A Toast!

Here's to another three hours of my life that I'll never get back.
Here's to another humiliating defeat at the hands of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Here's to another regime that talks the talk but can't figure out how to walk the walk.
Here's to another head coach with that deer in the headlights gaze.
Here's to another season with no accomplishments and little reason for hope.
Here's to the Cleveland Browns, a team you can always count on.

Is John Cooper coaching the Browns?

I hate them. I hate every single stinking one of them. I hate Savage. I hate Crennel. I hate Northcutt's stupid hands and Frye's stupid brain and Edwards' stupid mouth and Fraley's stupid face.

But most of all, I just hate myself for letting myself get dragged down with this trainwreck of a team year after year after year.

But I might add that there was a shred of optimism among the fan base after last week's win. Like there is after every win.

Now they've lost, and lost badly, and the fans are furious and profess their hatred/apathy toward the team.

You swear you don't care. You swear you hate them all. But you'll watch them next week, hoping that somehow, someway, it will be different.

If you go to a restaurant, get crappy food and crappy service, do you go back? If you go back to that restaurant, week after week, expecting things to be different, who looks like the fool, the restaurant or you?

The Browns are like a dive restaurant that gets the same customers every week, and they always leave bitching about how bad the service is and how awful the food is. But they come back, every week only to be disappointed again.

How many times do we have to run our heads into the wall before we realize this is stupid and we stop doing it?
