Community Gathers for Rival Football Game

by Courtney Wheaton on November 18, 2013

Both Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals fans joined under one roof to watch the rival game on Sunday.

Members of the community met at The Barn around 1 p.m. for kick off  and to enjoy food while cheering on their favorite teams. One visitor says that he has been a Cleveland fan since the 1970’s, and although he says that the Browns aren’t doing the best he still has high hopes for the team.

"It’s been a different year, said Phil Harris." We are struggling with the quarterback situation, but I think we are getting better. The offensive line is getting better, take Joe Thomas, I played college football so I enjoy that part of it so I watch it a lot . "

Two local fans on the Cincinnati side explained why they are rooting for the Bengals.

I grew up in house full of Browns fans and the rebel I am I had to choose the other side, " said Doug Bennett.

"I like AJ Green because he is my favorite wide receiver, " said Landon Walter.

All of the Bengals support must have paid off. The team won the game 41-20 on Sunday.
