I know I am a couple of nights past on posting this, but the reality took a day or so to set in. It has been a long, long time since this city could say "Who Dey" and really mean it! This is a new time in city. The Cincinnati Bengals are back baby! It's a great thing. This past Sunday was a statement game for this Bengals team. The road to the AFC North is now going to go through Cincinnati. Prepare for it to stay that way for years to come! The Bungles of old are no longer. This is the Bengals ... the team with either the best or second best offense in the NFL. No defense has figured out how to stop them. In the past three weeks, 3 of the NFL's Top 10 Defenses have allowed 117 points (avg. 39/game) to the Bengals offense. And, let's be real ... if the Bengals wouldn't have gotten bored with the Ravens, that beatdown would have been much worse. It is written. The Bengals have arrived. In Marvin We Trust!
Small update on me. Since getting that off my chest and not keeping it to myself and letting it eat away at me, I have been in a better mood. I have decided to go back and get my MBA, but have to bust my ass over the next few weeks to get ready for the GMAT and apply by Jan. 9. The school of my choice will still accept applicants during that first week. So, it is a great goal to have and one that I'm excited about. I don't know what it is about school, but the interest is there for me to continue my education. Funny ... when in school all you want to do is work ... when in work all you want to do is go back to school.
Also, I'm seeking outlets to recapture my love of sports writing. Back in high school, I won several awards for my sports reporting for the high school paper in state competitions. It is something that I haven't done in a while, so I will have to get back into that frame of mind, but again, something to look forward to. So, I have that going for me.
