Bring on the Bearcats. As noted, T3I has officially begun the End of GRob countdown. Cheer up Cuse fans, the end is in sight. Hoops is starting up and soon this agony of a season will be done. With that in mind, T3I presents all things Cincinnati, Bear and Cat:
WKRP in Cincinnati: Big thumbs up. Besides having one of the greatest TV themes of all-time, this classic from the 70's and 80's featured such strong characters as Dr. Johnny Fever, Les Nessman, and Herb Tarlek. It also fueled the Ginger-Mary Ann debate of the Reagan era: Jennifer or Bailey? Nothing says Happy Thanksgiving like a free turkey:
Cincinnati vs. Xavier: Thumbs up to one of the better lesser-known rivalries in college hoops.
Cincinnati Bengals: Thumbs down, although Ickey Woods does score points in our book for the shuffle. Those uni's are now hideous, the 80's version were actually tolerable.
Bearclaws: Thumbs up. Let's be honest, it's pretty tough to screw up breakfast pastries.
CAT: Thumbs up to this American original.
Big Red Machine: Thumbs up, just beacause I'd love to get Pete Rose and Johnny Bench in the same room together. Now that would be fun.
Care Bears: Thumbs down to these products of the 1980's.
Kodiak Bears: Thumbs down to any creature 10 feet tall and weighing 1500 lbs.
The Bad News Bears: Thumbs up to the Walther Matheau original.
BJ and the Bear: Thumbs down. Any guy who spends that much time with a chimp....well, there's issues there. "BJ" Greg Evigan would parlay this run into his successful stint on "My Two Dads".
Nippert Stadium: Thumbs up to one of the oldest venues in college football.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I'm thankful for a 7:15 kickoff this weekend....more time to tailgate.
