Browns Fan Ticketed for Driving an Unregistered Couch

Meredith has a motorized sofa -- the "Go-Kouch" -- that he usually rides around a municipal parking lot for tailgate parties before games.

But on Nov. 23, he decided to take the couch, a converted riding mower, the extra two blocks to the Browns' stadium for a game with Houston. Meredith said several police officers waved him through. One didn't, issuing him citations for driving an unregistered vehicle and having expired plates.

This is exactly what I've come to expect from football fans, that and going to December games shirtless so we can see their greasepainted chests on TV. It would be nice if a being from a superior civilization came to earth to put an end to this nonsense.

--fleg, wondering if the couch was insured.
