Cleveland has an infamous sports history full of heartbreak. We've lived through "the drive", "the shot", and "the pitch," and those are just the ones we managed to come up with a one-word tag line for.
Heartbreaking sports moments have solicited all sorts of responses from Cleveland fans: tears, anger, and even the hurling of several thousand plastic bottles in the memorable 2001 game against the Jaguars later dubbed "Bottle Gate".
Another result of some of Cleveland's worst sports moments? Embarrassment. The organization has embarrassed itself plenty of times, as have the fans (case in point: Bottle Gate), but the biggest offenders are usually individuals. Whether it's players, ownership, or coaching staff, the Browns have had their share of characters who we're all a bit mortified by.
Following, in no particular order, are eight of the most notorious embarrassments in the Browns organization since 1980. Feel free to pretend you don't know them.
