Re: Reds-related playoffs news
In the totally pointless factoid of the day:
The Kentucky Wildcats basketball team won the NCAA Basketball National Championship for the first time in 1948. The following fall, the Cleveland Indians won the World Series. Since then, the Wildcats have won seven more NC's (1949, 1951, 1958, 1978, 1996, 1998, and 2012) and in all but 2012, the New York Yankees have won the ensuing World Series.
The Yanks are still alive, but it would be nice to see the Reds break that odd streak this season.
