Reds Set Up for Continued Success

0 Comments · Wednesday, September 26, 2012
After going more than a decade without a proper postseason, the Reds are making October a normal part of the season, last week clinching their second postseason berth in three years. And the way the roster has been built, there should be more to come.

Free Who Dey This Weekend!

Bengals scrimmages at Paul Brown Stadium are free and open to the public

Well, it’s August and to sports fans — real sports fans — that means one thing: preseason football.  The Bengals preseason training camp, for the first time ever, is being held at Paul Brown Stadium and all practices and scrimmages are free and open to the public. Capacity shouldn’t be an issue this year, unlike their former Georgetown, Ky., location which, let’s face it, sat less people than most middle school lacrosse games.  If you’re really jonesing for a Bengals fix, check out the Intrasquad Scrimmage 3 p.m. Saturday, which features the most full contact of camp.   Sunday at 6 is the Black/White mock game (take it easy Kathy Wilson, it’s not what you think), where they split the team into two squads who play a minimal-contact game against one another. They keep score in that one, which, depending on what side A.J. Green is on, could be a good thing.   Speaking of wide receivers, Jordan Shipley’s back from that pesky ACL tear that sidelined him for all of last season. The talented Mr. Shipley will be running routes alongside Brandon Tate, Antonio Bryant (yes, that Antonio Bryant) and third-round-pick Mohamed Sanu.  Some other new faces worth checking out are former Patriots running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis and rookie tight end Orson Charles.  Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait on buying tickets to Kirkpatrick Island (wow, that really doesn’t have a ring to it) as the new cornerback, and first-overall draft pick, is missing most of camp due to an undisclosed leg injury.  So check out the 2012 Bengals while it’s still free. It’s the best chance you’ll have to dip your toe in the water before deciding if you want to sell a kidney to afford those Party Deck tickets. For the complete preseason schedule, click here.

If you want to buy the jersey of the Bengals’ best player, you can’t just head down to Dick’s and pick up his jersey off of a rack.   

Bengals Preseason: Many Questions, Many Options

0 Comments · Wednesday, July 25, 2012
Looking for their first back-to-back winning seasons and consecutive playoff appearances in 20 years, the Bengals enter the 2012 season with the swagger of a Pro Bowl quarterback-receiver tandem that could be the backbone of a winning foundation for years to come (haven’t we heard that before?).   

Recent Bengals Moves Look Surprisingly Solid

0 Comments · Wednesday, June 13, 2012
Are we living in some kind of strange new world where down is up, dogs live in harmony with cats and the Bengals are a well-run organization? Because it appears that the Bengals, long the butt of jokes not just here in Cincinnati, but nationwide, are making — gasp — sensible and shrewd decisions.  

One Last Despicable Act

1 Comment · Wednesday, February 2, 2011
How a person reacts in adversity reveals a lot about his or her character. In a move reminiscent of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, Cincinnati City Councilman Jeff Berding announced last week that he was resigning soon, despite having another year left on his term. As the reason for his departure, Berding said he needed to focus on his day job as sales and marketing director for the Cincinnati Bengals. Berding’s given reason probably is true, but it’s only part of the story.  

Nov. 24-30: Worst Week Ever!

It's 9 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 28: Do you know where your rifle is? If you don't then it's time to mount up because Ohio's nine-day deer hunting season runs Monday through Saturday and after that you only have two more days this year to shoot one of those bastards.  

Dhani Jones [Cincinnati Bengals linebacker/Bowtie Café owner]

As linebacker for and defensive captain of the Cincinnati Bengals, Dhani Jones’ Sundays are pretty much booked up for the next few months. But Dhani isn’t just an autumn visitor to the area. His local ties just got stronger with the opening of the Bowtie Café, a Mount Adams eatery dedicated to coffee, conversation and cocktails.  

Reversal of Fortune

The future is no longer bleak for Cincinnati football, college or pro

It takes a special human being to be a Cincinnati sports fan. Unless you're a masochist, the better part of the last two decades has not only been disappointing but also profoundly embarrassing. The demise of hometown hero Pete Rose was just the opening salvo in a decline that's only now beginning to show signs of relief.  

Berding Gets Blacked Out

2 Comments · Wednesday, September 16, 2009
It was an all-around bad week recently for Cincinnati City Councilman Jeff Berding. He was unendorsed by the local Democratic Party after a long history of opposing initiatives proposed by Mayor Mark Mallory and other Democrats on City Council and criticizing them on radio and TV. But even his day job as the Cincinnati Bengals' sales director caused him grief. It looked like the Bengals' regular season-opener wouldn't be broadcast live on TV because the game at Paul Brown Stadium wasn't a sellout. Fortunately, at the last minute the team, WKRC-TV (Channel 12) and Kroger stepped in to buy the remaining 5,000 tickets.
