It has become almost a legend.

The Ohio Cup.
This morning, it kept up it's residency in Cleveland, with the Red Legs from Cincinnati failing to bring home the
Where in Cleveland is another question. We think it is somewhere in Progressive Field, but no one is sure. It only makes an appearance once a year, and then goes away again. It's like the Easter Bunny, only without chocolate filled eggs or jelly beans.
So now that we have the Ohio Cup, what do we do? Can you really consider it a win with the series split yet again? No one has actually really won the cup in a few years. The Indians just keep winning it by default really.
Should we gloat? Parade around any Reds fan that we know?

If you don't think that the Reds fans are disappointed, you obviously don't know how much the Ohio Cup means to them...
Ohio Cup stays in Cleveland....maybe next year to bring back the iconic trophy to the QC

The Reds didn’t win the Ohio Cup. How am I supposed to face the world now?

Goodness gracious how many more players do we need to give the Reds before they can win the Ohio Cup?

It doesn't matter, consider, we went from the Gutter to the Grail in just a few short days....
@mlbastian Coming back from those losses in Cincinnati to keep the trophy, you might say they went from the gutter to the Ohio Cup.

And because we STILL own the Cup's rights.
If I where Swisher, I'd be riding around the ball park on a police horse drinking Dortmunder Gold out of the OHIO Cup. #RollTribe
