Football humor. From Carl. Yeah, I know...

A Cleveland Browns Player reaches the Pearly Gates and announces his presence to St. Peter, who looks him up in his Big Book. Upon reading the entry for the Football Player, St. Peter invites him to pick up a silk robe and a golden staff and to proceed into Heaven.

A preacher is next in line behind the Cleveland Browns Player and has been watching these proceedings with interest. He announces himself to St. Peter. Upon scanning the preacher's entry in the Big Book, St. Peter furrows his brow and says, "Okay, we'll let you in, but take that cloth robe and wooden staff."

The preacher is astonished and replies, "But I am a man of the cloth. You gave that Football Player a gold staff and a silk robe. Surely I rate higher than a Football Player."

St. Peter responded matter-of-factly: "This is Heaven and up here, we are interested in results. When you preached, people slept. When the Cleveland Browns played, people prayed."

A. 10-6 this year.

B. Why can't these jokes ever be about the Arizona Cardinals or any of the other teams not named the Browns, the teams which really don't matter? :-P

Sort of Echoing Mike's Sentiments
My Bengals' year was much worse, 7-9.

You mean the mighty Bengals of Cincinnati?

Because no one knows teams like the Arizona Cardinals, but everyone knows the historical struggles of the Browns.

...and, for what it's worth, I got the joke from a die-hard Browns friend.

I imagine you could pretty much change it with any major sports team and it'd work. Manchester United football player?
