Hey Bucksfan, I feel your pain.  Cincinnati is a great town and, other than the UC fanbase, I've never been sure why she gets so much hate from other Ohioans.  

I've lived in Columbus, Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, and Western Kentucky and I have to say that the difference between Cincinnatians and other Ohioans are extremely exaggerated.  IMHO, the greater difference is between the people of Toledo and Columbus.  But Cincinnati is just as much a part of Ohio as Columbus, or Toledo, or Zanesville, or Steubenville, or Bowling Green.  And IMHO, Cincinnati should get more respect from other Ohioans.  And for all those of you who say "Ewww, Cincinnati is basically Kentucky!", the people of Northern Kentucky could almost be described as Midwestern.  Now after you get past Lexington, thats a completely different story.  But, in my experience, Northern Kentucky has many similarities with South and Central Ohio.  

IMHO, everyone should be a little more respectful of each other.  Don't bash Cincinnati.  Don't bash Cleveland.  Don't bash Toledo.  Never bash Columbus.  And while we're at it, don't bash Northern KY.  It really isn't like the rest of the state and I was never ashamed to live there.

This sounds about right to me.  I did like how you put Cincinnati first though.

Ummm, Toledo has a lot of TSUN and a decent mix of Crying Irish fans.  And, as an Ohio State fan, I've taken more heat from ND and UM fans than I ever have from UC or UK fans.  And I've lived in both Cincinnati and Kentucky.

My Great-Great-Great-Grandfather (on my mother's side) was a corporal in the Ohio Regimental Infantry, Company 40, during the Civil War.  He was lucky enough to survive the war and live until the turn of the century.  

My thanks goes out to him, and everyone one else who fought for the Union, for their lives and service.  They changed the future for African Americans and, without their sacrifices, some of my best friends wouldn't be where they are today.  Long live America!

My condolences Angel.  I think your mother would have been pleased with such a kind and loving tribute.  My prayers go out to you and your family.

Wait...What does the front picture have to do with Bo Ry....Ohhhh he IS in the picture!  Didn't see him there for a while.

I really could care less about Bo Ryan.  He's a good basketball coach.  He's kind of old, kind of a curmudgeon, and he looks like a badger.  That's about all you need to know.

IDK man...this ones in your court.  

Honestly, if I had a good job, which I enjoyed, in a place a liked, I wouldn't consider moving anywhere.  But thats just my two cents.

Oh, don't get me wrong.  I feel deeply for the student and his family.  That's why a posted this. That was a poor choice on wording on my part..I should have wrote "follow" instead of "care".

In my opinion, Notre Dame fans have to be the second "best" fanbase.  Although they aren't too terribly intelligent, those people are passionate and they are everywhere!

I've known a few very passionate Georgia fan.  Very passionate but also very annoying.

No.
But if you told me he was literally getting roasted, I might watch that.

No problem.  

If you encounter a Gwen, just know that it is very possible that you might shortly get played.  It's not worth the risk.

Congrats man!  That's a heck of an accomplishment.  Enjoy every minute of your next four years because they will go by quickly!
