The Helmet Toss

An open letter to all fellow die-hard Browns fans:
Whenever you are feeling down or pessimistic, just think about the infamous plays in Browns history and everything will seem relatively well.
Remember the helmet toss game? It was September 8, 2002 in Cleveland. The opponent was the Kansas City Chiefs. The Browns were winning 30-17 with about eleven minutes left in the game. The Chiefs then outscored the Browns 23 to 9 to win the game 40-39. But if that was not ugly enough, it was the way that the game ended that made Browns fans sick to our stomachs. The score was 39-37 for Cleveland. It appeared that the final play of the game ended with #57 of the Browns, Dwayne Rudd, sacking Kansas City quarterback Trent Green. Great - the Browns won the season opener and everyone started pouring off the sideline onto the field for the usual post-game greetings. Not so quick.
Referee Ron Bluhm waved everyone back to the bench. He announced that Rudd had been penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct. What in the world could he have done? In celebration of the perceived sack, Rudd took off his helmet and tossed it down the field. Because of the flag, the ball was moved half the distance to the Browns' goal which set up Morten Andersen's 30-yard field goal to win the game with no time left on the clock. Butch Davis almost passed out.
Ahhhhh, the helmet toss. Right up there with Red Right 88 and a few others. So, remember that when you are upset with a call or a play this coming season, everything is relative.
Go Browns!
