    Chad Johnson has been dawning a Reds cap a lot. He wore one on The Best Damn Sports Show Period and during his infamous press conference a few weeks ago.

    Fickle. No way would I change my fan affiliation just because of a friend. I don't think I'd be able to.

    Greg Grunberg.

    I also remember hearing that some performer at Riverbend made sure he was able to attend a Reds' game or two while he was in town. For the life of me, I can't remember who it was.

    I also saw a muscian sporting a Reds' hate in a video... can't remember who that was either.

    Geez, my memory stinks.

    I don't think following teams is necessarily a priority with him. He was a fan of the Reds because they used to do things the right way. I understand he was particularly an admirer of how Rose practiced and played. I think he's a LaRussa fan because of the success he has had over the years. And, to be honest, the Cards do things the right way more than the Reds do. I'm not sure Knight follows baseball for recreation as much as he does to see how he can get the winning edge.

    This is who you were thinking of TB:

    I think Vedder is more of a Jose Cardenal fan than a Reds fan:

    I heard Chesney say he's a Braves fan.

    Rob Lowe

    I've also heard Dave Mustaine say in interviews that he is a Reds fan

    The Barenaked Ladies...I sat behind them once at Riverfront.
    This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.

    If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.

    Bill Bennett is a Reds fan.

    I remember hearing him on a local Cinci interview during the 1990 playoffs

    I thought Eddie Vetter liked the Sox as well - I thought it was something to do with Jack McDowell.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    Taylor Hawkins of The Foo Fighters - at least he wears a Reds hat quite a bit.

    I remember a SI article on Brent Musburger just after the Reds WS sweep in 1990. It said Musburger was very happy and buying drinks for everybody in a bar after the Reds won game 4. It was speculated that it was because he was still vindictive toward CBS (Musburger was fired April 1, 1990 - I remember thinking it was an April Fool's joke) and was happy since CBS lost money due to the sweep. Musburger denied the claim, saying he grew up a Reds fan.
