"So with all that in mind, what gives? why don't they get any respect?"

Hey, at least you guys are in the top 25! Vandy is 7-0 and ranked in the top 15 of all the computer rankings, we've beaten Indiana and Michigan, and we're STILL 26th...That's a lack of respect right there...YESSSSIR.

Well I am sure everyone knows in Kentucky its by far and away College Basketball. In this state the Big Blue is a religion. And Louisvile to a lesser extent.

Lets not forget high school basketball. Kentucky is one of the only states in the country where all high schools compete for the same national title. There are no classes or divisions in high school basketball here.

The pro teams most people in Kentucky do support are in Cincinnati. Throughout most of the state Cincinnati television and radio is prevelant, so its easy to follow the Reds. There are not however a lot of Bengal fans however. Blame that on their lack luster play the last few years. For some reason Browns fans have FAR outweighed the Bengal fans. In my part of the state we get West Virginia local stations and they always show the Steelers. So there are a lot of Steeler fans in eastern Kentucky.

Anyway here is what I belive to be the KY Top 6

1. UK Basketball
2. Louisville Basketball
3. High School Basketball
4. Cincinnati Reds
5. Cleveland Browns
6. TIE Steelers/Bengals

If I lived back in the wild west days, instead of carrying a six-gun in my holster, I'd carry a soldering iron. That way, if some smart-aleck cowboy said something like "Hey, look. He's carrying a soldering iron!" and started laughing, and everybody else started laughing, I could just say, "That's right, it's a soldering iron. The soldering iron of justice." Then everybody would get real quiet and ashamed, because they had made fun of the soldering iron of justice, and I could probably hit them up for a free drink.

The southern Ontario area is easy....

1) Toronto Maple Leafs
2) NHL hockey in general (fans of all the other Canadian teams plus Detroit)
3) Junior hockey
4) Toronto Blue Jays (back in their 1992-1993 heyday, they were a strong #3 bordering on #2)
5) Toronto Raptors

In Detroit, by the way, it's Red Wings, Pistons, Tigers, Lions. Is Motown the only American city (aside from places like San Jose where the NHL is the only league in town) where hockey is #1?



Rob asks Dave and Ric if they want to go backstage to play Hungry Hungry Hippos and Flair and Batista immediately bail. Flair wants to be Green. Man, EVERYBODY wants to be green. Except the girl in the commercials. She wanted to be pink. That either means that the ad agency was sexist or that she was communist. Of course Hungry Hungry Hippos is a rather capitalist game isnt it? No self respecting communist would play Hungry Hungry Hippos. Except Stalin. He LOVED Hungry Hungry Hippos.

I'd agree with most of the lists about popularity in Boston.

1. Red Sox
2. Patriots
3. Celtics
4. Bruins
5. Revolution

It's pretty much like this all year round. If the Sox trade for A-Rod on the same day that the Patriots win the Super Bowl, which story would lead?

Gee, you think the Yankee Sucks chants at the Patriots Super Bowl celebration 2 years ago gives a hint on that one. Hell, if Bin Laden gets captured and the Pope dies on the same day A-Rod comes to Boston, A-Rod gets 28 out of 30 minutes of local news.
As for the list, to be fair, I'm an hour out of Boston, thus personally I'd put Providence Basketball ahead of the Bruins (who by the way could sneak into the AP Top 25 this coming week). And, I'm a Giants fan instead of a Patriots fan.
I'll give the list from different time periods:
October 1979-June 1986
1) Celtics: Bird is Bird. 3 NBA Titles, 2 classic Conference Finals Series against Philly.
2) Red Sox: Barely ahead of the Bruins at this point. Ralph Houk sominex era hurt, and remember, Clemens 20K performance in April of '86 had only 13k plus fans.
3) Bruins: Still living off the Bobby Orr era.
4) BC Football: Flutie Era.
5) Patriots: Made a Super Bowl in this time period, but still a distant 5th.

July 1986-August 1993
1) Red Sox: Entering in the Hobson Error at the end of this point, but had pulled into the #1 spot. Game 6 in '86 turned Red Sox fans from content with life people into miserable people who enjoyed suffering. Then again, where else can you see headlines (in a season where the Red Sox win the division) of Wait Til Next Year after an Opening Day loss?
2) Celtics: Bird was still Bird. If not for getting screwed by the refs in the playoffs in '91 against the Pistons in Game 6 and Game 4 against the Cavaliers in '92, the Celtics would have knocked out the Bulls and won titles #17 and 18. Then Bird retired.
3) Bruins: 2 Stanley Cups Finals, Bourque, Neely. A strong 3rd.
4) Patriots: Only moved up to 4th because BC didn't have Flutie anymore.

September 1993-Present
1) Red Sox: Have officially become a cult. The one place where the '94-'95 strike might have actually helped baseball. That, and the Hobson Error ending.
2) Patriots: 2 Superbowl appearances, 1 Title. Parcells created football in this region. Will never surpass the Red Sox unless Haywood Sullivan rises from the grave with Buddy LeRoux and screws up the Red Sox again as was done in the early 80's.
3) Celtics: 3rd mainly out of default for most of this time period.
4) Bruins: Have won 1 playoff series in last 9 years. Plus, they no longer have Mini One-On-One between periods. Damn it, I miss Mini One-On-One. Jacobs and Sinden have ruined a hockey town and placed the Bruins barely above the soccer team in terms of relevance.

It should be noted that the Patriots have a sell-out streak in excess of ninety games, so even if they haven't had as much media coverage, they've still long been popular in the area.

Simple math, my friend. 90 games, 16 games in a season. Over 5 years. Probably every game since Super Bowl XXXI.

I believe Palpatine meant home sellout streak. So 90 divided by 8 is 11+ years unless your counting home playoff games and pre-season. Basically the Pats have sold out every homegame since Parcells 1st season.

Boston used to be. At least The Sox were 1a and the Bruins 1b. Then Jeremy Jacobs bought the team. 25 years later, the Bruins are now the #4 team in town just barely ahead of the Revolution.

Its at 101 in a row now. The Fins game a few weeks ago was 100 sellouts in a row. But I am pretty sure that counts playoff games too.

The Lions in last? Uh, I think not. Though they suck, the Lions get easily the most press and the most importance placed on them. If anything Detroit sports teams are more like this:

1. Lions
2. Red Wings (only because the Wings do not get any publicity until after football season; THEN, the place goes hockey-wild.)
3. Pistons
4. Tigers

So, hockey is #1 during the spring, but not until after the football season is over. The hockey fans are more rabid, but there are more football fans.

Chuck,

In the western end of the Bluegrass State, I'll go with this for pro sports:

1) St. Louis Cardinal Baseball
2) St. Louis Ram Football
3) Titan Football
4) PGA (Russ Cochran and Kenny Perry are locals)
5) NBA teams featuring former Wildcat players

Now, if we incorporate all sports into the mix, UK basketball stands as number 1 with the rest sliding down a notch.

Speaking of college hoops, the Commodores seem frisky this year, I wish you luck in all but 2 regular season games.
