The Cleveland Browns have long been the laughing stock of sports. In a town mired with sports misery, that’s hard to accomplish. Things finally seemed to be going well for the franchise, though. After a much-scrutinized trade sent prized running back Trent Richardson to Indianapolis, the Browns turned around and won three straight games while Richardson struggled with the Colts. Jordan Cameron has been the delight of many a fantasy owner, and the tight end’s break out campaign has some calling him the brightest young sports star in Cleveland. Heck, they even benched quarterback Brandon Weeden for a guy who used to be Tom Brady‘s backup in Brian Hoyer. Unfortunately, all good things come to an end, and it happens much quicker in Cleveland than anywhere else. Hoyer is now out for the season with a torn ACL, Cameron is fading a bit over the middle of the season, and that three game win streak was followed by three straight losses to put the Browns at 3-5 at the NFL’s halfway point. That’s why it should be no surprise if the Browns find something wrong with their baby: a brand new, state-of-the-art practice facility. Wait, what? They did find something wrong with it? Really? Yup. Apparently the decorators thought it would be a great idea to plaster the walls of the entire facility with motivational and inspirational quotes. It’s actually a terrific idea, or at least it was — until they got nearly all the quotes wrong. Among some of the misquoted masterpieces: Abraham Lincoln (pictured above), Mother Teresa, and Red Auerbach. Credit Cleveland for trying to do something right, but as Chris Berman, Mike Ditka, Keyshawn Johnson, Chris Carter and Tom Jackson would say: C’mon, man! Photo of the Night Nice try, Will.
