Cleveland hosts first preseason game against the Redskins.
The Cleveland Browns officially kicked off their season recently under the lights with the Redskins.

When those gates open at 8:15 a.m., you bet every tent, barricade, table linen, chair, free poster, and inflatable is in its place before the Dawg Pound enters those gates! Even though we are required to arrive at 6 a.m., my alarm will sound at at the early hour of 4:30. After much preparation, working actual training camp is when the fun starts. Cleveland Browns fans come from all over the country, and even the world to see their favorite team prepare for the upcoming season. If watching the players up close, unlimited rides on the inflatable obstacle courses, give-aways and autographs sessions are not enough to bring fans in, then I do not know what is!
We have many responsibilities daily which are rotated each camp day, including setting everything up, scanning tickets, working the Browns Backers Worldwide tent, coordinating … Read More »
