Happy Who Dey!

To say Cincinnati is excited about the Bengals vs. Raiders NFL playoff game on Saturday is an understatement.

Local health leaders and politicians devoted a portion of a recent press briefing to discussing how to safely attend the game, which takes place at 4:30 p.m. Jan. 15 at Paul Brown Stadium. Jeff Ruby's steakhouses and Izzy's are both offering Joe Burrow-themed specials this weekend. And even Jesus appear to be part of Who Dey Nation.

Now, Cincinnati Mayor Aftab Pureval has made our fandom official by declaring Jan. 15, 2022, to be Who Dey Day in the Queen City. The proclamation dedicates the day to the Bengals for their community engagement, support of organizations during the pandemic and being "a model of fortitude and city pride, attracting national recognition and regional excitement for their talent and promise." It goes on to mention the team's AFC North Division win and their historic accomplishments.
