And so we say goodbye to another dreadful season for the Cleveland Browns…
Although, while the sadistic practice of watching the Browns every Sunday is something we won’t have to endure again for another nine months, part of us is going to miss it. After all, what else can provide us with an excuse to drink and drink and then drink some more? Nothing compares. It’s a miserable life as a Browns fan, but it’s the life that we either chose for ourselves or that was instilled in us at an early age. They’re a part of us and unfortunately our livers have no way of freeing themselves from this burden.
With that said, it’s time for change… again.
The Browns fired Pat Shurmur AND Tom Heckert on Monday leaving the Browns with a glaring hole at the head coach and GM positions. Who they’ll hire is anyone’s best guess. We’ve heard all the names and rumors that have been swirling around for weeks and we’ll cover those at a later date.
Right now though is a time to remember the one and only Pat Shurmur. In his two seasons as the main man for the Browns, he led us to a miserable 9 wins (how he won that many is beyond my comprehension), made a number of mind boggling decisions, and provided us with enough press conference fodder to keep us all amused for years to come.
Oh Pat… I think we’re going to miss you… kinda. With that said, This week’s Wordless Wednesday, which admittedly has been preceded by a number of words, is an ode to the man, the myth, and the legend… Pat Shurmur.
