So I was just watching a video on the Reds website where they interviewed the beautiful Vanessa Minnillo before game three last week and she talked about how big of Reds fans her family is and mentioned Chapman is her favorite player.

Her interview:

Kirk Herbstreit is a huge Reds fan too, and also gave an interview with MLB.com.

Pretty sure I've read that Charlie Sheen is a big Reds fan, and George Clooney too.

Nick Lachey too.

Anyone else?

Look at it this way: I'll bet there are a lot more celebrity Dodger fans than celebrity Reds fans and celebrities tend to be a little strange. So, there are probably more strange celebrity Dodger fans than Reds fans. :)

Ashely Judd was at a Reds game this year. She wore a Reds hat. She was with an older gentleman who I assume was her dad. She also (1) watched the whole game; (2) took pictures of the Reds in the dugout (which I thought was funny because obviously she could just go meet the players after the game); and (best of all) (3) KEPT SCORE.

In short, Ashley Judd may be a Reds fan, and is definitely a baseball fan.

Jonathan Winters and John Legend are 2 fellow Springfielders so they better be Reds fans.

Legend graduated with my cousin at my alma mater Springfield North which oddly enough is now the new Springfield High School (no more north and south). This is Reds country around here.
