In a year where NCR leaves Dayton, OH for Atlanta, GA where Iams pet food leaves Dayton for Mason, OH, the city of Dayton is at it again. In one year the city of Dayton loses its two biggest companies and now has to say good bye to its two best sports writing journalist / personalities. Under much fan fair and warm heart felt goodbyes, Hal McCoy said goodbye to his beloved loyal Reds fans. Hal got the chance to say goodbye! In October lightning struck twice in Dayton, Ohio, Chick Ludwig is no longer a Dayton sports personality and journalist for the Dayton Daily News. In a Baltimore Colts style move Chick was snuck out the back door of the Cox DDN HQ and is no longer covering the Bengals. He was "cough cough" retired from the Dayton Daily News. Chick didn't even get a chance to say good bye.

Rumor has it; the day Chick went on the Free Agent market he was scooped up by the Cincinnati Enquirer where he will continue his blog. Chick always has an entertaining blog where he gives a lot of good insight about what is going on with the Bengals. He has a lot of good connections inside the organization and he was one of the few journalists Chad Johnson would talk to in his media hiatus. Chick covers the Bengals mostly but he will also discuss some of his other passions. I enjoy his articles on the local high school football scene in S.W. Ohio.

Here is Chick's blog. Read up on it Bengals fans, AFC North fans and really all football fans. Support Chick at his new home.

Yeah Bluez GM is gone also. NCR and Iams are worse though because they were companies that started in Dayton. I think NCR might not know what kind of City Dayton is. Even though the city is struggeling it is a place that nurtures innovation and invention. It is kinda in our DNA. I mean in Dayton people don't have anything else to do but think of better ways to do things. In Georgia people will have more things and distractions. We'll see how it all unfolds. Thank God for Wright Patterson!

Unlike the Hal McCoy situation, the Dayton community may have improved by subtraction with the "loss" of Chick Ludwig. As a Bengal observer I wonder if he is writing under a new psuedonym as an Italian correspondent, "Persona Non Grata". Didn't he and Marvin get along fetchingly? His appreciation of other sports in the local Dayton area is legendary. He has nit-picked the Dayton Flyers basketball team for years while rooting on the Fairborn Green Raiders. As a sports writer he has always had trouble seeing the forest for the trees.
Context is not a strength for the Chickster.
