I’ve had a pretty good year of NFL fandom.
My team, the Carolina Panthers, the most likable team in the history of sports, is off to an 11-0 start — with a real chance of finishing the season undefeated. The Panthers are basically the Golden State Warriors. Just like GSW, nobody can dislike the ‘Thers. Even NBA superstar and Charlotte native Steph Curry thinks the Warriors will lose before the Panthers do.
But not all fanbases get to enjoy the euphoric state that comes with being undefeated. The people of northeast Ohio, for example, have probably seen better days. The God-awful Cleveland Browns lost in embarrassing fashion once again this past Monday, and some Browns fan (or more likely, some Steelers fan) created a beautiful montage of Browns sadness:
Best part of the whole thing is that fan who drunkenly ripped apart his jersey after the Monday night game. I feel you, dude.
If only Johnny Football could save you, but he has been relegated to the bench for drinking on a bye week and lying about it to management. Even Ray Lewis, who, at 25, was indicted for murder, felt compelled to say something about Manziel’s behavior after the Monday night game.
If you are a Browns fan, consider this an open invitation to hop on the Panthers bandwagon. Our city is filled with displaced Ohioans anyway. I can promise you Cam Newton is a whole lot more fun to watch than goddamn Josh McCown and the rest of that terrible team..
