I thought I'd share a slice of life here in Cincy. Today as I was on my way to watch the game I came across 3 Bengal fans....adult men. They started giving me a "good natured" hard time about being a Steeler fan and how poorly my team is doing this year. I assured them that it was just a temporary setback and that I comfort myself with our 5 Lombardi's....that they shouldn't be too jealous as it can do ugly things to people. The response.......what's a Lombardi????? :jawdrop: When I realized that he wasn't kidding, I said "Yeah....that's what the Bengals haven't figured out yet either!!!" :toofunny:

After the game I was at a checkout counter in a local store. The salesperson asked about the button I was wearing on my jacket. It's a Polomalu button with a "tail" on it that is supposed to look like his hair. She asked if it was real. I just smiled assuming that she was kidding. She said "It is? How did you get it? How cool! That must have cost alot! Wow...you must be a real fan! Can I touch it?" She was deadpan serious! Stillers, who was with me, told her about the game where Troy got pulled down by the hair and I just said how amazing it is what you can get on EBay!!!! She was in awe. The guy in line in front of us literally rolled into the parking lot laughing! :grin:

The next time some jabroni Bungles fan gets on here and runs his mouth, we should point them to this thread and Flood's post as a shining example of the bandwagon that is "Bengal Nation" :toofunny: :toofunny:

Just to clear up some common Bengal misconceptions:

1) a Lombardi does no resurface ice rinks....that would be a "zamboni"

2) a Lombardi is not a type of rum....that would be "Bacardi"

3) a Lombardi is not a baked Italian sandwich...that would be "stromboli"

It is the trophy that you get if you are the best team in the NFL and win the Superbowl.
