I always love it when people post about their trips to the games because, until last night, I had never been to one. I'll keep it short and sweet
-the biggest point I want to make is that Cowboys fans OWN Cincinnati. There was never a moment anywhere I went that it wasn't at LEAST 2:1 cowboys to bengals fans. The bar we went to before hand it had to be at least 3:1. The walk to the stadium it was at least 2:1. Walking through the stadium it was 3:1 and in the section I was sitting it was about 2:1.
I heard at a minimum 10 (Stopped counting after that) bengals fans say "where in the heck did all these cowboys fans come from!". Then most of them would say, well they are americas team.
-The one interesting thing during pregame warm-ups that I saw was Vickers went by himself into the end zone and was jumping around and going crazy. Thought that was weird
-Not sure if anyone has addressed it already but at one point ware was on the sidelines for a while holding his arm. He later went back in so not sure if it is serious.
-In the beginning there were a couple times that witten and dez were both wide open down field but tony checked it down or threw it to an underneath receiver even though there was not much pressure. I'm not sure if he was missing them on his reads or if that was the plan from the beginning because they were afraid of the potential pressure cinci could bring.
-Now just some observations about going to your first game (for those who never have).
-The game seems to move so fast. I felt like I couldn't look away without missing something. I think having commercials really makes it feel longer
-You really miss the commentary and displays that the broadcasts put up. Also, if someone is injured they don't tell you who is on the ground (unless its a bengal then of course they show the player's profile on the screen.)
-Lastly, 2 of the maybe 7 bengals fans in my section were talking smack the ENTIRE game. No threats or anything like that, just non-stop smack talk about the cowboys. I admittedly was getting very very angry so every time the cowboys got a first down I jumped up and screamed as loud as possible to rub it in their faces
What really surprised me was after the game he said hey and shook my hand and said good game.
