Cleveland will recognize retiring Browns left tackle Joe Thomas with a day in his honor, and Thomas wants his fans to get the day off.

After the city announced that July 3 (for his No. 73 jersey) is officially recognized as Joe Thomas Day in Cleveland, Thomas proposed that everyone get to celebrate.

Id like to lobby @CityofCleveland to make 7/3 an official holiday where the city government is closed, banks are closed, mandatory day off for all workers. It only make sense to roll into Americas birthday with a little pre-game holiday for all on the 3rd. Retweet if you agree, Thomas wrote on Twitter. This should be an all-Midwest holiday. Anywhere you; eat brats for special occasions, go to fish frys on fridays, drink bloody Marys on sundays, opening day is a holiday, and drink beer on anyday ending in Y.
