Check out photos of our mascot Swagger
It's not often we like to start the BSMR on a down note, but we'd like to acknowledge Swagger once again and congratulate him on a wonderful career with the Browns!
Prior to the game against Seattle on Sunday, he got to make one more walk through the tunnel and onto the field.
The game also presented an opportunity to introduce fans to 11-month-old SJ, the proud family member who will take over Swagger's duties beginning Nov. 10, when the Browns host the Bills.
Crucial Catch and in the Community
Sunday also represented the Crucial Catch game at FirstEnergy Stadium. Through fundraising, education, and awareness initiatives, the NFL and their partnership with the American Cancer Society utilize the Crucial Catch program to focus on the prevention and early detection of multiple cancers, including breast cancer.
Through the Make a Wish Foundation, our new friend Ernesto was able to come to practice, meet his favorite player - wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. - and even spend time with him at Sunday's game!
Defensive end Myles Garrett is the captain of the NFL Waterboys. Named for one of the most overlooked but integral positions on any team, Waterboys unites NFL players from across the league in service. As Waterboys, players team up with fans in support of a single shared cause: providing clean, accessible drinking water to communities in need. Now in his third year of serving on the Waterboys team, Myles is leading the roster of active NFL Waterboys in the mission of bringing water to one million people. For donations this week, you'll be able to take part in his "ask-me-anything" later this week.
Cornerback T.J. Carrie and his foundation teamed up with the MCORE Foundation to provide preventative heart screenings. Carrie, who had heart complications growing up, is giving back to a cause that means an incredible amount to him. He held a tailgate at Garrett Morgan School of Science to kick off the partnership. As a heart healthy partner, the Greater Cleveland Food Bank was on hand as well.
You don't grow guys like Carrie... or do you?
