The Cincinnati Bengals FINALLY won a game yesterday . . . beating the New York Jets 22-6. They’re now 1-11, so obviously they aren’t going to the playoffs . . . but it IS a big deal for one fan.
That’s Jeff Lanham . . . the crazy guy who pledged to live ON HIS ROOF until the Bengals won a game. He went up there on October 7th . . . and he even spent Thanksgiving up there with his family. Now he can finally come down.
Jeff said he’s “glad it’s over” . . . and he thanked his WIFE for her support. He said he couldn’t have stayed up on the roof away from his family and his business without her . . . because she brought him his meals, did his laundry, and helped cover all his responsibilities. He said, quote, “I mean, I didn’t do anything.”
(Here’s a local news report on Jeff after the Bengals’ win.)
By the way, the Bengals win snapped another streak.
Going into Sunday, all the NFL teams with CAT NAMES were 0-12 since that infamous black cat ran onto the field during a Giants game. The Panthers and Jaguars lost yesterday, so it COULD’VE been 0-15. But the Bengals won.
