If we’re lucky, Saturday’s Browns’ exhibition game against the Detroit Lions will be blacked out.
This being Cleveland, we never get our desired result. Therefore rest assured you’ll be able to see the tilt despite the fact that it is not yet sold out. Yes, for the first time since the Browns returned from the dead in 1999 there’s a chance that one of their games will be blacked out locally. Half-price tickets are currently on sale. The Browns are also offering a family four-pack that includes hot dogs and sodas for $99. Apparently someone thinks this is a good deal to see the Browns play the Lions in a game that doesn’t count.
After last night’s atrocious 17-0 loss to Green Bay in the exhibition opener, Browns fans should be rooting for the blackout.
