snatched defeat from the clutches of victory, my husband and I went to the Home Depot. As I stood by while my husband pondered over the intricacies of male plug power cord heads (whatever those are), I overheard the following conversation between two female Home Depot employees as they walked away from the break room:
Home Depot Employee #2: "So the Browns didn't win."
Home Depot Employee #1: "The old Browns won."
Home Depot Employee #2: "But not the Browns."
Home Depot Employee #1: "Of course not! It's the Browns!"
As the Browns fall to 0-3, I wonder when I'll reach that point in the season when I decide it's a waste of time for me to watch. It might be earlier than usual.
It's really, really hard to root for the Browns. Every. Single. Year.
I'm grateful to have the opportunity to sound off on this blog. I just wish I had something positive to say. We did look ok, like an actual football team, at some points during the game. I am impressed with Scott Fujita (which I may address in another post). We did drive down the field more than once. We scored the first touchdown the Pigeons (oops did I say that out loud I meant Ravens) have allowed all season and Peyton Hillis got 140 yards, more than the Ravens usually allow in one game (they only have the 2nd best defense in the NFL right now). In the end, though, it wasn't enough, and the numbers are all going in the wrong column, for the third week in a row. And I really can't stand to hear this is a rebuilding year; I feel like I hear that every year and every year instead of building we get torn down.
So, Browns fans, what do you think? Please sound off in the comments; lemme hear it. What needs to be done so we can win? Do you think we will win at all this year?
