View Full Version : Friday Frivolity

I'm not sure that I can top the Joe Mays signing for Friday frivolity, but keeping an eye on Dayton prospect Johnny Cueto has me dreaming of the day we can say his name as a Red.

Not because he has given up just 1 hit in the last 12 innings, but because what a great announcer name! "Now pitching for Cincinnati, Johnny Cueyyyyyyyyyyyyytoooooooo!" Just imagine how many times George Grande will give us his Spanish "accent" with this one.

So, for a little Friday Frivolity, what are your favorite PA names from the Reds past? I would have to say Chico Ruiz would give one a lot to work with.

Beeeeen-i-toooo San-ti-aaaaaaaaaaaa-go!

One time there was this little boy sitting in the seat right behind me. Every time they announced Benito Santiago, he would quitely repeat his name over and over about 25 times.

It was cute and was the first thing that came to my mind.

Pretty much anything foreign tops the list, but as far as domestic Reds go, what about Pokey Reese? Or Bip Roberts?
