Let's wait the two weeks to see if we have to deal with this issue or not.  :)

 

Bengals über alles.

 

The latest rumor I heard was that it'll be the Seahawks, YMMV.  Visguy Chris from Tacoma (a mutual friend of Amish and me) is elated; his wife works for Allianz and her colleagues are already working on luxury suite reservations. 

 

Things to do:

Olympiapark / Olympiaturm (tower)

BMW Museum
Deutsches Museum (science, nature, tech)
Deutsches Museum (transport)
MVG Museum (also transport)

stroll in the English Garden and see

 -- Chinese Tower

 -- surfers on the Eisbach

 -- and get attacked by geese

Marienplatz, Viktualienmarkt, Kaufingerstraße

Residenz (palace/museum)

Crazy Ludwig's other 2 castles, which are demonstrably better

 -- Herrenchiemsee

 -- Linderhof

Ride a cable car or a cog-wheel train to the top of Germany (Zugspitze from Garmisch-Partenkirchen)

Many, many, many art museums

So. many. beer. gardens.

As soon as the NFL releases the schedule - in less than 2 weeks - you can bet that someone will rush to Wikipedia to update things there immediately.

 

Here's the Germany listing ... scroll up slightly to catch England and the game in horrible Mexico City.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NFL_International_Series#Germany_Games

 

Edited to add:  With 2020 wiping out the International series, there are presently only 4 teams (ATL JAX MIA NYJ) who have played in one of these games more recently than the Bengals.  Of the three AFC teams playing "at" TBB this year, KCC (2019) and BAL (2017) have had a longer or equal wait time than CIN (2019).  Presuming an AFC-NFC matchup (to allow for an opponent that already has 9 away games on their schedule this year), it would seem that the odds are stacked against the Bengals as the designated visitor in Munich.

Of course.... if the Stripes *do* head to Germany, I'll be able to complete my collection by seeing a professional football game in all of the nations shown in the attached USA Network WLAF intro reel.

 

 

England - Bengals at Wembley vs Redskins (2016) and Rams (2019)

Germany - Bengals at Allianz Arena vs Buccaneers (2022)

Spain - (WLAF) Ohio Glory at Montjuic Stadium vs Barcelona Dragons (1992)

Canada - (CFL) BC Lions at BC Place (Vancouver) vs Hamilton Tiger-Cats (1989)

 

Edited To Add: The moment the British WR catches the pass thrown over the Atlantic as the music changes to "Rule Brittania" - goose bumps for me every time, man.  A close second is the instant you realize that the music playing for Germany is from Beethoven's Fifth.

By far, my favorite thing to do is walking the cobblestone streets of the smaller villages.  There are no telephone poles.  Everything is underground.  If you live in the United States, it's a foreign concept not visual in one's mind until you see it in person.

You've never been in my neighborhood then.

Off German topic, but European nonetheless (SF2 will appreciate this):

 

How about one team looking to win a FCS national championship and a Super Bowl within 2 weeks of each other (with a possible Division I National Championship just before the SB)? And, not to mention already winning the Division II National Championship?:

 

Division II (aka EFL Cup)

FCS National Championship (FA Cup):

Possible FCS National Championship (Premier League):

And Super Bowl (Champions League):

All this in the month of May.

No, I haven't.  And, with the Amish phone books loaded with pages of "Benner's", my last name, I'm pretty certain I will someday.  My brother had a 60-acre farm (half forest) in Sayre, PA in the '80's, but I never got there.
