@JDD welcome!  

Post a bunch and be clever.  

When in doubt, gifs of jiggly women are always the right answer.

 

 

 

Awesome thanks. 

Yeah like most message boards the gifs work best

Hey Browns fans.  First off - long time listener, first time caller.

Instead of the default questionnaire, I thought I'd share how I, as a Northern Californian, became afflicted with this incurable passion.  The day was January 11th, 1987.  A day that I'm sure many of you remember all too well.  I was a wee lad of 9 years and spent the afternoon with my younger brothers in the mountains having a lengthy and spirited snow ball fight.  When the day began, I couldn't care less about football.  After hours of fun outside, my father emerged from the house.  He was a lifelong Browns and Indians fan.  For him it started in 1956, at the age of 5.  He had the "fortune" of having his first T-Ball team being named the Indians.  What a twist of fate.  When I spotted my father, I noticed he had tears in his eyes.  I later found out that it was Elway's doing.  Curse him and his teeth.  It was the first and only time that I would ever see him cry.  Something divine happened in that moment.  My father's love for the Browns became my own.  It's like it was written into my DNA, ingrained in my bones.  Here we are some 30+ years later and I'm a Browns fan through and through, the good times and the bad.  If my second son was born on time, his name would have been Quinn.  Lucky for him me he was late.  I have a room in my house painted the same as the Brown's helmet.  My buddies and I have an annual trip we take to see a game.  We came out to Cleveland in 2017 for week 1 vs Pittsburgh.  Thanks Kizer, for the lasting memories.  At least I got to see the Indians win #17 in a row that weekend.  These days, I'm the only Browns fan I know.  I tried to recruit my oldest son when he was 3 years old.  It was the year after our 10-6 season and the Browns were facing the Cowboys in week 1.  I explain to him why I'm a Browns fan.  We have a moment.  Again, he is 3.  He asks who the "blue team" is.  I tell him it's the Cowboys.  He says "Go Cowboys."  He's 3 and he is rooting for the opposition out of spite.  Millennials. 

Enough about me.  I've frequented this site from time to time because you guys seem to have your fingers on the pulse.  Browns info is slower to materialize out here.  I'm a big sports talk radio guy and being just outside the Bay Area, everyone wants to talk about the 49ers and Raiders.  Thanks for all the info.  I'll keep tuning in and try to contribute going forward.

Welcome to the Pound, WD.

FWIW - you are not alone. 33 years later, I STILL cannot watch what HorseMouth did to us in consecutive years. Grrrrrrrr.......

I also have a similar family story to yours. My wife's family roots are the strip mining communities east of Pittsburgh. Wonderful, simplicity of life kind of people. About 1994 or so, our youngest daughter was 7 or 8. We were visiting my wife's Grammie in PA. My youngest was on Grammie's lap, and they were watching a Steeler game. I came in the room and remarked "Steelers - YUCK!" To which my daughter said "Go Steelers!"

She knew what reaction she would get out of me, and she was right. But the die was cast that day - and she is still on the dark side 30 years later. At least I can respect that. She made a choice that day and stuck with that choice all these years.  What I despise with a passion even more than the Steelers are fans that turn their back on their home team just because they are going through a rough patch and align with the Stoolers just because they are not. Only thing worse is becoming a Michigan Man.
