Browns fans in Houston

Great story in the Houston Chronicle about Browns fans. Including a kid who used to live down the street from me in Middleburg Hts., Texans 3rd string QB Dave Ragone.

Ragone, the Texans’ third-string quarterback, was born in Middleburg, Ohio, about three hours from Cleveland. He became a standout athlete at St. Ingatius High School in Cleveland. Life revolved around football. “My whole family follows the Browns,” Ragone said. “They’ve always followed them.”

Umm, that would be Middleburg HEIGHTS, Ohio, fellas. Ragone isn’t so much of a Browns fan anymore, apparently, but Reliant Stadium is expecting a lot of Browns fans.

“Cleveland fans are crazy for their team,” said cornerback Lewis Sanders, who spent his first five years in the NFL at Cleveland before joining the Texans this season. “That tradition is what makes the team so special. All you’d ever hear about was the Dawg Pound. They love their team.”

Yeah. We love our team. Even when they stink up the place.
