Joe Haden talked about the race between the Cleveland Browns and Cleveland Cavaliers for who wins a championship first. Haden talked about the player that led the team to a championship would get a statue in Cleveland right away. A fan took that literally and created a Kickstarter campaign to raise the money to build the statue. We received this in an email:
I agree with Joe Haden — the race is on between the Cavs and Browns for a trophy.
Today I launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a statue for a Browns player who leads the team to a Super Bowl.
Given your love of the Browns, I thought you might enjoy it. Here’s the link:
Part of his Kickstarter campaign was this video:
He put a lot of effort into the video. The Kickstarter campaign is for a quality cause. Obviously first the Browns must win the Super Bowl but if/when they do the money will be well worth it. Lets take a look at a few details from the campaign:
Cleveland fans have waited 50 years for a sports championship.
The MVP Classic Award aims to break that streak.
The award offers a Browns player the ultimate incentive for winning a title – a life-size statue in Cleveland.
Pledged funds will pay for the cost of the statue.
The MVP Classic Award is intended to be a MVP of the fans, by the fans, and for the fans.
The award is created and given by Browns fans who are backers.
Backers will receive an electronic newsletter that will be a forum to identify, support, and cheer Browns worthy of a MVP Classic Award.
Backers who pledge $100 will be eligible to purchase a replica of the MVP Classic Award statue.
