Cleveland Cavaliers guard Matthew Dellavedova attended his first NFL game ever on Sunday when he stopped by First Energy Stadium to check out the Browns' victory over the Baltimore Ravens. He didn't use his status as the pride of Australia or an NBA player for free passes, though, or even 50-yard line seats. Delly just wanted to go to the game so he bought tickets online and sat in the upper deck with a bunch of blue-collar Browns fans.   Browns game - glad I got a beanie and gloves today!! pic.twitter.com/TOmCWB3GRu — Matthew Dellavedova (@matthewdelly) November 3, 2013 "I saw the tickets on Stubhub and just grabbed them," Dellavedova told me. "The seats were pretty high up on the lake side and it was cold. But I wore my warmest jacket, gloves and a beanie and we made it through okay." The former St. Mary's University star said he had been to a college football game before but never an NFL game. San Francisco would've been the closest team while he was stateside in college but he never made that trek. "The Browns game was great," Dellavedova added. "Cleveland fans are awesome." After impressing the Cavs front office and coaching staff throughout summer league and training camp, Dellavedova has earned a roster spot with his energy and toughness along with his ability to shoot the basketball. The member of Australia's National Team is St. Mary's all-time leader in scoring, assists, games played, free-throw percentage and three-point shots. Delly added an NBA debut to his already extensive resume over the weekend against the Indiana Pacers. He's also a great guy to have in town who definitely deserves sideline passes for the next Browns game he has time to attend. -- Photo: Ron Schwane-USA TODAY Sports
