Cleveland Browns rock!

Mudville Gazette shows why the Browns are Condi's favorite team...

Sometimes it's Fun to Watch Football!
Sweet! The Chicago Tribune reports the sort of story that should be more common:
Fifty Marines got a special thank you for their service from the NFL's Cleveland Browns--a free trip to Sunday's Super Bowl.
The Browns donated 50 tickets along the 50-yard line to the football championship between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots for Marines who have served or will serve in Iraq or Afghanistan.
Some of the tickets, which cost $500 and $600 each, were passed out to stunned Marines on Friday at Camp Lejeune. Tickets also were given out at Parris Island training base in South Carolina, Reserve Command in New Orleans and Central Command in Tampa.
"I've been pinching myself all day," said Lance Cpl. Tony Agosto, 22, a heavy-equipment mechanic from New York. "I feel like a kid on Christmas Day."
Some folks might be concerned about exposing Marines to violence, but I say it's fun to watch football! Three cheers for the Browns!
