"Perfect Season" Parade
An estimated 3,000 fans braved bitterly cold temperatures last Saturday, for a parade to "celebrate" the Cleveland Browns' perfect record of futility in 2017. Lakewood residents joined fans traveling from throughout northeast Ohio and even further away, to numb the sting of an 0-16 record through humor (and arctic cold). The event, organized by Chris McNeil and other volunteers, attracted sponsorship from Excedrin and Farmers Only and ultimately raised $15,000 for the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.
