Cleveland Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens watches during the first half in the regular-season opener against the Tennessee Titans in Cleveland on Sunday, September 8, 2019.

CLEVELAND — "You Said It" is a reader participation column based on the premise that if you don't laugh about Cleveland sports you'll cry.

And that if you do laugh about Cleveland sports, you might still end up crying. But at least friends and family will like being around you more. 


Bud: Odell Beckham supposedly wore a $2 million watch in warmups Monday. How is it he keeps getting talked about despite this latest attempt to keep a low profile? — Tim, C-Town.

Well, in his defense he thought the pocket square and Aubercy Diamond loafers would look out of place without it.

Bud: Is it true Freddie Kitchens once turned gold into lead? — Michael Sarro.

Sorry, but the standard in Cleveland sports for declaring someone a success or failure is halfway through their third game. Stand down, sir.

Bud: Tell the truth, have you ever seen Charlie Manuel and Freddie Kitchens in the same room? — Vince G., Cincinnati.

If they were, I’m guessing it wasn’t a casting call for 'Project Runway.'

Bud: There's a gleam, men! — Marty.

I’m afraid that was just the glare off Odell Beckham’s visor.

Bud: When the Browns play the Ravens on Sep. 29th, what's the over/under for how many Ravens players have to be on IR for the Browns to have a chance? — East Side Eddie.

Let's hold off on that. Beating the Dolphins and Arizona makes an already small sample size less impressive than a You Said It contributor’s little black book.

Bud: Rumor has it you’ve coined a new term for ‘mulligans.’ While on the links you refer to them as ‘Shaw Shank Exemptions’? — Jim Corrigan, Fairview Park.

 I'm better known for popularizing the word "Fore."

Bud: The Browns allegedly picked the wrong guy and barred him from the stadium indefinitely. Is this the first time they picked the wrong guy? — O. Bill Stone.

You Said it “winners” finally make the cut.
