Seems like I watched a lot of Bengals games during those years on the 20 inch TV in my room.
When the Browns and Bengals played each other is was a genuine Battle Royale!
Another "fond" memory from those days is once coming back from a weekend at home to find that all my good Browns fan buddies had taken a Bernie poster and shellacked it to the outside of my door. They did a fabulous job because there was no way to tear it off short of taking down the door and sanding it away. Needless to say, I had Bernie on my door for the rest of the year. If I had a dollar for every time I had to explain that I wasn't a huge Browns fan, I'd have graduated a wealthy man.
You could have taken the opportunity to give "Bernie" some cosmetic surgery to teach those guys a lesson. Some ideas might have included:
Replacing Bernie's hair with Cha-Cha-Cha-Chia hair
Cement shoes for his concrete feet
A handbag to accompany his side-arm motion
A Steelers jersey
The ever-popular black eye, handlebar mustache, monocle, and/or other standard enhancements people use to deface photographs.
