Cleveland.com Did A 'Greatest Cleveland Player Ever' Bracket, And Johnny Manziel Beat Jim Brown In Round 1
If John Scott's admission into the NHL All Star Game and subsequent fame from the result have proven anything it's that there's nothing people love more than to be ironic in complete useless public polls. That's why I am putting this one on Cleveland.com. You have to know your audience. As much as the rest of society loves being contrarian, that's how much Cleveland fans enjoy being self loathing. Once you give Johnny Manziel entry into a 'Greatest Cleveland Players Of All Time' tournament you have already made a full blown mockery of your bracket, and you should expect the fans to act accordingly. Especially since Browns fans are probably tired of talking about Jim Brown considering he's the only player they get to bring up when referencing "the good old days".
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that Johnny Manziel is set to win the whole damn thing. I wouldn't have said that yesterday, but after LeBron unfollowed the Cavaliers on Twitter last night he's ripe for a Final Four upset. Hell, even if he loses in round two he'll still go down as the first 16 seed in history to topple a 1 seed. That's got to count for something, right? I know it counts as the biggest accomplishment of Johnny Football's career. Well, assuming that there is no tournament for 'Least Amount Of Fucks Given', because they wouldn't even need to play the games before letting him cut down those nets.
