CLEVELAND– The Cleveland Browns are inching closer to a 0-16 season and one devoted fan is moving forward with his idea to celebrate the feat.

Chris McNeil created an event on Facebook last month for the “Browns Perfect Season Parade.”

On Wednesday, McNeil met with Cleveland city officials to turn what started as a joke into a reality. The steering committee meeting included about 20 people from different city departments like police and fire.

He said he received good feedback and everyone seemed open to the idea. A private security firm has been retained for the event and most permits have been filed.

McNeil said the parade will likely happen, unless the Browns win a game. More than 4,300 users said they are going to the Jan. 7 celebration around FirstEnergy Stadium. The route originally created a zero and 16, but has been changed to minimize any disruption to the Great Lakes Science Center.

Cleveland is 0-12 heading into their game on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals.
