Browns beat the Panthers (we recorded this after week 14) to improve to 5-7-1 and remain “in the hunt” for the playoffs (you kidding me?) . Brian, Brian, and Ian get together to catch us all up on an exciting season of Browns football led by the greatest QB of all time: Baker Mayfield. We discuss what the Browns still need, how they are way more watchable, CBS’ smash hit God Friended Me, and we make up a few words along the way. Plus, 12 Days of Cleveland Browns Christmas. Happy Holidays!

Athena Headache – Episode 002

Welcome to another episode of Athena Headache (number 2 if you are counting) here on Aquabear Legion, this podcast is the place for all of the weird, strange, noisy, improv, and experimental music from the Midwest we can jam into it.

6 Bs and a P – Karmic Clapback – Episode 72

We’re back! The Browns have gone 1-31 the last two years, so we didn’t do as many episodes. And what do we get upon our return? A tie. Which is not a loss. Brian and Ian discuss the off-season, the draft, Hard Knocks, and the first game of the season. Luke can’t make it because he could not get his modem on the Davone Bess Memorial Connection. We do get quick visits from Wiebe on the Broken Bandwagon and Bork Torkleson with a sideline report. Go Browns?!? 0-0-1! NOTE: This was recorded before the Browns loss to the Saints in Week 2.

Athena Headache – Episode 001 | The Western Reserve – Episode 020

Aquabear Legion has brand new show titled Athena Headache that will focus on the fringes of Ohio and Midwestern music. Noise, experimental, improvisational, weird, strange, and everything in between. The hosts of the show will rotate and since Brian (who hosts Western Reserve) is doing the first one it only made sense to have the first episode of Athena Headache also be the new episode of The Western Reserve. Like some sort of comic book crossover! Plus, this episode finishes off where our last episode of The Western Reserve left off. This time it’s the more experimental end of our host’s college years in Athens, with a whole bunch of noise from 2001-2007 or so: Weedghost, Dinner of Swords, Casiotone Orchestra, Dead Winds of Summer, Leslie Keffer, and even the one time only Toneghost Freakestra. Perfect for your headphones, a workout, or some background music. Please find us on iTunes and Google Play here soon and subscribe, rate, review, and tell your friends.

6 Bs and a P: We Are Either Coming Strong Or We Are Not Coming At All – Episode 69

This podcast features terrible language regularly. Hot off the press for Super Bowl Sunday…It’s the season finale! The Browns finish 1-15, but the 6b1p crew finds a way to maybe, maybe, maybe find a little hope. They discuss the season, look for hope, avoid the topic of football, and took too long to edit so at least a half dozen references will be out of date nonsense. Thanks to Wiebe for editing this one, we will see you for episode 70 right around the draft (a.k.a. Our Super Bowl). Go Browns!

6 Bs and a P: Everyone Hates Collingsworth – Episode 68

Happy Holidays! We told you it would not be as long of a wait for the next episode of 6 Bs and a P, Dave. This is a quick one but packs all the hard hitting laughs and cutthroat analysis you have come to expect from 6 Bs and a P. On Episode 68 we mostly go live to Brian watching the Browns/Bengals game with the one and only Miles Down of Athens, Ohio. They discuss being fans of Ohio football teams, Tim Krumrie, beer, why the Browns might be bad, and how despite rooting for different teams we all hate Cris Collingsworth and his stupid face just the same. Go 49ers!

6 Bs and a P – The Terrible Hole – Episode 67

Sorry it’s been so long. The Browns gave up and so did we for a bit, but we are back now and that is all that matters. The Browns may be 0-12 but the 6b1p crew give you a solid hour of funny non-Browns things and accidental forward thinking analysis. Brian, Ian, and Wiebe missed some important weeks: Trump is gonna be the president next year and Cleveland lost the World Series. They cover such questions as: What is the coldest you have ever been? Are there any good players on this team? Does Jordan Cameron listen to the Wu-Tang Clan? Take a listen and tell your friends… Go Browns!

6 Bs and a P: Johnny’s Grounded (Episode #63)

Listen Now: 6 Bs and a P: Johnny’s Grounded (Episode #63)

The Browns lose again, for the sixth time in a row and fall to 2-9 (2-10 after a loss to the Bengals by time this episode gets published) after a heart wrenching last second defeat on a blocked field goal that was ran back for a touchdown. Ugh. Brian, Kris, and Ian discuss the game for a bit, a famous Brown of Browns history, make fun of the Ravens, and try to find some funny things to talk about. Go Panthers!

6 Bs and a P: Videos Can Be a Lot of Things (Episode 62)

6 Bs and a P: Videos Can Be A Lot of Things (Episode 62)

It’s a bye week and somehow the Browns still lose. Manziel goes from starting QB to 3rd stringer for partyin’ (this got released right after this episode that he got demoted), and the 6b1p crew discusses everything from the Steelers loss, Michael Dean Perry, Bernie’s restaurant, Warhammer, and Thanksgiving. The Browns currently have the #1 pick though! So that is something, right? Go Browns!

6 Bs and a P: The Dave Demographic (Season 4, Episode 9)

6 Bs ad a P: The Dave Demographic (Season 4, Episode 9):

Browns… wait for it… lose. This time on Thursday night to the now 8-0 Bengals. Wiebe became a dad this week, congrats to him and Michelle! So as a replacement we have taken in one of key demographics, Dave Obenour. Dave, Kris, Ian, and Brian discuss the QB controversy, what there is to look forward to, put Dave on the hostseat, and even hang out with Don Pardo. And most importantly the 6b1p panel talks about whether the savior of this franchise could indeed be one Bernard Kosar. Go Browns!

6 Bs and a P: A Lot Like Krang (Season 4, Episode 8)

6 Bs and a P: A Lot Like Krang (Season 4, Episode 8):

Browns… LOSE. To the Cardinals last Sunday (hey, we are trying to catch up and this week was on Thursday, give us a break!) in one of the worst second half performances of the year, or maybe ever. They were winning for a bit but then that stopped. A quick discussion follows with Brian, Kris, and Ian while Wiebe awaits a child in Chicago. The group talks about Farmer’s press conference, Johnny Football, museum exhibits, misspoken Outkast lyrics, and what things might actually make watching the rest of the year bearable. Look for the Bengals/Thursday night game episode sometime next week, and hey at least we aren’t Lions fans right?

6 Bs and a P: Brownbaggin’ Roast Beef (Season 4, Episode 6)

6 Bs and a P: Barnidge at the Movies (Season 4, Episode 6)

The Browns lose a heartbreaker to the undefeated Denver Broncos in OT 26-23, looking a lot more like the Browns than last week but still a hard one nonetheless. Brian, Kris, and Wiebe discuss how Wiebe might become a father live on-air, Josh McCown, Gary Barnidge’s movie reviews, luck, Joe Jurevicius’ new career, and Joe “Turkey” Jones. There’s no Ian, though, Wiebe is here even though at any moment his wife would go into labor and bring a new being into the world that would be their child, but Ian couldn’t make it. Can Bernie Kosar save Johnny Football’s soul?

 

6 Bs and a P: The Meat of the Ham (Season 4, Episode 5)

Ha!

Listen to 6 Bs and a P: The Meat of the Ham (Season 4, Episode 5)

Sorry this one is a little late, in LAST week’s episode we celebrated a Browns win (spoiler alert: they ended up losing THIS past Sunday) with special guest Luke Edwards and covered topics ranging from why the Ravens are terrible, why the Browns are terrible, our hatred for our random teams, the Wu-Tang Clan, working on getting Ian to talk street, Luke comments on local news sites and more. But most importantly the Browns won and the Ravens lost. #konyhelpianmove2012

6 Bs and a P: Waiting For Austin Davis (Season 4, Episode 4)

Listen to 6 Bs and a P: Waiting For Austin Davis (Season 4, Episode 4)

The Browns lose… again. In an even more Brownsian way. The 6b1p crew discusses the bright spots, the terribly depressing spots, and all the mediocre spots inbetween. Is there any hope? Probably not with the combination of an underachieving defense and an offense that shouldn’t be playing this good but is still losing. The guys give their outlooks on topics for the rest of the season, look at some funny tweets, and you will even learn about an “Interesting Brown in Browns History” in our new segment. Go Browns?

6 Bs and a P: Paging Dr. Football (Season 4, Episode 2)

6 Bs and a P: Paging Dr. Football (Season 4, Episode 2)

Browns… lose. That’s 11 opening games in a row, 1-16 since their return in 1999. So, while not a surprise it still very much sucks. Was this the end of the Josh mcCown era in Cleveland? Will Jonathan Livingston Football continue to start the whole season? Will the Browns actually keep any draft picks beyond a year? Plus we put Ian on the hotseat (it’s his birthday), talk about Justin Gilbert throwing dip, and give updates on our other teams. Go Browns? Next week we are taking a bye week! See you after week 4.

6 Bs and a P: 2015 Draft Super Edition

It's Draft Day! Well... it was a couple months back.
It’s Draft Day! Well… it was a couple months back.

6 Bs and a P: 2015 Draft Super Edition

It’s been almost two months since the 2015 NFL Draft, so that seems like the perfect time for Aquabear’s own Browns podcast to give its beloved brand of analysis. The 6b1p crew assembled to record this about a month ago, about a month after the draft and by this point most of us had seen the Kevin Costner classic Draft Day. The boys break down the Browns draft and even try to guess the majors of the newest Cleveland Browns, and of course there is some talk of the upcoming 2015 season too. Oh, and we can’t forget those new uniforms, we had to talk about that. Go Browns!

6 Bs and a P: Season 3 Wrap Up Spectacular

At least the Browns can't lose in the offseason! Oh wait...
At least the Browns can’t lose in the offseason! Oh wait…

6 Bs and a P: Getaway Stew: A Season 3 Finale Spectacular:

So we recording this awhile ago and you will figure that out based on multiple incorrect and out of date references. Nevertheless, the 6b1p crew returns in it’s full co-host form, like a Voltron that just gets drunk and complains instead of actually doing something. We cover the season, off season, hope, despair, and make an attempt at logical reasoning all while hosting some year end awards and several funny segments. Look for a draft special in the coming months and we will be back for Season 4 (if Aquabear renews our deal) in August. Until then you can find all of us in Dwayne Bowe jerseys talking about how we think Josh McCown has enough in the tank still in the right system. Go Browns!

Well that was terrible. The Browns lose to the Bengals 30-0 in one of the worst games ever. Johnny Football played an awful game. Brian, Kris, and Dave discuss the game, the season, the future, and everybody Hotseats. Don Pardo even shows up. Go Browns?

6 Bs and a P: Pills vs. Stats (Season 3, Episode 13)

Welp, that seems to be it for Brian Hoyer. The Browns lose a close one to the Colts at home despite an incredible effort from the defense and Hoyer played yet another terrible game. It’s time for Johnny Football. 3 games left for the 7-6 Browns, who now need to win out and receive a lot of help to make the playoffs after being so close a few weeks back. The 6b1p crew discusses a game only 1 out of the 3 of them watched and get joined by the WolfeMann. Go Browns!

Well, there goes the hope. …Or does it? The Cleveland Browns play a terrible game and lose to the Buffalo Bills to fall to 7-5 and a three-way tie for last with Pittsburgh and Baltimore in the AFC North, all one and a half games behind the Bengals. And to top it all off Johnny Football makes his first appearance after Hoyer throws two interceptions. Football dives in for a meaningless touchdown on an exciting play and also gets run over by a large man and almost gives up a TD. The 6b1p crew talks about it all: Hoyer, Manziel, what a Buffalo Bill really is, Pie Town, and a whole lot more. Special guest: Snider. Go Browns!

6 Bs and a P: Peapody (Season 3, Episode 10)

Damn right, shirt.
Damn right, shirt.

6 Bs and a P: Peapody (Season 3, Episode 10)

The Browns… lose. Bad. So long first place, it was sweet while it lasted but even we have to admit it felt a little weird and ominous. Like when the cheerleader starts dating a nerd in a high school movie and you kind of know it’s because of a bet some popular kids made. And on top of that, one of the most important places in the world, The Union in Athens, Ohio was severely damaged in a terrible fire on West Union Street early Sunday morning. The 6b1pers do what they do best even in the face of a devastating day: they talk about, try to be funny, record it and hope you give it a listen. GO BROWNS. THE UNION FOREVER.

6 Bs and a P: Browns Browns Browns Browns Browns (Season 3, Episode 8)

The Browns are in first place, we just saw them win, and it was awesome.

Man, this short Browns week has us a little behind here on 6b1p. This episode features the 6b1p crew actually going to and at the Browns vs. Buccaneers game, where the Browns win and our hosts discuss and analyze topics ranging from our Quarterbacks to their favorite parts about attending the game. It’s Brian’s birthday and we set the record for hosts I think. Not to mention a record setting amount of locations including a vacation house on icy Lake Erie, a parking lot in downtown Cleveland, and Brian and Sherri’s car ride home. And then after only 4 days rest the Browns go on the road and defeat the Bengals in Cincinnati to go into a tie for first place with the Steelers in the AFC North. HOLY CRAP. Episode 9 (working title: “FIRST PLACE”) will come next week. GO BROWNS!

6 Bs and a P: The Horse and the Whore (s03ep06):

BROWNS WIN AGAIN! No clue how this is happening. The 6b1p crew works hard to process these unfamiliar feelings and make sense of it all and in the process talk about football, pie, how much the hate the Steelers, Brian Hoyer, and much more. They even play a game of the Pierogi Mountain 6b1p Pittsburgh Lightning Round Trivia. And the “P” word is brought up (PLAYOFFS?!? YOU TALKING ABOUT PLAYOFFS?) and a certain Lord of the Vale makes a trip to the studio from Westeros. Brian, Ian, and Kris hold it down this week and Wiebe checks in with a Broken Bandwagon. GO BROWNS!

6 Bs and a P: The Arbiter of Pies (s03e05)

BROWNS WIN! They move to 2-2 with a win over the very terrible Tennessee Titans and their temporary quarterback, Clipboard Jesus. But, it doens’t matter… the won! Join the 6b1p regular crew (minus Wiebe and plus Dave) as they discuss the win, the current state of the team, Brian Hoyer, marshmallow filling, and even get a check in from some 6b1p’ers who went to the game down in Nashville. All your favorite segments are there: Tweet of the Week, Broken Bandwagon, Pie Corner, and the brand new Darker Linings Playbook. Plus, a look ahead to the return of the hated Steelers to Cleveland for next Sunday’s game.

It’s week 3 and the 3rd episode of our 3rd season at 6b1p, and the Browns lose another last second heartbreaker, this time to the hated Ravens. Kris Poland doesn’t make it this week (spoiler alert his segment is just some awesome Tecmo Bowl music) but the crew is joined by a friend from Cincinnati, Ohio who has a way better football team where he is. Plus more pie corner and a lightning round about everything from felony weapons charges to twitter handles. Browns are 1-2 heading into the bye week, we are gonna regroup, see you soon! Go Browns!

Browns win! It was pretty unbelievable but the Cleveland Browns beat the New Orleans Saints, Wiebe even calls them a “well coached, competent team” which is quite the compliment. And not just any win, this might have been the biggest in years. It was only the second time these Cleveland Browns won their home opener since their return in 1999. The crew discusses the win and whether this can keep happening. GO BROWNS.

First game of the year was like a whole Browns season condensed into a three hour visual heart attack. One half they get outscored 27-3, and in the other they outscore the Steelers 27-3, but lose on a last second field goal. The crew of 6b1p hopes the 2014 Browns look a bit more like the ones we saw in the 2nd half of last week’s game. Plus, we debut another station ID spot from Browns legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer Leroy Kelly! There’s Tweets of the Weeks, Josh Gordon, Suspensions, Commercials, Silver linings, and Broken Bandwagons. GO BROWNS! Recorded: Sunday, September 7, 2014 Released: Wednesday, September 10, 2014 Season Three, Episode One: The Chains of Justice

6 Bs and a P: Bluntitus (Season 2, Episode 17):

The Browns lose. Davone Bess Instagramed a picture of himself smoking a blunt next to a poster of Bob Marley. Lots of things happening in this special Holiday 6b1P! Ian gets put on the hot seat, we hear a classic Browns Christmas song, discuss the future, and even have a little Davone Bess lightning round trivia. The Browns may be bad, but this podcast is not. Go Browns!

6 Bs and a P: That’s Your Cookie (Season 2, Episode 16):

The Browns lose again! But this time a bunch of 6b1p folks went to the game! As you see above Brian, Wiebe, and Michelle are there and Sherri was too (she took the picture). Everybody got cold and the Browns lost but it was still a good time. Brian talks about it here to Kris and Ian. Dave Obenour checks in with the first installment of Silver Linings Playbook and the Broken Bandwagon Fashion Consultant makes an appearance. The crew discusses peeing at a large sporting event, meathead sports fans, running backs, and more. We only have a few episodes left this season! Go Browns!

6 Bs and a P: The Shapeshifters Almost Return (Season 2, Episode 15):

Just when you have finally given up hope on the Cleveland Browns… they win 59 minutes of a game against one of the best teams in the league, the New England Patriots. Problem is that there is 60 minutes in a professional football game, and the Browns gave up 12 unanswered points to the Pats in the last 61 seconds of this game. Browns lost 27-26 and drop to 4-9. Brian and Ian are joined by new guest Luke and do a live Q + A from the audience over the magic of the internet. Kris fills in for Wiebe on Broken Bandwagon and everyone tries to find things to talk about that aren’t the Browns.

6 Bs and a P: I’m No Football Chef (Season 2, Episode 12)

Rest in Peace Lucy, Go Browns!
This episode is dedicated to the memory of Lucy, the Bassett Hound. Go Browns!

6 Bs and a P: I’m No Football Chef (Season 2, Episode 12):

This week tragic news struck Aquabear Legion and 6b1p HQ, Brian and Sherri’s beloved Bassett Hound Lucy got sick suddenly and passed away. The Browns did not get the memo about winning one for the Goose and lose to a terrible looking Bengals team 41-20 in a near tornado, but we pay the sweet dog some tribute ourselves. The Browns even gave up 31 unanswered points in the 2nd quarter to show they were serious about being so awful. A new guest joins Brian, Ian, and Kris to discuss the game (Kris was there! It was sad!) and whether there is any hope left that has not been hopekilled.  Go Browns?

6 Bs and a P: Bye Week Super Spectacular (Season 2, Episode 11):

The Browns did not win or lose because they did not play! It’s the bye week, but the 6b1p crew is so cautiously optimistic they still wanted to have a show. Dave comes back to discuss the Browns season going into the bye with the usual suspects: Brian, Ian, Wiebe, and Kris. 6b1p has a special Bye Week Midseason Award Show with such categories as “Biggest Disappointment”, “Hunkiest Brown”, and “Most Hope Killed/Best Baseball Player”. There’s predictions, trivia, and even talk of the playoffs. Go Browns!

Season 2, Episode 10: We Do Do It:

BROWNS WIN! They beat the hated Ravens for the first time in the last 12 games! To celebrate our team all got a little too hammered (except Kris) and Brian + Brian even watched the game together in Chicago (where they also recorded their part from), all in all it makes for a crazy podcast. We have the most guests EVER as Brian is joined by 9 people and a dog throughout the episode. This one has everything: yelling, drinking, tweets, game reviews, and even a Minnesota Reverse Spelling Bee. We return next week with a special SUPER BYE-WEEK SPECTACULAR EPISODE as the Browns sit at 4-5, 2nd in the AFC North and one game out of the Wild Card. Whoa.

6 Bs and a P and 20 QB’s (Season 2, Episode 9):

They Browns lose again! But, hey it’s not so bad. Our 3rd quarterback of the year (and 20th since 1999) Jason Campbell actually didn’t look to bad, but I mean the Chiefs are undefeated so they did win. The crew discusses the idea of Brandon Weeden’s hopekilling having to inhabit another Browns starter to survive (this week Davone Bess?), Jason Campbell’s wedding, and a whole lot more. GO BROWNS!

The Browns lose to a much better football team this week, defeated by the Packers in Green Bay 31-13. For the first time 6B1P goes international, welcoming Dr. Rick Dogdson live from Sheboygan, Wisconsin (British Green Bay Packers fan) along with the usual group of guests (and self proclaimed co-Host(s) Ian). The guys try to figure out why Brandon Weeden sucks so bad and how we make it through. Plus, Rick gets put on the hotseat to test his knowledge of Cleveland, Ohio.
