I'm 45, born in 1965.
My Dad bought our first color TV for the '75 playoffs. Some of you probably never realized TV's were black and white before color came along.
I've been lucky enough to experience the '75, '76 and '90 World Championships. And also experienced the Bengals Forest Gregg Super Bowl appearance and the Sam Wyche appearance. Remember both vividly. Heck, I remember Isaac Curtis and Kenny Andersen like it was yesterday. I also remember UC's Final Four and Elite Eight appearance the following year.
Have to say I've witnessed some great Cincinnati sporting achievements in my lifetime. I feel for some of you in your early 20's who've had to go without as the Reds have stunk for the most part and the Bengals flirt with being good again. UC basketball is in the tank but the football program is on the rise. Can't wait for Zach Collaros this season.
Anyway, I digress. Great that the Reds are back on top!
