Thank God For Basketball Season Cleveland Fans

I just watched that travesty we call a "football team" here in Cleveland....and I've finally reached that worst of all ailments that any fan can have. It's not anger, heartache, or's "apathy."

My brother, God forgive him, is a Notre Dame fan and he called in the third quarter of yesterday's Browns game to tell me how "Quinn is the savior." I quickly reminded him that it was the third quarter, and although Brady looks great, the Browns will find a way to lose this game. I asked him to call me after the game. He never did.

And while most Browns' fans tossed and turned all night thinking about how angry that they were over yet another in a string of games where they let the opposition off the hook...I slept peacefully. It's not that I won't watch them play (I don't think I've missed a game since I was 13 years old), it's just that I have no expectations AT ALL.  I have a list of reasons why this season has turned into a disaster, but I won't go into detail because it might ruin my calm "apathy" about this team. I will chear them on and hope they win....but I will never trust them enough to have an emotional investment.

The Browns' season is officially over. Time to find out who can play and who must go (including the coaching staff).
