Today I went to a local bar to watch the 0-3 Browns take on the 0-3 Cincinnati Bengals. The bar cleverly billed it as the “Someone’s Gotta Win” party and “The Battle Of The Beatens.” And, of course, someone did win — the Bengals. In front of the appalled Cleveland fans, they crushed the Browns, 31-7.
The Browns have had a lot of lows since they came back to the NFL and began to perfect the art of futility, but this may be the lowest point yet: getting drilled, at home, by a bad Cincinnati team to go 0-4, which means the season is effectively over . . . again. When are Cleveland fans going to stop buying tickets to watch these guys?
