12 Days of Christmas goes old school

Congratulations are in order to co811809 who had the winning comment from Friday and will be enjoying a Lake Erie Monsters hockey game!

Yesterday was an ugly game and loss for the Browns. It certainly had me nostalgic for better days at the stadium. Today we’re giving away a bit of that nostalgia.

Just a reminder how the giveaway works. Each weekday we will give away a Cleveland themed prize. To enter, you need only to respond in the comment section in the appropriate manner. The winner each day will be randomly selected and notified by email. (Which means you better make sure that the email address you use to comment here is a legit one.) I cannot guarantee delivery by Christmas. We’ll do our best with the things we have in hand. Only one member of a household can enter each day, and only one winner per household during the length of this contest. Just spreading the love around.

And now today’s contest-

Today’s Prize:

This prize is a great one. First, you get an 18×12 inch photo of Cleveland Browns Webster Slaughter and Reggie Langhorne doing the famous leaping high five during a game against the Broncos. Both Slaughter and Langhorne have signed it. In addition, you get the t-shirt from GV Art and Design that the photo inspired. Any Browns fan old enough to remember the Bernie Kosar days would LOVE to have this pair.

Today’s Question:

There have been many great moments in Cleveland sports (no really, I swear). Today’s question simply asks if you could get in a time machine with tickets to any Cleveland sporting event in history what would it be?

Remember that to enter you need to 1) re-state the question and 2) answer the question.

Comments must be posted by midnight Cleveland time in order to qualify for the drawing. Check back tomorrow at noon for the results. Remember, only one entry is allowed, but you may still comment to add to the discussion.

Good luck!

    Bob Feller’s Opening Day No-No. Can’t think of anything better than opening day baseball, a Tribe win, and Rapid Robert being unhittable.

    It sounds crazy, but I would love to see the last Cleveland Barons game in 1978. Even if it was a loss, I would have loved to see hockey in C-Town. The Blue Jackets, bless their hearts, just aren’t the same.

    Browns v Jets, 1986. Knowing all the heartbreak coming up, I would want to enjoy the glow of such an awesome game!

    As many others have mentioned, if I could have some effect on the outcome, I would orchestrate a plot to kidnap Elway prior to the Drive game…hey, my fingerprints aren’t in any database in 1986!

    1964 Championship game. It would be nice just to see the Browns win one. Don’t want anything more than that!

    July 5th, 1947 – Larry Doby’s first game. It would be amazing to watch such courage.

    I’d go the other direction and have the time machine take me to the future when the Indians, Browns, or Cavs win a title, because I may not be alive to see it otherwise.

    The 1997 All-Star game. I want to see Sandy blast the HRs in front of the home crowd. Or, LeBron’s 48 special. I watched it on TV, but to be there would be amazing

    Game 7 of the ’97 series. At least this time when the Tribe blows it and the 10 year old version of myself cries and vomits in disgust it will be all over whatever fair weather Marlins fan was sitting in front of me instead of on my living room carpet.

    The Game in the eastern conference finals against Detroit where Lebron scored 25 straight points and Boobie Gibson went wild in the Palace. Being a young Cleveland sports fan this is one of my favorite memories sadly. Either this or the game where Fausto and the gnats beat the Yankees.

    October 24th, 1993 to see Eric Metcalf return the 2 punts for touchdowns and beat the hated Steelers.

    10/5/20 – Game 5 of the World Series – A grand slam, a home run by a pitcher, Wamby’s unassisted triple play and a Cleveland WIN!

    Id probably go January 6,1990 which was Bernie’s last playoff win against Buffalo. I thought the third time would be the charm against Denver but it was not to be. In some ways it least that championship game wasn’t as painful as the first two

    The infamous “Ten Cent Beer Night” – Rangers at Indians, June 4, 1974 – because I’m a cheap, belligerent drunk.

    Opening Day at Jacobs Field, 1994. So much hopefulness and excitement… I was young and optimistic instead of old and bitter and disappointed and bald.

    It’s been said, but I’ll pick the 1948 World Series as well. I’m a subscriber to the theory that if time travel were possible, one couldn’t change how events occurred. Causality and all that, you know.

    My pick would be the Browns 1964 Championship game.

    But I have to give honorable mentions to the Bob Feller no-hitters. Either the 1940 opening day no-no or the 1-0 win against DiMaggio and the Yankees in New York.

    September 29, 1954–Although the Indians lose game 1 of the World Series to the Giants in 10 innings, I’d be able to determine for myself whether the throw after was more impressive than Willie Mays’ famous catch.

    Any game that featured Otto Graham. He’s my favorite Brown of all time, and he retired 30 years prior to my birth. It would be something else to see an All Time Great on a Championship Team.

    Indians comeback win july 15th 2001. 6 spot on Mo Riv in the bottom of the ninth capped with an unlikely bill selby walkoff granny with two outs. The pitch before selby hit it down the line and was inches foul..

    This was a toss up between Selby walkoff granny and would of loved to see the joba meltdown in person. Wow both vs. the yanks even better.

    A tough question with a very simple answer. The 1948 World Series. If I need to explain why, you’re not a very educated fan.
