eBay Item of the Day: Dawg Pound Mike's 'Charlie's Fryes' Costume




I don't particularly like Dawg Pound Mike. I disagree with just about everything he's done and said in recent memory, including but not limited to his skeezy search for half-naked Browns fans willing to send him pictures.

However, Dawg Pound Mike is an undeniable part of Cleveland Browns history, even if many other fans would like very much to deny that very fact. Which is why his lady pal's eBay auctions are of particular interest. She's (or he, under her name) is unloading scores of Cleveland Browns memorabilia, including the famous "Charlie's Fryes" outfit Mike used to wear to games. You know the one:


No one's bid on it yet, not that anyone should, but it's there, as is this Bernie Kosar candybar, which is something I would actually want even though it looks like it was stored in the pocket of Mike's sweatpants for the last twenty years.

Go crazy, kids. Help fund whatever misguided venture Dawg Pound Mike is embarking on next. I'm guessing MAR Marketing just isn't doing it for Mike's wallet these days.
