Mike Polk Jr’s “At Least We’re Not Detroit”

Earlier this week we covered the feelings from Cleveland Browns fans towards Ohio based Pittsburgh Steelers fans. In that is a great picture and a video from Cleveland based comedian Mike Polk Jr.

Today the Cleveland Browns take on the Detroit Lions in a battle of the Great Lakes. Polk created a video a few years back that applies greatly to today’s game. Win or lose, hopefully a win, this will still be true.

Obviously we share in jest but for two cities who have had their share of struggles financially, socially as well as in sports trading shots with each other is a fun way. Most Ohioans have issues with the state Detroit lies in as well. Buckeyes don’t like Wolverines. Hopefully in sports, as well as all other ways, both cities can rise up in Phoenix metaphorical ways. Today’s game is between teams that are both 3-2, with the winner moving one step closer to the playoffs.

Does Detroit have any similar comic videos regarding Cleveland or Ohio?

    Hello Jared,

    I am intrigued in knowing if this is the full article or if there was a way to find the full article. I am the female in that picture. That was the game we traveled to for my actual bday. Amazing win and was so sad that I was unable to get my hands on the newspaper article for memorabilia.

    Thanks for your time, the game was great
    Jessica

      Jessica,

      That picture is a part of USA Today’s picture gallery. They take a wide variety of pictures during the games for us to use in our articles. I don’t know if it is in print anywhere but here is the online version:

      My guess is that you can reach out to them.
