    Votto doesnt want to be the weak link

    YouTube - Votto wearing Boston gear

    Does anyone remember the hoopla over LeBron James wearing a Yankees cap?

    It's not like its a Red Sox cap, its a Bruins cap. Hell Maple Leafs fans should be more upset than us since he's from a town with an Original Six team already.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I was thinking that Columbus would be the closest thing to a "local" team. It's hard to imagine any kid who grew up in Canada being excited about the lackluster Columbus Blue Jackets. There might not be many kids in Cincinnati excited about them, either.

    Joey's looking a little chubby. Or maybe its the camera that adds the pounds.

    a lot of folks were saying LeBron was sending messages, who's to say Joey isnt doing the same, does the Red Sox have a good farm system?

    And we saw where LeBron ended up...
    "Today was the byproduct of us thinking we can come back from anything." - Joey Votto after blowing a 10-1 lead and holding on for the 12-11 win on 8/25/2010.

    They've got first base covered already...

    Because there isn't one.

    I don't count the BJ's as being "Cincinnati's team" and at this point supporting them means waving so long see ya next fall.

    LeBron wore a Yankees hat to an Indians/Yankees baseball game. THe situations aren't even comparable.

    James was from Akron, where everyone roots for Cleveland sports. So the idea of him not doing so allowed others to question his loyalty to them.

    Votto is from Canada, so it is no surprise he is a fan of other teams. And lets not forget Mary Brennaman is NOT a Bengals fan.

    Yeah, it took me a second read.

    But the statements still stands, local hockey fans like the Clones, but I don't see any huge attempts to make the BJ's the local team.
