    Read it on the Bengals board. That is pretty surprising to me. They're in the middle of a playoff run, and with a good team coming to town, I would have expected them to sell out.

    But, it's just fine with me if this turns out like the JAX and TB games (minus the injuries).

    We need to be so grateful we don't face that in Houston anymore. I can remember the old Oiler days and worrying about it each week.

    Surprising, since Cincinnati is the largest city in Northern Kentucky.

    I missed that trivial pursuit question once. What state is the Cincinnati airport in?

    The worst part of this is the NFL blackout rule is lifted if a sell-out occurs 72 hours before kickoff. Counting back from Sunday at Noon (1:00 P.M. in Cincy), that means they have until Noon (again, our time) Thursday to achieve a sell out, and they're so far away, they're not even trying to get it lifted. And this is for a game between two teams that are currently playoff teams. Even Jacksonville seems to always take it right down to the wire - and sometimes succeed.

    Pretty sad.

    Cincy fans are bad, they didn't really support the Reds last year and for a while they were doing good.

    That's a damn shame. I like all of the opposing fans to see their team dismantled by a big group of Texans.

    Can't wrap my head around it. Maybe the struggling OH economy might be a factor?

    Cinci and Miami are selling less than Jax? I wonder if that is ONLY because of the tarps.

    YUP!! We had to fly into Louisville (although Lexington is about the same distance) and drive there. We stayed in Covington KY (across the river from the Stadium).

    *************************

    Not surprising that they are having trouble selling out. This was what it was like whenever I was there. The entire top of the stadium was empty like you see here:

    For the record (and Yankee already knows my feelings on this), Skyline Chili and White Castle are horribly disgusting.

    In the same way that you "don't fruit the beer" You do not pour chili over pasta! *GAGS*
