Re: “A Little History of Brownie the Elf

I grew up seeing the Brownie in the 1960's, and so he will ALWAYS be Cleveland's one and only symbol. While the organization moved away from him in the 70's, and some fans adopted junk like a dog ("dawg"), I've always remembered the Brownie fondly. He is simply the greatest mascot in the history of sports, any era, any teams, any sport (football, baseball, basketball, hockey, soccer, etc). As for WHICH Brownie, I've always liked the "standard" one with the hands on the hips (and the Championship variation wearing the crown), but also the earlier "half-back" tough-looking Brownie stiff-arming as he runs. Either one should be on the helmet (or AT LEAST on the sleeve, a la the Viking man, as an earlier poster said. Say, does anyone remember the "concept" helmet that the Browns almost adopted in 1965? Same colors, but with a "CB".? It even appeared in some artwork of the time, but never ended up being used. At that time, instead of the "CB", they should have adopted the standing Brownie on the helmet. But what can you expect from that stinkin' pole-cat and TRAITOR, Art Modell?
