Tracking Blog – The Cleveland Browns were officially sold by owner Randy Lerner to Jimmy Haslam for more than $1 billion, reports ESPN.com. Haslam has been a minority investor in the Steelers and said once that he was ”1,000 percent a Steelers fan.”
Imagine being so rich that you could literally spend $1 billion to continue humiliating your most hated enemy. And now imagine that metaphorically speaking that enemy is like Corky from Life Goes On:
Doesn’t seem fair does it? Well that’s where the Steelers – Browns rivalry just went. The Steelers dancing around with their history and their rings and the Browns sitting alone on their bed fiddling with their drool hands flashing psycho killer smiles right in your face. Clinging to hope with a rookie quarterback who’s almost older than Pres and now an owner that fucking hates them which, oh by the way, is nothing new. I think I’d rather swim with a toaster than be a Cleveland fan.
PS – Do you think Corky was the main inspiration growing up for the kid who plays Walter Jr? I just can’t imagine him pacing around his living room with his sticks trying to read the script from “A Few Good Men” or “The Hunt For Red October” or something and taking himself seriously. Had to be “Life Goes On” right?
