I haven’t known a Bengals team like this in my 31 years of life.

My parents have a book of Jim Borgman cartoons at their house, mostly from the 80s and 90s while Borgman was the cartoonist for the Cincinnati Enquirer. There’s one cartoon, familiar again now, depicting a scary-looking tiger sitting in the end zone. The caption just reads “Next…”

This confused me as a kid, because I didn’t know this fearsome Bengal. I only knew that Cincinnati in the Super Bowl felt like a far-off dream, even in the years when we reached the first round of the playoffs.

Now, we are all swept up in the joy, giddy at the idea we could see our team win the Lombardi trophy.

Cincinnati, which sits on the Ohio River, has an identity. Other cities try to change and reinvent themselves. Cincy is Cincy and will likely always remain so, even with new entertainment districts, streetcars, and current national media exposure.

The city is alive right now, clad in black and orange as its residents await the biggest Cincinnati professional sports moment in more than 30 years. The Queen City has been in a championship drought since 1990, when our Reds won the World Series. We’re ready to be a championship city again.

I stood with some of my fellow black and orange believers the other night on Fountain Square, the symbolic center of the city (you may recall seeing it in the opening credits of WKRP in Cincinnati), and we were so excited — singing, dancing and “Who Dey”-ing at one another.
