After the Browns’ devastating loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday,Cleveland native Drew Carey remarked that fans were better off taking their families to see the orchestra than go to a game.
The Akron Symphony followed up on Carey’s comments.
“When Drew Carey made those comments, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity,” said Heather Roszczyk, director of marketing and public relations for the Akron Symphony Orchestra.
The symphony gave away free tickets to Friday’s concert at E.J. Thomas Hall in exchange for a Browns ticket stub.
I know everyone likes to ask the question “is this rock bottom?” during a Browns season. Getting embarrassed by Pittsburgh- “is this rock bottom?” Losing on a last second kick-six to Baltimore- “is this rock bottom?” Getting blown the fuck out 37-3 at home to the Bengals- “is this rock bottom?”
The answer to all of the above is NO.
People trading in the Browns tickets to see an orchestra pluck some strings, blow some horns, and bang on some drums is rock bottom. Trading in the chance to see a football game to see an orchestra is rock bottom. No offense to all of our readers that may be musically inclined, but the fact that people are willingly trading in NFL football tickets to see a couple of Christmas carols performed by instruments is insane. That’s where we are. That’s how bad it’s gotten.
