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 pictures here.


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 in this recent article.

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."
