@ RavensGrrl, I actually do not have a smart phone.
@ weird-o, we went by Mikey's and it is closed FYI. My son did some iPhone work (found two more sports bars that were closed - must be a tough business) and some bartender networking and found a cool neighborhood bar that had every NFL game going:
119 South 39th Street (@ Sansom Street)
Philadelphia, PA 19104
Anyone going to Philly, I recommend it. We only watched the first half (which sucked) but got to meet a bunch of Ravens' fans and had a good time. My son commented when we left to catch his flight at the airport that the place was just bursting with energy with everyone watching all different games. The Eagles were getting embarrassed by the Jags in the first half, and there were a surprising number of Jacksonville fans on hand.
As for the the Bengals game. Our concerns about the secondary proved to be valid. The offense of course was the biggest disappointment. I was so hoping to see something new, but it was the same old thing. No run game. Little or no attempt at working the middle of the field, just a steady diet of 3-and-out long missed passes to the outside. Flacco running around until he gets sacked. I do not despair - it was the first game - I expected things might take a few games to gel. Unfortunately we're now behind in the division going into a tough road game in four days. They've got to figure it out and quick, but perhaps this mighty challenge will inspire them.
