Stadium mustard is the best mustard there is — thick and and brown and spicy, with a nice little kick — and it tastes even better in a stadium. Today, Russell and I were up in ice-cold Cleveland Browns Stadium to watch the Browns take on the Steelers, and we had to get some stadium dogs and some crinkle cut fries. The $9.50 price tag put a dent in the wallet, but we were there to root on the Brownies and you just have to eat a dog before you can root for the Dawgs.
As good as the Stadium mustard was, the game itself was even better. The Browns beat the Steelers for the first time since 2009 and one of the few times since Cleveland came back into the NFL in 1999. It was a tough, hard-hitting game in which the Browns forced 8 turnovers, the rhythm of the game was destroyed by constant penalties, and the Browns offense was unable to put the game away despite repeated opportunities. Still, a win is a win is a win, and lately any win over the Steelers is a win worth savoring — with a little mustard, of course.
