Pic of the Day: The Moment Cleveland's Fortunes Changed

Posted By on Fri, Jan 14, 2011 at 12:11 PM



Did you feel a wave of optimism flutter over you at 11 a.m. this morning, Cleveland? Because you may remember this time and date as the exact moment when your fortunes turned.

In dueling exhibitions of ceremony, the Cleveland Browns announced Pat Shurmur as the new head coach at 11 and a bunch of people in suits with shovels "broke ground" for the Med Mart at the same time. How could the confluence of two such monumental events not be the harbinger of prosperity and happiness and a signal that these woebegotten groups — Cleveland and the Browns — are finally heading in the right direction.

We are saved, fellow citizens and fans. Let us bury our collective sorrow behind the garage and never look back. Hip, hip, hooray! Three cheers for Cleveland!
