Cleveland Browns: First in Our Hearts, Last in the League


1 comment
After a 50-year dry spell with no championship rings, the Cleveland Browns are finally the best at something: being the worst.

Despite "Believe"-Land's die-hard fans and FirstEnergy Stadium being filled to near capacity last year, the Browns 2-8 record has put them last in the NFL. After losing to the Steelers 30-9 Sunday, our boys dropped from 28th to 32rd in the league. 

As the old mantra goes, there's always next year, and Clevelanders aren't the kind to quit on a losing team. Besides the fans filling FirstEnergy to 92 percent capacity, we merry many can be seen filing into our favorite game day bars and cheering on the Dawg Pound regardless of what the stats have to say.

Maybe it's time to focus on what the Browns are good at, like having the cheapest beer in the NFL and the summer's top-selling jerseys. Plus, right now we're Siri's favorite team.
