The Factory of Sadness hosts the hapless, broken down wreck that is the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. Even though the Steelers are starting 900-year-old Charlie Batch and now feature Plaxico Burress in their receiving corps, the Browns must think they’re still too doopy to pull an upset of their division rivals. At least that’s what it looks like because the Browns will be distributing white flags to fans on Sunday.
The Browns announced on Wednesday on the team’s offficial Facebook page that fans who attend the game against the Steelers will receive an inflatable flag, which just happen to be white. (It does have the orange helmet on it.)
Ostensibly, this is actually being done to counteract the Terrible Towels that away fans will be twirling, terribly, in droves, as has been the case at many a Steelers-Browns game in Cleveland in the past. They might want to consider also doing it for when Baltimore comes to town, as Rice has apparently taken a shine to the towel in recent days.
