Get Your Game Face On - Camp's Coming!

The beginning of the Cleveland Browns 2012 training camp should be a cause for hope, optimism and yes, excitement. Really.

Alas, some Cleveland faithful may be too jaded or too tired or too gun-shy to admit being excited. Okay, yes, it’s been a while.

After a loss in 2011, one Browns fan was even heard to cry at the stadium, “You are a factory of sadness!”

Many DawgPounders can relate to Hilary Clinton’s recent Afghanistan remarks. Via Voice of America:

I think if you are masochistic enough to be a Cubs fan, you are drawn to assignments like this, and what I do every day.  

That’s enough! If embracing a losing record can drive one to become Secretary of State, it’s time to get a grip here, people. This doom and gloom must stop before more innocents are forced to seek public office.

One is reminded of Friar Lawrence’s admonition to the downcast Romeo:

Affliction is enamour'd of thy parts,

And thou art wedded to calamity…

O deadly sin! O rude unthankfulness!

Yes, that’s Shakespeare. (Romeo and Juliet, Act III, Scene iii)

The good friar then goes on to list Romeo’s many blessings, reminding him of the myriad ways in which “thou are happy." There’s a lesson here.
