At least the three game win streak was fun, right? Right?

Last night I caught up with former WFNY’er and current SBNation writer Brendan Porath.

WFNY Podcast – 2012-12-03 – Craig and Rick talk Browns and fan use of “we”

Rick and I have been talking “offline” about fan use of the word “we” when describing their favorite team. He uses “we” and I do not or at least try my hardest not to do so. Rick and I were wondering if that’s even a compelling topic, but I found it interesting. Let me know
