Browns team plane gets stuck in the mud

The Cleveland Browns’ trip to Indianapolis was delayed almost four hours Saturday when the team plane got stuck in the mud at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.

The team was looking for a way to simultaneously annoy their players and create a perfect metaphor for the franchise’s return to Cleveland since 1999.

(Either that or the pilot miscalculated his route to the runway.  Sucks to be that guy.)

Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports that the team had to deplane and wait for a new plane to show up.  The Browns eventually arrived in Indianapolis at 6:30 p.m. — roughly three and a half hours after they planned to get there.

Defensive coordinator Dick Jauron has not yet taken the blame for the error.
