2011 was a brutal year for Cleveland pro sports fans. We watched the Cavs finish second worst in the NBA during the team’s the first season without LeBron James. The Indians fizzled out after a winning spring. And this past weekend, the Browns finished their season 4-12 with a lackluster loss to the Steelers.
