Upon recently signing a sweet, guaranteed $2.5 million contract with the Cleveland Browns, Ben Tate could definitely afford to spring for the tab of 44 of his closest fans. I wonder if the cooks got all the particulars of that large order correct?
Tate spontaneously chose 44 (his jersey number) of the most creative Browns fans who tweeted a photo or statement proving their loyalty to meet up with him.

Next thing you know, Tate and his fans are have a meet and greet at a local McDonald’s.

Here’s a look at some of the fan’s tweeting efforts used to catch Tate’s eye.

Maybe the only thing more cool than hanging out with Tate at McDonalds would have been eating with Ronald McDonald himself.
Never mind, I’ll retract that statement.
It was pretty easy for Tate to please 44 fans, buy springing for Big Macs, cherry pies and McFlurries, but he’ll have thousands of fans come September to impress. Do you think Tate will rock as Cleveland’s likely lead running back in 2014?
