Bud booger

A guy named Bud Carson was once the head coach for the Cleveland Browns*.

I don't remember when he was coach, how the Browns did under his leadership, or who his star players were. The only thing I remember about Bud Carson is a scant few seconds of film.

One of the network cams zoomed in on Carson during (what I assume was) a crucial moment in the game. Right then, Carson was picking his nose. The camera got him just as he was removing finger from nostril. Carson was inspecting whatever he had pulled out as the camera cut away.

I doubt verbalizing the lesson therein is necessary.

*In Cleveland, being a Browns fan is obligatory. They never really win and they never really lose, but you have to back them anyway. It's just the way it is and no one effs around asking any questions. Cleveland Browns Fan is a disease you get when you first inhale and have until your last exhale.

For those who rabidly back the Browns, it's sort of like The Devil in Miss Jones, no matter how much action you get, there's never a climax.

Off subject but notable: there is too much snow here and it came too early.

Okay people, I just reread this entry.

You've got snow, climax, boogers, football and a porn movie all in one post.

You can't get that sort of service just anywhere.

I know. I'm left reeling.

And I will note that now, for all eternity (or for what passes for eternity on this here internet thingy), Bud Carson is associated with The Devil In Miss Jones.

Would explain why Bud's tenure as coach was so short. He succeeded Marty Schottenheimer, who left after The Fumble. Carson's first year was not bad. Carson's short second year was...

In Cincinnati, his job would be assured for the next five years.

You have to pity his successor, Jim Shoffner (sp?), who had to make up the lamest excuses as to why the Browns lost so badly under an interim coach. He knew he was Bellichick's bench warmer.

The Eighties' Browns. How I miss them.

It looks like you have more snow than we do, Erin! Happy Thanksgiving.

Am amazed.

That's a lot of snow. I'm wearing short sleeves, and should really get the yard mowed after work today.

Happy pre-Turkey Day.

I miss the snow, Erin. Can you send some my way? Thanks for today's post (the porn movie and climax are added bonus features) ....

He probably would have been happier coaching the Denver Nuggets.

Julie said...

wow you really do have a lot of snow and while I agree that it is way too early for that it looks pretty, at my house there is no snow whatsoever.

I think I saw that Bud Carson clip on "Overpaid Sports Monkeys do the darndest things..."

Maybe...

And a Happy Thanksgiving to all.

I remember seeing that somewhere. Obviously, that was his coaching strategy.

Long time, no blog. Great to see you here.

Have a great holiday,

I do not know about Bud Carson or the Cleveland Clowns, er, Browns. I have yet to watch the Devil In Miss Jones. But, I can say with some certainty that we have more snow than you. Happy American Thanksgiving... :-)
