Bengals Quarterback Back For Another Visit
He arrived to the sounds of a slow clap that erupted into a boisterous “Who Dey!”
Cincinnati Bengals starting quarterback Andy Dalton joined the TQL team for a patio party Sept. 12 at our Ivy Pointe headquarters.
“It’s really nice to be back here,” Dalton said to more cheers. “We had a great time last year and we’re grateful for TQL and the help they give our foundation.”
TQL President Kerry Byrne presented a $10,000 check to the Andy and Jordan Dalton Foundation, whose work strives to “provide opportunities, support and resources, along with daily support and life-changing experiences, to seriously ill and physically challenged children and their families.”
The Bengals are 1-0 after winning 23-22 on the road against the New York Jets.
Dalton was 23-for-30 passing for 324 yards and a touchdown to AJ Green, who finished with 12 catches for 180 yards. Mike Nugent kicked a 47-yard field goal with 54 seconds left to put the Bengals up and Josh Shaw had a late interception to secure the win.
Dalton spoke about how powerful and meaningful it was to play in New York on the 15-year anniversary of the 9-11 terrorist attacks. The day before the game, the team visited Ground Zero and the 9-11 Memorial, where Dalton and the rest of the team captains placed bouquets in memory of those who died there.
He posed for pictures with members of Team TQL and signed plenty of gear for raffles, including a pair of life-size cutouts, hats, footballs and jerseys. The company also gave away three pairs of tickets to future Bengals home games.
In addition to hanging with the QB, football fans feasted on a Cincinnati-style chili bar, complete with three ways and cheese coneys.
