Steel City Shutdown

About eight months ago the citizens of a fellow Ohio River city rioted in the streets after their beloved Steelers claimed their sixth super bowl trophy, the most in NFL history.

The Cincinnati Bengals would follow up by beginning their season with a sold out crowd (thanks only to Krogers) and an embarrassing loss to Denver.

-Thanks Krogers, cause Mike Brown's too cheap.

The Bengals traveled to Green Bay, Wisconsin and defeated the Packers while the Steelers were mauled by the Bears in Chicago. Admit it, everyone was skeptical when they woke up today. The defending Super Bowl champs were coming off of a loss, the Bengals hadn't shown much promise this year and Ben Rothlisberger had never been defeated in Paul Brown Stadium. Never been defeated that is...until today.


"The Bengals have defeated the defending Super Bowl Champions!"

Next we get to take on Cleveland and even those who live in Cleveland know "Cleveland Sucks!"

  1. I thought Mike Brown (or someone in the Brown/Blackburn family) bought some of the tickets, as well as Kroger and WKRC-TV (Channel 12) - which were all given out as charity.

    But yeah, this win was excellent. I still consider them 3-0. It's gonna be a helluva season!

    ...which is obviously commendable.
