Default What's a Brown???

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?!

That was awsome! I'm going to print that out and give it to one of my buddies who is a huge Steelers fan. Well done!

Well, thanks for posting it anyway. I hate the Browns. I live 50 miles south of Cleveland... I have to deal with their fans every day!

It is funny, considering I don't like the Brownies either.

But, we all know they are called that because they are named after their former owner Paul Brown and his "Browns" or guys.

They should rename since they have the Pound.

They should call themselves "The Dawgs." That seems to be their mascot anyway.

Not a bad idea. Kind makes no sense to have the dog pound and not have a dog name.
