    Throughout the weekend, Charlie Sheen attended the Cincinnati Reds series against the Pittsburgh Pirates as part of his father's weekend-long 70th birthday celebrations. Since most Americans know Sheen as our favorite Vatican assassin warlock, it's easy to forget that the actor has embraced his father's Ohio roots; however, Reds fans were reminded of his generousity on Sunday, when the younger Sheen donated $50,000 to the Reds community fund. Sheen's donation matched "the Voice of the Reds" Marty Brennaman's funds raised for the charity. In a statement released by the Reds, Sheen had some kind words to say regarding his hopes for the effect of his donation:  
The City of Cincinnati has opened its arms to me so graciously and I'm compelled to give something back. If this contribution points one kid in the right direction, then we've done our job.
  Unlike Brennaman, Sheen didn't also shave his head on the field at Great American Ballpark. However, I think it's safe to say he hinted at something even better. In an interview during the game Sunday, Sheen reportedly said he wants to run for mayor of Cincinnati. My mind is already churning with possible changes he'd make to the city. Will Bengals pubs start running "Tiger's Blood" drink specials? Should the Reds go ahead and adopt "We're Addicted to Winning" as their slogan? Will the waitresses at River Downs Casino be known as Goddesses? Would Charlie root for Xavier or UC in the Crosstown Shootout? It boggles the mind...
