Fan View: Best Win Since the Return

2-11? What, Me Worry? The Browns knocked off the hated Steelers, and Jeff B. is one happy fan.

I honestly can't describe how I feel right now. After all the frustration, the endless stream of smack I've taken from my Steeler friends, the amount of Pittsburgh fan hollering I've endured in bars, I can't believe this.

The Browns. Our favorite team. They just:

*Beat the defending Super Bowl Champs at home

*Likely kept them out of the postseason

I do not care what happens the rest of the season.

Let me repeat.

I

DON'T

CARE

WHAT

HAPPENS

Are the Browns 2-11? They sure seem like 13-0 to me.

I WAS ABLE TO TEXT SMACK TALK TO MY STEELER FRIENDS AND HAVE IT MEAN SOMETHING.

It was pretty simple smack talk too.

"How did that game feel?"

That's all I said.

Didn't get a response for the most part. Not too surprised actually.

The DJ fired up a pretty anti Pittsburgh song directly after the game.

Yes, he's a Browns fan.

You should have seen the faces of the Black and Gold fans in attendance who have been used to singing a (usually off key) rendition of "Here We Go Steelers" at the top of their lungs after nearly every Pittsburgh-Cleveland game since the return.

Not tonight, Steeler fan.

Tonight most every fan in Browns nation is getting their holiday football wish.

The wish? That Cleveland puts a major hurting on your hopes and dreams for football in January.

I know the Browns are still a bad football team with major issues all over the place.

I know the Browns are heading for another top 5, likely top 3 draft pick, again.

I know the Browns are a long way from contention.

Except tonight, I don't know anything.

Tonight they put a major hurt on a rival that has made them personal doormats this decade.

Tonight Browns football was fun again.

Tonight is all that matters to me.

Browns fans, I ask you the same question I posed to my Steeler buddies via text:

"How did that game feel?"

I'm betting that it was pretty damn sweet for you.

Me too.
