OK, Cleveland Browns fans. Clear your calendars for the afternoon of Saturday, Jan. 6.
One forward-thinking — and practical — Browns fan took the liberty of getting permits from the city for a parade in celebration of the team’s 2017-18 season. And no, he’s not painfully optimistic.
The proposed parade would be in celebration of the Browns going winless this season, a real possibility as they sit at 0-9. And according to the fan’s Twitter timeline, it was a relatively quick process.
Chris McNeil started a GoFundMe for $3,000 to make the parade happen. He says the $3,000 will pay for security, restrooms, medical personnel and other costs. McNeil started a similar campaign in 2016 in which he raised $10,591 which the Browns matched when they beat the San Diego Chargers in the final game of the season and as donated to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.
All proceeds will once again be donated to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank if the Browns win a game this season.
Don’t get the floats ready just yet, however, as four of the Browns’ remaining seven opponents also have losing records.
