Browns and Balloons

USA US-999079 received 02-11-2011

Notes: This stadium was simply known as Cleveland Browns Stadium until 2013, when FirstEnergy purchased the naming rights.  It is now known, not surprisingly, as FirstEnergy Stadium.  It opened in 1999, and as I'm sure you've already guessed, it is home to the Cleveland Browns NFL team.  As of the 2014-15 season, it is one of only two stadiums in the NFL that has never hosted a playoff game or a Superbowl.  The other stadium is Levi's Stadium, the current home of the San Francisco 49ers, which just opened in July of 2014.  Since the Browns returned to Cleveland in 1999, they have only made the playoffs once (in 2002), and they lost in the first round to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Pittsburgh.

Ohio - Balloon Rally, Coshocton

Notes: Every year, there is a hot air balloon rally at the Coshocton Fairgrounds in Coshocton, Ohio.  Coshocton is a city of over 11,00 people located in east central Ohio.  It is next to the former Ohio and Erie Canal, and features Roscoe Village, a restored town of the canal era that is now a tourist attraction.  There is also a horse-drawn boat that gives rides on the canal.

In case anyone is interested in going, this year's balloon rally will take place June 4-6.
