Since Art Modell robbed Cleveland of their team Steeler fans and Browns
fans have been able to unite in support of the renewal of the NFL's greatest
rivalry. On September 12, 1999 it will return in a nationaly televised
game on ESPN. The friendship was nice but face it, it's more fun being
rivals. So let the insults and Steeler victories begin again!
Check out a couple interesting, exclusive Browns
Has anyone else noticed how optimistic Browns
fans have been about their new teams chances? Be realistic, they are an
expansion team. "Pittsburgh Pete" from RealPittsburgh.com catures it perfectly

THE SMART BROWNS FAN
One day Jimmmy came home very excited. "Mommy, Mommy,
guess what!Today in English I got all the way to the end of the alphabet,
and everyoneelse got messed up at around 'P'!" His mother said, Very good,
dear. That's because our family is a Brown's family." The next day, Jimmy
was even more excited. "Mommy, Mommy, guess what! Today in math I counted
all the way to ten, but everyone else messed up around seven!" "Very good
dear," his mother replied. "That's because we're a Browns family." On the
third day, Johnny was beside himself. "Mommy, Mommy, today we measured
ourselves and I'm the tallest one in my class! Is that because we are a
Browns family?" "No dear," she said, "it's because you're 26 years old."
ALBERT EINSTEIN AND THE CLOWNS
Albert Einstein arrives at a party and introduces
himself to the first person he sees and asks, "What is your IQ?" to which
the man answers, "241."
"That is wonderful!." says Albert. "We will talk
about the Grand Unification Theory and the Mysteries of the Universe. We
will have much to discuss."
Next Albert introduces himself to a woman and
asks, "What is your IQ?" to which the lady answers, "144." "That's great!,"
responds Albert. "We can discuss politics and current affairs. We will
have much to discuss!"
Albert goes to another person and asks, "What
is your IQ?" to which theman answers, "51."
Albert responds, "How 'bout those Browns?"
STEELERS AND BROWNS MEET
There's a guy from Pittsburgh driving up the turnpike
from Pittsburgh to Cleveland, and a guy from Cleveland driving from Cleveland
to Pittsburgh. In the middle of the night, with no other cars on the road,
they hit each other head on and both cars go flying off in different directions.
The Steelers fan manages to climb out of his car and survey the damage.
He looks at his twisted car and says, "Man, I am really lucky to be alive!"
Likewise the Brownie fan scrambles out of his car and looks at his wreckage.
He too says to himself, "I can't believe I survived this wreck!" The Clown
fan walks over to the Steeler fan and says, "Hey man, I think this is a
sign from God that we should put away our petty differences and live as
friends instead of arch rivals." The Wildcat thinks for a moment and says,
"You know, you're absolutely right! We should be friends. Now I'm gonna
see what else survived this wreck." So the Steeler fan pops open his trunk
and finds a full unopened case of Iron City. He says to the Browns fan,
"I think this is another sign from God that we should toast to our new
found understanding and friendship." The Browns fan says, "You're right!"
and he grabs the case and starts sucking down can after can of Iron City
(ED Note: Clevelanders don't often get to taste this fine beverage). After
putting away nearly half the beers the Browns fan hands a can back to the
Steeler fan and says, "Your turn! The Steeler fan hands the can back and
says, "Nahh, I think I'll wait for the cops to show up."
