Cleveland!  Not the most heartening place.

Their home stadium famously referred to as a "factory of sadness," the Cleveland Browns have yet to establish themselves in contemporary football as anything more than an example of what not to be.

One diehard fan failed to survive this putrid era of Browns football, and made sure the team knew that as he went, he did so with sarcastic mockery in his heart.

"A lifelong Cleveland Browns fan and season ticket holder, he also wrote a song each year and sent it to the Cleveland Browns as well as offering other advice on how to run the team. He respectfully requests six Cleveland Browns pall bearers so the Browns can let him down one last time."
