There is finally a family member over there that seems to get things.  We'll see how long she can keep this up.

Katie is 55 right now.  Mike took over when he was 56, I believe.  He's actually 3 years older now than what his dad was when he passed.  Not that I'm ill-wishing anything for him, but hopefully we are on the precipice of him turning more and more over to her.

I'm referring to Elizabeth.  She seems to be breathing more life into that organization.  Although, I think Katie taking over will be a plus.

Her daughter Elizabeth who is 28 is the one who has stepped up the Bengals game, and seems to be trying to address many of the concerns fans have had through the years.

WAAAAAAAAAAAY overdue.  Shame some of the guys passed before this will be implemented.

Absolutely.  I think it may have even hampered a couple of guys with regards to getting into Canton.  When your own team has refused to recognize your greatness, why should the national audience?

I'm not a season ticket holder, but if I were I'd vote for the first Bengal drafted to be included in the inaugural ring of honor class, Center Bob Johnson.  And incredibly, the only Bengal to have his jersey number (54) retired.

Not sure Bob may have the name recognition amongst the younger folk.  Not saying he isn't deserving, just that there's others who people may tend to be more familiar with.

Which is the reason something like "Bengals Ring of Honor" should have been done years ago.  If history isn't taught or mentioned.........
