Red Right 88, probably.

Ack. *sigh* Well, at least the Browns were in contention back then. Is heartbroken better than beaten into submission?

Yep, I was referring to Red Right 88 in the playoff game against Oakland in 1981.

Are you saying Red Right 88 didn't end in an interception? Did the snow blind us all and the Browns really won that game? Hmmmm ...

I remember calling it "Kenny Kings" and I was always a West Sider.

Here's another one:

12) Treelawns

(I understand no one outside the Cleveland area ever uses that word for the grassy area between the sidewalk and the street curb.)

Here's a few:

1. Kid Leo
2. Lawsons (you can still see all of those distinctive, ugly buildings everywhere...but now they're Dairy Marts, etc...)
3. Jose Mesa
4. Barnaby
5. Beaucoup (anyone remember that 80s band?)
6. "Garfield1-2323" jingle
7. "Riverfest"..the city screwed up big time by cancelling that thing
8. "Miracle of Richfield"
9. The Colliseum
10. 10 cent beer night
11. Who killed Danny Greene?

p.s. Superhost Rocked...and the "certain ethnic" jokes on Big Chuck and Houlihan/Little John we're hilarious

I forgot about Barnaby! And who could forget the Coliseum, with the worst acoustics of any arena in the country! Three other things that I miss about Cleveland: Mr. Hero, Millbrook Bread, and Cherikee Red Pop (Cotton Club?).
