The Wright Stuff

Ex-Dawg and teammates remember the old days. Do you?

Ex-Browns standout Felix Wright still bleeds memories of orange-and-brown. Listen to the color commentary tonight, when he hooks up with former players Frank Minnifield, Hanford Dixon, and Al Gross for the Original Dawgs of the Cleveland Browns. For a couple of hours, the quartet will reminisce about the old times. "Nowadays, you know everything that is going on, on the sidelines. They have cameras and microphones everywhere. They didn't have that back in our day," says Wright. "But I still get people coming up to me, telling me about specific plays where I took some guy's head off. They know everything about us."Well, not everything. That's why, after the foursome spins yarns about their playing days, they'll take a half-hour's worth of questions from the audience before sticking around for photos and autographs. "They'll tell stories from on and off the field," says "Dawg Pound Mike" Randall, the show's creator. "They're stories that we as fans have never heard before, like how the Dawg Pound really got started." Woof! Woof! The show starts at 8 p.m. today and tomorrow at the Improv, 2000 Sycamore Street on the West Bank of the Flats. Tickets are $30 in advance and $40 at the door. Call 216-696-4677 or visit
