1990. You all remember it. A great year indeed.
Admit it, you were all jamming out to these guys on your Walkman...
And when it came to Christmas movies, I'll be damned if I didn't go see this movie about 5 times in the theater that year.
In 1990, this team was celebrating its first World Championship since 1976. Don't even bother to pretend that you weren't sporting some Chris Sabo rec specs in your little league games.
1990 also happened to be the last time the Cincinnati Bengals were playoff bound. Since then, Bengal Nation has suffered through the Dave Shula era, the Klingler debacle, the Ki-Jana ACL tear, Bruce Coslet's whining, Akili Smith scoring a 9 on his Wonderlic test before getting drafted 3rd overall, Corey Dillon throwing his shoulder pads into the stands, and Dick LeBeau's "we tried hard" post game press conferences. 15 long years of ineptitude as a national laughingstock.
Until now. The wait is finally over. Thanks to the Black Jesus himself and the Golden Arm of Carson Palmer, the Bengals are offically playoff bound. 2005 AFC North Champions. Let the celebration begin!
If you want to celebrate Bengals style, feel free to tune in to Cincy native Bootsy Collins' new Bengals theme song.

Who Dey! Who Dey! Who Dey think gonna beat them Bengals!
