OT: Browns fan's last request

Submitted by AFMich on July 8th, 2013 at 7:25 PM

I know we have many folks from Cleveland on this board. Thought this was a funny story and remember many a Browns fan's lamenting their fandom on this site.


Oh, Browns. You even managed to get beat by the deceased.

Interesting question. Let's marshall the evidence:

Lions: Half a century of almost continuous suckage

Browns: A few decades of almost continuous heartbreak, followed by disappearance and a decade of suckage

Lions: Have the Tigers, who've had a bit of success recently, and a couple championships in the past 50 years

Browns: Have the Tribe, who... yeah...

Lions: Have the city of Detroit

Tribe: Have the city of Cleveland, but the state of Ohio.

VERDICT: Browns, in a landslide.

Thanks! I tried the latter for a while, until I was informed that the Creatures Of Walmart are protected species under state and federal murder laws. So I reluctantly hit the trail and did about 2000 miles of the AT between peyote episodes and run-ins with the local yeti population.

Cubs fans piss me off more than any other fan base on this subject. Did the Blackhawks just recently win two Stanley cups? Did you have the 85 Bears?? Did you have MICHAEL FUCKING JORDAN!??

Shut up Cubs fans. We have had NOTHING in any sport since Jim Brown and it wasn't even a super bowl. In the last year I just watched the Ravens and LeFuck win their second championships.

I grew up a Lions fan (father was season ticket holder) and went to virtually all the games from 1968 to 1981. Then I moved to Cleveland in 1987 and now for the last 4 years I've been a Brown's season ticket holder.

When it comes to being a connoisseur of shitty football I believe I have no equal.

I respect Browns fans, but at the same time I don't get how someone can be so devoted to an expansion team.  I prefer a team with a rich history, like the Carolina Panthers, or Jacksonville Jaguars.
