Long Live the Browns

I know the Cubs haven't won a World Series for a long time, but at least Chicago has had several Championship teams over the last 44 years, including the Bears and the Bulls. The last championship in any sport for Clevelanders was the 1964 Browns, and then owner Art Modell had the game blacked out locally in order to make a few more bucks.

So when the Browns beat the Giants on Monday night football it was sort of like winning a championship since the Giants are the current champions.

But if there was a team that ever lifted or sunk its home, it's the Browns. My own theory is that if Modell (again the culprit) had kept his team in the old NFL instead of moving it into the AFC with the merger, they would have have had a better shot of at least getting to the Super Bowl, which they never have done. They weren't close until the late 80's. Though Modell made out quite well his team did not.
