    We, from California, refer to anything north of Bakersfield as South Oregon.

    Re: Random question about the word "Cincinnati"

    I've never heard a "local" from the Cincinnati area refer to the city as "the Nati". What I have heard is:

    The Queen City
    Zinzinnati
    Cincinnata
    2014 Reds record when I'm attending: 15-12
    2014 Dragons record when I'm attending: 2-1

    If your ebay search ever contains the word "cincinnati", you'd better include cincinati, cincinatti, cinncinnatti, cinncinnati, cinncinati, and cinncinatti in your search if you want to find all the items available. People spell it every which way.

    Though "P Town" for Portland in accepted, "Oaktown" for Oakland and "The City" for San Francisco.

    So when does Kentucky become "The KY" or "NoKen"?
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    I always enjoyed the 'Cokeland' moniker.

    Wasn't there a TV ad campaign about this a few years back? I seem to remember seeing commercials with kids picking up trash and throwing it away, all the while singing a crappy made-up rap about not "trashing the Nati." That was the first I heard of the word "Nati," and not being from Cincinnati, I've always thought that was a commonly used nickname.



    Note: There is a chance I may be making the part about the rap up, or thinking about something completely different.

    The 'Nati is what most college kids call it in Clifton. I have no idea where or when that started, always been there for me since I came to school.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    The 'Nati was around long before Jim Rome. I first heard it in '79.....in Los Angeles right after I moved there.
