Lifelong Browns Fan Has Unique Wish for Funeral
- Updated: July 9, 2013
As a Mets and Jets fan, I bitch a lot. It’s in our DNA or something. That said, there are certainly American cities whose sports fans have it far worse in terms of the plight of their professional franchises. And when making the “woe is me” argument, few have more ammunition than the devoted loyalists of Cleveland. Forget about the Cavs and the Tribe for a moment. The Dawg Pound and their crew engender a special sense of endearment. They take a licking and keep on ticking. The Brownies have been around for quite some time now and there is no NFL Championship to point to…but there is plenty of pain. How much you ask? Enough for one lifelong fan to have this unique and humorous request appear in his obituary:
Scott, for the love it appears you poured into the franchise, they should grant your wish. Perhaps it will turn things around.
