Cleveland Browns @ Baltimore Ravens

Yesterday I went to the 1 PM game at M & T Bank Stadium and saw the Ravens hand the Browns a 24-10 loss was a good game nice win but losing your best player in the process is never good Marshal Yanda broke his ankle on the first run of the third quarter and makes a thin line even thinner.  Ravens also lost for the season back-up linebacker Bam Bradley so an expensive W.  I did autographs before and after the game and got 51 players and 66 total autographs.  Was also able to get 3 game used items after the game gloves from the Browns Derrick Kindred and Jamar Taylor a Skull Cap from the Ravens Tyus Bowser who recorded his first NFL Sack & Interception during the game.  See below for who and what I got signed.

It was a fun show with lasers, big screens (probably the best screens I've seen at a show to date must have been new) guitars and most of the hits.  Both bands had a couple songs they could/should have played in my opinion but you can't play everything!  See the set-lists below and a couple pictures.
