Misery march: Browns fans facing bitter cold for 0-16 parade

CLEVELAND (AP) — The weather conditions will be suitably brutal. Like the Cleveland Browns’ season.

Despite temperatures forecast in the single digits, thousands of disillusioned fans are expected to attend a parade on Saturday to commemorate — and protest — the historically inept 0-16 season.

The “Perfect Season Parade” organizer Chris McNeil’s tongue-in-cheek tweet more than a year ago spawned a small uprising within Cleveland’s passionate fan base. He’s spent the past few days finalizing preparation for the parade. There will be a bus, RVs, an ambulance and hearse — to symbolically bury the season.

Fans will make a counter-clockwise “no victory” lap around FirstEnergy Stadium to form a zero to match the team’s win total.
