I was actually happy to hear Hannigan interviewed on the radio rather than Bailey.  Catchers should get a little credit.

Marty Brennaman did used to spend inning upon inning of Homer Bailey's starts positing that Homer would never get himself together enough to be worth a big-league rotation spot.  As I recall, it was a theme of his for about half a season a while back.   Hasn't happened in the past few years, though I could see how Homer might not forget about it that quickly.

Personally, had I dropped an accidental live interview F-bomb, I'd be tempted to say "no farking way, it's not my night for interviews" to the next guy with a microphone.

Ken Griffey Jr. called Cincinnati a "little New York". This is the kind of thing he was talking about. There is simply no pleasing the sports pundits there, or the idiots who call in to talk radio, especially on WLW. Congratulations Homer Bailey on your second no-hitter, and you don't owe the media a thing.

Exactly. As soon as either the Bengals or Reds clinch a playoff spot it's never "how far can they go", it's "THEY ARE GOING TO FAIL SPECTACULARLY!" Sports talk around here is virtually impossible to listen to for that reason. I mean, I can understand trying to be somewhat grounded or realistic, but some of these "fans" just outright refuse to believe either team has any chance, ever. What's the point in following a team if you can't believe in them?

Honestly, I think it's a generational thing. Seems like people around my age group and younger are generally more positive... it's the generation before me that were apparently completely wrecked by the 1995-2005 to the point that they can never be optimistic or enjoy anything ever again.

I think you pretty much nailed it. The Reds from 1995-2005 and the Bengals since the 80's make it hard to be an optimistic Cincinnati sports fan under 30

Aw this makes me a little sad for Reds fans.

/SF fan but no snark
//One of the best parts of watching a Giants game to me is the awesome broadcast of the local network

No, see, I disagree. I think it's the opposite. I think people my age (30) and younger are the ones who view the team with a more positive outlook. I think we appreciate how competitive our teams have been and are optimistic that things can continue to get better because we've seen both teams at their worst.

I think it's the generation before that group... the generation that grew up with the Bengals going to multiple Super Bowls in the 80s, that were kids for the Big Red Machine and adults for the 1990 World Series, those are the ones complaining. They saw both franchises at their best, got extremely pissy when things went south, and basically just never let that go. This is also the generation most apt to call into Sports Talk radio, so this is why you only hear negativity.

At least that's what I see in the people I know who grew up Cincinnati sports fans.

I didn't grow up in Cincinnati; I grew up in NWO and then went to UC.  I've always been a huge Bengals and Reds fan and you nailed it.  I always laugh at the trivia quiz during the game because I know 9 out of 10 that the answer will be someone from the Big Red Machine. It's like nothing of relevance happened after. The Reds have had some amazing ball players and teams come through and no, they didn't make it to the World Series, but christ, the pessimism. It truly is "How far will they make it?"
