Since moving back to Ohio, Kevin ("Westy") and Susan ("Suse") are becoming regulars at Mama Riss tailgates. A huge Bengals fan dating back to the mid-80s, Westy is thrilled to be just a stone's throw away from the Jungle. The couple recently moved from Chicago to Beavercreek, OH. A true Bengals couple, the two had one of their first "unofficial" dates at PBS in 2006 when the Bengals defeated the Baltimore Ravens 13-7 on a rainy Thursday night showdown. A proud Southerner (and Georgia Bulldog), Suse brings her GA swag to the tailgates. While 8 years in the Midwest has had a slight impact, if you listen close, you will still hear some "Y'alls" dropped every now and then. A brief historical tidbit...Westy and Janis were former rivals on the baseball field growing up (The final record between Westy's Carroll Patriots and Janis' Beavercreek Sox is still up for debate). The two set aside their differences after they reconnected at Miami University. Westy and Suse wish you all a Happy WHO-DEY!!
- Favorite Thing About Tailgating:
- Enjoying Food and Drink with great friends (while meeting new ones), Dominating Corn Hole Games, Listening to DJ Janis spin his musical mixes, Occasional (civilized) political discussions/debates, Seeing the amazing throwback jerseys/attire that true Bengals fans have held onto for years, and Conversing with "Big Daddy" when he shows up.
- Westy: Kettering, OH; Suse: Carrollton, GA
