Absolutely! I am a lifelong Bengals diehard. I have been heard to say that I hate the Browns more than once in my lifetime (esp. during the Bernie years).
However... the Bernie vs. Boomer years were great times. I was in college at Ohio University (mid-80's) and had some of the best times at parties with a 50-50 Bengals-Browns crowd during those games. Great fun and great games between two good teams.
When Jerk Modell took that team away I was bummed. It ruined the fun and twice-a-year games. I really missed playing the Brownies during that 3-year span. Even when our teams were not very good it was still fun to play that in-state game twice a year. It was one of the only highlights of 15 long years for this Bengals fan.
This time... Bengals 27 - Brownies 17.
