Down Goes Brown! Down Goes Brown!

Down Goes BrownDown Goes Brown isn't just the handle of a great Maple Leaf blogger I borrow gems from periodically, it's also a great call by Joe Bowen back in 1992 on The Fan 1430. Sylvain Lefebvre took on Rob Brown and "Down goes Brown! Down goes Brown!" was born.

Here's the video with that great audio.

A previous entry about Down Goes Brown (the blogger, not the Bowen call) currently ranks #21 when you Google Down Goes Brown.

If I played this right, this entry will now be found in the top five. Down Goes Down Goes Brown!

Don't be like that. At least I link to you in the first line with the heaven-sent anchor text "great Maple Leaf blogger".

I should send you an invoice.

I wouldn't go to war with Down Goes Brown, he's funnier than I am.

I just want to be first page in Google for his handle.

Down Goes Brown!

I am kind of proud that if you type "down goes" into the google homepage, it now auto-fills "brown" as the first result, ahead of "frazier".

Suck it, Ali.

You've got the first two spots in Google (is that legal?) then it's your Facebook, then it's your Twitter.

Then it's me.

Well, looks like the Toronto Mike "top five" goal was reach in one day. My hat is off.

Seriously DGB, you're a welcome addition to the blogosphere.

As a founding father, I'm always looking for interesting, frequently updated blogs. There are surprisingly few.

There are rumours on the internets that you're an Ottawa guy. I've been sitting on this story, because I know it could be devastating to your loyal Leaf fan following. But the people deserve to know the truth.

Is Down Goes Brown an Ottawatian?

"Is Down Goes Brown an Ottawatian? He can't be! NOBODY in Ottawa is that smart. Or funny. Funny looking yes Funny no.

Down Goes Brown

Just to be clear: While I was born in Australia (making me the web's greatest Australian hockey blogger), I am a thoroughly 100% Torontonian.

I just happen to be making a very temporary stop in Ottawa. Going on fifteen years or so. But I'm from Toronto. I'll be back any day now.

You better be pulling down 7 figures in Ottawa Down Goes Brown, or it ain't worth it.

Wait until I alert the Barilkosphere.

June 9, 2009 @ 11:59 AM

Down Goes Brown

Odd fact: Nobody in the Barilkosphere actually lives in Toronto.

Strange but true.

My home phone number starts with 416. I swear.

#2 after Wikipedia for Bill Barilko...

Obviously DGB is from Toronto. Check out his site - it's practically a personal shrine to Wendy Clark. Only a Toronto fan could love Clark that much.

DGB might be from Toronto, he's clearly got a good eye for players with all heart, but he's got a 613 number.

That's explosive info!

I'm afraid to Google Down Goes Brown. Will I get stuff like at

I hate sex. Especially Interwebs sex.
