1. Other than Dick Jacobs, who is/was the best Cleveland sport's owner in your lifetime?

Jesus. Thinking about the answer to this is really sobering. Pass.

2. What has been your favorite local sport's venue?

Old Municipal Stadium (for Browns games) and Jacobs/Progressive field were/are incredible venues to watch a sporting event in. Especially in the playoffs or for big games.

3. What's the most coin who've ever spent on suds/concessions at a sporting event?

Good one. Want to say the Indians/Yankees game four of the 2007 ALDS, the Joba bug game. Remember leaving work at like 2-3, running up a several hundred dollar bar tab before the game, and then dropping at least another hundy on beers at the game for a big group of TCF'ers that all went. All of us standing on top the left field wall.

4. Who's been the best Browns, Cavs & Indians broadcaster in your lifetime (one for each)?

Nev, Tait, Hammie

5. What's your bucket list sporting event you'd love to see live in your lifetime?

Never been to a Kentucky Derby or a Final Four. Sunday at Augusta would be awesome as well.

Obviously, seeing a Cleveland team win a title live would usurp all of that.

1. Other than Dick Jacobs, who is/was the best Cleveland sport's owner in your lifetime?
Tough one. For a period of time it'd have to be Gordon Gund. He hired a quality GM in Embry and stepped back and let him do his work.


2. What has been your favorite local sport's venue?
Cleveland Municipal Stadium for Browns games both regular season and playoffs and Opening Day for baseball. The place was old, cold, rusted, falling apart but that was it's character and what made it such a fun place. Nothing to distract you from the game ala jumbotrons and all the other bells and whistles you have now.

3. What's the most coin who've ever spent on suds/concessions at a sporting event?
There were many Browns games where I was buying beers for our group of 11 season ticket holders. Was drunk enough not to know how much or really care.

4. Who's been the best Browns, Cavs & Indians broadcaster in your lifetime (one for each)?
Browns: Nev hands down with Gib Shanley second
Indians: Hamilton
Cavs: Can it be anyone else other than Joe Tait?

5. What's your bucket list sporting event you'd love to see live in your lifetime?
For myself it would probably be The Masters followed by the College World Series
For me and my son it'll be heading out to the Little League World Series. Just something the two of us can share together that I was unable to have w/ my absentee father
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

1. Other than Dick Jacobs, who is/was the best Cleveland sport's owner in your lifetime?
Considering my choices are limited, Dan Gilbert...but as the owner of the Lake Erie Monsters

2. What has been your favorite local sport's venue?

The Jake. No doubt.

3. What's the most coin who've ever spent on suds/concessions at a sporting event?

I'm not sure I have ever validated spending $8 on a beer. I'll drink $5 pitchers at the Clevelander before and after instead. I've bought probably $100 worth of various $1 beers at Aeros games when I went to Akron or at Monsters games.

4. Who's been the best Browns, Cavs & Indians broadcaster in your lifetime (one for each)?

Hammy. He owns this category and no others need be named. I do really enjoy Paul Keels and Jim Lachey though.

5. What's your bucket list sporting event you'd love to see live in your lifetime?

Indians World Series Winning Game. I'd love to feel the atmosphere of a Stanley Cup final game. An Olympic gold medal hockey game would be cool too, especially in a different country with their team in the final.

1. Other than Dick Jacobs, who is/was the best Cleveland sport's owner in your lifetime?

No such thing.

2. What has been your favorite local sport's venue?

Flip of a coin between Muni and the Jake, have seen way too many incredible games at both.

3. What's the most coin who've ever spent on suds/concessions at a sporting event?

Probably the day game (of a day nighter) at the Jake in 96 (Nagy pitched a gem IIRC), 3rd base side 3rd row aisle seat had 8-9 beers before they shut it down, so 9*whatever beers were then ($5, seems like a steal now). After the game went to the Basement from like 4-10 and spent another $75, I consider that all part of the "event".

4. Who's been the best Browns, Cavs & Indians broadcaster in your lifetime (one for each)?

Nev, Tait, Hamilton

5. What's your bucket list sporting event you'd love to see live in your lifetime?

Tough call, IMO it has to be one in which you have a vested interest, so while Sunday at Augusta would be a great thing to do not to sure I'd be that vested in the excitement and drama of the outcome, I mean I don't see myself making the cut anytime soon you know what I'm sayin. Probably a game 7 WS or AFCCG w/Cleveland in it.

1. Gordon Gund for dolding the Rockers. Women's hoops is pure brutaility on a beautiful sport.

2. Dix Stadium

3. Does this include the subsequent legal fees and fines resulting from the beverage purchases?


4. Nev, Paul Porter, Herbie's dulcet tones

5.Cleveland Browns beating Pittsburgh in the AFC Title game 52 0

1. Other than Dick Jacobs, who is/was the best Cleveland sport's owner in your lifetime?

I agree with some of the others who named Gordon Gund

2. What has been your favorite local sport's venue?

Old Cleveland Stadium would be an easy choice, but the Richfield Coliseum was an awesome place to go watch the Miracle of Richfield games

3. What's the most coin who've ever spent on suds/concessions at a sporting event?

I really dont remember, and in reality probably dont want to remember

4. Who's been the best Browns, Cavs & Indians broadcaster in your lifetime (one for each)?

Browns= Gib Shanley
Cavs= Joe Tait
Indians= Herb Score

5. What's your bucket list sporting event you'd love to see live in your lifetime?

I have been very lucky to attend bcs championship game, final four, world series, nba finals, Indy 500, Daytona 500 and the Masters. All which have included teams I support. The only remaining game is the Super Bowl and I am waiting for the Browns, and my kids tell me that I should bite the bullett and go because I may die waiting and never get the chance to go.

He's the only one
2. What has been your favorite local sport's venue?
The Jake. War Memorial Stadium down here- holds the district baseball tournament every spring, and college wood bat league baseball in the summer. Cheap seats and beers.
3. What's the most coin who've ever spent on suds/concessions at a sporting event?
Last time I saw the Tribe play. Nothing but GL beer before and during the game. Counting dinner, I was in over 2 hundy.
4. Who's been the best Browns, Cavs & Indians broadcaster in your lifetime (one for each)?
Donovan & Hammy.
5. What's your bucket list sporting event you'd love to see live in your lifetime?
Browns SB victory. I plan on living a while.

I don't care about your answers Dave- I'm just glad you remembered your username and password ;-) ;) :wink:

Hope all is well.

Thanks Brian, hope the wife and girls are all doing well. Since our moms decided to travel back in time and break bread together, I decided to try and give this board a bit more time. I have not seen Uncle Dan in a long time, what is doing these days?

1) I do not give a SHIT about who owns what. Their all commie scum to me.

2) The Shoe. There are no other venues that even come close.

3) Probably a few hundred bucks. I took my brother and a couple of his crazy ass Lima Co. Marines to a Bluejackets game. $7 beers do add up.

4) Tait, Score, not sure for the Brownies.

5) Any Cleveland team winning it all. I'd settle for the 9th Street Panthers winning the over 60 Bowling League at this point.
