The Cincinnati Bootsies

Bootsy Collins makes music for fans -- of football.

Funk master Bootsy Collins dances with fans as he signs autographs at a Jan. 6 Cincinnati Bengals pep rally at Paul Brown Stadium in downtown Cincinnati. Collins recently released a CD of songs dedicated to the Bengals, including "Fear Da Tiger." Despite Collins' efforts, the team lost Sunday's playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, ending its quest to appear in Super Bowl XL.
