Is there a changing of the guard in the AFC North? Even better: could the throne belong to the BROWNS?????? (Little Game of Thrones ref even though I’ve never seen an episode).

Get Lucky Sometimes:

47. “Swingin’” – Echo (1999) Tom has said that he ad-libbed “Swingin’” on the spot, hitting that D-Am-G-D progression on his guitar and then singing the first words that came to his mind as the band joined in.
