Every year, thousands of people in the Cincinnati and surrounding areas gather downtown to celebrate their beloved Cincinnati Bengals. They cheer, paint their faces, eat good food, get drunk before 10 am, and they do this because its tradition. Yes, it is tradition to get drunk before 10 am for most people. Oh yes, tailgating is one of America’s most cherished “get hype” activities. Only in America will you see people play beer pong before they had their breakfast; only in America will you see women get lifted in the air to drink out of beer kegs; only in America will people by old school buses and decorate them in their favorite football team colors; and only in America will you see people of all races and denominations doing the Cupid Shuffle in the middle of the parking lot. Oh what great country we live in and God Bless NFL football!
Longworth Hall is where the craziest tailgating events happen. You are liable to see anything and everything before noon. I remember last year when my family and I started tailgating and what I was amazed with the most was the food people bring to these events! You will see everything from New York Strip steaks to tacos. That is the one thing I love about football season, the food. I love “man food”!
People really get into the tailgating business around these parts. You are liable to see buses, vans, and I even saw a hearse decorate in Bengals colors. It gets nuts!
I never seen this part of the parking lot at Longworth until this past weekend. It is a huge parking lot! I kind of like it because there is a section of the parking lot that looks a lot like ruins of a different time. It is pretty funky and weird at the same time.
“WE GOT SPIRIT YES WE DO! WE GOT SPIRIT, HOW ABOUT YOU?”
Not only does the Bengals know how to have a good time, but so does Browns fans. But there fun is a little different. Wouldn’t you agree?
Do you see what I mean? Oh wait! That is a Bengal fan!
WHO IS THAT GIRL BACKING THAT THANG UP?!?! That be….little ole me :-).
I love the black and white picture. I don’t know what those weird looking birds are.
I don’t know what those yummy things are. Someone made them and was giving them out.
But I do know what that large silver cylinder thing is!!!!
So this was a game that I played. You had to take roll an empty keg down a lane to knock over the bowling pins. This guy on the right was the MC. I was the only girl that hit the pins! But, if you didn’t hit the pins this would happen to you……..
Of course there was a lot of good food. If you live in a city of a NFL team, you have got to go to a tailgating event. Even if your not into football that much. You still have to go to a party. It is “stupid fun” yo.
