    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I think WVA has more booby bars and small country churches per capita than any state I've been in.

    I'd guess Maine. The Acadia region is more than a little bit spooky.

    Though don't sell Pennsylvania short. I don't know about per capita because the state has two major, largely outhouse-free population centers, but the middle of the state surely cranks up the gross outhouse total.

    I've also been told there's some mostly feral folks out in the hollows of the Catskill region in New York who'd view an outhouse as an unnecessary modern amenity.

    I'm not sure how this got to this point, but here's the census data on outhouses etc. I'll let one of the stat guys figure out which has the highest per capita, but one Google entry suggested it's Wisconsin.

    Do outhouses in deer camps count?

    Somebody has to attend all those Billings Mustangs games.

    How many Reds fans reading this have actually attended a Billings Mustangs game in Billings, Montana?

    It's pretty weird to drive through on I-90 withing seemingly not a human within a time zone shout, and see billboard after billboard pasted with 'public service' ads for the Montana meth project.
