#6. Hop a bus, go to Cincinnati, get a ticket to the Bengals / Ravens game, take along a Terrible Towel and make both teams seem like they are in the Twilight Zone somewhere. Something like 11 out of the last 16 games at Cincy has been blacked out due to the game not being a sellout. I thought the NFL ended that sort of thing back in the 70's. Can you say "L.A.
