Rooting for a perennial Loser!!

Posted on: November 14, 2008 3:40 pm

It's starting to get to that point in the season ( if not a few weeks earlier), that a good majority of NFL fans out in this wonderfull landscape begin to realize that the team they root for is done. As for people in my shoes that root for the hapless Bengals we saw this come to fruition over four weeks ago. So my question to anyone who reads this is do you happen to root for any teams that habitually seem to fall short of makeing the postseason in any sport, and if you do how do you deal with it. It's not always as easy as saying " There's always next year."

Rooting for a perennial Loser!!


Great post! I too remember jumping up and down in my basement when Todd benzinger caught that final out in 90'. I remember Eric davis putting it on the line, Billy Hatcher coming out of nowhere, and Jose Rio pitching two gems. i also remember Boomer and that Super run that they made. i remember Crumrie breaking his leg ang the way his back-up ( what was his name?) played inspired D. Stanford Jennings opening return and the dropped INT that would have sealed the deal! I'm sure Billips remembers it also! IGet .... To note I moved out of Cincy when I was in the forth grade and have lived in Baltimore for the past 11 years yet I'm still a diehard bengals Fan.

Rooting for a perennial Loser!!

Ocho, I am guilty as charged on two counts, the Bengals and the Reds. I have seen two Super Bowl years for the Bengals and a few notable years, including 2005, during my lifetime. I have seen the Reds win three World Series (1975, 1976, 1990) during those same years. As all Bengals and Reds fans know, the good years have been few and far between in the last couple of decades. But, I am a fan, and I am not a bandwagon jumper, so I am loyal to the Bengals and Reds, no matter what.
