He may be a closet Cardinals fan though, lol.

Hamm has been great to the St. Louis community and sports scene. Heck, he still buys season tickets to the St. Louis Blues NHL hockey team and does commercials for them.

If Draper liked the Yanks, I'm pretty sure we'd see it on the show itself. Poor Lane Pryce was a Mets fan, I think.

Well, I figure Draper would be a Yankees fan, because he's only interested in "the best." And back then, no other team was even close.

Poor Lane; he probably was a more serious baseball fan than Draper ever could be, and chose the lovable losers. Of course, now we'll never know!

PS- it' the only regular "show" I watch, other than sports or history stuff, and don't even know when it's on. I TIVO it and watch later.

~edit~ Had to search it all out. I had no clue either. It's Jon Hamm, an actor in the show Mad Men (character is named Don Draper). Never seen the show, don't plan on it.

He has been in 2 things I have seen and he was in them for all of 2 seconds apparently since he was uncredited in both of them (not counting shows I have seen where he appeared a time or three in a series with 50+ episodes).

Never heard of him.

I have heard of Mad Men, but I've never seen a single episode. If I don't start watching a series in its first season, I usually don't bother at all. Never watched The Wire, Sons of Anarchy, The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, Friends, or Seinfeld either. (Though I have caught several Seinfeld reruns in syndication.)

He did the voice over for the Cardinals World Series DVD. Top notch stuff.

I agree about Mad Men. One of the best character studies on TV today. I would place Mad Men as a top 10 TV show of all time.

We've also got George Clooney and James Denton (from Desperate Housewives among other things) is also a huge Reds fan. Wore his Reds gear for the Celebrity & Legends Softball game the other night. :)

He's a troubled guy, but not a villain. I just find his character unlikable and boring. Honestly, I'm not sure what the big deal is with the actor himself. He's just blah. I enjoy all the other characters and actors on the show, but not him for some reason. As for villains, one of my favorite characters of all time was Al Swearengen (Ian McShayne) form Deadwood, so it's not about Draper being being "bad" or anything. There is just not one likable trait from Hamm or Draper for me.

Probably a handful of other Celeb Reds fans that don't get the run of Charlie Sheen and Nic LeShay (sp?) and their Reds interest.

I don't know any of these for sure, but might as well start with Charlie's brother & father. With Martin growing up in Dayton, if he's a baseball fan at all, you have to figure he grew up rooting for Big Klu or Wally Post.

How 'bout the girl that does the voice of Bart Simpson? or another former kettering resident Rob Loe?

And then I know I've seen a bunch of guys in rap videos sporting Cincy Reds hats. Can't tell you who they all were, but you've got to figure of few of them are fans of the team :)

Either of those guys has to be better than the first World Series game in 1990 when a banjo player played the National Anthem. Made the rest of the country think Cincinnati was where they filmed Deliverance.
