Bill Livingston talks about the impact of Lebron & Johnny

 

The long time Sportswriter from the Cleveland Plain Dealer, says the Manziel circus was a much bigger deal than Lebron's return.

Bill Livingston: "It was mass interviews and hysteria... I was at a grade school with children screaming in their charming soprano voices as 3rd graders when the Browns had a community service appearance. And my assignment was to talk to Manziel and write a column about he was going to throw the first pitch at the Indians game that night... It was a 2 and a half hour rain delay and he never threw a pitch, but he did show up and went out on the field and made his money counting gesture. To the about 10,000 fans who remained, he got a roaring approval...  It's going to be crazy. It's going to be bigger than Lebron when he came here I think, because the Cavs were off the charts and out of the consciousness. And the Browns are never out of the consciousness."
