Today’s trip down memory lane takes place on Sunday September 19th 2010 in Cleveland Ohio. My wife is from Ohio and she is a Cleveland Browns fan. Yes I said she is a Cleveland Browns fan, I know right!
In 2007 our oldest son Michael decided he wanted to play youth football here where we live. My wife and I were a little nervous but extremely excited. During his time playing football we wound up becoming very good friends with another family, as a matter of fact a very wonderful family. This is where it gets interesting, they’re also Cleveland Browns fans. I know what your thinking because I thought the same thing myself. How is it possible that 350 miles east of Cleveland Ohio in the small town of Endwell, NY was there more than one Browns fan. I thought I’d have better odds in Vegas!
Over the course of a few years our friends “The Wagstaff’s” had been traveling at least once a season to Cleveland to watch a game. On the side lines of our sons game one afternoon we thought wouldn’t it be fun for us all to travel to Cleveland for a game. Finally on September 19th 2010 piled into two cars we caravanned to Cleveland for the Browns Vs. Chiefs game. Yes the Browns lost, only by two points and not that it was any shocker.
I thought that I would take this opportunity and post this for “Throwback Thursday” as the Cleveland Browns are 6-3 and sit atop of the AFC North. Yes sports fans I said the Cleveland Browns sit on top of the AFC North! I can just hear the Squealer, I mean Steeler fans cringe! Maybe you should throw in the towel now?
I am a New York Jets fan and I too have suffered year after year with defeat. Over the course of our 20 year history my wife’s beloved “Brownie’s” have slowly begin to grow on me. I find myself becoming a bigger fan season after season. I think I have this deep affection for the underdog. Its been exciting to watch Cleveland native “Brian Hoyer” under center. Johnny Football “Johnny Manziel” was all the rage during the draft, however “Hoyer” appears to be the man leading the Browns “HOPEFULLY” to their first playoff appearance since 2002.
LETS GO BROWNS!
