UC Orleans

| No TrackBacks
We're here in New Orleans for the 2010 Sugar Bowl and I'm wondering who's in Cincinnati? Why you ask and the answer is simple: You can't go anywhere in New Orleans without seeing Cincinnati representing in full force. Red, Black and combinations of the two dominate the fashion in the Big Easy and every hotel seems to have a majority Bearcat guest list. Notable names like Marty Brennaman, Dan Hoard and others are here to see and call the game and I don't have time or space to mention how many former players are here either. Just know New Orleans has been transformed and seems like UC Orleans. Bourbon Street is Short Vine and the Marriott on Canal is Fountain Square, serving as the host hotel. Current players are signing footballs, taking pictures and spending time with proud parents while trying to focus on Florida. I almost forgot its New Years Eve and another celebration will precede the Sugar Bowl and hopefully a second celebration will follow the game.

Regardless, its a nice environment, seeing the 'Nati take over the town and according to the valet attendants and the other important caretakers of the city, they've never seen anything like it in a while. Me either; I've been to Super Bowls and it reminds of the Bengals playing in Miami against the 49ers in that classic where fans covered every square inch of Miami and South Beach. All in all its a blessing to be here amongst the Bearcat faithful and the only thing left to do is cheer and watch the UC play football...their way. That's the only way the New Year should start.

That's the way I see it sitting in the Box Seat...
