The Cleveland Browns Personified

Despite the fact I despise the NFL, I did want to post this story about the hapless Cleveland Browns, because their new team mascot made an appearance during Sunday’s game.

The Cleveland Browns stink and now their stadium does too (or soon will). In the third quarter of Cleveland’s home game with Tampa Bay, a skunk got loose in the stands. It only took till late November, but finally Browns fans were able to witness some excitement inside of First Energy Stadium on a Sunday.

The skunk was apropos; a smelly animal for a shitty football team.

I’m not sure there’s ever been a more fitting professional sports team to house an in-game skunk in their stands. You could make the argument that this is actually a message from the football Gods telling Cleveland to go all-in and change their team nickname to the “Skunks.”

Despite the stinky situation in section 144, the teams have continued to play on while fans in the area wasted little time scattering about.

Honestly, I’m surprised the Cleveland faithful didn’t just sit there and embrace the stink. They’ve done so for seventy-six years now.
