Cleveland Browns ‘Perfect Season’ parade draws 3,000 people in bitter cold temperatures

 

They even crowned a queen.

Fans of the Cleveland Browns found humor (?), maybe solace in attending and participating in the Cleveland Browns Perfect Season Parade. The Browns went 0-16 this season — a dismal performance at a franchise that’s routinely underperformed.

Mother Nature had some fun with Cleveland, too. The air temperature was forecasted to be 0 degrees when the parade kicked off. The wind chill was forecasted to be -16. Put them together and what do you get? 0-16.

A Cleveland.com reporter using Facebook Live said there was a group of people protesting the parade.

People decorated floats to march in the parade that circled the stadium the Browns play in.

At one point in the Cleveland.com broadcast, fans could be heard chanting “0…16.”

The parade was sponsored by FarmersOnly.com and Excedrin (yes, the headache medicine).

It should be noted that the parade organizers wanted fans to bring nonperishable items for the local food bank.

The Browns organization released a statement apologizing to fans: “We greatly appreciate the passion of all our fans and we apologize to them for not making 2017 an enjoyable season. We certainly hear them and understand their frustration. Obviously, we want the same thing as our fans; winning results. We are committed to doing everything we can to improve and build them the type of team they most certainly deserve.”

Better luck next year, Cleveland?

Research is key to fighting cancer

Research is the most important aspect of the American Cancer Society. Since 1946, the American Cancer Society has helped to make nearly every major cancer research breakthrough.

Right now in Pittsburgh, the American Cancer Society has provided more than $4.5 million in research grants. So the next cancer breakthrough could happen in the City of Champions!

Help fund research and programs for cancer patients and families by making a donation to my Cherry Pickers team at the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Greater Cranberry Township.

Learn more about the American Cancer Society research program.

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Greater Cranberry Township is planned for July 22 at North Boundary Park in Cranberry. Kickoff is at 10 a.m. Listed below are highlights for when you might want to stop by!

Thank you for reading this and helping to create a world with less cancer.

Cancer knows no boundaries

It’s simple: Cancer can affect everyone across the world.

Research done in Canada or England or Spain or the United States helps fight the global war on cancer.

In the United States, the American Cancer Society has worked for more than 100 years to make fighting cancer a priority. Together, with help of sister network the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, cancer is a priority.

But there’s so much more to do. Join the fight by donating and getting involved.
