I’ve been a Bengals fan my entire life. I’ve rooted for them from the Super Bowl, through 20 years of turmoil, to the current hopeful feelings of a bright future. I watch every Sunday with my hopes high and my heart on my sleeve, and a win made my day, but a loss ruined my entire week. I live Bengals football.
I do, however, enjoy watching other teams, and certain other players. Barry Sanders is one of the most exciting players in history, and I loved to watch him when possible. Deion Sanders was another fun guy to see (him being a player for the Cincinnati Reds helped). A third guy I always enjoyed was Junior Seau. I didn’t get a lot of San Diego Chargers games growing up in Kentucky, but when I did, I watched. He played the game the way it was, and is, supposed to be played by a linebacker. He used his speed and talent to not only make seemingly every tackle, but he made big tackles with big hits. He also had the ability to create turnovers, intercepting 18 passes over his career.
