Re: “A Little History of Brownie the Elf

I'm from Cleveland and this is the most embarrassing representative for a football team. Football is a masculine sport and teams are supposed to exude strength and power. How is a cute lil elf supposed to represent a football team? I can't believe these idiots in marketing. There is no CUTE in football and the Browns by their lousy play and embarrassing elf and uniforms is why they will never change their image as the joke of the NFL.

Re: “We Were the Champions of the World, It Says So Right There

The NY Giants also wore World Champion jerseys during the 1906 season after taking the 1905 World Series from Connie Mack's Athletics, 4 games to 1.

In 1927, the Cardinals did the same, having beaten the Yankees in the 1926 Series.

Re: “Hold Onto Your Wallets, Chema's Back

As I read this article in two days after the World Series loss to the Chicago Cubs I realize how totally out of touch Mr Grzegorek was back then. Gateway was the downtown project that saved downtown Cleveland . In 2016 we hosted R N C -- the N B A finals and one of the greatest World Series of all time. All of this took place at Gateway ! ! ! Gateway has contributed millions of dollars and new jobs to our economy. It has revived all of downtown. Attracted the Casino . Also attracted thousands of people to live downtown as well. If Mr. Grzegorerk had his way none of this would have happened . Hope he writes an apology for his narrow-mindedness . I am sure he won't !

Re: “Rick Manning and Matt Underwood 4th Worst Announcing Pair According to GQ

Time for a change! I can't even listen to them. Radio guys do a much better job calling the game and giving you tidbits of information about the past present farm clubs etc... Time for a change!!

Re: “Rick Manning and Matt Underwood 4th Worst Announcing Pair According to GQ

I think GQ is boring! What the hell do they know? I have the full package, and I've watched all the big town duos. Matt and Arch are the best of the lot! GQ subscribers can barely read. They only buy it for the soft porn ads! What do they expect? Ashley Greene in a thong sitting on Arch's lap? Screw GQ!

Re: “Remembering... the Cleveland Pipers

Great history lesson Gerry. I really upsets me that people are so quick to forget and so ignorant to the history of this game that they supposedly love...
Also great point Matt!

Re: “Rick Manning and Matt Underwood 4th Worst Announcing Pair According to GQ

I think they should learn how to speak the English language properly. I.E. the player ketches the ball? how about he CAT..ches the call Mr. Underwood Moreover, it becomes tiring and monotonous to hear them
tell us the ball was hit off the end of the bat! What diff does it make where the ball hits the bat? Off the handle, off the end? off the trademark? What ever happened to the old...foul ball. lazy fly ball, blooper to the out field??????Perhaps there is a new stat that I am not aware of? Underwood is the more guilty party on this issue ?plus, I have read the baseball rule book and can't find the term PUNCHOUT????Is this some culture jargon?(just being facetious). Please some one get this complaint to Rick and maybe he can make my day!!!!!!

Re: “Rick Manning and Matt Underwood 4th Worst Announcing Pair According to GQ

It's TV, wants there to say. If your attention span is that short maybe you should click over to the cartoon network. It might help if the cheapskate owner would get some exciting major league talent. Tito's done well with ''high'' triple A talent.

Re: “Campus Sportswear Company's Striking (But Now Lost) Mural

I bought a sweater from Embroidery Motifs once. While it looked decent, the chemically-treated materials it was made from gave me a skin rash, and it came apart when machine-washing it (which is just as well after my skin rash developed, I didn't want to wear it anymore). I think you get what you pay for. Avoid Embroidery Motifs.

Re: “All Time Indians Name Team — Rivington Bisland Division (Real Names)

Rivington Bisland is my grandfather. He was a great fielder. Did not hit we'll in the majors however lifetime average batting in the minors was .327. He was an outstanding gentleman and awesome grandfather.

Re: “Scientific Study: Looking at Chief Wahoo Will Make You Hate Asians

The Irish Catholics were not discriminated against and murdered in the streets when they immigrated from Ireland? I guess the history books are again filled with wrong lessons. I would not want my team named the Cleveland "Naps"...that's truely insulting.

"Mindless Racism"..what does that mean?

Make note; it WILL be your generation that will be responsible for the progressive change that is occuring in this country. When you hold your grand children on your knee and tell them that you are responsible for the situation in which they exist. But perhaps by that time our culture will have dispensed with the Constitution, individual liberty and your precious one world government. You are unwittingly turning back the clock and forcing change you may not want.

Re: “Remembering... the Cleveland Pipers

Never says in the post that the Pipers were the first pro basketball team in the city, Gerry, but everything else you wrote is accurate and, sadly, forgotten by most Clevelanders.

Re: “Trying to Cut Bread With a Saw: Bernie Kosar's Life Now

That I will confer. Bernie is a mean and belligerent man when drunk in a bar. Seen him twice in South Florida bars where he was way far gone... Very sad. Offered to take him home and wanted to take me on for that.
