STILL USING KATY: A Bengals' spokesperson on Saturday said that the Bengals will "reevaluate how often it will play Perry's song during home games." The spokesperson: "We still like the song. We are not ditching Katy Perry. I can't tell you exactly when the song will play or even whether it will play at all (Sunday). It's just being moved around" (ESPN.com, 9/21). Berding: “Pregame is where the most angst came from. Fans have an expectation of certain music they want to get fired up to before the game. We’re always trying new things. We have a diverse fan base and are trying to find a mix that entertains them.” In Cincinnati, Kate McGinty wrote one thing that "did go over well was the debut of the Bengals drumline." Berding said that there was a "very good reaction to The Growl and that they were well received before the game in the tailgate lots and after the third quarter" (CINCINNATI.com, 9/20).
