    Browns to add weiner dog races this season

    Browns to add weiner dog races this season

    For years, the Browns have celebrated the Dawg Pound persona.

    This year, they will officially go to the dogs.

    As part of efforts to help modernize and personalize the fan experience, the Browns are rolling out a number of new initiatives, including bringing actual canines onto the field.

    According to Will Burge of ESPNCleveland.com,
    there will be actual weiner dog races at Browns games this year.

    The idea is apparently the brainchild of Kevin Griffin, the team’s new vice president of fan experience and marketing (and the nephew of Ohio State legend Archie Griffin). Griffin worked with the Seahawks and the Seattle Sounders, and apparently the dachsund dashes were a hit there.

    That’s just one of the events they have in store, as they hope to modernize player introductions, and have other events to engage fans.

    But weiner dogs, gang. If they can find a way to get
    Barkevious Mingo involved in this promotion, somebody needs to get a raise.

    Makes me think of the guy with a wiener on his face running around the field. Guess it's ok to have events with dogs unless Michael Vick comes to town.

    Yeah exactly Flip, though I think that subjecting poor little weiner dogs to Browns games is cruel and unusual punishment.

    This guy should be the poster boy for what happens when you are careless about posting stupid images/videos/thoughts all over these interwebs.

    How many years ago was this?

    That's him. Thanks for finding. That pick cracks me up more than just about anything. I tried to find it, but searching for "Brown Fan with D!ck on His Face" didn't return the kind of pics I cared to sort through.

    that does sound like a very inhumane thing to do and something that the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals would look into...

    Dog poop would certainly be an appropriate mascot for a team called the Browns.
