If there was a contest for the greatest Bengals fan of all time, you’d have to give some consideration to Saul Sholler.

The Cincinnati native died at the age of 95 on Sunday, and his obituary, quite simply, is awesome. In it, the author pens that Sholler was a Vitamin E enthusiast, taught himself to use a computer in his 80s (which he then used to teach himself to play bridge) and he listened to his favorite classical music on his iPad.

Hell, he even apparently could quote Shakespeare  -- a fact his children didn’t learn until he was on his deathbed.

And then there was this, which I will copy and paste without comment:

“Accepting that the end was near, the funny grandfather and great-grandfather said earlier in the day there was an upside to death: at least he wouldn't have to watch another Bengals loss.”

As a Cubs fan, I think I see where he is coming from.  I mean i'm sure he watched every bengals game he could and he took every loss hard.  He finally felt that his life long commitment/pain with the Bengals would not have to follow him to the next step.  I know that even though the Cubs have had a horrid season, that I watch every game/pitch and still get pissed with every loss.  I will always cheer for my teams but there is a peace that is shown here on his death bed.

I simply love it when those who give a comment to a question/statement say, well, this is too stupid or sub-newsworthy to comment upon.
Well then, DON'T COMMENT ON IT. Stock markets have issues, people die, get arrested, steal, help, and say funny things. These things happen EVERY DAY. Commenting on this man's humorously valid words is no more a waste of time than looking up a stock quote. Maybe my post is a waste of time. But if it is make you you comment about it---so you can, you know, waste some more of your time!!

Shut up, Tigers fan.  Oh and your teams suck; all of them.  A quirky article for sure.  Did he know the guy? Probably not if he couldn't spell his name right.  I thought I was done seeing mundane articles such as this...

And surely, whodey1968, there are bigger stories for you to comment on.

It's an amusing note on a Tuesday night, not every story has to be earth shattering. If it isn't a big enough piece for you, simply move along citizen and perhaps stick to the stories on the home page
