Ya know, I wonder though. Look at this link and go down to the lower right and look at the ranking of the members who are Reds fans.
The Reds are ranked #7. This isnt exactly like a poll where everyone goes and votes so their team "wins" a poll, this is just a representation of people who have signed up on CBS Sportsline and stated who their fave team is. The kids who grew up with the Big Red Machine as their boyhood (and girlhood) team are now 40 somethings and are plentiful.
