Here we go again.
Opening day for both Ohio teams and both end in major disappointments (catastrophe, maybe?).
I must admit though, I feel numb to the feeling I usually have in my chest. You know the feeling. You really thought that the Bengals would come out strong. That Carson Palmer, our poster boy, would finally show the world that he's worthy of the headlines that Brady, Manning, and Romo get.
Those high hopes were quickly disposed of. I hate starting the season like this. I often wonder what it would be like to root for a team like the Cowboys or the Patriots, who've both had great success over the last several years.
Why doesn't success like this come to Ohio? The last Ohio team in the Super Bowl was the Bengals, and that was almost two decades ago! The drought has been long and hard. The fans are begging for a drink.
Are you listening Cleveland? Can you hear us Cincinnati?
We are fans, we are true fans, and you're hurting us to our very being. We're not asking for much. Bring back the days of Boomer and Bernie, and Woods and Mack. Put our state back on the pro-football map, and let's have a great season with both teams in the playoffs!
