The city of Cincinnati has truly entered a new and young era across all sports.
The Bengals are true contenders with Joe Burrow, Ja’Marr Chase, and others... Plus, the Reds’ future is bright and shining with Matt McLain, Elly De La Cruz (hit his first MLB homer tonight), and Jonathan India.
And of course, FC Cincinnati is sitting on top of the Eastern Conference.
