Have the Cincinnati Bengals ever gone to the Super Bowl?
The last time Cincinnati football fans saw the beloved Bengals go to the Super Bowl was in 1989. Yes -- over 30 years ago! And in the seasons since, Cincinnati football fans have seen their beloved Bengals try... and try again... to make it back to the biggest game of the year. For the record, the Bengals did *not* win in 1989; the team has made it to the Super Bowl twice, but never won the Lombardi Trophy. (Don't even mention the name "Joe Montana" around longtime fans...) That is, until 2022. That's right... the Cincinnati Bengals have made it to the Super Bowl for the third time in the team's history, and, as of this writing, there was an entire city of eager fans keeping their fingers crossed and saying all sorts of prayers. Why? Because Cincinnati football fans are *the* best!
What are some famous athletes from Ohio?
While Cincinnati football fans get a lot of the state's spotlight in terms of die-hard fandom, our basketball game is strong, too! LeBron James hails from the Buckeye State, and no matter how you feel about this basketball star, he's one of the most famous athletes to be born and raised in Ohio - Akron, to be exact. Baseball fans in the Queen City *love* Ken Griffey Jr., one of the most famous Cincinnati Reds ever! Griffey was born in Pennsylvania, but moved to Cincinnati during his childhood when his father, the legendary outfielder Ken Griffey Sr., was part of the Cincinnati Reds Big Red Machine in the late 1970s!
