    They were Cincinnati's darlings long before the Bengals were invented, and remain so.

      What sort of team wears red baseball caps with the letter "C" for communists on the bill?
         A team called THE REDS, that's who!

        ...between 1954 and 1959, the Cincinnati team was officially renamed "Redlegs", so as to differentiate them from those Russian and Chinese fellows.

        As explained in Wikipedia:

        Twice in the 1950s (the McCarthy era), the Reds, fearing that their traditional club nickname would associate them with the threat of Communism, officially changed the name of the team to the Cincinnati Redlegs.[1] From 1956 to 1960, the club's logo was altered to remove the term "REDS" from the inside of the "wishbone C" symbol. The "REDS" reappeared on the 1961 uniforms, but the point of the C was removed, leaving a smooth, non-wishbone curve. The traditional home-uniform logo was restored in 1967.

          and always called them the Redlegs.  I actually think it has a nice ring.

            A:  Hey...I've got a bunch of redlegs eatin' on my hosta leaves.

            B:  Yeah.  They're chewin' on my tomato blossoms, too.

            A:  Garden guy says to spray 'em with soapy water...only non-toxic way to get rid of redlegs.
