BEREA, OHIO (AP) - Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice grew up in the 1960s in the segregated South cheering for the Cleveland Browns. She still loves them today.

Rice, on a tour promoting her new book, stopped to visit her favorite NFL team on Thursday. Rice spoke to the team and spent a few minutes visiting with Browns president Mike Holmgren, whom she believes has her squad “going in the right direction.”

Rice, who once aspired to be league commissioner, said she was pleased with Roger Goodell’s decision to get tougher on helmet-to-helmet hits that can “maim” players.
