Bengals Early Bird Special

Good morning everyone! I hope your week has started off on the right foot. So did anyone feel that earthquake today? I sure as hell didn't notice it, but apparently some of friends who live within eight miles of me did.

An elementary teachers starts a new job at a school in Pittsburgh and right away wants to make a good impression. On her first day of class she explained that she is a Steelers fan. She asks the class to raise their hands if they are also Steelers fans. Everyone in the class raised their hand except for one little boy.

The teacher looks at the boy with surprise and says: "Timmy, why didn't you raise your hand?"

"Because I'm not a Steelers fan," he replied.

The teacher still overcome by shock, asked, "Well if you're not a Steelers fan, then who do you support?"

"I'm a Bengals fan and proud of it," Timmy replied.

The teacher couldn't believe what they were hearing. "Timmy, why are you a Bengals fan?"

"Because my mom and dad are from Cincinnati and both of them are a Bengals fan. So I'm a Bengals fan too!" he replied.

"Well," said the teacher, in an obviously annoyed tone, that's no reason for you to be a Bengals fan. You don't have to be just like your parents all of the time. What if your mom played with bones and your dad was a dog catcher and an alcoholic? Then what would you be?"

"Then I'd be a Browns fan," Timmy said.

Alright here is a look at what you may have missed or overlooked from Tuesday.
