Yesterday, Sports on Earth’s Will Leitch was WFNY’s guest at the Browns game. He is in town as part of his “Leitch Across America” series. Today, the first part of his series on Cleveland is up.
“The last Cleveland championship was in 1964, by the Browns two years before the Super Bowl began, which means no one has any recollection or proof it ever happened,” writes Leitch. “Cleveland sports exist to make you unhappy. Not furious — the wailing, the gnashing of teeth, the rending of garments. They can’t work you up like that anymore. It’s just a general, vague, unceasing unhappiness. They’re a dull ache that never goes away; they’re a rash that won’t fade.”
We look forward to reading more about Will’s first stay in Cleveland, and the sports teams we care so much about.
