I been in New York City this week and they are everywhere. I knew it was some connection and that many guys on the Subway weren't Reds fans.

I'm stationed in EL Paso, TX at Ft. Bliss. Not so much by gang members but I think I see more Reds' hats here that I do when I'm back home.

I've read something in the past about the Bloods loving the black hat/red "C" hat combo. The bloods color is red and having a crips "C" in red on the hat is apparently a huge slam on the crips. Pretty strange stuff.

I have like 10 hats, does that make me a gang leader now?

I see them in here in SC all the time. There may be some gang related stuff, but it's more about color coordination. Red baggy shorts below the ass, red shoes, some sort of white t-shirt and the Reds cap. I see similar stuff with purple and d'backs wear.

Color coordination, reference to the Crips and the fact that a lot of guys have names that begin with C.

So, in other words, we were all gansta before gansta was cool! We're trendsetters!! Awesome.....Now I'm all conflicted...

Guess that now, when I'm travelling, I'll be more careful about complementing someone with a Reds cap on. Otherwise I might have someone at the next alley waiting to whack me.:eek:

Man, I don't like this. They've hijacked our beloved Reds cap/logo. I say we all get together and go out to California and start kicking their as... Ugh, maybe not. Never mind. :)

Sheww, I'd hate to get capped by some ignorant thug just for wearing my favorite team's hat.

Maybe we need to go back to this type of cap to discourage the gang element....

Unless you're wearing it with a complete flat brim like it just came out of the shipping box...you probably didn't set the trend. (;

I can remember when the hot gang hat was the NYY...then the Oakland Raiders...then the colorful new NFL teams like the Carolina Panthers.

A friend I have sees Reds hats all over Hawaii, and says there's a strong presence in Louisiana too. Very few he asks are Reds fans. Here in NC I see a lot of Reds and Pirates caps.

I've noticed this for some time now. It is more than obvious at this point.

I'll go up to one of these guys and be like, "what do you think Drew Stubbs needs to do to cut down on his strikeouts??

Ever since the REDS came out with the black trim on their hat, it's been a hot hat among those who "think they're cool".

And then you may get cut down.

Chuck D wore a Reds hat in a Public Enemy video way back in 1991.
