It’s no secret that Bengals fans are fed up with the organization right now. After five straight years of first-round playoff exits, they’ve failed to make the postseason the past two years. The team seems to be headed in the wrong direction, and without much promise for a quick turnaround. Sprinkle in a handful of on- and off-the-field incidents and you’ve got a level of discontent in the fan base that’s at an all time high. Most feel that the majority of the blame falls with head coach Marvin Lewis, who’s failed to deliver a playoff victory after 15 seasons. For a brief moment this past season, it felt like change was finally on the way when reports surfaced that Marvin did not plan to return next year. That hope was short lived, however. Marvin came out and denied the reports the next day, and Mike Brown offered him a two-year extension after the season ended. For many fans, that was the last straw. Now the team’s leaders are faced with the task of replacing the fans that they’ve driven away. Luckily for them, there’s a massive college fan base just a couple hours up I-71, and they took some pretty obvious steps during the draft to tap into that fan base.
Welcome to another episode of Hungry Hungry Jefe, on today’s episode we test out Buffalo Trace Distillery’s Kentucky Bourbon Chocolate. Buffalo Trace is a distillery located in Frankfort Kentucky and has been around 200 years. If you would like more information about Buffalo Trace Distillery visit their website.

Chocolate is hard to mess up and adding bourbon flavor only made it taste that much sweeter. However, the sweetest part of this video has got to be the introduction of T-Bone the bourbon chugging machine; he will be doing video reviews with me from time to time and yes ladies he is single! If you are a Cowboy/ Buckeyes/ Red Sox fan or just enjoy long walks on the beach and snuggling, slide into T-bone’s DMs (@MillironTBone) jump on the train now ladies before he is too famous!
A quick disclaimer before you watch the video: When you chug too much bourbon the number of reshoot attempts has to be limited and the video quality suffers. T-Bone looks damn good doing it though!
It seems like every year we get a few upsets in the First Round of the NCAA Tournament and everyone wonders “how didn’t we see that coming?”. Well, you have no excuse this season, because I’ve picked 5 upsets I think there is a good chance we’ll see. If you’re a fan of any of the teams I’ve picked to be upset, don’t worry… I’m almost guaranteed to be wrong considering I picked three 11-seeds to upset the 6-seed. Maybe I’ll get lucky and hit on at least one of the 6v11 match ups. I don’t see any of the teams I’ve picked to upset the higher seeds to turn into another Cinderella story, but they could wreak havoc on anyone who thinks a middle of the pack team from a major conference will make a run into the later rounds. I’m not one to bore you with a bunch of stats. These upset picks are derived from my gut feelings and misguided logic.
Hello and welcome to a late afternoon edition of Wake Up With Whitty. And by “late afternoon” I mean that this probably got finished late Sunday night and then I backdated it a few hours. A little trick we like to use in The Biz. Keeps your loyal fan
s on their toes and helps you reach a whole new audience. It’s how I’ve become so successful. And now that you’ve had a sneak peak at how the sausage gets made, it’s time to focus on more important things, like how I’m pissed about the College Football Playoff decision and how I can’t decide if I’m going to pop in Home Alone on DVD tomorrow night or if I’m going to suck it up and watch my Bengals embarrass themselves on Monday Night Football. So without further ado, here’s Wake Up With Whitty:
When the 6th ranked Buckeyes take the field against No. 2 Penn State on Saturday afternoon, they’re going to look a little different than what we’ve grown accustomed to. They’ll still be donning the familiar scarlet and gray, but there will only be a tiny bit of scarlet. And a lot of gray. Like…a lot. The helmets, jerseys and pants consist entirely of various shades of gray, with the exception of a scarlet block-O on the jersey collar and on the helmet’s nose bumper. Ohio State will also ditch their traditional helmet stickers in favor of a black version that features a scarlet Buckeye leaf. The helmets, jersey numbers and socks will all have a subtle wolf’s fur pattern, a nod to the “Land of the Wolves” theme the Buckeyes adopted prior to the 2016 season. Rounding out the uniform is a pair of solid scarlet Lebron James cleats. Below are additional images of the new uniforms courtesy of the Ohio State Football Twitter account.
Good morning and welcome to another edition of Wake Up With Whitty. It’s finally every Bengals fan’s favorite time of year: the week that the Bengals place Tyler Eifert on season ending injured reserve. It only took a little over 4 weeks this year, almost a record time. Fun fact, I bought an Eifert jersey prior to the 2014 season. He didn’t even make it through the first game that year. Since I purchased the jersey he’ll have played in 24 out of a possible 64 games for the Bengals (including the remainder of the 2017 season). Many people are saying he’s fallen victim to the infamous Whitty Jersey Curse. Did I contribute to his inability to stay healthy by purchasing his jersey? (Maybe.). Is it just a coincidence? (Probably.) Should I grow up and be an adult and stop wearing sports jerseys in general? (Never.) There’s a pretty good chance that we’ve seen him play his last game as a Bengal. As an Eifert fan, that’s tough to swallow, but it’s hard to justify keeping a guy around when he’s on the field for less than half of the team’s games. So instead, fans have to come to terms and do the only thing that’s reasonable: focus on other peoples’ problems to distract us from our own. Here’s Wake Up With Whitty. Continue reading
Good morning and welcome to another edition of Wake Up With Whitty. College football is officially here, as we have a full slate of games ahead of us today. Among those games is possibly one of the most anticipated season openers ever, #1 Alabama vs #3 Florida State. This very well could be a preview of one of our College Football Playoff matchups. Several other teams kicked off their seasons earlier this week, including the Ohio State Buckeyes (check out my recap here) and the Cincinnati Bearcats, who both opened the season with wins on Thursday night. If you’re looking to kill some time between now and that next big game, then check out this edition of Wake Up With Whitty and let me know what you think.
