I have no idea if this is the brainchild of the new marketing crew or not, but a big "ick" to that war cry--sounds like so much inoculation against moving forward.
They use it in a couple of the Reds commercials on television as well.
I may be wrong, but I think it has to do with the tradition of baseball in Cincinnati... and the new ownership wants to re-instill that. Like, don't forget your roots... we're a baseball town and we plan to get back to what we once were, so catch the fever!
I don't see anything wrong with it.
John Allen built a lavish museum devoted to the Reds' past. How soon we forget.
John Allen didn't exactly build the Reds Hall of Fame. IIRC, he dragged his feet on the project until Lindner mandated that he get it done. And even then, I doubt he did it single handedly.
