Remember Brett Kostoff? He's the guy that put his fan allegiance on eBay, hoping for another team, or at least a fan of another team, to purchase his allegiance. A Steelers fan did, paying the person formerly known as a Bengals fan, $510. With that money, the person formerly known as a Bengals fan bought Pittsburgh Steelers gear. ESPN's James Walker gets an update with Kostoff.
I couldn't be happier, honestly. I know that might sound crazy coming from a former Bengals fan, but it's like going from the basement to the penthouse as far as football operations. I never disliked Pittsburgh like the rest of the city of Cincinnati. I always RESPECTED it.
I thought it would take me longer to make the transition than it did, but I actually dislike the Bengals as a whole and it may just be the 20 years of torment as a fan they put me through.
Awesome. The guy that actually dislikes the Bengals, but was a fan anyway because of what they put him through, needed $510 and twenty years to decide that he should cheer for someone else. That's sharp thinking right there. I guess he's right at home in Pittsburgh. And we say that with the utmost jolly laughs with our Steelers fans.
