If you guys are familiar with Geoff "Butch" Hobson, the main writer on bengals.com . . . He's from Boston and has the accent to prove it. When the Bengals had Jon Kitna, Butchie, of course, called him "Kittner". But then, in 2003, the Bengals also signed, as a backup QB, Kurt Kittner, whom Hobson actually called "Kitna". I could never figure that one out, but somehow he called Kitna Kittner and Kittner Kitna. It was just a trifle confusing.
