20 Things Clevelanders Love to Hate About Cleveland


Last night we posted the question What Do Clevelanders Love to Hate About Cleveland on Facebook- hot damn did we get some heated responses.

First, a clarification: This post was not meant to reflect a "nasty attitude about really cool city," or anything of the sort. We love Cleveland! We know you love Cleveland!

We all love Cleveland!

But Clevelanders also love to harp on Cleveland (and then get pissed at those who harp- c'mon you know it's true). It's all part of what fuels this spirited city.

Without these things that we love to hate, Cleveland wouldn't be, well, Cleveland.

Here are the 20 things Clevelanders love to hate about Cleveland, as compiled by you on social media.
