THE BROWNS BOARD

Survey Monday August 23


The Gipper

Recommended Posts

Here is your survey for today: Give your opinions:

 

1. What is your favorite sports themed comedy movie?

 

 

2. What is your favorite "Reality" show? (Live sports not included)

 

 

3. What are your thoughts on a statue to Al Lerner being erected outside Browns stadium?

 

 

4. Sunday was National Go Topless Day. Should women have the constitutional right to go bare chested in public the same way men can?

 

 

5. Bizarre alternate reality question:

Setup: In the late 800s the Danes and the Norse occupied much of what is today England. In the year 878 then, Alfred, King of Wessex (later Alfred The Great of England) had his "kingdom" reduced through Danish invasions to a few square miles of swamp in Somerset County (SW England) where he was hiding from the Danes who were out after him before he was able to rally his people and later retake nearly all of England in the years to come. Had the Danes captured and killed Alfred the country we know today as England would probably never have come into existance. Instead, it would have become Daneland or Norseland or something.

Question: How do you think history would have been changed had the Danes captured/killed Alfred in those swamps and had England never come to pass?

Here is your survey for today: Give your opinions:

 

1. What is your favorite sports themed comedy movie?

Major League or Waterboy

 

2. What is your favorite "Reality" show? (Live sports not included)

None. Seriously.

 

3. What are your thoughts on a statue to Al Lerner being erected outside Browns stadium?

Was this their plans? I think this is a good idea. He was a key part in bringing the Browns back. We still wear AL on our jerseys. We should do this if possible.

 

4. Sunday was National Go Topless Day. Should women have the constitutional right to go bare chested in public the same way men can?

YES! Anyone with a penis will say the same thing.

Lots of catalysts. This wouldn't be the USA that's for sure. I believe their would be a few dozen countries split up in the area that we call the USA.

Here are my own views:

 

1. What is your favorite sports themed comedy movie?

 

Hard to pick, but ultimately overall I think it has to come down to Caddyshack.

But subspecies by sport though how about: Hockey: Slapshot

Baseball: Major League or Bull Durham

Basketball: none that I can think of really

Football: The original "Longest Yard"

Bowling: The Big Lebowski

 

 

2. What is your favorite "Reality" show? (Live sports not included)

 

I am still a Survivor guy as #1

I also like Top Chef

Though there was a new one called Work of Art in which they brought artists together. One of the artists one this drop dead gorgeous, built like a brick shithouse chick who always seemed to ending up doing nudes of herself. A veritable treat.

 

 

3. What are your thoughts on a statue to Al Lerner being erected outside Browns stadium?

 

Like I said in another thread, I would prefer they do statues of "The Cleveland Browns" Paul Brown/Jim Brown/Joe Louis.

But, Randy owns the team and he wants to have a statue of his Dad up there who only owned the team for 2-3 years all I can say is: Fine. Release the pigeons.

 

 

4. Sunday was National Go Topless Day. Should women have the constitutional right to go bare chested in public the same way men can?

 

Believe it or not, I am a bit conflicted. If this happens you gotta take the good with the bad. You might get the ones like I described above, but, you may also get the ones who are 70 years old with banana and rutabaga boobs.

 

 

5. Bizarre alternate reality question:

Setup: In the late 800s the Danes and the Norse occupied much of what is today England. In the year 878 then, Alfred, King of Wessex (later Alfred The Great of England) had his "kingdom" reduced through Danish invasions to a few square miles of swamp in Somerset County (SW England) where he was hiding from the Danes who were out after him before he was able to rally his people and later retake nearly all of England in the years to come. Had the Danes captured and killed Alfred the country we know today as England would probably never have come into existance. Instead, it would have become Daneland or Norseland or something.

Question: How do you think history would have been changed had the Danes captured/killed Alfred in those swamps and had England never come to pass?

 

OK, on this lets start just with some basics: Alfred the Great actually invented the term "Anglo-Saxon" and though he didn't invent the term, he is the one who created the land known as England and he gave us the name of the language "English". (Don't know if you all knew that..it is why he is the only "English King" called "The Great")

So, if he had been buried in the swamps we might all now be speaking Danish instead of occasionally having one for breakfast.

Thus perhaps we have no Chaucer, no Shakespeare, no Beatles, etc. Paul Revere might have cried "The Danish are coming, the Danish are coming". England wouldn't swing like a pendulum do. We all might be named Canute or Bjorn or somesuch. The line "something rotten in Denmark" would never probably made it way into our lexicon.

So, yea, amazing. Its like, what would have happened if George Washington had been captured or killed....only the repercussions oddly may have been even greater.

Why not? But to do so before we win a superbowl would be tasteless..

Absolutely!

 

 

5. Bizarre alternate reality question:

If it wasnt alfred the great it would have been someone else perhaps even the irish/scottish celts that would have eventually rose up and won their freedom and their lands back from the norsemen just like the irish united and expelled the vikings after 700 years of domination only to have the normans and then the saxons invade..never a break for the emerald isle..there is no doubt that minus alfred things would be considerably different though regardless of the outcome of who won or didnt overcome the danes...

Cal, great call in sandlot. That was a classic... "you play ball like a girl"

 

 

I honestly didn't think of The Sandlot. GREAT movie. I also liked League of Their Own (where they really did play like girls) but didn't think of it as a comedy. Hmm.

Junior can and will do what he wants to do ... BUT ... we have the greatest coach, greatest QB and greatest player of all time ... so I'd much rather see Paul Brown, Otto Graham and Jim Brown when I walk in.

I don't think it is a consTITutional issue. Those BOOBS in Washington would screw it up anyway. Each individual state should keep aBREAST of the situation with their own privacy laws. We don't even have topless beaches here in NIPPLES Naples.

Excellent point. Like at certain beaches, you can look, but not stare.

 

Which is apparently maybe more than a tenth of a second?

I'VE ALWAYS BEEN MORE OF A WILLIAM THE CONQUEROR FAN MYSELF.

 

The Danes and the Norse or Vikings as they are also known (this event took place within the 1st 100 years of the Viking age) had a tendency to blend in and eventually adopt much of the culture they had just overwhelmed. I doubt this would have happened so early in the age of Viking expansion. This brings me back to William the Conqueror. With the Norman conquest of 1066 (Normans : Scandinavians who converted to Christianity and controlled Normandy in Northern France) they became the ruling aristocracy for England and set the tone for what the British Empire would become.

 

Like someone said before the British Empire brought order to much of the world.

Perhaps you are aware that a large contingent of the conquering Norman army were made up of people from Brittany...which in fact got its name from the Britons that were displaced by the Saxons who had taken over the isle several hundred years earlier and emigrated to what is today northern France. In essence, some think that the Norman conquest was in part merely a retaking of the "homeland" by it original inhabitants.

In fact, there is some theory in history that William the Conqueror was perhaps a descendant of the legendary King Arthur, during whose realm the invading Saxons were successfully fought off, but after his death his descendants were forced to abandon Briton for Brittany.

So, Arthur, the once and future King, indeed may have had his future come to fruition.....and have that fruit blossom to this very day, as Queen Elizabeth is in fact a direct descendant of William the Conqueror.

Yes, I'm aware of that. I didn't spend all that time at YSU for nothing.

 

There are theories that Arthur was Roman too. So maybe the question for this week should be were would the world e without The Roman Empire?

Well, considering this is August, and it is named after Augustus Caesar..who even more than July Julius Caesar was responsible for the creation of the Roman Empire...I guess we would at minimum have different names for our months.

Maybe we would be operating under the Metric Time system that the French Revolutionaries attempted to implement.

(10 months in a year...of 36 or 37 days in a month....10 hours in a day, 100 minutes to an hour, 100 seconds to a minute)
