Finally, Browns fans have something to celebrate

New, comment

No so much in San Diego, which is the new Cleveland.

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

SAN DIEGO IS THE NEW CLEVELAND: The Cavs snapped a 52-title drought for the city of Cleveland. Guess which city now has the dubious honor of the longest period since its last major pro sports team won a championship. No pressure, Philip Rivers.

BROWNS FANS HAVE SOMETHING TO BE HAPPY ABOUT: It's a big moment for Cleveland sports! The Cleveland Cavaliers have ended the city's 52-year streak and become the first team in NBA history to overcome a 3-1 deficit. Browns fans are loving it.

But he's not going to do that because he doesn't want to get beat up on sports talk radio. Really. His team also traded up to draft a kicker in the second round, so that's probably another reason. Lotta stupid in Tampa Bay right now.
