    I have lived in Nashville, Memphis, and now Baltimore since leaving Cincinnati after college...and...yes, Cincinnati was easily the most uptight place I have lived amongst that group. Not even close.

    Not sure how long that's been, membengal, but I tell my buddies who never came back after college (and that's been nearly 30 years now) that downtown Cincinnati is a much different place than it used to be. The surrounding conservative counties are pretty much the same as they ever were, but the urban city itself is no longer staid and buttoned up. There's something for everyone in downtown these days.

    It's the most un-sports-like thing ever. Unsynchronized, no rhythm, no momentum, no context within the game, completely random.

    Fair enough. Left in 1996, last place I lived was westside, up Queen City Ave. But when I refer to "Cincinnati", I mean the whole tri-state area, including those surrounding counties. And it sure seems as dug in as ever, from what I hear on WLW etc....

    In my opinion, it is. It's very much a "don't get out of line" city.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    Nicely said. And that's kinda what I like about it.

    Only heard about 15 howls/woos tonight from my seat. And each was quite annoying. I had an open mind...but after witnessing it, two thumbs down.
    Attended 1976 World Series in my Mother's Womb. Attended 1990 World Series Game 2 as a 13 year old. Want to take my son to a a World Series Game in Cincinnati in my lifetime.

    Living out in the country I hear howling in the woods at night. Darn coyotes.

    Lots more puppy coyote yipping than tear out your throat wolf howling. I get that its supposed to be next cool thing and that's always fun to be part of, but its just not.

    Hopefully it fades away and dies a quiet death.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    My wife heard it on TV last night and asked "what the hell are they doing?" She was not impressed.

    Watched the game on television last night so I was able to experience it in full effect. It makes me want to chew glass. Also, if it's supposed to be a galvanizer, it's not working.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Harmless bizarrerie. Let them have their fun. Cincy fans have been way too staid way too long, imo.

    And this howling thing makes it better? I think not.
