Cleveland Browns Add Wiener Dog Races

You’ve seen ‘races’ at sports events. The sausages racing at Milwaukee Brewers games, or the Presidents at Washington Nationals games. Usually at other sporting events it is an animated simulation on a jumbo tron.

But apparently the Cleveland Browns will add “Wiener Dog Races” to their Dawg Pound.

According to ESPN Cleveland:

Perhaps the strangest of all changes coming to First Energy Stadium this season is also Kevin Griffin’s favorite: Wiener dog races. Griffin worked with the Seattle Seahawks and Sounders and these were a hit with the crowds in the great Northwest.

The source said that Griffin is, “all about this one”.

Here is how it works: One game a year the fastest wiener dogs in the Midwest will put their “speed” to the test. The dogs will line up at the 50 yard line and Chomps (the Browns mascot) will wave a green flag. The dogs will then awkwardly run towards the end zone. First dog to the Dawg pound wins.

Here is video of one of the Seattle Seahawks’ wiener dog races.
