Somehow I made it to the last Browns game of the season. They played the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, January 3, 2010 when northeast Ohio and western Pennsylvania were starting to experience their first big bout of lake effect snow.
I started my trip from eastern PA across the state and up to Cleveland, OH at 4AM. I really wanted to be in the stadium at 11AM when they opened. I don't make games often, but I do have front row seats and I really wanted to meet my friend from Columbus, OH and #89 tight end, Evan Moore. It was both their birthdays.
I don't drive in snow. When it snows I have a snow day. Needless to say, I was not mentally prepared to deal with what Mother Nature had in store for me. (Although I did take a few supplies with me: shovel, salt, charged capacitor, food, water, blanket, etc. Western PA can be very unforgiving.) It did all turn out great though, as you will see.
