If you are go to be in Cleveland, Ohio in January, then be prepared for a busy downtown area thanks to the Cleveland Browns.
The Cleveland Browns are winless yet again as they prepare for the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. At 0-9, Cleveland could very well see their second consecutive 0-10 start.
Had it not been for a field goal against the then San Diego Chargers, Cleveland was destined to be winless in 2016.
Prior to that game, popular Twitter personality McNeil submitted $25 and the appropriate paperwork to have a perfect season parade to honor the Browns would have been winless season.
If you recall, ESPN Cleveland’s Tony Rizzo then threatened McNeil over the parade last season.
For those that do not know, McNeil’s Twitter account is Reflog_18 and his full name is Chris McNeil. Well, given the 2017 results, the diehard Browns’ season ticket-holder is back at it again.
McNeil announced on Wednesday that his paperwork for the 2017 season’s parade has been filed.
In the tweet everyone can see the papers filled out with the parade’s date set for Saturday, January 6, 2018 around FirstEnergy Stadium. For more information about the parade including information about how all the proceeds will be donated to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank click here.

As interesting as it would be to see that kind of parade on full display, I’d hope everyone is still rooting for the Browns to win a game. Not every week’s game from here on out, just one.
The great thing is that if/when the Browns win, the proceeds will help people in need. If Cleveland were to go winless, resulting in the parade to happen, the national reaction may be the most intriguing.
There has not been a city to have celebrated a winless season through a parade before. I am sure there would be the obvious ripping of the Browns but would more cities follow suit if put in the same situation? Perhaps but that remains to be seen.
In the meantime, looking at how their schedule is playing out, I see two potential winnable games.
The first is against the Chargers but this time it is in Los Angeles, CA on December 3. The other one is Christmas Eve once again, December 24 in Chicago, IL., versus the Chicago Bears.
Maybe Cleveland wins one of those games or even more somehow. Regardless, we will all soon find out soon enough if the parade will go on or if the proceeds will go to the food bank.
