Video: Mike Polk is talking to the Browns again

Mike Polk apparently didn’t think the Browns got beat badly enough yesterday. He decided to beat them up some more. I’d say they earned it.

This is not to insult Mike, but it wasn’t even funny as much as it was poignant there in the middle of the video. The part about people only being here a few years other than the fans? Yeah.

Video: Angry Browns Fan goes all in on Davone Bess

I’m convinced (with no real empirical evidence) that Cleveland sports fans have more fun with less than any other city with professional sports teams. How else do you explain the continued fun of Mike Polk videos like The Factory of Sadness, and Ryan Pontbriand jerseys? Now, the modern age brings us Angry Browns Fan. Even as the team disappoints more often than not, things like this make it at least a little bit better.

If you want to try to be included in next week’s make sure you talk about the Ravens game while tagging #angrybrownsfan on twitter. Of course, we might not need to wait that long for a new video if the Browns decide to trade Josh Gordon or Jordan Cameron this week.

Mike Polk blasts Browns coaching search with (tragic) comedy

See if you can laugh through your tears with Mike Polk.

It only seems fitting to make this the related post.

“I’ll See You Sunday”

In the brilliance of his now viral video ranting after a Browns loss in Houston, comedian Mike Polk ends said rant with the phrase “I’ll see you Sunday.”

No matter what part of his rant you thought was funniest, be it the now classic “You are a factory of sadness”, or the fact that Polk was wearing a Pontbriand jersey, every Browns fan I talked to about it identified with this last phrase. No matter what the Browns do as a franchise, we just can’t stay away.

The idea of course, is that one day everything will be better. One year we are going to show up to the game and the team will start winning. We will fall in love with players like we did back in the ’80s, or ’60s or ’50s. We will have nicknames for our favorites. Teams will once again dread coming to the stadium because they will be in for one long afternoon. The Browns will challenge for the division title. A playoff win. A real shot at going to the Super Bowl. That’s what we want.

That’s the reason this website exists. [Read more...]
