Tuesday October 7th, 2014

With the Cincinnati Bengals set to take on the visiting Carolina Panthers on Sunday, the mayors of Cincinnati and Charlotte have decided to wage a battle over which city has the true rights to the nickname, "The Queen City."

The towns have dubbed the game the "Queen City Bowl," even coming up with a logo and hashtag (#QCBowl) for the battle, while the mayors are getting into it on Twitter.
