Well we are only 15 hours away from the first pitch at Great American Ballpark. Growing up I remember working on the farm as a kid and my Great Uncle Em would come buy and he always had the Reds playing on his radio in his truck. I even remember asking him why he liked listening to the game so much and he said I would understand when I got older.... I also remember my dad buying a brand new broom to mount on our mailbox for a week after the 1990 World Series.... But to be honest, I never truly became a Reds fan until I went to my first game at Cinergy Field a few years later....
Now I will admit it isn't easy being a Reds fan sometimes, especially after the all-star break, but as with almost any professional sports team here in Ohio....we seem to have some sort of a curse... Unfortunately I will not be able to go to Opening Day this year because I will be in the weather center watching it on a 13 inch monitor getting the forecast ready, but I got a feeling that this season will be a little different. I feel that we might have the right mixtures in place to make this year count, pending the one thing that always "injures" us: injuries. As long as we stay healthy, I think the Reds can do it....So put on your rally caps for now because hopefully we will do something this year that we haven't done in 20 years.....
Have a good one and Go Reds!
