Paul’s still gone, which is probably a good thing considering the content of the Uni Watch inbox. As was noted by, say, 15 or 20 people yesterday, the Browns are breaking out the brown pants tonight.
And I know what you’re thinking — “That’s a lot of brown.” You got that right. And it gets worse: there are no stripes on the pants. All brown. And the socks? All brown. Um … cool?
So, while fans may think the Browns are playing like crap, here at Uni Watch we’ll be happy to say, “And they look like crap, too! Literally.”
Or, bigger turd: the unis or Brady Quinn? I could go on all day, but I’m sure it’s going to spiral out of control on its own accord. Don’t let me down.
Uni Watch News Ticker: Here’s some more info on the Serbian NOB from Saturday’s entry, courtesy of Adam Chkautovich: “The Serbians have two alphabets. They are the exact same alphabet, but one uses English letters (Known as the ‘Latin’ script [Latinica is what it’s called in Serbian]). The other alphabet uses some English letters, but some do not mean the same thing (Ex: The “C” in Serbian is actually an “S”, an “H” is “N”, a “X” is a “H”, a “B” is a “V”, and a “P” is a “R”). This other alphabet is known as the [Cyrilica in Serbian].” Many thanks, Adam. … Brinke Guthrie wants to know if this logo will be used by the Cowboys this year. I’m gonna guess yes.
