Picking on Cleveland Browns fans for their spelling seems like, oh, taking Tiny Tim’s cane or stepping on Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree … enough is enough, you know? Still, CBS cameras caught a Browns fan trying to rally the team via a sign that read “Cleveveland.”
You know what? Let’s be charitable and say it was some kind of play on “Christmas Eve.” Because the other option was that the sign creator just kind of lost their way halfway through the project, which … well, that sounds pretty Cleveland too.
Say what you will about “Cleveveland,” at least it’s not GPODAWUND, from earlier this year:
(Translation: DAWG POUND.)
And at least it’s right-side-up, unlike this sign from 2013:
And at least Cleveland won, getting a gift from the San Diego Chargers in the form of two failed field goal tries that led to a 20-17 victory, the Browns’ first of the season.
Love ya, Cleveland Browns fans. Evevery single one of you.
