The DEFEND Cleveland Show

Browns and Jaguars—Weeden, the Fodder of Loss—Loss, the Great Anti-hero

I felt, tenderly, a love for Weeden at the onset of this game—as much inebriated as it was an intimate feeling. Think true spring fever, standing in a field feverishly reviving green yet only and sparsely crowded by a dander left from winter death, the Boss and I old, friendly now. Absence indeed making the heart grow fonder, we fought and with sour faces but look where it got us, death and rebirth, universally we were meant to be together if only in humor.

And then he fucked me. So hard, so malicious, so unkind. And, like he knew career as a fleeting concept, he put every bad mod in one game at such an infantilized measure of time. Pondering the great concepts now we wonder, is it good to be the best at being bad? What are the signs of the birth of an anti-hero? Is it the death of the hero or the silent choking, in this case exhibitionist flogging, of the expectations of heroism?

This ponderance is imitable in infinite intimations—of life, of earth, of self: baptism, disavowal, rebirth, imbalance, belief in the dying outweighing belief in the living by sheer volume. Are Death and Loss where the best beliefs are born? What good is belief in a god who shows no belief in you?
