From the moment I was born, I was destined to be a Cleveland Browns fan. If you’ve read my blog for any amount of time, you probably know this. I am a Cleveland fan through and through. No, I did not grow up in Cleveland, Ohio (I actually grew up in Washington Redskins territory), but my dad was born and raised in Cleveland and, so, when I was born, he knew he was going to raise a Browns fan.
CASE IN POINT – this is me as a very, very young baby with my dad:
I never stood a chance.
In any event, my love for the Browns runs deep and it runs thick and I will never falter.
Now, my husband is a Carolina Panthers fan. HOWEVER, when we got married, he knew my love for the Browns and so he agreed that we could raise our kids to be Browns fans (with a little side of Panthers… haha!!) And, he will even admit, John has come around and is totally a Browns fan now, too!
BUT, especially as evidenced by our performance yesterday, the Browns are terrible at football. We have pretty much always been terrible and likely will be for the rest of my life. But it’s cool. I like to think that my love of the Cleveland Browns has just taught me about resilience, toughness, and sticking it out through thick and thin.
In any event, it’s fun to get the kids (namely Lilly at this age) excited about FOOTBALL SEASON! Remember my excitement about football season LAST YEAR?
Especially now that we have Amos, it’s so fun to get coordinating Browns apparel from the NFL Fan Shop for the whole family! Something for me, Lilly, Amos, John, and even my dad!
This is how I feel about the Browns too, Lilly… :-/
I love that the NFL fan shop has so many cute styles for us to root on the Browns!!
I MEAN, LOOK AT THIS GUY! Cutest!!
So, this Cleveland Browns bear? This Cleveland Browns bear was MY BEAR when I was a baby!!! This bear is, at least, 31 years old! Crazy, right??!?!
These two… Lilly just loves her brother so hard. Amos is not really having it. Oh well. I can’t even with them. <3
What about you? Are you a football fan? What team do you root for? Does your fandom run deep in your family? What do you wear on game days? Sound off in the comments! 🙂
