Sports fans are known to do crazy things. Hopefully not injury-risking, set-yourself-on-fire-jumping-onto-a-flaming-table crazy, but a better kind of crazy.

Jeff Lanham is more in the latter category. We think.

Joke announcement becomes real

Lanham and his wife Chrissy own Hog Rock Cafe in Milan, Ind., about 40 miles from Cincinnati; as you’d guess, they’re Bengals fans.

Via the Washington Post, after the Bengals lost their fourth game of the season, Chrissy Lanham was on Facebook trying to defend their team in the wake of the 27-3 drubbing at the hands of the Pittsburgh Steelers when Jeff told her he was going to live on the roof of the sports bar if Cincinnati lost to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 5.

  Peter Schmuck: Success won't spoil this Ravens team, because Lamar Jackson won't let it BALTIMORE - The Ravens have every right to be sky-high after scoring back-to-back victories over two of the best teams in the NFL, but that doesn't mean they're going to come back down any time soon. Sure, the Cincinnati Bengals have been kryptonite to the Ravens in the recent past, but the winless team Lamar Jackson and Co. will face Sunday won't bear any resemblance to the ones that regularly found ways break hearts in Baltimore during the late stages of the Marvin Lewis era.

One Cincinnati Bengals fan is living up to the longer version of the word until his favorite NFL team actually wins a game this season. Lanham better get used to that roof because the Bengals are at the first-place Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, face a resurgent Jacksonville Jaguars team with Gardner

Then he jokingly proclaimed that he would live on the roof of the restaurant if the Bengals lost to Should Cincinnati defy the odds and become the sixth team in NFL history to finish the season He would then return to the roof when the 2020 season begins and stay there until the Bengals secure

Jeff was joking, but Chrissy changed the game when she shared her husband’s pronouncement on live television before the Cardinals game; local station WKRC often does remote hits from Hog Rock’s popular tailgate party when Cincinnati is on the road.

As a man of his word, after the Bengals lost to the Cardinals, Jeff followed through.

Living on the roof

On October 7, the day after the Bengals’ loss in Arizona, 42-year-old Jeff has been living on the roof of the restaurant.

“I said it, so it’s my fault, but she kinda put salt in the wound by saying it live on channel 12 news. So now I’m livin’ it,” Lanham said. “Until they win, I’m stuck on the roof.”

For the record, it’s been 41 days so far. On Sunday, Cincinnati is on the road against the Oakland Raiders and the Raiders are favored to win.

  Jackson dazzles as Ravens rout winless Bengals 49-13 The Baltimore Ravens won their fifth in a row, routing the winless Cincinnati Bengals 49-13 on Sunday. The Ravens (7-2) followed their eye-opening victory over the previously unbeaten Patriots by quickly pulling away from the NFL's last winless team.BOX SCORE: RAVENS 49, BENGALS 13It was the Lamar Jackson show from the start - a 49-yard completion on his first throw. His only incompletion in the first half was on a spike.Jackson finished 15 of 17 - a club-record completion percentage - for 223 yards and a perfect passer rating of 158.3, his second of the season.

An Indiana restaurant owner has pledged to live in a tent on the roof of the establishment until his favorite team , the Cincinnati Bengals , win a game. "You know I think personally if they get back, they'll win ." Wildman Walker, who famously spent 61 days living on a billboard in 1991 waiting for the

This might last a while. One Cincinnati Bengals is willing to do the unthinkable until his team actually wins a game this season. According to Tessa DiTirro of WKRC, Jeff Lanham is living in a tent on the roof above his Hog Rock Cafe restaurant until the 0-7 Bengals find their first win .

Save for a half-day off, when he honored a commitment to cook to help family friends’ sick child, Jeff has spent 23 hours a day in a 12-foot by 10-foot tent on the roof of Hog Rock. Initially he walked laps around the roof to pass time, but it’s already snowed in Milan, so Jeff spends most of his day in his sleeping bag watching Netflix on a flat screen television.

He also has a heater, clothes, snacks and a cot. He comes down to use the bathroom and to shower, but his meals are delivered either by restaurant staff or his wife, who also brings him clean clothes from their home, which is a few minutes away.

Jeff’s arrangement wasn’t part of a bet, so really there aren’t any rules dictating what he can and can’t do.

But the sports bar’s patrons have been following along, and they seemingly made up the rules.

“When the Bengals lost the Cardinals game I had intended to only leave for Bengals’ home games, but the haters on Facebook and stuff kept whining so I just don’t go nowhere,” he said. “All I do is go to the bathroom and then back out here on the roof.

Ravens' Jackson posts his 2nd perfect passer rating of season

  Ravens' Jackson posts his 2nd perfect passer rating of season Lamar Jackson went 15 of 17 throwing for three touchdowns and 223 yards before stepping aside for Robert Griffin III to finish the game. He posted a perfect passer rating (158.3) for the second time this season, becoming only the second quarterback—after Ben Roethlisberger of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2007—to reach the mark twice in the same seasonJackson also scored on a highlight-reel dash in the third quarter, leaving Bengals defenders strewn about the field on an electric 47-yard run. Jackson hit Mark Andrews for two touchdown passes in the first half and found Marquise Brown for a third in the third quarter.

The fan has lived on the roof of his restaurant for a month and he's vowed to stay there until his team wins . Would you do this for your team ? "People offered to help me up the embankment. I thought, well I could fall after I got up on the at the gas station so I chose to stay in the car."

Cincinnati Bengals . Sunday, October 20. A Bengals Fan Is Living In A Tent On The Roof Of His Restaurant Until They Win A Game.

“You just get bored as hell up here watching TV and Netflix, but there’s literally nothing else for you to really do now that it’s like 20 degrees. I just turn my heater on, strip down to my boxers and lay in my sleeping bag for most of the day.”

Not the first Bengals fan

Jeff isn’t the first person to rough it for the Bengals - in 1991, sports radio reporter Dennis “Wildman” Walker spent 61 days on the station’s billboard. But that was part of a bet: WEBN had made the wager with a Denver radio station.

The Bengals lost to the Broncos, 45-41, and Walker had to pay up.

Jeff has cited Walker as an inspiration, and Walker even visited him on the roof to watch a game together, offering Jeff advice on how to maintain his sanity.

Another visitor: Bengals legend Ickey Woods. Woods gave Jeff an autographed jersey and watched a game with him.

“My husband isn’t really the type to get star-struck or anything like that, but I could tell that getting to meet one of his team’s best players meant a lot to him,” Chrissy said.

Chrissy doesn’t usually pray for Bengals wins — she reasons God has more important things to worry about — but she’s changed her mind.

“This process has gone through stages for me personally, because I can obviously visit him whenever I want to, but it’s just not the same as having him with me at our home,” she said. “Being the upstanding man that he is, I know that he’ll never break an agreement, so I’m just praying that the Bengals win so he can come back home.”
