Earlier today ESPN1530 and 700 WLW radio host Lance McAlister took some snapshots of the Cincinnati Bearcats basketball team at the Children’s Hospital in Cincinnati. Clearly this is a team that doesn’t positively influence the Cincinnati community and society.
After the UC-Xavier brawl, I decided to take a step back and not write my initial reaction to it, letting others voice their opinions instead. Heck, even 6 hours after the game, I had already seen it blazed on ESPN probably a hundred times so I was pretty much tired about reading/hearing/talking about it. When everyone remembers the fight, most people will only think of Yancy Gates clocking Kenny Frease with a right hook. Never mind that Tu Holloway was squawking at the Bearcats bench all game, has a reputation of doing that in the past, and is an overall narcissistic prick. Never mind that both Holloway and Mark Lyons pretty much advocated Xavier’s involvement in the fight calling themselves ‘gangsters’. Never mind that Kenny Frease went after a woman wearing Cincinnati gear in the crowd a few seats down from UC athletic director Whit Babcock. Never mind that he did a similar thing a couple games earlier when Xavier was visiting Vanderbilt. Never mind that Cincinnati correctly disciplined their players and forbade them to be at the Bearcats’ games during their suspension while Xavier’s suspended players were allowed to sit on the bench. Never mind that Cincinnati treated the situation overall FAR more seriously than Xavier did.
No, Xavier is the shining light in the city of Cincinnati and its students and athletes are perfect little angels. The University of Cincinnati is a school that recruits thugs and produces criminals. And pictures like these prove it:
There are about 30 more of these photos the 700 WLW website. Great work by the Cincinnati Bearcats basketball players, Lance McAlister, and the other volunteers.
Who knows, they may even be looking up Medical School Rankings soon on Guide to Healthcare Schools.
