Back in early October, we brought the story of a lovestruck security guard at Browns Stadium who took to Craigslist's Missed Connections section in pursuit of a young lass who caught his eye during a game.
Now, there's more to the story.
I got an email this morning from a woman purporting to be the young lass in question. The original Craigslist post has expired, so the contact info for the anonymous security guard is gone. She would like to get in touch.
Here's what she had to say:
I was searching every website I possibly could to find this security guard that I met at the Browns game on October 3rd. I came across that article you wrote about the guard that posted that add on craigslist about 2 months ago. It was on October 5 that you wrote the article I believe. If you have any possible way that you can get my in touch with him I would so appreciate it! I haven't stopped thinking about him since that day and this is fate that I came across this article. Please help me if you can, hope to hear from you!
Is this real? Will this be the 0.00001% of Craigslist Missed Connections that actually work out?
I'm 90% skeptical. Part of me believes someone from the Browns is trying to find out the security guard's identity so they can discipline him for for trying to find his soul mate. But then there's that 10% that believes this could be the real thing.

I saw the add you posted 2 months ago in an article for 64 and counting...I had no idea you posted something on this website and I'm so sorry it took so long to find you. I know what I gave up that we both would kbow and I remember you. I've been trying to find you too....please contact me if you see this or if anyone knows who that security guard is at the browns stadium
So, if you know either party, let's make this happen people. Let's make a love connection via '64 and Counting, which would pretty much be the highlight of my blogging career.
