Bengals Get Blown Away

Michelle and I went to Cincinnati yesterday to watch the Bengals. They were pushed around the field all day long by both the Titans and the wind. We had a good time anyway and were thankful that we didn't get hurt by flying debris during the game. I heard on a Cincinnati television station that winds were gusting in the area up to 74 mph.

After the game, we returned to the Bengalmobile and found uprooted trees and broken limbs everywhere. Luckily, our vehicle escaped damage. We had to alter our route back to I-75 due to blocked streets. We stopped in Florence at Shakey's Pub & Grub hoping to have a fish sandwich (voted several years as Cincy's best fish sandwich) and to watch some of the Jets game. Unfortunately, Shakey's and all restaurants in the area were closed due to downed power lines.

Despite the Bengals' loss and missing out on the fish sandwich, Michelle and I had a great day together. We hope the football team improves, but our Sunday afternoon fun times together are always a winner.
