Cincinnati Bengals Player Says He Wants To Win Super Bowl For Harambe

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – In less then two weeks the Cincinnati Bengals take on the Los Angeles Rams during the 56th Super Bowl! While many are anticipating the game, the half time show, and the commercials, some fans are talking about Harambe.


Because the Bengals are playing for Harambe. On Wednesday, on the Pardon My Take podcast, defensive end Sam Hubbard announced the Bengals want to win the Super Bowl to honor Harambe, a gorilla who was killed at the Cincinnati Zoo in 2016.

Pardon My Take host PFT Commenter asked, “Has there been any discussion around the locker room about doing this for Harambe? Bringing one home for the lowland gorilla?”

Hubbard replied, “The sweet prince…I mean, that’s our guy. That’s our hero. I think that’s known, kinda goes without saying. You know, we’re doing this for him.”

For those who don’t remember, Harambe the gorilla was shot and killed at the Cincinnati Zoo after a three-year-old child crawled into his enclosure. The killing sparked global outrage.

Our question of the night: who do you want to win the Super Bowl?
