Living in Fl. and picking up WCKY Cincinnati 1, Ohio with tower in Covington,Ky. back in the 40's and 50's I became a Reds fan. Was a Washington fan 1st in war, 1st in peace and last in the American league because we went up to Washington every year to see a game and got to see them play in the spring. Became a Ted Williams fan because we would see him fishing down here just like the rest of us and got to talk to him a few times as a kid. Became a Redskin fan because that was all we could get on the Radio and then when we got a TV, they were all we could get on it. Became UK basketball fan due to WCKY again. We could pick up there games better than we could pick up Fl. games, but basketball wasn't a big thing down here. Also a lot of our fathers wouldn't allow us to wear shorts. As my dad said if they can wear long pants playing tennis, we could wear them playing basketball. Became a Boston fan in basketball because they were all we read about in the sports pages of the paper down here and they were all we could pick up on the radio from time to time and after we got a TV, they were on almost every Sunday.
