Browns, Bengals, Indians, and Reds all win on same day
What happened yesterday in Ohio sports wasn’t exactly as rare as Halley’s Comet, but it still was a pretty rare sports occasion.
It was bothering me so I fired up the W.S.B & on Sunday Oct 2 1988 the Browns-Indians-Bengals-Reds all WON on the same day (Last Time)— Gene Winters (@WintersGo) September 23, 2013
All four professional teams from the State of Ohio won their games yesterday for the first time since 1988.
I wouldn’t say Ohio sports have quite reached the pinnacle of success yet, but it is hard to complain when there are undefeated days like Sunday.
Which makes you wonder about the overall outlook of Ohio sports.
Both the Indians and Reds are currently in playoff position and I think we all know it has been awhile since the Indians and Reds made the playoffs in the same year. We will just have to keep our fingers crossed for that one.
As for the Browns, Brian Hoyer silenced all the doubters by leading the Brownies to a big win over the Minnesota Vikings, and managed to probably save a few Browns fans from going off the deep end.
The Bengals had a magnificent come from behind victory to beat the Packers and are starting to look like the Super Bowl caliber team many pegged them for this year.
In Columbus, we have the Buckeyes once again in National Championship talks and a backup quarterback, Kenny Guitton, who is setting records week after week.
Not to mention the Crew defeated rival Chicago Fire 3-0 on Saturday, and the Blue Jackets notched a W against the Penguins in the preseason.
I don’t want to brag too much, but Ohio sports sure looked pretty good this weekend.
Hopefully we don’t have to wait another 25 years for another undefeated day.
