Steve McNair Photo Fallout: Damnit Kings Island, Things Were Looking Up In Cincinnati

By John Breech / Staff

Bengals players stopped getting arrested and they beat Green Bay. The Reds have won something like 23 of their last 24 games. Yes everyone, life in Cincinnati was starting to look good.

Until yesterday, when Channel 5 (WLWT) unveiled to the world Kings Island's Halloween showcase...

From the channel 5 website: Kings Island will employ some unusual tactics to scare park-goers this Halloween -- including the use of live animals and dead celebrities.

Wow, that sounds like fun Kings Island, deceased celebrities are both scary and amusing. I'm definitely showing up and I'd pay at least $90 to get in.

Lets see which famous dead people Kings Island included in their Halloween horror-town: Michael Jackson, Dave Thomas (Wendy's Founder), Ted Williams... STEVE "I just got a bullet put through my head two months ago" McNair.

Seriously Kings Island, you put a Steve McNair skeleton on a couch with a Sahel Kazemi skeleton on top of him and then you topped it off with a Tennessee Titans trick-or-treat basket... Trick or fucking treat McNair family.

That's right everyone. Two months removed from being gunned down and killed is not too soon to be included in a public Halloween display.

Awesome Kings Island. Awesome.

On a side note, it's funny if college kids dress up like the Crocodile Hunter or Steve McNair two weeks after those people die. But it is not OK for a family theme amusement park to do this.

Kings Island, you are the reason its not sunny in Cincinnati this week.

  1. Well said John. I don't follow your blog, not because I done care, I just don't have time to read my own email these days, and when I get home, the last thing I want to do is get online. However, this post caught me so off guard... really, someone gets paid to make these decisions? See you in a few. Hoping it will be sunny then.
