After watching the Cleveland Browns lose another heart-breaker this Sunday…
I started to think back 25+ years ago to when the entire city used to rally behind our NFL team.
I wish things were like they were back in the late 80's.
Here’s fifteen reasons why:
15 — We had faith in our quarterback
14 — Our fullback was named after a truck
13 — Our receivers flew high & wide
12 — And never seemed to drop a pass
11 — We had the best damn tight-end who ever played
10 — A kicker with a one Bahr helmet
9 — A slippery ice cube return on a cold lakefront Sunday
8 — On defense we didn’t need an MVP. We had MDP.
7 — Saved by the Bell by Bob Golic so many times
6 — We crushed them into white powder like Johnson & Johnson
5 — Clay Matthews, before there was Clay Matthews
4 — We barked like dogs at the (Warren) moon
3 — There’s no cute one-liner for this moment from Ernest Byner
2 — It was his party, so we all hailed Marty
1 — Like it or not, it started at the top. This team was simply “a work of Art”
