Well, another season has come and gone. This is always a sad day for me as well as others I'm sure. No matter how badly the season went, it's awfully hard to say goodbye.

This stands to be a very interesting offseason with many, many questions to be answered; starting at the top....who manages this club? Will Adam Dunn's option be picked up? How will the bullpen be fixed? Stay tuned...

Enjoy football and basketball season, have a safe winter season and we'll regroup on March 31, 2008 against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Opening Day in......

Let's please not go through the day-by-day countdown. It's a terrific waste of bandwidth. If you want to run up your post count start a 'trade Dunn' thread. (sarcasum)

Nobody's forcing anybody to open this countdown thread. As I said, I've done it for four years and have received countless comments on it....and only two of them have been negative...the above two..

Reds reveal Opening Day plans
03/06/2008 10:30 AM ET
By Mark Sheldon / MLB.com

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Opening Day is always a regal affair in Cincinnati and it will be no different in 2008.

The Reds will open the regular season against the Diamondbacks on March 31 at Great American Ball Park. On Thursday, the club revealed its pregame ceremonial plans.

Hamilton County commissioner Todd Portune will throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Jazz vocalist and area resident Kathy Wade will sing the national anthem, with a flyover by four F-18 jets from the Marine All-Weather Fighter Attack Squadron 224.

There will be tributes paid to Joe Nuxhall, Bob Howsam and Sheldon "Chief" Bender, who all passed away since last season ended.

Team Cincinnati, which was the winner of NBC's "Clash of the Choirs," will sing before the game and perform "God Bless America" during the seventh-inning stretch.

The 89th Findlay Market Parade, an Opening Day staple, will have former Reds outfielder Cesar Geronimo serving as grand marshal. Geronimo is one of the 2008 Reds Hall of Fame inductees.

Now I am needing to purchase ONE ticket and everyone online is selling them in pairs. Any ideas?

Buy two and sell the other on EBAY for the price you paid for two. :D

Two weeks from today. Wow! I can't wait!

Right now Weather.com is showing 57 degrees and 60% chance of showers for Opening Day on the 10-day forecast. Still plenty of time for that to change into 70 degrees and sunny! ;)

We've entered the most exciting part of the countdown...the home stretch. It's been a long six months, but it many ways it seems like it's gone by in a flash.

Guarded optimism seems to be the theme of the board heading into Opening Day. We're all excited about the prospects of watching Johnny Cueto, Edinson Volquez, Joey Votto, Jay Bruce and others develop throughout the year on the Major League level. For the first time in a long time, this team has a legitimate hammer at the back end of the bullpen. Like him or not, Dusty Baker definetly brings a new attitute towards this team as far as national perception goes.

If the young guns in the rotation perform well, this will be a very good year for this team. If they don't....make it eight straight losing seasons...simple as that.

Opening Day is the most special day of the year for me and many, many others. It signifies all that is right with the world. It brings with it warm weather. It brings with it excitement. It brings with it tradition. It brings with it memories. It brings with it beautiful summer nights with the grill and a beer watching/listening to the game with friends. It brings with it the hope and promise of a brand new season of the game we all love so much.

So here we stand, one week away. One week from today many of us will congregate on downtown Cincinnati and Great American Ball Park to celebrate this greatest of days.

7 days!

I can't wait until Monday. I took my annual Opening Day vacation day from work so I can watch baseball all day long. I usually make the trip to Cincinnati sometime during the first week, but I can't make it this year. I expect to watch every pitch on TV this season. :thumbup:

Anyone who is going Monday, and would like to meet up at some point, maybe before or after the game, then let me know.

It's always a pleasure meeting up with RZers. Even for the first time.

I'm going to meet Chip at Fountain Square after the parade. If it's raining I told him I was going to be at O'Malleys In The Alley.
