Talk about ironic timing for this trivia question.

According to Twitter user Sam Brenner, when he ripped off the previous page of his Cleveland Browns page-a-day calendar on Monday morning, he saw a trivia question about who Mike Pettine took over for as coach back in 2014.

What makes this ironic is the fact the Browns fired Pettine Sunday night after he went 10-22 in two seasons.

Perhaps the calendar-makers knew Jan. 4, 2016, was "Black Monday" in the NFL. Or perhaps it was just a coincidence. Regardless, any Browns fan who tore off the Jan. 3 page on Monday probably got a (sad) chuckle out of the trivia question of the day.
