6 Bs and a P: Hoagie – Episode 71

The Browns are just terrible. Terrible. And we had fairly low expectations. Anyway, we put off a show for a while just because we couldn’t even talk about it. We try below. Actually, a more apt description is that we try NOT to talk about the Browns but end up doing it anyway.  We’ll be back with another episode in November, in the mean time I would say to root for the Cleveland baseball team… but…
