Go Browns

We hadn't been to a Browns game in a long time, so Don picked up some tickets for the home opener.

Before the game, we attended a small party at a downtown condo owned by Don's Accenture mentor, Karl Newkirk. After that, we walked to one of the large parking lots for a tailgate party hosted by Karl's nephews.

The game was pretty exciting since the Browns came from behind and gained the lead. Unfortunately, they lost to the Cincinnati Bengals in the end.

Since today was the tenth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, all branches of the military were present and participated in the pre-game ceremony. Taps was played, then an American flag the size of the entire football field was unfolded. While the National Anthem was sung, the field was covered in red, white and blue. I have to say, this was my favorite part of the afternoon.

"Day is done,
gone the sun
From the lakes,
from the hills,
from the sky
All is well,
safely rest
God is nigh."
