Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals are one team relatively untouched by COVID-19 in comparison to what several other teams are currently facing. Joe Burrow's explanation?

He says it is in large part that there is "not a ton to do in Cincinnati." As such, no players are contracting COVID-19 out at the bars and nighttime events.

That comment has triggered a large part of the NFL community.

@Ben_Baby @Bengals There is plenty to do here. He is talking places like Vegas California NY Florida… of course we aren’t those states. But don’t be fooled this is the playground of the US!
@SonOfARivers @Ben_Baby @Bengals 2 major theme parks KI and Cedar point. KI was ranked best kids theme park in the WORLD 18 years straight beating out Disney. HoF is located in canton. 1 of the best zoos in the world and a top aquarium in the country. This is consensus and is voted on… despite what you think
@Ben_Baby @Bengals I use to bar hop for years. About 2002, Cincinnati's nightlife slowed down. I'm talking about late night- morning partying. Yeah, there are many neighborhood pubs but what about a place like Jeff Ruby's old La Boom? I love Cincinnati but it ain't Las Vegas. #Cincinnati
@Ben_Baby @AdamSchefter @Bengals Burrow has become a true cincinnatier. Yea there ain’t much to do but there’s a lot to eat! @Skyline_Chili I’m looking at you guys 👀 every time I fly home for japan I beeline it to the nearest skyline
@Ben_Baby @Bengals It was at this moment that Joe knew he fucked up 😂
@Ben_Baby @Bengals Lol the Cincinnati franchise QB shitting on Cincinnati
@Ben_Baby @Bengals Burrow out here channeling my exact thoughts about Cincinnati like
@Ben_Baby @Bengals As a Browns fan I'd love controversy on Cinci. But come on. He's clearly making a light hearted joke.
@Ben_Baby @Bengals It’s a pretty great place to live. If “great” for you means hitting clubs every night and staying out till the sun comes up, this ain’t your place.
@Ben_Baby @Bengals Cincinnati’s nightlife might not be as good as other cities…but do other cities have the best hippo of all time??? No.
@Ben_Baby @Bengals How do people not realize this is a little joke? Why are people upset/worried about this? I’m truly baffled 😂

Joe Burrow is suffering from a fascinating phenomenon that occurs quite often to those who move to new cities. It doesn't matter how big the city is or how much there is to do.

Every city (outside of major locales such as Las Vegas and Miami) has only so many spots, nightlife options, theme parks, etc. After a certain amount of time, everything that can be done has been done.

At this point, people that were once starry-eyed entering the area for the first time become apathetic, having done everything they want to do. Once a person hits the nightlife of an area, it may start to feel redundant as time goes on.

Sure, there are other options for activities, but the best ones have already been done.

No matter where one lives, it seems that one's life eventually devolves into consuming entertainment on the couch. That said, while the length of time before this happens varies by geography, it eventually happens nonetheless.

Instead of thinking about what there is to do, it is better to consider who there is to do things with.

That said, one exception could be climate.

If the dark, cold days of winter or the long, drawn out summers are painful and a source of dread six months per year, it may make sense to move elsewhere in the country to alleviate those issues.

Additionally, if there are bigger career opportunities, a move might make sense as well.


In the end, Burrow's opinion on Cincinnati nightlife would be the same as anywhere else if he stayed in a specific city long enough.
