    i had to clean this up a little to make it more appropriate for the boc....

    enjoy....

    Just What the heck is a Cleveland Brown?

    A Bengal is a tiger
    And a fast plane is a Jet.
    A Cowboy comes from Texas
    And a Raider's tough I'll bet.

    A Viking's from the frigid north.
    Seahawks live near the sea.
    All are names of football teams,
    Just like they ought to be.

    But there's one name that makes no sense
    It causes me to frown
    Can anyone enlighten me?
    what the heck is a Cleveland Brown?!

    I don't know if it is true,
    But I think I've heard a theory;
    That Cleveland named its team
    After the color of Lake Erie.

    Brown does not describe
    A big and strong athletic man.
    It's what's inside the diaper
    Of a baby Steelers fan.

    The guy who named this football team
    Must be the Cleveland clown
    Who else would think to call
    a football warrior a stinking Brown!!

    If I'd been born in Cleveland
    And there my life was spent,I'd find another team to cheer
    From pure embarrassment.

    I myself, have always loved
    The Steelers Black and Gold.
    I did when I was very young,
    And I will when I am old.

    But whys this name an adjective
    When it should be a noun?
    Can anybody tell me
    What the heck is a Cleveland Brown?!

    The Cleveland Browns were founded in 1945 as a charter member of the All-America Football Conference, under businessman Arthur B "Mickey" McBride. Not long after gaining the franchise, McBride named Ohio State Buckeyes coach Paul Brown as vice president, general manager and head coach.

    A fan contest was conducted to determine the name of the team, with the most popular choice being "Panthers." However, Brown objected to the name after finding out it had been used by a semipro team in the city--one that had a reputation as a chronic loser. This prompted a second contest to choose a name befitting a champion. The Browns say this contest yielded the nickname "Brown Bombers"--after reigning heavyweight champion Joe Louis --and was shortened to "Browns" for the convenience of headline writers. However, to this day, rumors persist that the team was named after Paul Brown himself.
