The stadium is no longer the “factory of sadness,” as coined by a local comedian. Now it could be called the “house of happiness” after Sunday’s game against the Steelers.
The city celebrated big. You’d think we’d just won a playoff game. A rock and roll band set up on a street corner downtown. Bars were packed. Almost everywhere you looked was a sea of brown and orange.
Fans were feeling good about their team and about their city. It’s amazing what winning will do for morale, especially when the win comes against rival Pittsburgh Steelers.
The game was never close. Fans had an enjoyable afternoon from start to finish.
“I am very happy about Hoyer,” said one Browns fan.
