    The Cleveland Browns Win A Game For First Time Since Obama Presidency


    The Cleveland Browns had a rare win Thursday Night. They beat another NFL team for the first time, since Christmas Eve of 2016.

    Cleveland went crazy, there was a promotion campaign that had offered free beer if the team won a game in 2018. The free beer came in the form of Bud Light. Anheuser-Busch (a brewing company) had promised to give Browns fans a cold beer if their team could win a game.

    Anheuser-Busch installed “victory fridges”, refrigerators in bars around Cleveland and surrounding areas that were synced to unlock when and if the browns win.

    The Browns beat the New York Jets, 21-17, bringing their record to .500. Three games into the 2018 season, the Browns are 1-1, with one tie.

    Many important people acknowledged the win.

    The Cleveland Police Department tweeted, “We WON!!! —Wait….Oh God. The free beer thing…Ok Cleveland. Stay calm. GO BROWNS!!! @Browns @budlight #CLE”

    Lebron James tweeted “Congratulations @Browns!!!!!”

    When Will Adams was asked how he felt about this win, he said, “It’s a miracle!!”

    The Browns took 635 days to win. The Browns are now three games into the season, with one win, one lose, and one tie.
