    If someone bid that on the Price is Right, I would assume they went over.

    Even if it came with a sectional sofa and a trip to Puerta Vallarta?

    Weekend trip or weeklong trip?
    Is there a cruise attached?

    You upped the ante. Now I'm really torn. I guess it's time to turn to the audience.

    Is it the showcase showdown? If it is, always pass on the first one. The second one is the one with the wave runner.

    This is true, they should have passed on the Browns in hopes for a better team and maybe a dirt bike.

    Maybe $1 billion isn't too far fetched.

    I realize the article is a little dated but I can only imagine that those numbers have done up since then.

    Those teams all have tradition and history and actually winning things, maybe with the exception of the Texans, what do the Browns have?
