When you live in a world with Amazon.com and professional sports, you just know that you’re going to end up with some really bad team branded products. Those products get searched out this time of year as potential presents for giant sports fans, no matter how ludicrous. In fact sometimes the more inane they are, the more likely they’re chosen as gifts. With that in mind, I decided to identify these gifts and open them up for commentary by WFNY writers and alumni.
Without further ado, I bring you the next in this series… “Browns Fuzzy Dice.”
Craig: It used to be a prize from a crane game in a local restaurant or truck stop, but now you can have rear-view mirror fuzzy dice emblazoned with the Cleveland Browns logo! The Wikipedia page on “fuzzy dice” (Yep. There is one.) says that these plush, pane pillows might have originated from World War II pilots who carried dice in planes for luck wanting to bring the practice home and into their cars. It also says that hanging any object from your rear-view mirror is illegal in the state of Minnesota. Not in Ohio though, baby!
I just tagged a sentence with “baby!” I even hate myself right now.
Denny: Got to roll me (Keep on rolling) /repeat for decades
Kirk: Browns dice: where every roll is snake eyes!
Scott: Doubles as a noose in the event Brandon Weeden is seen warming up on the sidelines.
DP: Browns dice: you’re supposed to throw then under handed.
Kirk: I laughed so hard at the last Weeden joke of yours DP about the steak being intercepted by another table and the waiter underhanding it that I had a coworker ask me if I was okay.
DP: I’m totally going to continue beating that joke to death, just so you all know.
Denny: You’ve got about two left in the tank, by my estimation.
DP: As if I would stop once it’s actually dead…
Fuzzy dice. I know someone has to have gotten this for a present due to the fact that they’re a Browns fan. Ugh.
