Here is the long-awaited (since yesterday) gif-less sports and politics DBD! First, I present to you:
The year was 1995. Netscape Navigator was the most-used Internet browser. “Toy Story” was the top grossing movie. “Friends” had just started its 10-season run as a sitcom mainstay. Foo Fighters released their first of many epic albums.
In the National Football League, the Cleveland Browns entered the fall of ’95 as an AFC contender and exited it in the most nightmarish way possible … with the stunning announcement that the team would move to Baltimore. While Baltimore inherited a franchise that would eventually deliver a Lombardi Trophy, Cleveland fans are left to ponder “what if …” Coach Bill Belichick had amassed a talented staff, many of whom were no-names in the mid-90s, but became the backbone of many teams’ front offices and coaching staffs in the years to come.
Modell owned the Browns from 1961 to 1995, a period that saw them win their last NFL Championship in 1964. But Modell is probably best remembered by Browns fans for his controversial decision to move the team to Baltimore in 1996 and rename them the Ravens. The period remains one of the darkest chapters in the city's sports history.
Now, for some politics, let's go to Chicago, home of the not-so-golden Bears.
In 1910, Chicago Tribune reported on bribery that eventually removed William Lorimer from Senate and led to 17th Amendment
Alright, there you have your sports and politics.
