Three Things To Do On Sunday Other Than Watch The Browns

The Cleveland Browns bye week is this Sunday and it allows and abundance of productivity to take place in the 0-12 team’s absence.

Here are three things to do while the Browns are idle Sunday afternoon:

1. Enjoy another game at the 1 pm slot?

Look, when the Browns are on– I have to watch. It’s ugly. It’s brutal. But I am a Browns Backer. But this week? I can pick whichever game I like, or the Redzone Channel for fantasy football purposes. In particular, I’ll keep my eyes on two games. The Chiefs play in Atlanta and the ‘Phins play the Ravens at 1 pm. I’m ready for a stress free Sunday.

     2. Get some work done?

I mean, I’m a college student. No Cleveland Browns game on? I have work off, as well? Sounds like primetime for getting some work done. Procrastination will surely take place as the 1 pm games begin, but it is what it is. More work will be done without the Browns being active.

3. Sleep

I don’t know. I usually fall asleep in the third or fourth quarter of each Browns game. The Chicago Bears and San Francisco Giants play at 1 pm? That’s the best alternative to a Browns’ Sunday I’ve ever heard. Matt Barkley v. Colin Kaepernick… the matchup of the weekend, as well as a great nap.

Top 5 Super Bowls of the past 10 years

Super Bowl Sunday is fast approaching, but in the mean time I thought it would be fun to look back and reflect on the past. Not every Super Bowl has an iconic play, such as Malcom Butler’s interception at the goal line against the Seahawks last year. Some are just blowouts, a prime example would be the ‘Hawks drubbing of Denver in Super Bowl XLVIII (43-8). My top five Super Bowls focus both on late game heroics, and the significance/circumstances surrounding the result. Here they are in ascending order: Continue reading “Top 5 Super Bowls of the past 10 years”

Resiliency and the Browns Fan

I have three friends visiting from Indiana this weekend to attend the Browns-Bengals matchup Sunday. Two of them happen to be Bengals fans, and I am beginning to question my decision to invite them as I preview the upcoming game. They are sitting pretty at 9-2, while we sit at 2-9. Sh*t talking will undoubtedly take place, coldly directed at my Cleveland friend and I. Continue reading “Resiliency and the Browns Fan”

A continued numbness to mass violence

As I sat down at my laptop tonight I was planning on penning a reactionary piece to my experience at Monday Night Football in Cleveland. My beloved Browns lost in heartbreaking fashion, but an alert flashed across my phone today that halted my anger at Austin Davis being named the team’s starter.

Jerry Jones, Cowboys proving karma real

When Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones signed defensive end Greg Hardy, I silently wondered if a phenomena called “karma” would come into play. Hardy’s suspension was reduced to four games; significantly less than the initial punishment of ten, and Jerry was all smiles. Continue reading “Jerry Jones, Cowboys proving karma real”
