Dear Abby: Cleveland Sports Are Driving My Son to Beat the Dog

Posted By on Mon, Apr 30, 2012 at 9:55 AM

Think the day-in and day-out beatdowns of being a Cleveland sports fan don't have real consequences? Check out this letter from "A Good Dad in Cleveland" to Dear Abby.

See, his son loves sports, but he also beats the dog. Seems he has problems dealing with disappointment, and the dog is on the butt-end of Little Junior's anger when his teams don't win. And he'll hate Pops if he sends him to counseling, and they can't get rid of the dog. What the hell should this guy do?

First of all, stop writing letters to Dear Abby. That's a good start.

Second, if the perpetual disappointment of being a Cleveland sports fan really caused folks to beat dogs, there would not be a single dog alive in all of Cuyahoga County, so there's probably something else going on. That's just our expert opinion, but we're not Abby, so what do we know?

Hopefully someone kept the dog far far away from Junior when the Browns drafter John Hughes this weekend.

Abby's response, which basically mirrors ours, can be found here.
