Cleveburgh too far

Just too much to allegory in the news that a co-owner of the Steelers is buying the Cleveland Browns.

It turns out that the real origin of 'Cleveburgh' is not only from Cleveland, but comes has its origins in the Browns/Steelers rivalry at the time (that would be in pre-slide years for those too young to remember).

Or some team called the Browns that is.   My Ohio friends get a bit mad at me when I point out that the Browns actually left town some years ago.  The real Browns had some serious serious fans.  The Dawg Pound today can't quite fill the seats they have.  Except for a few games each year.

Interesting that you would post this on the day the Browns announce their new owner is also a partial owner of the Steelers. Can Cleveburgh be that far off?

I think he has to sell the Steeler's stake.

I am sure that he will have to divest of his Steeler holdings. But I have another dilemma....he is the owner of the Pilot truck stops...they are putting in nat gas stations across the country for 18 wheelers. How can I root against him???

I just say a nat gas truck (run by the county). They really should start with fleets.

Anyway, next time I catch a philosophy grad student, I'm going to try to convince them to use the Browns/Ravens thing instead of Theseus' ship.

I've never heard the word "Cleveburgh" ever, and as a member of the Steeler Nation I am offended that Cleveland would even remotely associated the name of their city w/ that of PIttsburgh
