BEREA, Ohio -- The Cleveland Browns got a different kind of cooldown after training camp on Friday.
The Browns, along with head coach Mike Pettine, accepted the Ice Bucket Challenge, to raise awareness for ALS, also known as Lou Gherig’s disease.

Pettine talked about the ice bath. “I got lucky. I’m sure when you review the tape I was braced for it, and I think the buckets, because they were filled with ice, were a little bit heavy for the guys to lift. I got some down the back which was refreshing. It was good. It’s for a great cause. I do want to go ahead and put the challenge out there to the (ESPN) Monday Night (Football) crew, especially (MNF commentator) Mike Tirico and (MNF analyst) Jon Gruden. I know they’ll appreciate it. I was around (Baltimore Ravens senior advisor to play development) O.J. Brigance, who was afflicted with ALS, in Baltimore. He’s just an amazing person, and I just think it’s for a great cause.”
Our FOX 8 Morning Show anchors took the challenge earlier this week. Click to watch the video.
