The Fascinating Professional Athletics Past And Present Of Cincinnati

By Connor Sullivan

Cincinnati is definitely a city with a rich and interesting history. Many people are aware that the city was once called Porkopolis due to the large amount of pork produced in the downtown area. But, what some people fail to realize is that there are many other great things about the city in the past and present as well. For example, Cincinnati orthodontics and Cincinnati braces are also known for their quality and excellence. In addition to doing well in the field of dentistry, Cincinnati also has a great tradition in professional sports. Currently there are two major pro sports teams in the downtown area, the Cincinnati Reds of Major League Baseball (MLB) and the Cincinnati Bengals of the National Football League (NFL). Also, in the now fairly far off past, the Queen City had a basketball team known as the Cincinnati Royals, for which NBA hall of famer and University of Cincinnati graduate Oscar Robertson played. In the upcoming paragraphs all three of these interesting professional sports teams will be discussed along with a review of how the two currently existing teams have done in their recent seasons.

The Cincinnati Reds are one of the older teams in professional baseball and in fact used to go by the name the Cincinnati Red Stockings and currently, the team competes in the Central division of the National League. In their past the team has had both some excellent success and some truly awful failures. In fact, from the year 1970 to 1976 the team were anointed with the nickname of “The Big Red Machine”, which was a time of previously unheard of success for the team that brought two World Series Championships. The most notorious player of all time was Pete Rose, who on talent and achievements alone deserves to be in the hall of fame. However, his partaking in and admitting to gambling on baseball games while playing, has barred him from receiving that magnanimous honor.

The other important professional sports team in Cincinnati is the Cincinnati Bengals who compete in professional football. The team has in fact never won a Super Bowl and was closest when Boomer Esiason played at Quarterback, losing in the Super Bowl to San Francisco. In the recent past the team has found some success under Coach Marvin Lewis, and they in fact have made the post season two times in the past five seasons.

Lastly, the Cincinnati Royals used to be a professional basketball team in the area. A local standout from the University of Cincinnati named Oscar Robertson, who is now an NBA hall of famer, was the star of the team and they met with a reasonable amount of success. The team in fact had been shifted around all over the nation, originating in Rochester then stopping in Cincinnati and Kansas City before making their final stop in Sacramento where they are now known as the Kings.

Despite the fact that most of them are not horribly successful these days, as anyone can tell from the preceding paragraphs, Cincinnati has a very diverse and fascinating history in professional sports.

Connor Sullivan visited several Cincinnati orthodontics practices for quotes on pricing braces for his children. He visited a Cincinnati braces provider for help straightening his adult teeth.
