NFL WEEK 12
St. Louis at Cincinnati
The Bengals were 8-0. Now, they're 8-2. Uh-oh. But they only lost by 4 and 3 points in their last two games. They're coming home to play a non-conference game against the Rams. Is it a get-well game? Or will they struggle again vs. this stranger from the NFC? The Rams are in a funk themselves, with three straight losses and a shaky quarterback situation. They benched Nick Foles for Case Keenum, which means that Foles must have been pretty bad -- and, he was. Now, Keenum was bonked on the head, turned the ball over a lot, and it appears that the Rams' choices at quarterback don't really matter because none of them are good. What do the Sports Reporter boys – 13-5 in the NFL the last three weeks -- think? If you’re not already a member, then become one to see this week’s issue of Sports Reporter and you’ll find out!

OCTOBER 27, 2015 -- Halloween. Right. Why does it still exist? We put the dopey clip-art things in the paper every year but that doesn’t mean I really like Halloween. People put gravestones on their front lawns in honor of…what? If kids want candy, they could just ask their parents, ‘Mom, Dad, can I have some candy, please?’ And either their parents will go out and buy them some, or they’ll say, ‘No, you can’t have any candy.’ Either way, the kids win, even if they don’t know they win in example #2. My little daughter doesn’t quite grasp the trick-or-treating concept. We ding-dong the bell, the resident opens the door, she rushes past the person like it’s a safety blitz, and tries to run up their stairs. If every kid on Halloween did this – storm the freakin’ door, slip inside the home, try to break things – adults would find a way to cancel Halloween and everybody would be better off. It just makes no sense. MORE
