Why would anyone on earth want to go to Cleveland. Their team can't beat anyone, so their fans take on 8 year-old kids:
Fans making major mistakes by the lake
Clevelander who reportedly tackled kid is latest stain on LeBron's old stomping ground
You have to get over it. You have to pull back.
The frustration you have seen as a sports city is well-documented. It's so bad you couldn't even make a movie about it -- nobody is going to sit through a six-hour motion picture.
Still, what took place Sunday after the New York Jets beat your Cleveland Browns in overtime was just not necessary.
Not now, not ever.
Not in Cleveland, not anywhere.
The story about an 8-year-old Jets fan who reportedly was tackled by a drunken Browns fan after the game in Cleveland is downright horrible.
The boy went to the game at Cleveland Browns Stadium in a Jets jersey with his father, who was born in New York. Despite the Jets' 26-20 OT victory, the crowd was just fine inside the stadium, according to the boy's mother.
But once they went outside, things turned ugly.
Reportedly, there was name-calling and food-throwing at the kid outside.
Then out of nowhere, some clown filled with liquid courage ran up behind the kid and tackled him to the ground. The kid was left with a scraped and bruised ankle. Now, the kid never wants to go to a game at Browns Stadium again.
You hate to paint an entire city with a broad brush. But in this case, you just have to. This might be the meanest, dirtiest thing to happen in sports.
