Takei told the crowd of thousands, "the only thing I can say about this crowd is....oh my."

Nancy Jones, a Packers fan, says she loves the Queen City.
"You guys are awesome. I would come down here every year to see a game," said Jones. "There have been so many people I've met that are wishing us well, not to win, but wishing us well. It's been awesome."
Jeff Vonderheide was born in Cincinnati and says there's nothing like Oktoberfest in the Queen City.
"It's huge. It's my birthday weekend so we come here for Oktoberfest every year," Vonderheide boasts. "Tomorrow I'm taking two of my sons to the Bengals game. It's fantastic for the city."
The economic impact for the city is in the millions, including profits that will be generated from the World Series of Poker at the Horseshoe Casino.
The Horseshoe Casino's Poker Room Manger, Jason Newsom says it is the first World Series of Poker circuit event held in Ohio.
"Having it in Cincinnati is a true honor," said Newsom. "In conjunction with everything else that's going on this weekend it's just another thing that highlights how great Cincinnati is."
The World Series of Poker runs through the end of the month featuring at least 200 players from around the country. The winner stands to make close to $750,000.
