck MODELL" written all over it. I was bitter for many years.. Then I was married and had my first kid and then they came back... Only to watch that first game with the same Steeler's fan and watch us lose horribly yet again... That season was tough but I was hopeful..

Kelly Holcomb taking us to the Playoffs for the first time. I was there on the last game of the season against the Falcons at our new stadium. I screamed my voice out for a week and broke my thumb literally high fiving someone.. I was really hopeful even though we lost a heartbreaker to the Shmucking Steelers yet again....

I remember beating the Steelers for the first time as well. Was listening in on the radio while my wife was in the store.. I remember almost denting the roof of my car pounding on it as the last minute touchdown sealed the win....

My kids were there during the pre-season when Johnny Manziel threw his first touchdown.. I thought that this was it.. My kids would finally get to see what Browns Football was about... Then nothing.

I have been beat down so many times that last year I gave up. I was hopeful that our newest QB sensation would turn the tide, but not really. I didn't watch a single game last year. I would just turn in on Monday and check the scores and sigh yet again........

I can't admit this to anyone now because it has become a running joke... I am VERY VERY Hopeful for the first in a long time for this team.. 

I want to tell the next smug piece of Sheet that makes a Browns joke at my expense to go Shmuck themselves because this year we finally have our Sheet together... I think the players in our clubhouse this year are special and the only thing that is going to ruin this year is our coach.. I am not sold yet on Hue, but I absolutely agree with the decisions to keep him even as bad as his record has been...

We needed this building time.. And we have built wisely in my opinion.. 3 years of absolute butt hurt embarrassment to get us here, but HERE WE ARE...

This year IS going to be different.. Mark it!!!

Oldest is now 18. He was 2 or 3 when they saw the playoffs last, my youngest was likely 9 months old.... How can I ever get them to bond with this team. ??

It has been ages since we both were hopeful. I think it is a good Omen, Larry. I pray that my summer seems endless to me, but each year, when fall comes, football in the air is still very exciting.

Good question.  The oldest kid that has never seen them win a Championship is 54 years old.

And they wouldn't remember it either. I'd say 58 is the cutoff.  To date myself, I was 5 when Otto played his last game, and I don't remember it on the old black & white sets. BTW, unless you were rich, you couldn't afford one back then. One of the more interesting birthday gifts I've ever gotten was a copy of the NY Times on the day I was born. Nothing earth shattering happened, but it was a Sunday, and the interest was perusing items for sale. Back then, you could have bought a 4 bedroom house on Long Island for $12,500. Cars ran $1,000 or less. Those newfangled TVs were $500 bucks.  :)

Well that explains why all the kids in the neighborhood I lived in were invited over once a week to watch "I Love Lucy" on the only TV on the block. I knew we had around a $700-800 car, but I did not know the TVs were so expensive then.

I remember I bought my first Microwave oven in the exchange in Yokosuka, Japan in 1980.  It cost $600.00 dollars and weighed about 150 lbs.  Also bought my first VHS player with the old fashioned TV dials on it.  Cost about $800.00.

I hear ya DieHard!  I thought when telephones went from from turn dial to pressing buttons it was epic progress.  Today, kids think the BC after a calendar year stands for Before Cellphones.
