When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
As I said before....
I got to thinking the other day while talking to a fellow Ohioan who is a Browns fan. (We both reside in SC) I am a Bengals fan being born in the Southwest part of the State. We wondered if Browns and Bengals fans could actually come together and push for a merger of both Cleveland and Cincinnati and put the NFL team in Columbus. Obviously, CBUS has the big draw of OSU, but it has had some marginal success with the Blue Jackets and the Crew.
What do you Redszoners think? Would you give up your beloved franschises for a possible winner in Columbus? A farther drive for each area to watch a game, but you could not simply dissolve one for the other.
I for one would because I don't care about the stripes or the history, I want to take some pride in knowing my team is a contender year in and year out. I see neither team making the leap to a NFL powerhouse anytime soon. As long as Mike Brown and his daughter control the team in Cincy and the Browns stay cursed, I for one would forgo the embarssment that is PRO FOOTBALL in Ohio for a new franchise in C BUS.
On a side note, I wonder what it's like to be from Pittsburgh? Hard to breathe in that town, but gosh what a team!
The Browns deserved to be cursed.
The Bengals deserve a new owner.
Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.
