Bengals fan vows to live on restaurant roof until 0-6 team wins

The Bengals are starting another week without a win. The team is now 0-6 after losing to the Baltimore Ravens.

It’s not just bad news for the Bengals but also for an Indiana business owner.

Jeff Lanham pledged to live on the roof of his restaurant, the Hog Rock Café in Milan until the Bengals win.

The die-hard fan made the promise before the Bengals met the Arizona Cardinals last week and hoped he would never make it to the roof.

After a second loss, this time against the Ravens, Lanham will now spend his second week on the roof.

It was just below 55 degrees in his tent Monday morning. Lanham says that’s much better than the 30-degree mornings he’s experienced this week.

Lanham isn’t the first to try out this stunt in the name of the Bengals.

Wildman Walker lived on a billboard back in 1991 for two months until the Bengals won a game.

Walker joined Lanham on his roof Sunday afternoon for the matchup against the Ravens. Walker passed along advice to Lanham about how to stay warm and persevere. He also brought Lanham a signed picture that pleaded not to break his 61-day record.

“I hope I don’t,” Lanham said.

Lanham is hoping for a win against Jacksonville this weekend and thinks it’s possible.

“Just start playing like a team, get our starters back, the guys that are injured get them back on the field,” Lanham said. “You know I think personally if they get back, they’ll win.”
