This is kind of a compliment.

Ohio does not claim Cincinnati or its disgusting chili.

 

I cast votes for the Ohio Governor and senate this morning. I hope they still count. 

 

I don't really align with the true native Cincinnatians on a lot of stuff, politics especially, but the most Cincinnati thing about me is how much I love the Reds and Skyline Chili. Skyline Chili is the :censored:ing best gross food on the planet and I go there biweekly. Any attempts to knock it only serves to make me stronger and places you firmly into Basic Bitchdom. I don't make the rules. I will stan for Skyline until the day I die. 

 

It's cheese, meat, spaghetti. You can get it on a hot dog. They bring you oyster crackers! Throw it all on a baked potato and it's like if a warm blanket was a meal. Protip: Get the Chilito with spaghetti on a tomato wrap. It's a 3way, wrapped up in a tortilla, but their tomato wraps are bigger than their regular tortilla shells so you get more goop inside, but for the same price.

Might as well call it Kentucky. 

 

Kentucky doesn't want us either.

Cincinnati and St. Louis seem to be very similar in terms of being almost Southern and very German.

 

Yes correct, but Cincinnati's topography is far more interesting. St Louis had to build an arch so people had something to look up towards.

I don't think it's that Cincinnati is "southern" so much as it is a river city.  It seems like most of the major cities that were oriented toward the Ohio River/Mississippi River are to some degree culturally separated for the rest of their state (Cincinnati, Louisville, Memphis, St. Louis, etc.).

Cincinnati chili is fantastic and I refuse to consider otherwise.

 

Also, I'm pumped to see that 1999 uniform returning!  Will be cool to see all of their throwbacks in action.  

 

Are they wearing the 1994 pinstripe hats and unis? I didn't seem them but maybe?

Cool...my Reds hat collection will increase by at least two next year (currently at 0 lol).

 

I’d put good money on it that it’ll be a full Chinese-made run, though. Getting that pinstripe cap in MUSA poly is basically impossible.

I'm ok with any make as long as the brim's on straight (and flexible), the stitching and seams are good, and it's a true fit...which is like 10% of New Era hats no matter the location.

November 6, 2018 - 21:18 PM

The Cincinnati Reds will be celebrating the 150th anniversary of the first professional baseball team next season with a commemorative logo, patch, and *fifteen* different throwback uniforms, among other things. Not to be outdone by the Chicago Cubs, who in […]

Out of all those uniforms, the 1976 and 1990 (which is the same as the '76 set except for red shoes, striping down the side of the pants and three stripes on the sleeves) are my faves. :)

I am excited to see that nightmarish 1956 Mr. Red logo.

 

You better believe I'm getting me a 1995 hat though. Brings me back to Ken Griffey Jr. on the Nintendo 64.

Why the Reds aren’t still wearing their 1995 set, I’ll never know. It should be one of those classics that needs no touching.

If it were up to me (ha!), of the throwbacks I'd go with the '69 set for home, a (modernized, less nightmarish) '56 set on the road, and the '39 set for all American holidays in lieu of whatever awful sets the MLB is pushing for July 4, etc.
