It seems like every year I get asked the question (usually from a Steelers fan or someone who doesn’t “get” Browns fans at all) “Why are you a Browns fan?” It is usually paired up with the fact that they haven’t won anything since Lyndon Johnson was President, like we aren’t well aware of that already.
As much as I hate to hear this question every year or so it seems, it is actually a good question to ponder. Why ARE we Browns fans after being disappointed season after season after season? Are we just gluttons for punishment? Do we just not have anything better to do with our time than to put our hearts and souls in to rooting for this team? I have a list of answers and I would love to share them with you.
