On an incredibly EMOTIONAL night at TD Garden, Bostonians, Americans & Bruins fans sang their hearts out during the national anthem. Whether you were in the building or at home watching on television, you could not help but feel overwhelmed with sorrow, happiness and patriotism.

After a MADDENING 0-5 start (STANDARD procedure in Cleveland since ’99) which saw the Browns lose three games by 7 points or less, fans were playing the COULDA, SHOULDA, WOULDA game in their heads.
Close YET AGAIN but no CIGAR for a very YOUNG team.
While most NFL teams play 1 or 2 rookies, the Browns play 12. Every team has to start over with young players at some point. #ibelieve — Katie Giovannucci (@Katiegio3) December 9, 2012
Quarterback Brandon Weeden has got more and more comfortable in the offense. The “OLD MAN” rookie has cut down on costly turnovers that lost games for Browns earlier in the season. He is becoming the intelligent game manager that fans in Cleveland has CRAVED and has not seen since Bernie Kosar.
Yet ANOTHER offensive rookie, wide receiver Josh Gordon has also grown leaps and bounds. Gordon has become Weeden’s long distance threat which the opposition has to pay attention to. It’s only up from here for the former Baylor Bear.
