    So reports Jim Donovan on Cleveland's WKYC. May very well not live to see the sunrise.

    Will the Browns have a moment of silence Sunday?

    Release the, er, hounds?

    I attended the Browns home game after the Baltimore annoucement. Without a doubt, one of the most surreal and sad experiences I've ever had at a sporting event.

    I still have the placard from Mayor Michael White exhorting Clevelanders to remain calm and basically not tear the place apart.

    The first line is totally tasteless ... and that's why I love this board!

    I would think so, many of the Browns fans I know have already forgiven and forgot.

    Plain Dealer site does not allow comments on entry reporting Art Modell's grave illness: http://www.cleveland.com/browns/index.ssf/2012/09/former_cleveland_browns_owner.html

    Probably because there'd be a lot of this ...

    Oh my Lord! That's about 1,000 kinds of inappropriate.

    But it's all also an all-time "burn in hell for laughing at this" entry if I've ever seen one. It's especially funny if you've ever spent any time at all in NE Ohio.
