A friend of mine has a unique eight game losing streak going for Reds games he attends. It started as a joke at four last season, but after Wednesday, he's up to eight straight losses. Anyone else have a win or loss streak?

My Cincinnati game appearances have been so wide spread over the years I have no idea. It's been about two years since I've been to a game so I really don't know.

thats some tough luck to get hit with 8 in a row. maybe you should just stay away from GABP, ;) i'm currently on a one game winning streak from last night, and i may have frostbite, lol.

I had an eight-game losing streak in the Mr. Red Race a few years back.

Take that, pythag.

I have never seen the Reds lose in person. Two wins in the 1986 season at Riverfront and one win in Atlanta at Turner field in Adam Dunn's first game ever.

As a kid, my folks would take me to one game a year. I was 16 before I saw a winner.

I think I attended 7-8 games last year before the Reds won a game.

I half expected to receive a restraining order from John Allen.

At the end of 2001 through the very beginning of 2003 I attended 14 straight losses (thank you Josias Manzanillo). I saw 6 straight wins with the 2003 squad, somehow.

The signature speaks for itself, I think...

Reds record when I am in attendance 2006: 1-13

Quite an accomplishment

especially considering they were pretty good at home last season...I saw my first win in a while last night.

In the last 2 years, the Reds are 3-13 in the 2 homestands we attended.

For that reason, we have chosen the Nationals/Pirates homestand in May to attend this year. We just want some wins.

I had an 8 game losing streak stretching across about 6 years. Then last year they were 3-0 when I was there. Go figure. I did have a 3 game streak of seeing Elmer Dessens pitch involving both the Bats and the Reds, that was amusing.

I don't know a record, but they usually win when I go.....


However, doing what I do, I don't get to go very often....

I was undefeated at Reds games until Eric Milton arrived, now I have 3 losses, and he was the starter in in 2 of them (the other was Harang)

I've only been to about 5 Reds games since 2002, but I haven't been to a loss yet.

I'm really superstitious about stuff like this too. I used to get season tickets to Columbus Crew games, and they went 7-0 in games I made it to, then lost the one home game I didn't. I made sure I made it to the next one and they lost.

I had a different kind of streak about 5-6 years ago. I attended 4 games that saw a rain delay during the game in each one. None were cancelled, but the rain delay in each was a minimum of an hour each time.

1-0 this year after today. I can't remember if my last game last season was a W or a L...

The Reds were I think 3-7 when I saw them last year (in two cities), but they've now wone three in a row when I've seen them so maybe things are looking up.

3 games thus far this year, 3-0 record.

Will resume my role as bringer of good luck on 4.21.

I have never seen the Reds lose in person. Two wins in the 1986 season at Riverfront and one win in Atlanta at Turner field in Adam Dunn's first game ever.

Adam Dunn's debut was July 20, 2001 against the Florida Marlins. I was on vacation in Florida and my wife and I made it over to catch the game at Pro Player Stadium when we heard he got called up.

Sounds like I am wrong. It's been a while, but I thought I remembered it being Adam's first something (first home run?) Obviously, my memory is not that great about this. I believe it was something I was told by someone sitting around me. Could just be that it was the first time I ever saw Dunn. Sorry to give out bad info.

I'm 11-0 lifetime. If only I could escape more often...

You can go ahead and chalk up 7/26 as a W. (the only game I can get to this year... as of now)
