With just twenty four days left until the 2010 NFL season officially begins, you're probably getting pretty excited right? If not, then you should be! Let me tell you why:
For the first time in a long time the Bengals offer a lot of promise going into the season. They have a strong team and as long as everyone stays healthy I foresee a run for the Superbowl for sure. But that isn't the only reason to watch the Bengals this year. The inevitable drama that will unfold between the self-titled "Batman & Robin" duo, is definitely something to tune into.
Can one team really contain the personalities of two reality tv stars playing the same position? For Bengals fans everywhere, let's sure hope so!
ps- If you haven't been watching their VH1 shows, you really should be! Trust me.
Tim Tebow.For some of you this means being able to see your precious Timmy on the sidelines and telling everyone within earshot how wonderful he is and that he has a real future as an NFL star. You can relish in his jersey sales and celebrate every second of play time he receives.
And for everyone else? You get to remind those people that he is third string (for now anyway) and that his college antics aren't going to cut it in the NFL. You also get to root for his downfall and failure. Let's face it, who would you have to ridicule if he were no longer around? You can remind everyone that jersey sales do not equal talent and that being worshiped by "fans" does not make him a quality quaterback.
It is a win-win for all NFL viewers.
This season may very well be the last live football you get to watch for a while. So soak up every minute, every game, every play. It's looking more and more like a lockout by the NFL will be in order for what should be the 2011 season.
What is a lockout, you may ask? In a nut shell, the players want more money and the owners claim they don't make enough profit to give it to them. If they can't learn to compromise then we will all being paying the price. And while I'm sure there are some women out there rejoicing over the fact that they will have access to their husbands on Sundays and Monday Nights, I guarantee we will see more grown men weeping because of it.
Last, but definitely not least. For those of you ladies who do not enjoy the game but watch because of your boyfriend/husband/friend/brother/father/whatever, here are three very convincing reasons to start paying attention:
1. Brady Quinn. Quarterback for the Denver Broncos. All American good looks.
2. Mark Sanchez. Quarterback for the New York Jets. Gorgeous curly locks.
3. Chad Ochocinco. Wide Receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals. Killer smile (when not sporting his gold teeth).
These are just three of the many guys to keep a lookout for but we will get into that more as the season progresses. :)
So get excited ladies! There is so much to look forward to this season and I can't wait to share it all with you.
