Hell has frozen over.
Going up next weekend to see the regular season home finale, should be something special.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
Who-Dey, Who-Dey, Who-De think gonna beat dem Bengals?
Do Cincy proud Marvin and put this club in the Super Bowl!
Here's to Marvin, Chad, Carson, Rudi, Deltha, everyone on the squad, and most importantly the Bengals fans! Its been a hellalish 15 years, but this year has made it worth being a Bengals fan!
All Bengals fans should send a Christmas card to the man most responsible for your division title.......Tommy Maddox.

Go start your own "Squealer Apologist" thread, then you can come up with as many excuses as you want and have them all in one place for handy future reference.
The division title is nice, but I am not going to be satisified unless they secure the #2 seed, and that is going to require a win at Kansas City. The Chiefs NEVER lose at home in December...NEVER. Technically, though, the game won't be in December. It will be January 1, so maybe they have a shot. Oh, and San Diego has to beat Denver on New Year's Eve, as well.
The difference between the #2 and the #3 seeds will be night and day. The #3 seed will have to host the Steelers and then travel to the home of the #2 seed. The #2 seed will take the first week off and then host the second-round game. Big difference, there!
Just to put this season in perspective, this is only the fourth time in the 38-season history of the franchise that the team has won as many as 11 games. Many fans remember the 1981 (12-4) and 1988 (12-4) teams, but the 1975 team (11-3) was pretty good, as well.
For what it's worth, ESPN SportsCenter said last night that this was only the third 11-win season in the team's history. I guess ESPN refuses to accept that sports were actually played before the Bristol network came into existence in 1979.
Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.
Those will be very large tears splashing in your beer next week when Clownie dumps the Squealers to effectively knock them out of the playoffs.Originally Posted by Revering4Blue
Can't win with 'em
Can't win without 'em
The Cleveland/Pittsburgh game will indeed be very interesting. That rivalry is definately bigger than anything the Bengals have had with the Steelers. What better way for the Browns to put an exclaimation point on Romeo's first season than to nock the Steelers out of the playoffs!Originally Posted by traderumor
I can hear GAC suiting up already!
Well, my dirty little secret is that I am a Steelers fan. And I would like to say congrats on your season this year, you deserve it. Your team has arrived and the AFC North is going to be one heck of a ride for a number of years to come, well done Bengals and good luck the rest of the way!
Benzinger backing and calling! And the 1990 world championship series belongs to the Cincinnati Reds!
