The Bengals, that’s who. Sure, it’s happening at the expense of sub-.500 teams. But I DON’T CARE! Bengals have the greatest fans on earth! Prove it, you say? Look at the story of this JACKASS:
The Packers, trailing 21-14, reached the Bengals 28 with 23 seconds left. Brett Favre took the ensuing snap, but whistles quickly blew after the fan came onto the field. The unidentified man took the football out of Favre’s hand and ran about 50 yards before being tackled by security guards and removed from the field.
Favre was sacked on the next play, and on the final snap, he completed an illegal pass beyond the line of scrimmage that came up short.
Neither Favre nor Packers coach Mike Sherman blamed Green Bay’s loss on the fan.

I mean, what an IDIOT! (but thanks for helping us win.)
At any rate, this feeling of Euphoria will last at least into the playoffs, because this year, we’re going. Not only that, but Chicago is number one as well! Yes, their division is astoundingly bad, but they’re working with broken parts over there and making miracles happen. So the NFL is interesting for me for the first time in a loooong time.
The car: One week and no news. It’s all been paperwork and waiting and buses, although I am gathering some interesting stories from people and seeing things you wouldn’t see from the comfort of a car. Also, I’ve discovered that biking to work takes approximately ten minutes longer than driving. So even when I have wheels again, I may still bike until the weather gets too hot for it.
Hit and Run is off to two different agents as of Friday, so keep your fingers crossed and hope for the best!
