It takes time and commitment to earn the distinction of "saddest Browns fans on the street," but three men strolling the sidewalks of New York have accomplished that goal. 

Twitter user Matt Hart (h/t Tom Ley of Deadspin) spotted a triad of misery walking through downtown New York on Thursday, ostensibly planning to attend the NFL draft later in the evening.

How did they decide to dress for this most auspicious event? What do three kings from Cleveland wear after wandering the deserts of disappointment for decades on end? 

Well, they put on the bustiest jerseys of Browns past, perhaps hoping against hope that by cloaking themselves in irony, they might change their franchise's rotten luck.

Indeed, there's a twisted logic in wearing Tim Couch, Charlie Frye and Brady Quinn jerseys to the NFL draft. Perhaps they believe that by cramming so much awfulness into one small space, the negative energy might morph into something good (like crushing carbon into diamond). 

Or perhaps it's even weirder. Maybe by putting that much bust into one area, they hope to rip a hole in the space-time continuum and be transported to an alternate reality where Cleveland is beautiful and the Browns' biggest complaint is finding enough healthy receivers for their five-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback, Johnny Manziel.

We may never know their intentions, but rest assured: This many bust jerseys in such tight quarters is dangerous, bold and possibly against fire code.
