22: Yadier Molina is the Greatest Catcher of All Times.

cinawesome

In this episode of the CinAwesome Podcast, we discuss Yadier Molina and Tony Larussa’s World Series win and what that means for Reds fans.  We discuss the Bengals’ win over the Seattle Seahawks, their EASY schedule, and the fact that the game appeared to be an infomercial for Pete Carroll’s hair products.  We touch on the apparent news that TJ Houshmandzadeh is going to be an Oakland Raider, and some other sports stuff.  We also discuss the Stacy Schuler SexyTime Trial ™ and point out yet another wonderful (or terrible, depending upon your perspective) Fox 19 flub.… Read the rest

One from the “Holy Shit” File: Mike Brown Briefly Makes Sense

People are already saying that the just-now-happened Carson Palmer trade to Oakland was the doing of Hue Jackson and Marvin Lewis, but whatever.  Mike Brown made sense here.  I WONDER WHAT TRICKERY HAD TO BE UNDERTAKEN TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN!

Speaking of trickery, here’s an ESPN oopsie:

Either way, we can consider our long national nightmare over.  Carson Palmer is apparently gone from the Bengals, and we can now consider them the team that SWINDLED a team still reeling from the recent death of its owner.  Of course, the extra first-rounder might be worth it.… Read the rest

Breaking News! Bengals Fire Bratkowski. Awesomeness?

Bengals fans want heads to roll at Paul Brown Stadium.  Rightfully so.  And this afternoon came word that the first, and so far only, head to roll belongs to offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski.

Somehow this comes as a surprise.

True, the Bengals have been awful, the players have publicly called out Bratkowski, and then the whole Marvin Lewis-Brad Childress meeting thing.  But it was starting to seem like nothing would change.  Especially with Mike Brown acting as though they’re a matter of inches away from being a respectable franchise.  You know.  Like the ones that go to the Super Bowl and stuff.

Pros

  • Finally.  Something is changing.
  • The pass play on third-and-one may finally die.

Cons

  • Ever feel like they’re just throwing us a bone?
  • Will no longer be able to pass ourselves off as psychics by predicting every play on offense.
  • Unless they bring in Vince Lombardi, how much can things really improve?

In this episode of the CinAwesome Podcast of Awesomeness, Jason and Ed cover the last couple weeks of polls, discuss Ed’s trip to Orlando and all the Disney awesomeness it has to offer, the Enquirer’s apparent humor when it comes to writing murder-related headlines, and the Carson Palmer thing.  Yes, that Carson Palmer thing.  NO, NOT *THAT* CARSON PALMER THING, YOU SICKASS.

We hope you enjoy the show–why not stop in and rate/write a review of the show at iTunes?  If you do, we’ll talk about how great you are on the next ‘cast.… Read the rest

Late-Season Garbage/Spoiler Wins: Awesome or Baseball’s Coming Soon?

Look, none of us saw the Bengals apparently play well yesterday, and the chances are pretty dang good that we didn’t really care, either.  I know that I didn’t.  Generally speaking, anyway.  Nonetheless, the Bengals knocked the Chargers out of the playoffs or whatever and YAWN, WHATEVER. PITCHERS AND CATCHERS REPORT IN LESS THAN 50 DAYS.

Pros:

  • A win is a win
  • Yay, it’s a Cincinnati thing that one some thing yesterday.
  • WHEN WE DON’T WATCH, THEY DOOS GOOD.

Cons:

  • A garbage win only counts as 1/4 of an actual, important win.
  • Mike Brown.
  • Also, Mike Brown.

Terrell Owens: Awesome or Meh?

It’s no secret that the Bengals are a big steamy one right now.  They probably had the talent to do well at the beginning of the year, but blah blah blah and, well, you’ve seen it.  No sense in reliving it here.

Terrell Owens, he of the loud mouth and the one year deal, confirmed something Cincinnati has been saying for years.  Check this for both atrocious grammar and REAL MUHFUGGIN TAWLK:

I think there is underachieving you know from the top down.  You start off with the owner, you start off with the coaches and obviously we as players. We are a product of what the coaches are doing, are coaching us throughout the course of the week. Of course we have to go out there and play the game but in order for us to do what we’re allowed to do at the best of our ability the coaches have to put the players in the best position.

Someone’s about to get fired.

Pros:

  • He can catch a ball.
  • He says what’s on his mind.
  • He’s not wrong about Mike Brown.

Cons:

  • Dude can tear a team apart. Not sure that’s what he’s done here, but yeah.
  • Bengals. Whatever. PITCHERS AND CATCHERS REPORT IN LIKE TEN OR SO WEEKS, DUMMY.

Mike Brown Isn’t Gonna Fire Himself. Awesome or Of Course He Isn’t?

From a recent letter Brown sent to a fan who’d pointed out his well-known flaws: “I’m afraid you are stuck with me in my present role, and a general manager brought in from the outside is not in the plans.”

Not that we expected anything less.

Pros:

  • Someone gets to keep a job, I guess.
  • Yep.

Cons:

  • It’s Mike Brown.
  • He’s keeping football minds out of Cincinnati.
  • Also, Mike Brown.
  • Mike Brown.

Cincinnati Bengals: Awesome or The Opposite of Awesome?

  • Talented players.
  • Great uniform.

Cons:

  • Mike Brown.
  • Silly uniform.
  • Mike Brown.
