TAMPA, Fla. -- The rest of the AFC North is well represented in Tampa.
|The AFC North is represented -- sort of -- this week in Tampa.|
But it's by flags, not by teams or players.
I came across this while walking to the Convention Center, which is Super Bowl central in downtown Tampa. So I decided to take a snapshot of it.
This was about as close as the Cincinnati Bengals or Cleveland Browns got to the big game this year, as both were four-win teams. The Baltimore Ravens, who were one quarter away in the AFC Championship Game, actually did get close on the football field.
I guess it could be worse for Ravens, Bengals and Browns fans. At least the flags were not at half-staff.
