Joseph's History Scrapbook (Locker Room)
Joseph's Cleveland Browns Scrapbook (NFL)
I thought it was a solid draft. I'm just glad Edwards and Quinn weren't traded.
Jim Brown, Otto Graham, Brian Sipe & Mike Pruitt, the Kardiac Kids, Bernie Kosar, Ozzie Newsome, Kevin Mack, Frank Minnifield (the first Browns football card I got!), Clay Matthews, Webster Slaughter, Eric Metcalf, Eric Turner, Phil Dawson, Braylon Edwards, Josh Cribbs...and yes, Tim Couch.
Why I am a fan:
I was bred into it, but it was easy to fall in love with the Browns being a child of the '80s.
January 3, 1987--Divisional Playoff game vs. the Jets--absolutely insane! September 17, 2000--First home win since being reactivated, and it was over the Steelers! September 16, 2007--51-45 over the Bengals...Derek Anderson's coming out party...what a fun game. November 18, 2007--Dawson's physics defying kick

50% Complete Bio
My dad is from Portsmouth, Ohio. He raised me to root for the Browns and Reds. I grew up mostly in Japan as he was in the Navy (over 8 years in Iwakuni, and nearly another 8 years in Okinawa). I spent a little over six years in the Air Force (stationed at Wichita Falls TX, Ogden UT, and Kunsan South Korea). Now I live in Austin.
|Schools:||Kubasaki High School, Okinawa, Japan|
|Relationship Status:||Free Agent (Single)|
|Occupation:||Semiconductor Wafer Equipment Technician|
|Places I lived:||Iwakuni & Okinawa, Japan; Mabalacat, Philippines); Pensacola, Florida; San Diego & Palm Springs California; San Antonio, Wichita Falls, Pharr & Aransas Pass, Texas; and Layton/Ogden, Utah.|
|Greatest Moment in Sports:||IMO, probably the Immaculate Reception or Kirk Gibson's home run in '88.|
|Greatest Athlete of All Time:||Jim Brown!|
|Greatest Coach of All Time:||Paul Brown! Starting to think I'm a bit biased?|
|Most Disappointing Sports Moments:||The Drive or Pete Rose not appearing on the 2007 ballot. Scott Norwood's miss ranks up there (poor Bills...and sorry, but I just can't bring myself to be happy for teams based out of New York City).|
|Fantasy Sports I Play:||NFL, MLB, NBA, NASCAR|
|Fantasy Skill Level:||I'm very competitive in fantasy football. The strategy I employ depends on the league rules....it's different with every league. I also enjoy fantasy baseball and basketball, but I'm not as hardcore about it. Fantasy Nascar is just something I mess around with.|
|Current Skill Level:||I've always been terrible at sports. However, I do enjoy playing football.|
|Sports Figures from my Hometown:||I consider Okinawa, Japan as my hometown. So yeah...there aren't a lot of sports figures from there. Dave Roberts (journeyman speedster who played with the Indians, Dodgers, Red Sox, Padres and Giants) was born in Oki.|
|Dream Sports Job:||Who wouldn't want to be a color commentator/analyst?|
|Beer of Choice:||Guiness or Newcastle|
|Hottest Athletes:||Gina Carano|
|Ugliest Athletes:||Greg Oden....LOL|
|Favorite Sports Announcers:||Al Michaels and John Madden were a great team.|
|Least Favorite Sports Announcers:||Don't care much for Tony Kornheiser. Dick Vitale has always annoyed me.|
|Favorite Sports Movies:||Raging Bull, Field of Dreams, Caddyshack|
|Sports Video Games I Play:||EA Madden Series, NBA 2K Series|
|Video Game Skill Level/ Playing Style:||I'm not very good at Madden. I mean, I'm fine on defense and run offense, but I just can't seem to throw that ball. Short passes and screens I'm ok with, but anything long...I'm just always way off. I think I'm decent at NBA 2k. I'm more effective when I use teams that have good rebounding and can execute fast breaks.|
|Favorite Sports Video Games:||I really enjoy the NBA 2K series.|
|Non-Sports Hobbies and Interests:||Computers & my old PS2, Guitar, reading.|
|Movies:||Back to the Future Trilogy, Godfather movies, anything from Darren Aronofsky and most of the Robert Zemeckis movies.|
|TV:||Don't watch a lot of TV outside of sports, but I have been enjoying 'Fringe' and 'Lie To Me' of late.|
|Music:||Fairly eclectic tastes...but mostly rock and metal. Some of favorite musicians are Porcupine Tree, Depeche Mode, Behemoth, Death, Katatonia, and Peter Gabriel.|
|Video Games:||Civ IV, DAoC, Soul Calibur series...one day I'll get a 360.|
Teams Joseph Hates
|Notre Dame Fighting Irish|
|Why I Hate Them:||Enough already, I'm tired of always hearing about them...they suck. They did produce Brady Quinn, but until he becomes the full-time starter in Cleveland and helps the Browns to the Super Bowl, the Irish aren't off the hook.|
|Players I Hate:||None added yet...|
