Wait a minute...is that a trick question???
It was really cute how the Browns dressed up as football players today to celebrate Halloween. (Well, all except for Hillis...whose agent and new wifey didn't want him to get hurt. Party poopers!) They almost had me fooled - until the game started.
Colt McCoy took the field and proved that he is suffering from PD - Projectile Dysfunction. There's no little blue pill in the world that can help him with that. We weren't even a minute into the game before the first turnover. (At least God & Mother Nature took mercy on us, sparing us from the snowstorm because they felt bad that we already have the Browns to deal with.) So glad I went outside, enjoyed the sunshine, and got my workout in before the game. It didn't take the Browns long to ruin the afternoon for me and the rest of the city. If it weren't for Phil Dawson, we would have been scoreless in the first half.
Charlie Brown would have more success while having Lucy hold the football for him. And we all know how THAT ends. Of course, I can now wear my favorite Peanuts shirt for the games:
Near the end of the 3rd quarter, things began to look up. But it didn't last long. The drive that looked like it could produce a touchdown instead produced an interception in the end zone. The following drive, which also could have been a possible treat, turned into a trick and the Browns failed to get any points out of it. Even with a touchdown in the 4th, penalties and sacks completed our misery. Most of the time our team didn't even look like they cared.
I just may go Cheesehead with Bitter AK this year. I also always root for the Browns, but I need someone to cheer that won't always cause major depression. I'll bet that every Monday our local doctors' offices are filled with people who want a prescription for anti-anxiety meds. Not for everyday use, mind you...just for game days. I'm sure we could all go trick-or-treating to Conrad Murray's house, since he hands out medication like candy anyway.
Oh, and as for the infamous Cheesebra? Once I get to my goal weight, I may just don one. Maybe People magazine would like to put that on their cover. Kirstie Alley & Valerie Bertinelli...eat your hearts out!
Marie Cauley, AKA BitterChickMC, has decided that she will do an extra workout tonight after all. Does anyone have a punching bag handy? Let's dress it up as a Cleveland Brown for Halloween. Guaranteed motivation!
