Not a brag post, I'm just wondering how many games we make it to around here... There's all this talk about the fans not supporting the team and all and not packing the park.

I know I'm doing my part, I've been to 19 so far counting today (Sunday 6/18) but then, I live in the city of Cincinnati about 10 minutes away, and work close to downtown.

Where are y'all from and how many games at GABP have you made it to?

April 8 vs. Pirates (win)
May 27 vs. Diamondbacks (very dissappointing 0-7 loss)
June 17 vs. ChiSox (at least I got a cool poster)

Will maybe go to 2-3 more. Live close to Ft. Wayne, IN., so it's a 3 hr. trip.

I am 2 hours north of Cincy.
Currently I am 2-8 on the season. If I did not have tickets already for June 27 and July 1, I would not attend anymore. But make a note not to attend those games, chances are I will cause a loss.

3 games so far this year...i've had tickets to a few others, but couldn't make it into town...only one more game planned, especially after this weekend's display of incompetance:help:

06-19-2006, 12:19 AM
They are 37 and 32 in games I've watched or listened too! :)

0-1 - just went opening day. I'm going to 2 more games in August. I'm 3+ hours away.

I don't want to go. We are like 1-11 with crowds over 30M so I don't want to have too many fans show up. :)

1. I went on Mother's Day against the Phillies. Claussen threw a gem, but the bats were asleep against Brett Myers.

I live 3 hours away.

4, all losses including Opening Day. I already have tickets for 11 more games but will go to more than that. I'll probably end up going to about 20-25 games. I live 30-40 minutes from the ballpark depending on day and gametime.

I've been to 1, I live around 3 and a half hours away. I plan on going to around 3-4 more if they stay in the race.

I've only seen one win all year long.

1. Loss to the Cubs on Opening Day
2. Win against the Pirates on April 6
3. Loss against the Marlins on April 18
4. Loss against the Astros on April 30
5. Loss against the Phillies on May 12
6. Loss against the Diamondbacks on May 26
7. Loss against the Cubs on June 9
8. Loss against the Brewers on June 13

I'm two hours away from town and have been to eight games so far and I'll be at at least five more over the next couple weeks.

1 so far. Loss to the Diamondbacks.

2 games I have tickets for including July 2 vs. Cleveland and a game in August vs. the Phillies.

My problem is more of finding someone genuinely interested that wants to go with me. I'd even go see the Royals next week if I could find someone to go with.

I had that problem until I realized it was ok to go to games by myself. I usually end up sitting near someone else who is also by themselves and having a nice conversation about the game, rather than having to talk to my wife about non-baseball topics. Try it, you might actually like it.

May 12 vs. Phillies
May 20 @ Tigers-extra innings loss
May 27 vs. Diamondbacks

I live about 2 and a half hours north of Cincy. I have tickets to one more game but will probably end up going to a couple more before the end of summer.

I'd love to but to state the not-so-obvious: the single female thing I have going on makes me weary of leaving a game, alone, late in the evening. Perhaps with summer evenings it's not so bad, the walk is definately better since the days of Riverfront.

4/3 Loss vs Cubs 16-7
4/29 Win vs Astros 6-3
5/26 Loss vs D'Backs 3-0
5/27 Loss vs D'Back 7-0
5/28 Win vs D'Backs 5-4
6/17 Loss to White Sox 8-6

2-4 in total after a tremendous record of something like 8-1 last season.

We have scheduled 4 more for this year, one in July, one in August, and 2 in September. Other will probably be added in depending on time.

We live 3 1/2 hours away [the way we drive :) ]

That's certainly understandable. I will admit that I've lived in some brutal urban decay areas, so I'm a little less wary of such things. But I definitely see where you're coming from. That's a big reason I like the 6 PM start time.

I sometimes park right on 3rd street - so there's not a long walk. But I'm very used to going to the games alone - there is no one (friends or family) that likes to go to see the Reds.

Been to 3- Opening Day, and 2 against Philadelphia in May. We usually go to 15 -20 games a year- we live 3 hours away, but my work schedule and my 2 kids' youth baseball schedule have complicated our time we have to go.


Back when I was single, I went to alot of games alone. I actually kind of miss it.

0-1..Went to the Sunday game vs the Cubs June 11...wanted to puke when the wheels fell off for Weathers(game he was DLed after like 4 pitches)..compounded by all the Cubs fans sitting around and gloating. It so reminded me of Graves last game(I was at that one too). Starting to think I should leave the game in the sixth inning...

I live about 150 miles away...not to mention the recent addition to our family 2 months ago.

0 Unfortunately It hasn't worked out real well for me this year on many fronts. I would still like to make it down, we'll see what happens!

Since I am in Springfield only about 2 hrs. away, I was hoping to catch a ride with Rick White to a game but the FO screwed me out of that plan awhile back and now I have no hope! :o)~

15 games, (11-4) Opening Day, Last Tuesday, Felipe BB-head, and Dunn Figurine Nights were my only losses, I guess I just need to not go on give-away days, or other special occasions (opener), I have seen 2 walk offs, 3-1 Arroyo performances (and 1 Arroyo homer). Plan on going to at least 20 more games, hopefully my percentage will remain the same and end up 26-9 or .733 win percentage.

Once. Washington. The game before Griffey came off the DL and hit the walk-off. I'm 1-0. Probably try to get back down when I get some funds. I'm about 90 minutes away in prime driving conditions, maybe 110 if traffic is bad. I'm usually a walk-upper. What I should start doing is buying tickets for future games when I buy my tickets for the current game, then I won't have to save up cash for the next game. I don't usually eat or drink much at the park, I'm cheap. :)

Only been to one so far this year. Live about 7 hours away so I try to make it to 2 or 3 a year. Went to Pittsburgh game the first sunday of the year, a loss:(
That was the first time they loss since to a game i went to at gabp. The rides home are a lot quicker when they win. I have to boys under 3 so its hard to take them right now. Hope to go more often when they are older.

I have been to five games altogether--three in Cincinnati and two in Pittsburgh. I live about two hours and 45 minutes to three hours away from GABP, but I only live about two hours from PNC.

I am going to the game at Cleveland on Sunday (I also live only about two hours from the Jake), and I am planning on going to 4-5 more games at GABP this year, as well as one more game at PNC.


So far, I am 2-3 this season:
4/3 vs. Cubs (Opening Day); L 7-16
5/16 at Pirates; L 3-9
5/17 at Pirates; L 2-7
5/28 vs. Diamondbacks; W 5-4 (Valentin game-ending PH HR)
6/14 vs. Brewers; W 3-0, 11 innings (Dunn game-ending HR)


I have been to 56 Reds games in my lifetime; their record in those games is 28-27-1:

26 games at Riverfront Stadium ( I refuse to call it by that other name): 15-10-1
18 games at Great American Ballpark: 8-10
8 games at PNC Park, Pittsburgh: 2-6
2 games at Three Rivers Stadium, Pittsburgh: 1-1 (the win was Game 4 of the 1990 NLCS)
1 game at "new" Comiskey Park, Chicago: 1-0
1 game at Miller Park, Milwaukee: 1-0

Two, which is likely all I will make, Memphis is a 7 to 8 hour drive each each way (15 hour round trip) haul to Cincy.
