Calendar of a diehard Bengal’s fan

Here is my attempt at the typical monthly calendar of a die-hard Bengals’ fan.

.

1990’s~2000’s

.

JAN – Watch other teams in the playoffs

.

FEB – Watch other teams in the Super Bowl

.

MAR – Look forward to the draft with optimist that “this year” they will figure it out

.

APR – Cringe with every draft selection. Find yourself agreeing with the draftniks as they tear apart the Bengals’ draft, as you realize yet again that the Bengals just don’t have a clue what they are doing.

.

MAY – Still sick from the draft, watch a couple Reds’ games, trying to put football out of mind. Think to yourself, “Reds’ look good this year. Maybe the Bengals can do that in the fall?”

.

JUN – Spend the month trying to rationalize the Bengals’ draft choices hoping that perhaps they know something the rest of the NFL doesn’t know (besides how to lose consistently).

.

JUL – Sell yourself on the excuses you made in June trying to find a way to convince yourself that the draft picks weren’t as terrible as they seem.

.

AUG – Go to Wilmington/G-town with optimism hoping this is the year, the year they can hit 0.500 or better. Feel good, since they look good playing against themselves in preseason scrimmages.

.

SEP – Season begins. Lots of optimism. This is the year we make the playoffs!!! OK, slow start, but we’ve got a lot of football still to play.

.

OCT – Ok, we aren’t 8-0, but hey, we’ve won a couple games. We’re just getting warmed up for our 2nd half of the season surge. All isn’t lost.

.

NOV – Hmmm... season isn’t exactly going as I’d hoped. At least not every loss was a blowout.

.

DEC – Well, we avoided going 0-16, and as least we’ll have a great draft spot in the draft next year. We can’t screw that up, again.

.

.

Last half decade to present

.

JAN – Occasionally watch the Bengals in the playoffs – huh, I like this whole “Bengals in the playoffs” thing!

.

FEB – Watch other teams in the Super Bowl

.

MAR – Look forward to the draft with optimist, hoping to build on a good draft last year

.

APR – Draft didn’t go exactly as I was mocking, but all the picks seem pretty good. Bengals get an A or B from every draftnik. Smile that Mike Brown gives Marvin Lewis some input in the draft.

.

MAY – Full of optimism. Watch a couple Reds’ games and wonder, “Reds look bad this year. I thought this Griffey guy was supposed to make them better?”

.

JUN – Full of optimism. Watch a couple more Reds’ games and wonder, “Sure seems like the Reds could use a starting pitcher, or five.”

.

JUL – Hoping the draft picks get signed. Looking forward to camp.

.

AUG – Go to G-town with optimism hoping this is the year, the year they can make another playoff run. Rookies look good. Not a ton of injuries.

.

SEP – Season begins. Lots of optimism. This is the year we make the playoffs!!! Team playing well.

.

OCT – Cool, good start. Hoping they keep it up.

.

NOV – Team is still playing well. I’m liking this. We’re in contention.

.

DEC – Another fade at the end, but we might get in the playoffs.
