    Anyone Going to the Bengals-Ravens Game?

    I'll be there. My sister and her husband live in N. Virginia and obtained 4 tickets through the Ravens ticket office before the season. They were planning on visiting for a week in the Dayton area and thought it would be fun to see an NFL game (and Paul Brown Stadium) while here. My sister (pregnant... due end of March) grew up in the Dayton area and is having a baby shower Saturday.

    My sister likes the Bengals... although her and her husband are big Redskins fans. For some reason she has liked the Skins since she was a little kid. However, she had to grow up in a household that are diehard Bengals fans (my father and I) and has always liked them.

    Since the Dayton area will not get the game on TV (NFL Network... boo!), the timing worked out well for this Bengals diehard. I just hope the expected rain does not happen. A must win for the Bengals... lose and the Ravens wrap up the division.

    WHO DEY!!
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    I'll be there in the usual spots; Lot D for tailgating then on to section 312. I'm hoping that if we do get rain we also get a little breeze from the west. That usually tends to bring the canopy into play and keep us a little dryer. I have thought ahead and taken a vacation day on Friday so I can stay home and nurse the double pneumonia that I'll get.

    The game should be a great one; strong offense vs. strong defense. If they don't hand the Ravens 14 early points like in Baltimore and the Bengals D can just have a solid game, I like the Bengals in a close one.

    I will be there. I have season tickets in section 219. The latest weather forecast for tomorrow night is calling for 1 to 2 inches of rain in Cincinnati.

    I could care less about either one of the two teams. But Cris Collinsworth ought to be worth the price of admission.

    I'll be there. kinda. I'll be leaving work in the Enquirer building about the time the drinking in the parking lots hits a crescendo...approx 630p. The lots after home games are nasty...wing bones and cig butts strewn about. Nasty.

    Re: Anyone Going to the Bengals-Ravens Game?

    I'm in Cleveland so I won't be at the game... and I have Time-Warner so the NFL Network on my television is out... Luckily, I just got a new Sprint phone with broadband television and the NFL Network is one of the channels carried live on a 24-hr. basis...

    LOL So I'll be watching the game... on my cellphone! haha

    Re: Anyone Going to the Bengals-Ravens Game?

    I showed up at Rudy's Pub & Grill about 5 minutes after kickoff not knowing what to expect. I walked in and the place was packed with Bengals jerseys!!! Not a Ravens jersey in sight! Who knew!! In southern California I'd expect to see a large variety of fans from every team but to see that many Bengals backers and so few Ravens fans really caught me by surprise. (There were two couples wearing Ravens jerseys walk in during the second quarter---they sat in the corner and didn't say much all night )

    Nice game. But who kidnapped the Bengals defensive team and substituted the Chicago Bears?

    Re: Anyone Going to the Bengals-Ravens Game?

    What a great game. I would have hated to sit through that and have them end up losing...I've done that enough through the years.

    We stayed pretty dry, all things considered. We started of with waaaaay too many layers of clothing but had the foresight to bring a trashbag in for easy storage. My throat is a little raw and my head a bit fuzzy (I wasn't the DD last night ) and I'm glad I worked last Friday and took the day off today!

    I'll be at Rudy's Pub & Grill in Newport (Beach ). About 30 TV screens and, while the food is terrific there, I'd rather watch this game in the comfort of my own living room. I have Time-Warner Cable (now that they took over bankrupt Adelphia) and they don't carry the NFL Network here either. To a large degree I side with the cable company though. The NFL sells their games to various networks but then goes and creates a seperate block of games that it wants the cable networks to pay extra for. Cable networks paying extra for those games equals cable networks charging the fan more money. Greedy, greedy, greedy NFL.
