    In the early 90's, the Bengals frustrated me already and I decided to adopt a team. I thought long and hard about it and chose the Browns. Bill Belichick was their head coach at the time. Just when I started to feel good about my decision to call the Browns my own, they bolted for Baltimore. I was officially a fan without a team for a few years. I felt lost and betrayed. 1999 rolls around and I've got my beloved Browns back and I'm happy as can be. Little did I know the pain that would follow for the next 18 seasons. Despite this, I don't quit and I'm the eternal optimist for the Browns. I keep telling myself that when the Browns return to glory, it'll all be worth it. I'm not jumping off this bus now just when things will start turning around. See what I did there? Eternal optimism.
    I have been a Browns and Indians fan my whole life.

    The Kosar years were fun. Made it to 3 AFC Championships in a 4 year span. Unfortunately couldn't beat the Broncos.

    The Indians in the mid 90's and again now.

    Outside of that. It's pretty tough being a Cleveland fan, but I never give up hope.

    I was a big Cleveland Barons and Crusaders fan when we had a hockey team. Now I cheer for the Blackhawks.

    I'm not an NBA fan so I don't really pay attention to the Cavs.

    Redskins
    The local high school team in the town I grew up in had the exact same uniforms (except for the logo). That's all it took for me.

    What about people in Cincy who are fans of teams other than Pittsburgh... You salty about them too?
    No I don't care who you root for. I just think that's kind of weak.

I haven't been able to be a fan of the Colts because of their disloyalty to Baltimore. I like Peyton Manning but I never had interest in watching them because of their history.

    Imagine after losing your team like that, being willing to do that to another city. I hate the Steelers because I am a Browns fan (that's football), but even worse are my feelings towards the Ravens (that's personal).

    And as long as BB is at New England I will hate them too.

    Bears. Three generations of fans in my family. It was great for the first four years of my life. Then 1987 arrived.
