Tuesday Thoughts : Cincinnati Rockers football

cincinnati rockers

You may remember the Lexington Horsemen arena football team but do you recall the Cincinnati Rockers? I do because my Father took me to one of their games. Back then, the early 90s, arena football was labeled as the 50 yard indoor war. The game itself was interesting to watch and former Kentucky football head coach Fran Curci was the Rockers head coach.

Plus it was also a great that I was a teenager and it was bikini night so women who wore bikinis got in at a discounted priced. Our seats happened to be in a bikini section too. Basically, it was a bunch of drunk girls and their even more drunk boyfriends. From what I have been told this scene is similar to Bengals games.  Despite these desperate promotional efforts the Rockers disappeared after two season.
