    Going to the Bengals game Sunday......Get ready for pat-downs!!

    Well, they're back.

    The Bengals announced this morning that all fans entering Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday for the Steelers game will be patted down.

    I'll hide and let the natives commence restlessness.....

    I really dislike this "for show" security stuff to give the illusion of safety.
    If terrorists want to blow up Paul Brown stadium, they will. Patting down everyone isn't going to prevent it.

    I think it has to do more with alcohol than bombs.

    They don't want people to bring outside boos in.

    I read in an article that Chad Johnson was considering a new celebration after a TD. He would pretend to pat down the ref when he raises his hands to signal touchdown. That sounds funny as heck, but I fear that something like that could lead to a penalty. I would still laugh my head off if he did it, as long as it didn't cost us the game.

    He'd get tossed out of the game for touching the ref

    I'd like to see it

    Ok, I didn't know that. Glad to see it was for something even more important than security Can't be cutting into beer profits at the stadium.

    Is Danny Graves going to be in attendance?

    Out of curiosity, when did the ridiculous overpricing of beer at the stadium/ballpark/concert venue begin? Is the justification solely to avoid drunkenness at the game and unsafe driving afterwards, with the added benefit that the owners can reap absolutely ridiculous profits?

    I can't imagine Chris von der Ahe was squeezing the 'cranks' back in the days of the Beer and Whisky League.

    Enquirer had some pretty spot on letters today, in my opinion.

    It isn't about alcohol.

    That's what I've been thinking since they announced it. People have been bringing in booze to football games since Day 1 and they are cracking down on it now? Doesn't make sense.

    I was at the game yesterday and the pat downs they are doing won't find anything. Basically you had to raise both arms up and they patted both sides once. So unless you had something strapped under you arm they would not find it with that pat down.
