    Offended By The Honoring of Kentucky Basketball?

    Cincinnati is a city full of college basketball fans; Xavier, Cincinnati and the Buckeyes. Honoring Kentucky in Cincinnati is no different than honoring the Alabama football team at a Braves game; a city full of Georgia football fans. Likely an attempt to get more fans into the seats and from the looks of the attendance on t.v, it didn't work.

    I don't have a problem with it whatsoever. I've grown up a die hard Reds and UK fan my whole life. I'm sure there are many people just like me. That being said I would understand if any of the local teams got honored for a championship at GABP. The Reds represent much more than just the city of Cincinnati.

    It offends me in the sense that it would be like honoring Bonds, McGuire, or Clemens. No one outside of the fans of each of them considers their "accomplishments" legitimate.

    It is. Defenders of all stated will say "it still counts in the record book" when no one outside of the fans of the involved considers it legitimate. That's just the way it is. It's exactly the same.

    I am an Indiana University basketball fan. I have followed them ever since the cleaning lady from State Farm was opening games for them on channel 4. Kentucky is one of our biggest rivals, if not the biggest. So it pains me to say that I have no problem with my favorite baseball team honoring them. GABP is a 10 minute walk across a bridge from Kentucky, so to think there wouldn't be a SH!T TON of KY fans that are also Reds fans would be moronic. I understand that Cincinnati is in Ohio and that Ohio is OU country, but get a life. Not everyone from Ohio needs to be an OU fan.

    You do realize that the article you linked clearly states that the NCAA found no evidence of any wrongdoing by Calipari, right?

    I dont get to many Reds games. But when I do it is usually a week-end thing which means my family and I take in a couple of games and stay in a hotel. I have done this 20 or so times. Everytime I go, there are all kinds of UK fans staying at the same hotel......and yes they are there to go to the Reds game. Cincinnati's location is conducive to pulling fans in from the region, and that region includes Lexington.
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.
