But what really pisses me off is the so-called "professional sports teams" in this state.
The Cleveland Browns? Moved to Baltimore by a greedy owner, then replaced with a laughable franchise seemingly run by Jerry Lewis on crack. I'm betting by the time the Browns finally reach their first Super Bowl, we'll all have flying cars and our Martian masters will have us digging for ammonia to feed them. Meanwhile, of course, the Baltimore Ravens won a Super Bowl.
The Cincinnati Bengals? Yeah, they've made a couple of Super Bowls ... back when NFL Films was doing their work in black and white. Nowadays, the only thing they're known for is their excellent Felon Catch and Release program.
The Reds? They haven't won anything in about, what, twenty years? You can't tell the players without a scorecard. Even with a scorecard, you need a pronunciation guide. Their idea of a 'budding star' is a kid who hit .240 on the sandlot and fashioned a glove out of newspaper.
The Indians? Had their chance. Came close ... until they unloaded Manny Ramirez for $300 and a pack of Double Bubble. Now woefully inadequate, with an ERA slightly higher than the Dow Jones Average.
The Columbus Blue Jackets? Please. After nine years in the NHL, they finally made the playoffs, only to get spanked so badly by the Red Wings in a four-game sweep so embarrassing the entire team is undergoing therapy.
And now the Cleveland Cavaliers. Owning the best regular season record in the NBA, they're going to lose to the Orlando Magic while they stand around and scratch their nuts, not even giving their fans the satisfaction of being crushed by the L.A. Lakers in the finals.
It's enough to make me bitter, I tell ya.
Is it too much to ask to have just ONE FUCKING CHAMPIONSHIP delivered by ONE FUCKING PROFESSIONAL TEAM in this goddam state?
I feel your pain, I'm an old Cleveland boy and grew up on the lake. I was there for the "fumble" the"drive", and when Model sneaked his sorry ass out of town in the middle of the night. But I did miss nickel beer night.

You're not expecting sympathy from me, are you?

You're lucky. Washington state citizens voted down new stadiums for their teams a number of times, and the government said, "ah, fuck them, we'll do it anyway." Then the NBA team left town anyway.

I could tell you whose fault it is, but as the former King you should already know the answer.

It may be that just Ohisians are cursed. I was born in Mansfield and raised in Athens. Graduate of The Ohio State University. Been a Brown's fan all my life.

I now live in the middle of Steeler's country....and have to listen to all that. And I really have no good comeback to any of it.

At least living in the state, you are surrounded of people who can share your pain.

It could be worse.

You could be in Tennessee.

Any state that sits that close to Indiana is bound to be depressing.

Ohio could be worse. It could be located next to Illinois.

Look on the bright side.

If Ohio had ONE thing that didn't suck, there would be less incentive to drink.

Could you imagine how bad Ohio would really suck if you didn't have a reason to drink?
