Default Re: Cleveland and Cincy are images of each other

Now that we've gotten the about the differences?

Browns play on the north side of their city; Bengals play on the south side of their city

Browns play right off of a lake; Bengals play off of a river

Cleveland is a football town, much like Pittsburgh; Cincinnati is a baseball town

A good season by Bengals fan standards is a division title and playoff berth; A good season by Browns fan standards is .500

Cleveland is a largely Democratic city; Cincinnati is a largely Republican city

Cincinnati's glory days were the days of "The Big Red Machine" in the 1970's. Cleveland's glory days were the 80's Browns, 90's Tribe, and 00's Cavs, but, unlike "The Big Red Machine", none of these teams won a title.

Cleveland is cursed to be bad; Cincinnati is just plain bad.

For their collegiate sports, Cleveland turns to OSU; Cincinnati turns to UK.

Like Pittsburgh, Cincinnati's main bank is PNC; Cleveland's is KeyBank.

I grew up 30 minutes from Cleveland; now I live closer to Cincy.

Both have accents; Cleveland has a north accent (Cleveland, Buffalo, Detroit share this); Cincy has a southern accent from being so close to KY.

Cincinnati is known for producing professional baseball players (Kevin Youkilis, Ken Griffey Jr., Don Zimmer); Cleveland is known for producing professional football players (THE James Harrison, Joshua Cribbs, Jack Lambert, Lee Evans, Mike Vrabel (went to my high school, actually))

The Indians are still in a playoff hunt that the Reds are out of.

The Bengals have one the division twice since the Browns' expansion; The Browns have not won it.

Any others, please share.
