Fred was a member at the gym I work at. And when the team got their rings for the championship, he brought his to the gym. He gave it to the staff and said he’d pick it up when he was finished with his workout.

Fred was exactly who you thought he’d be. He was at the gym Monday afternoon... wearing an orange Browns shirt with the Browns hat to match. He stopped and talked to me about the Browns and that first game. He was looking forward to seeing the team get it together.

I saw him roughly 3x a week for the last 4yrs. He would always talk to those who wanted to bend his ear, even on his personal time.

Man I'm still heartbroken about this. So many iconic phrases and moments over the years. Fred and AC have been calling games together since I've become a fan of the team so this is a tough one.

I would love nothing more than to be able to get a hold of Fred and AC's call of game 7. We've obviously all seen the 'GOOD NIGHT OAKLAND' moment, but i wish i could relive the entire game with them because the ups and downs were just insane.

How can we make this happen? It's gotta exist somewhere.

It exists, but apparently the full thing will never see the light of day because the Cavs did not get permission from the NBA to create that “home commentary” track, let alone distribute it.
