Default Cleveland Browns (Oldie but Goodie)

A Bengal is a tiger

And a fast plane is a Jet.

A Cowboy comes from Texas

And a Raider's tough I'll bet.



A Viking's from the frigid north.

Seahawks live near the sea.

All are names of football teams,

Just like they ought to be.



But there's one name that makes no sense

It causes me to frown

Can anyone enlighten me?

Just what's a Cleveland Brown?!



I don't know if it is true,

But I think I've heard a theory;

That Cleveland named its team

After the color of Lake Erie.



Brown does not describe

A big and strong athletic man.

It's what's inside the diaper

Of a baby Steeler's fan.



The guy who named this football team

Must be the Cleveland clown

Who else would think to call

A football warrior a Brown!!



If I'd been born in Cleveland

And there my life was spent,

I'd find another team to cheer

From pure embarrassment.



I myself, have always loved

The Steelers Black and Gold.

I did when I was very young,

And I will when I am old.



But why's this name an adjective

When it should be a noun?

Can anybody tell me

What the hell's a Cleveland Brown?!

I think they were named after their owner at that time Paul Brown but I am not sure of that (one of those things we are all suppose to know)? LOL :)

Any brownies coming forth to explain, please:)
