It was one of my favorite seasonal bits done by the legendary Gary Burbank. The ongoing saga of Cincinnati's sorry excuse for an NFL franchise. Since it's last airing on The Big One, let us consider what has changed.
Barrack Obama was sworn in as the 44th President. (Today, he is being sworn at on an almost daily basis) Real unemployment has swollen to double digits country wide. We are spending trillions of dollars that we simply don't have on all kinds of ridiculousness like street cars, a health care debacle, extended jobless benefits and shovel-ready projects that have yet to put the first shovel to work. Lindsay Lohan has been in and out of rehab more than anyone has been in and out of Jenna Jameson. The Reds won the NL Central division and made the playoffs for the first time in 15 years. Everything has changed! Except the Bengals.
Mike Brown still runs(ruins) the team like it's an insurance company. Marvin Lewis still talks in circles and makes excuses for himself and his overpaid divas. The team still struggles to sell out home games. Carson Palmer still hasn't all that potential and 'elite' quarterback status. Bengals fans still are unfulfilled, bitter, and always expectant of the worst.
It's nice to know some things never change. By the way, we still miss you Garish.
