Get Ready for the Browns' Perfect 0-16 Season Parade


[image-1]Something of a local legend in Cleveland sports circles, McNeil commands an engaged following of Browns, Cavs, Indians and Buckeyes fans. His latest move? This morning, he filed paperwork with the city of Cleveland for a parade in honor of the Browns' inevitable perfect 0-16 season.

Check the Facebook details here.

The parade is being planned for Jan. 7.

Now, of course, we support this endeavor wholeheartedly. This is history! (Note that the 2008 Detroit Lions won their four preseason games. The 2016 Browns didn't! And the three other winless NFL teams from over the years all earned their stripes before the league took on 16-game seasons. The Browns have a shot at glory!)

Bear in mind, too, that there was a widely followed Facebook event for the Indians World Series parade — an event that, sadly, did not come to pass. We don't foresee the same problems with this one.
