The Schizophrenic Football Fan's Car

Posted By on Tue, Jul 6, 2010 at 9:49 AM


Spotted yesterday on Pearl Rd. in Strongsville...

What is going on here, exactly?

Let's assume for a moment that these bumper stickers don't represent the split rooting interest of one fan. That's impossible. More likely, this is the car of a husband/wife where one roots for the Browns and one roots for the Steelers. As equally impossible as it is to some that a Browns fan would marry a Steelers fan, love does conquer all, and there are more important things than sports affiliations in relationships (like, for example, political affiliations or willingness to be a designated driver).

What boggles the mind, however, is that a husband or wife who roots for one team would allow their spouse to put the bumper sticker of not just another team, but his/her team's hated rival on the car next to the other one. Seriously, what man/woman would allow that to happen?
