A lot of people complain that kids get trophies just for participation in their local youth league sports. Now there may be a parade for a professional football team if it loses all its games!
ESPN claims that one Cleveland Browns fan is planning to hold a parade if the team goes winless this season. Chris McNeil reached his required fundraising goal of $10,000 when Excedrin contributed $7,683.
McNeil tells ESPN; “Everything has been so negative around the Browns, this would just be a way to have some fun and it’s obviously a shot across the bow to the Browns owner. It’s not celebrating losing. It’s just a way of saying, we’re fans and these aren’t our Browns.”
McNeil’s family has had Browns season tickets for 30 years.
