Why I love Cleveland

Yeah great, Browns are 3-3, good offense, bad defense. With the Indians providing all the excitement I'm capable of taking in, I'm going to break my self-imposed rule that all my posts be about the Browns.

Lets face it, Cleveland is not usually the destination of choice for the rich and the famous. When Cleveland is hosting a nationally televised series against the Yankees or the Red Sox, they could probably get any number of celebrities to come into town to toss an opening pitch. But for game one against the Yankees, the playoffs were opened by none other than tribe drummer and regular guy John Adams.

Its not just that the tribe would give the nod to Adams to toss the pitch. Its everything about Adams. Yeah, he gets a little press about his drum, but he could barely even qualify as a local celebrity. He just pays for his tickets, shows up at games, and bangs his drum.

You love Cleveland because of John Adams? Not because of its tough, working-class roots? Not because of a "rush hour" that is minor compared to most other cities? Not because of the cheapness of the beer in the 'Wood?

3-3 at the bye week with an offense to boot! All of us who've suffered through these years of putting up 10-17 points (if) are more then happy with the offensive output. Not to be a prognosticator, but we could be 5-3 in 3 weeks time.
