I have never in my entire life heard anyone say "Cincy," except for people who live outside of Cincinnati. Written shorthand, most people I know use "Cinti."

I think I've heard that once since I've been back (4 years) and it wasn't from a local. Cincinnatee is just easier to say and rolls off the tounge, where as the other doesn't make sense and requires an effort to pronounce it that way.

Then this affirms your residence outside the city. Hell, even ESPN uses Cincy ... and it's the locals that use Cincy and out-of-towners use Cinci (which you are, aren't you?).

Fans often refer to the city and its teams as "Cincy" for short. Even the Reds' official website uses that name frequently.

Honey, I lived in Cincinnati for 21 years. Been gone for 4. And I've still never heard a local say "Cincy." Never.

Folks from out of town, trying to be hip, yes. And last I checked, ESPN was out of town.

So .... the ESPN remark gets coverage, but Cincy Magazine and the Reds nickname by the locals are somehow left out? Gotcha!

Hell, just google the city's own website with the term Cincy then search Cinci ... tell me your opinion on the local base's opinion then. It's almost that like the term Cinci doesn't even exist through the city site.
