Cleveland Fans Not as Miserable as England Fans... Maybe

Posted By on Fri, Jul 2, 2010 at 8:30 AM

From ESPN's Bill Simmons in his latest column:

Question No. 11: What was the funniest thing you've read about the World Cup this month?

I liked Michael Davies' take on England's demise: "Americans will never completely understand how crap it is, most of the time, to be English. We might have cute accents and be good at cocktail parties. But we are mostly losers." That slayed me. England's fatalistic, self-loathing, S&M-style attitude toward its national team tops Buffalo Bills fans, Minnesota Vikings fans or even Cleveland fans.

Question No. 12: Come on, it can't TOP Cleveland fans — at least say it's dead even, right?

Good point.
