What is this madness all about? Anyone who has experienced it knows: being a Cleveland Browns fan is just different.

Why are we the only fans in the nation who ever demanded their team back--and got it? Why did three seasons without football fail even to dampen the enthusiasm? Why have we endured years of heartache (The Fumble, The Drive, "Red Right 88" . . .) yet grown eve

This book is a very good book. It talks about wait it means to be a true browns fan. It's talks about the rough road we had with sports and the city of Cleveland. The author is a kid who grew up in Cleveland and he bleeds orange and brown, i don't think you could of had a better author for it. If you a true Cleveland Browns fan you will love this book. Even if you don't like the browns you will see how hard it has been for the city of Cleveland.

Fun book to read. The author Scott Huler describes his youth as a Cleveland Browns fan. He writes about how he came to love and appreciate the team.

The book is well-written and easy read. It brings back fond memories of old Cleveland Stadium and former Browns players and games. It includes chapters with interviews of numerous former Browns players. I highly recommend this book for all Cleveland sports fans, especially Browns fans.
