Good morning everyone! It's almost officially the weekend. And that means relaxation, beer, baseball, yard work, more beer, and more sports. Plus more beer. I swear I'm not an alcoholic.
Anyways, onto a different topic.
I think it's time for football to start. Am I the only person who feels that way? I already know that answer. That's a big fat: NO.
I wish the lockout would end already. It seems as if both parties are nearing a deal and that it's only a matter of weeks until this nightmare is resolved. Hopefully, for our sake the lockout will be resolved sooner than that and a new collective bargaining agreement can be reached.
I want to see some player transactions happen. I want to know what the Bengals intend to do. Are they intending to retain Johnathan Joseph and Cedric Benson? Or both? Or neither one of them and instead go in an entirely new direction?
Will Mike Brown finally decide to hire a general manager or will he instead decide to investment more of his time in finding new ways to anger the fan base or organization itself? Will anymore players decide they want out of Cincinnati or will other players from outside the organization decide it isn't as bad in Cincinnati as originally speculated.
Will the Bengals be able to sign A.J. Green and Andy Dalton to contracts right away or is there going to be a major holdup during the negotiation process?
I hope that the lockout ends sooner rather than later so we can finally see and follow some new action instead of the same old stories involving Chad Ochocinco and Carson Palmer.
Alright here's a look at what you may have missed or overlooked from Thursday.
- A case was made for former Bengals defensive back Greg Bright for being the best player to wear the number 47 for the Bengals all-time.
- Last night our weekly podcast took place. Take a break from whatever it is you're doing and listen to the latest podcast.
- During the Bengals game against the Falcons last season, it was one of the most memorable third quarters for the Bengals that season. End result was rather disappointing though.
- Nnamdi Asomugha will undoubtedly set the market for free agent cornerbacks. Let's hope he signs for a microscopic deal. If not then it might be bye bye J.J.
- The Bengals 24-21 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was probably the easiest way to sum up the Bengals 2010 season in a nutshell. Don't remind me of that game or that season. One word to sum it all up: pathetic.
- Georgetown is preparing with business in mind as usual. Hopefully there will be a training camp and preseason for football.
- Flashback to the Bengals vs. Ravens game where the Bengals forced four interceptions to lead the team to a 15-10 victory over one of their rivals.
