PAX (11): Caroline, Cookie, Deep dish, False Start, mike c (Brutus ), Milli Vanilli, NRA, Sparkie, Townie, uga, Walkie Talkie
My name is milli vanilli and I will be your Q today. Today is my 4 year anniversary Q though I believe tomorrow is officially the day, but like horseshoes and hand grenades....close enough.
A few disclaimers that I managed to cut short so thanks for not suing anybody today. The statute of limitations at the Windjammer is a very short window and have since expired.
Mosey to the Flag for some SSH, Weedpickers, Toy Soliders, and Imperial Walkers
Today we're going to take a stroll down memory lane of some of my not so fond memories of Browns Being Browns. Plenty of options to choose from, but we'll keep the list to a reasonable minimum to accommodate four quarters and even some OT...so let's begin.
Did you know the Cleveland Browns have been around since 1950. In that time, they have made the playoffs 25 times and won the "championship" 4 times (1950, 1954, 1955, 1964).
Thank goodness for Jim Brown.
First Quarter....The Hill.
We're going to run the hill four times for each championship. At the top, 75 mountain climbers (A) and at the bottom 4 burpees. Mary for the 6 and blame False Start for all the silly gloom boom noises. Wasn't me.
Second Quarter...the Dam
Not on this day in 2009, the Browns blew a 24 - 3 First Quarter lead and lost on the last play of the game courtesy of the Georgia Boy, Matt Stafford.
The clock was moving fast this morning so we cut it short to one round (instead of three).
Once complete, run backwards like the Browns trajectory and bernie sanders your way to the bench and jog it back.
The Browns went Defeated in 2017 and finished the season 0-16. Wow.
So instead of 11's, we're just going to do a quick out and back. 16 merkins down to 10.
Fourth Quarter...The Drive.
Ugh....I remember this one as a little kid. The first of many gut punches over the years...this one courtesy of Mr. big teeth himself, John Elway. He led a game tying drive in the final 5:02 going 98 yards that sent the game to OT where I'm still convinced the kick was wide right.
Time is running short...so cutting the 5 sprints down to 3. Run fast my friends...run fast.
OVERTIME....I remember watching this one on a Sunday night in Cleveland back in 2001. Several of my pals back home made the trip to Chicago to watch this gut punch in person.
48 seconds to go.....Browns up by 14. Not so fast my friend! Bears rally to tie the game in regulation sending this gem into OT and mere minutes in our pass was deflected and intercepted...Mike Brown ran it into the endzone and ran my friends straight out of town to think about what the next 20+ would look like for the Browns on their six hour drive home.
21 Forward Lunges
27 Reverse Lunges
And that's time, folks....I hope you enjoyed your brief history lesson of the Browns Being Browns.
NLB Breakfast on 10/21 has been commandeered by HAHA and the Norsemen....those pesky vikings are always creeping on a come up and plundering the Country Club. We may need to create and alliance with the evil Forsythians and exact our revenge when they least expect it.
Notwithstanding, thank you to all of you at the Windjammer and beyond. These four years being a part of F3 mean the world to me....you have all made me a better person for it and I thank you all for this.
Prayers for all and thank you, gentlemen for coming out to support one another.
Browns Being Browns aside....old habits die hard and I'll always support my team(s) in CLEVELAND. We're a loyal bunch through good times and bad.
Thank you all for coming out today!
