That thought just occurred to me. I'm a little slow sometimes, and I've had my fill of the Ochocinco, Andre the Agent Killer, Bengals from OZ news.
I'm also contemplating drinking the Kool Aid. In fact, I have my R.Johnson jersey on at work today, ready to take on all comers (aka Steelers Fans).
What's the point of this post? Well, I think that first, as Bengals fans we have had to put up with a lot of BS over the past 20 years since being a playoff team. We put up with the Bungles jabs, and have to grit our teeth everytime we even SEE a Steelers fan. Just seeing that logo makes me angry.
Secondly, The preseason is upon us. And this preseason is different. We actually have reasons to have hope.
Don't get too worked up by the press. Don't feel you have to comment on every stupid tired Yahoo "article" about the Bengals. Seriously... F-em! Let it go.
I think it's good that we will be on Hard Knocks. It will keep Ocho occupied. He's already thinking about what he's going to say and how he's going to act. The more he does that the less he'll be in the way. I hope. The plus side is that maybe all of the OZ prison jokes that have started will get old for everyone and they'll watch the show and realize this team is pissed and they are going to go out and want to dispel the Bungles attitude once and for all.
And if they don't realize it then, They just might take notice during the season opener.
Lastly, that season opener is a loooong way away. Lighten up, Relax! Have some fun. I'd be happy with 8-8. Estatic with 10 - 6. Cloud 9 with a playoff game.
