The Bengals fans are some of the greatest fans in the NFL, and even when it’s not necessarily shoeing up in attendance numbers at games, fans are always passionately expressing their thoughts and feelings across blogs, message boards, Twitter and whatever way they can let the world know they love their Bengals.
You may remember the story of the lucky dad got to show his stripes unsuspectingly, as he was presented with a gift from his son that made him tear up:
This dad has been a Bengals fan for 40 years but has never gotten to see his favorite team play in person, let alone in the confines of Paul Brown Stadium while surrounded by thousands of screaming fans.
Thanks to this gift from his son, he’ll get to see the team take on the New York Jets today, but it didn’t stop there, as the Bengals were made aware of this, and invited him to join the team Saturday and speak to the team about how special this was to it.
