NFL team in Cleveland, Ohio. The Cleveland Browns were founded by Paul Brown and played their first season as a member of the All America Football Conference in 1946. The Browns won the AAFC title 4 straight years (1946, '47, '48, and '49).
In 1950 the Browns became a member of the NFL. In their first game in the NFL they beat the deffending league champion Philladelphia Eagles 35-10. Later that year the Browns won the NFL title game over the L.A. Rams, becoming the first expansion team to win the NFL title in its first season. The Browns added two more championships in 1954, and 1955. From 1950 to 1957, the Browns played in 7 of the the 8 NFL title games, including 6 straight from '50-'55. In 1964, the Browns defeated the heavily favored Baltimore Colts 27-0 in the NFL title game, winning their 4th NFL championship.
In the 1980s, the Browns won the AFC Central Division Championship 5 times, and made it as far as the AFC championship game 3 times (1986, '87, and '89). However, all three times, the Browns were denied a trip to the Super Bowl by the Denver Broncos.
In 1995 the team's owner Art Model moved the team to Baltimore and it became the Ravens. However, due to an outcry from Cleveland and it's fans, the NFL agreed to restore the Browns, and all of the stats records, and history as well. The Ravens were considerd an expansion team, and the Browns resumed play under the same NFL franchise in Cleveland in 1999.
The new Cleveland Browns have struggled over the past 7 years, but acttualy made the playoffs in 2002 as a wild card.

A college football team with very cocky fans. UM, sorry, make that scUM fans constantly bring up their many national titles and their series lead over Ohio State. But they never mention that 10 of their 11 NCs were won in the leather helmet era, and that they haven't won an undisputed NC since 1949. Also, their series lead against the Buckeyes is pretty much only because they beat OSU alot back in the 1800s and early 1900s, when OSU was still a small A&M type school. Since 1950, the OSU/UM rivalry series has been prety much equal. (and Ohio State has won 4 of the last 5)
Michigan Wolverines fan: We always own the Buckeyes
OSU Buckeyes fan: What about all those times we beat you?
Michigan Wolverines fan: Um.....well.....derr....i don't know
OSU Buckeyes fan: What a moron

Fast food chain, basically a burger joint. Some of it's signature food items include (but are not limited to): Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger, Classic single (double and triple) burger, Spicy Chicken Sandwich, Crispy Chicken nuggets, Chili, Baked potatoes, Side Salads, and of course...the best thing about Wendy's...the Frosty (which is a chocolate, or now also vanilla, ice cream treat. A Frosty, however, is thicker than a milkshake, yet lighter than actual ice cream)
Wendy's founder was Dave Thomas. Thomas opened the first Wendy's in downtown Columbus, Ohio in 1969. The restaurant was named after his daughter, Wendy Thomas. Since then the company has grown into an international corporation, with retaurants all over the US and the world. It's corporate headquarters is located in Dublin, Ohio (Columbus suburb)
Dave Thomas dided in 2002. However, Wendy's always has, and still uses the slogan "We do it Dave's way"
I'm goin to Wendy's, you can't beat their 99 cent menu.
Additional time added to the end of a soccer (football) game. Since soccer has a constantly running clock that stops for nothing, alot of "playing time" is wasted away for any these reasons: injuries, a goal scored and the celebration that follows, arguing with officials, substitutuons, red and yellow cards, and taking forever on throw-ins, free kicks, corner kicks and goal kicks. (as well as a few other posibilities)
This added time ia supposed to make up for some of that wasted time.
Stoppage time can be anywhere from 1 minute to 5 minutes long, but is not exact. It always just seems like the referee can stop the game randomy, and know one but him knows when the game will be final.
Person 1: I wish that soccer had a clock that actually stops when a problem arrises or nothing is going on.
Person 2: Yeah, that whole stoppage time thing doesn't make a lot of sense.
MLB team in St. Petersburgh , Florida. Stadium: Tropicana Field.
The Devil Rays exist for 3 reasons:
1. So that peolpe living in Florida who are origionaly from other states can see their team play in person without having to travel back to their home city.
2. So that other MLB teams can get some easy wins now and then
3. So people in the Tampa area would finaly stop bitching about not having an MLB team
1. He's origionaly from Cleveland, but he lives in Fort Meyes. He sure is glad he can still see the Tribe play by just driving up to Tampa.
2. If the Red Sox are going to make up some ground, they'll need some easy wins. It's a good thing they have a 4 game series vs the Tampa Bay Devil Rays next week!
3. Can you believe that Tropicana Field was built many years before the Devil Rays existed, because the Tampa area wanted an MLB team. Well they finaly got one, too bad it sucks.
Nickname for Ohio Stadium, where the Ohio State Buckeyes
play home football games. It has a cpacity of over 105,000 people and is called simply "the shoe" by most Ohioans. The stadium is shaped like a horseshoe, thus the reason for the nickname (though the open part now has seats and a huge scoreboard).
This year the Ohio State/Michigan game will be played in the Horseshoe, and the Buckeyes will probably win.
