The Cleveland Browns have finally done it!!!!!!! Yes, that’s right those Cleveland Browns, You know the ones who always win 2 or 3 games a year and just look to have no direction. Well those Brownies have done what only ONE other team in NFL History has been able to accomplish! Lose all 16 games! The only other team to lose all 16 was the 2008 Detroit Lions. After years of trying the Browns were able to not win a single game. They had a ton of chances to win and games that were so close and coulda gone either way, but the Brownies prevailed and found a way to sneak away with the L.
I can sarcastically shit on the Browns all day but on a real note I respect their fans for doing this. So for those of you who may not know this Parade is majority funded by donations from fans. One fan has stepped up as the organizer of the parade his name is Chris McNeil. Chris started this as a joke last year when the Browns were looking as if they would pull off the 0-16 season. This “joke” started to gain a lot of traction as the Browns continued to lose and they even worked it out with the City of Cleveland that if they raised the money for Porter Potties, insurance and security they would have the parade. Unfortunately the Brownies won in week 16 over the then San Diego Chargers. Coincidence the Changers left after losing to the Browns? I’d be ashamed to show my face too! But regardless they had already raised a ton of money for the parade and after some coaches and players donated they gave 50k to the local food drive instead!
Back to this year, As each week passed the Browns continued to stack up the L’s and with each loss Chris McNeil thought more and more about the parade. Here comes Week 17 the Cleveland Browns are taking on the always tough Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers had already clinched their playoff spot decided to bench some of their stars to avoid injury such as Ben Roethlisberger and Le’veon Bell. Once that news got out there was suddenly a glimmer of hope that the Browns will once again win at the very end. I’ll save you the reading and skip the to the important part, Browns down 4 driving with 2min left 4th and 2…
Parade organiser Chris McNeil on watching Corey Coleman drop that ball “It was such a microcosm of the whole season”
Jeeze what a Browns way to lose.
The Browns Perfect Season “0-16” Parade will be held on January 6th at 1 P.M.
McNeil had this to say about this about the parade “The Football Gods are out there,” he said. “I don’t want to even think about next season. God willing, we will never talk about another 0-16 parade ever again after Jan. 6.”
The parade will feature trucks that are frequent at Browns Tailgates, Lots of paper bags, and my personal favorite “float” Custom Tombstones of all the QBs that played for the Browns since moving to Cleveland.
No use crying over spilt milk, the Browns lost every game so you might as well party!
Here’s to the parade for finally giving Browns fans something to cheer about!
