I'm honestly beginning to believe there is some sort of "curse" on Cleveland and Ohio in general sports teams. Just in 2007 alone:
The Cavs bow out in the playoffs
The Tribe blows a great lead in the ALCS
The Bucks get their butts kicked at home by an unranked team
The Browns, with a big lead, manage to blow it

To be an Ohio/Cleveland sports fan, you MUST have tough skin to be able to take all the ribbing that non fans throw at us.

Just ONCE, I'd love to be the one "celebrating" the big victory. . .

Oh well, The Bucks at 10-1 heading up north
The Browns are 5-4. . .guess it could be worse. . .

But, c'mon enough is enough of the "curse", someone PLEASE take it off :P :-P :razz:

This is typically what they say in these parts right before it gets worse. :lol:

The Bucks won in 2002.

So, really, I can die a happy Buckeye fan knowing I saw one championship. Anything else from here on out is gravy.

But, I feel ya on the C-Town teams. I want a World Series trophy or go to a Super Bowl and win the Lombardi Trophy in the worst way and to win it all.

Yeah, Im sure none of them rooted for MJ and the Bulls in the 90's..or the Bears in '85.

Hell, knowing Cubs Fans, 1/2 of them probably rooted for the White Sox in '05.
