Remember The Bengals Fan That Sold His Fanhood On eBay?

New, comments

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.
