Losing Poorly

Its actually funny reading some of the comments and even the media coverage of the game. You would think the Bengals were the only team on the field and they lost not because they met a team that had the talent and game plan to win, but lost the game on their own. The bengals …

One & Done

I don’t usually rub it in people’s faces… but this goes out to the frankie ass chiefs fans (cough cough Amy B) who believed the hype… ONE and DONE…
