Randy Galloway retired a few months ago from the day to day joys of sports journalism, but the venerable sports writer/radio host still can't quit the junk. In retirement, he has become a fan of golf, and now the Cleveland Browns.
Randy's transition to Browns' homer began when the Cleveland Browns selected Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel with the 22nd pick in the 2014 NFL draft. Randy, like most sane members of the North Texas area media, desperately wanted Mr. Football to go to the Cowboys ... which easily could have happened.
Alas, the Dallas Cowboys selected Notre Dame offensive lineman Zach Martin with the 16th pick, thus crushing the idea that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones would "clear the room", and draft Manziel.
Randy sent me the following text message: "I'm buying Browns season tixs .. you and Jerry are football idiots."
I sent him: "You are insane. The guy will be a bum."
Randy: "Oh Yeah ... Tony (Romo) with a bad back and no defense. You, Jerry and Tony ... The Dead Sea Three."
