As the 1-8 Browns take on the 1-8 Detroit Lions on Sunday in a game that will assure plenty of leaves get raked around the Midwest, two Michigan men have unleashed new, more appropriate versions of the "Terrible Towels" for the two beleaguered franchises.
The towels are $10 and can be bought on their site. And while I applaud the entrepreneurial streak, I imagine that these white towels would be indistinguishable from regular white towels, like the ones given away to fans in Cleveland for the Monday night affair. Still, it's time truly terrible teams take back the word 'terrible.'
Birmingham residents Gordon Miller and John Crick are selling white towels (naturally), with "The Official We ARE Terrible Towel: A Detroit Original Since 1957" emblazoned in Honolulu blue. They're $10 each — or less for bigger orders — and can be purchased online at weareterribletowel.com or by calling 877-442-7935.
"It's hard to eat a hot dog or drink a soda with a bag over your head," Miller said in a news release. "With the official We ARE Terrible Towel, you can eat, drink, boo and still wave your towel."
There's also a Browns version for sale. And the entrepreneurs plan to expand to include other wretched franchises soon.
