As the Cleveland Indians prepare for their one game playoff against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays tonight, the Browns made this video message to wish them luck and show their support. Maybe the best part of the video beyond the fact it is awesome to see the Browns support the Indians is the fact that the video features a bunch of local kids who grew up rooting for the Indians.
Those include quarterback Brian Hoyer from North Olmsted, guard John Greco from Youngstown and linebacker Justin Staples from Lakewood. The video also includes Joe Haden who has become a Cleveland superfan, especially for the Cavs but also for the Indians and wide receiver Greg Little, who has really been on the Indians bandwagon this season and been to a ton of games in his free time and running back Chris Ogbannaya. It also includes President Alec Scheiner, who has been incredibly active himself in trying to become part of Cleveland but has been really active trying to enhance the Browns’ identity both in the stadium and in the community.
This is a big week for Cleveland sports in general as the Indians have an opportunity to earn a spot in the National Division League Series Wednesday night and the Browns are preparing for the Bills on Thursday night with a chance to win their third straight game and at least for a few days, have sole possession of first place in the AFC North.
