For me, watching Cleveland Cavaliers fans turn as angry as they did during “The Decision” and being as wounded as they were for the next 12 months was something that always brought a snicker out of me. They burned jerseys, cursed the man’s name, talked bad about his mama and generally did things that their own mothers wouldn’t approve of.
So when my Jacksonville Jaguars took on the Cleveland Browns in Cleveland this past Sunday, who knew I’d get one more snicker out of that fateful day back on July 8th, 2010? It came, courtesy of the bowling-ball phenom that is Maurice Jones-Drew.
