Waiting For Next Year:
Scott E. Entsminger of Mansfield died on the 4th of July at the age of 55 and I’m guessing had pretty explicit instructions for his obituary. I first saw it via Adam Schefter’s Twitter, but I’m sure it’s been around the block of ever-fast-moving Internet. Regardless, I think we might all agree that it takes a special guy to add levity to his own death after passing. Here’s the part of the obituary that will make you smile.
He was an accomplished musician, loved playing the guitar and was a member of the Old Fogies Band. A lifelong Cleveland Browns fan and season ticket holder, he also wrote a song each year and sent it to the Cleveland Browns as well as offering other advice on how to run the team. He respectfully requests six Cleveland Browns pall bearers so the Browns can let him down one last time. Scott was a fun loving, kind and caring man who enjoyed gardening and fishing but his greatest enjoyment was spending time with his family.
I’m positive that’s not an original joke, but what good form on using it anyway.
Rest in peace dear Browns fan. Rest in peace.

Training camp doesn’t start for almost another three weeks, so it’s the perfect time to make largely uninformed predictions about what this season will hold for the Browns. But let’s not be blindly optimistic with these forecasts. Instead, I’ll offer both a best and worst case scenario in a variety of different areas relating to the Browns season.

We just found out that Broncos front office executive Matt Russell of the Broncos was charged with DUI.
Now Broncos pro personnel director Tom Heckert has been busted for DUI on June 11th, according to ProFootballTalk.com.
Either the Broncos have bad luck, they hired the wrong guys, or they overlooked some serious off the field issues with both Russell and Heckert.
I can’t wait...

Like all NFL teams, the Cleveland Browns remain committed to improving the gameday experience for their fans. No, that doesn’t mean adding cheerleaders, or installing a giant video board. And it certainly doesn’t mean improving the team. Nope, instead Browns games will have wiener dog races.
