As with all things Browns, failure is not enough by itself. It can never be simple. It must always be exquisite, and multipronged, and avoidable. The Cody Parkey saga, which saw Cleveland’s new kicker miss three field goals including a potential game-winner as time expired, is a great example.
A funny thing to do as an adult is to explain to someone, out loud, why you care about sports. Why, with so many things to do on this planet, do you spend your free time watching people you don’t know play a game that will have no material affect on your life except, most of the time, to make you angry?

A tragedy was narrowly avoided this weekend when a gigantic, basketball jersey-clad fish, presumably hired as the halftime entertainment for the day’s Derby County-Blackburn match, attacked a poor goalkeeping coach in the middle of its act. Luckily, the man was not seriously harmed.
A few days after Chris Bosh failed a physical because of ongoing complications with blood clotting, Miami Heat president Pat Riley told reporters that Bosh’s Heat career is likely over.
Meet Hunter, the Edmonton Oilers’ new mascot. Clap! Clap for Hunter! Clap for Hunter or he’ll eat you! He feeds on your applause, or he will feed upon your children.
You never want to be in a situation where you need a solar and hand crank-powered weather radio with a flashlight and USB port for charging your phone, but when three different models are on sale in Amazon’s Gold Box, you probably should buy one just in case.
