Remember the ’80s

LeBron’s been gone a good nine months now. The Indians never draw particularly well during the regular season. The Browns? Well, they just became the hottest ticket in town.

Seriously, good luck getting to tickets to a Browns game this season.

Fans under the age of 33 hear lots of stories about Bernie Kosar and those great teams of the 1980s, but words and anecdotes is all it is for lots of fans.

Then you’ve got all of the fans who came of age during the expansion era. They have no idea what’s about to hit the city of Cleveland.

No more empty orange seats or Terrible Towels infiltrating from the east.

Instead, a Browns-Town atmosphere reminiscent of what transpired at old Municipal Stadium during the last great run of the franchise.

For younger fans who missed those times, you might have been lucky enough to be at that last home game against the Bengals. Now, go ahead triple the intensity and quadruple the excitement. When the Browns hosted that Week 16 contest, they were a long shot to make the playoffs, but that didn’t stop Browns town from reminding the NFL that we’re the greatest fan base in the league.

With the superstar power now here, in addition to the expectations, Browns games will be the main event not just in Cleveland, but in the National Football League.

There’s been a lot of talk about the Browns being on national television. The networks haven’t announced schedules yet, but if the Browns weren’t already stated for four primetime games, they will be now.

Star power sells, so my guess is two appearances on Sunday night football, one on Monday night football and then the Thursday night contest.
