In this 2005 interview with the Enquirer, Katie Blackburn, Bengals Executive Vice President, Daughter of Mikey and unsuccessful sign stealer, proudly admits that she roots for the Steelers in the playoffs because "The one time I root for the teams in our division is when they are in the playoffs."
Is she even a Bengals fan? Who the fuck says they root for our biggest rival when they are in the playoffs because we play them twice a year? This is like some girl saying she cheers for the Red Sox because her friend in college cheered for the Red Sox. REAL fans know that if they were unfortunate to have grown up in geographic proximity to Cincinnati than we are cursed with being Bengals fans. And being a Bengals fan means acknowleding that Pittsburgh is the Cleveland of Pennsylvania.
