3. The entire offensive line
I’ve got a great turnout and quality entertainment. Hey, in my dreams, I have Joe Thomas manning the grill. So I’m going to go all out on food. Burgers, brats, brisket, ribs – all the meat food groups will be represented. But … my Momma taught me that you can’t have people leave hungry and so, like her, I tend to cook more than what is required.
But at a cookout, there are always those guests who don’t want to seem rude by eating too much. That’s fine, I can dig manners, but I need the food gone. Some beer can stay, but the food has to go. So I’m inviting the entire offensive line.
Offensive lines do things as a team, so I felt to single any individual player out would be insensitive. This is an inclusive cookout so I want the entire starting line to come. Heck, have the backups come along as well. And because I’m in a generous mood, I’ll even invite Bob Wylie. Having him come rolling up in his Maserati would give the neighbors something to talk about for sure. And don’t worry Bob, there will be no stretching required at this cookout, just bring your appetite and we’ll take care of the rest.
Well, that’s it. My cookout is over and, like you, I’m waiting for the real fireworks to start when the 2019 Cleveland Browns run out onto the field at First Energy Stadium to play the Tennessee Titans. It won’t be long now and it won’t surprise me at all if my cookout guests are also some of the key reasons why we are all so excited for the season to get underway.
Now it’s your turn. If you could have a Fourth of July cookout with three members of the Cleveland Browns who would you choose and why. Enjoy your Fourth of July everybody and Happy Birthday America!
