Disaster in Cleveland

The mistake on the lake has reared its ugly head once again. This time in the form of one of the worst major sports franchise's in America.

If you were one of the unfortunate ones to waste any of your time watching Monday Night Football tonight, you know what I am talking about. The Browns lost at home 16-0 to the Ravens, the team that bolted Cleveland for Baltimore many years ago. Cleveland has lost nine straight home games since 2008.

For 60 quarters this year, the Browns offense has not scored a touchdown. Tonight, they kept the inept streak in tack.

This is a team in total disarray. However, I will give the defense some credit: they play hard and do not give up, despite spending more time on the field than their offensive counterparts and knowing that they have to both keep the other team from scoring and score points themselves.

The Browns are one of a handful of teams never to have played in a Super Bowl. This organization is not going to get them there. They can't draft. They cannot put together a game plan. They cannot execute. This offense might be the worst offense in the history of the NFL.

As a life long Browns fan, I watch only out of duty. Why anyone pays a single dollar for a ticket is beyond me. It is bad enough watching them play in the comforts of your home on a wide screen HD TV, but to watch this team perform live... All I can say, alcohol must play some role.

It is rather embarrassing to claim the Browns as your team. I did not even wear any of my ten or twelve Browns shirts or sweatshirts. This is misery personified.
