Top High School Rivalries Should Include CPS

I am quite surprised that none of the rivals [September Cincy "Top 10 High School Rivalries"] include any CPS schools. CPS is the largest district in the region and one of the largest in the state.  

Rivalries between Withrow, Woodward, Taft, Hughes and Walnut Hills have existed for generations.  For the 2011 season, as with every season, there are tailgate parties, booster and alumni events, marching band competitions and other festivities.

I hope that the 2012 version of this story will be more inclusive of CPS and ethnically diverse schools as well.
