With the Rolling Stones’ “Start me up” potentially on its way out as the team introduction song for the Browns 1 , it is being reported by ESPNCleveland’s Will Burge that Cleveland will now be introduced amidst two ten-foot flame throwers which are to be housed within the confines of Cleveland Browns Stadium.
Jimmy Haslam III, fresh off of his trip to Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, will continue to attempt to improve the in-game experience for those who pay their hard-earned money to attend games on the lakefront. While any business man can tell you that wholesale changes cannot be made overnight — unless it’s the installation of fan-accessible Wifi within Quicken Loans Arena, anyway — that steps undoubtedly need to be made to get the fan experience headed in the right direction.
The flame throwers are obviously similar to those attached to Dan Gilbert’s Q Tube, used during the introduction of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Naturally, as any fan of the Browns will tell you, a win against the Pittsburgh Steelers is also a solid step in improving said experience.
