Do you remember what it was like to be at that high school football game watching your school verse its rival? That feeling of uncertainty, not knowing who was going to win? The excitement was almost too much to handle. It was a nail-biter every single time. Imagine how us Clevelanders feel when our own Cleveland Browns play the Pittsburgh Steelers, that whole excitement thing I was talking about goes to a whole new level. Now there’s a way for you to get involved and show your support! “Brown and Orange Week” is a way for Clevelanders to do just that.
It’s a week to show loyalty and support for our Browns as they get ready to play the Pittsburgh Steelers, their longtime rival, this Sunday, November 24th at First Energy Stadium. This isn’t just like any high school rivalry, this is the greatest rivalry in the NFL. Whether you’re a new fan of the Browns, or a long-time fan, this intense rivalry hits home. No matter what, we continue to watch and attend the games every Sunday.
Mayor Frank Jackson will be holding a press conference today at City Hall to set it in stone. Bob Grace, Chairman and President of the Browns Backers will also be involved. TV20 of course will be there to cover this event, so stay tuned this week for more updates! We hope to see an overwhelming amount of people sporting their brown and orange this week. I happen to have brown on right now! Cleveland sports have the greatest fans around, it’s never too late to become one. As always, keep watching TV20 for more updates, as we will be airing the whole press conference during this week! Go Browns!
