Was Johnny's date for the evening Pat Berry? I've heard things for a long time now.

Man, I have heard too, a good friend of mine used to pitch in the Reds system for a few years, and told me it was true-he knew how big a fan I am of his, and asked me if I knew my hero batted for the other team. Oh well, still the greatest. Sad to see a star of Benchs level have to have his pic taken with that idiot so many times though ;)

One pic I'd never thought I'd see. What is the connection of Dubbya and JB?!?!

Also, what's this gay talk?

PEACE

One of the quotes from AP this is why I said birthday party: President Bush, right, poses with baseball hall of fame player former Cincinnati Reds catcher Johnny Bench, left, at the Montgomery Inn Boathouse, Monday, Oct. 29, 2007, in Cincinnati, Ohio. Bush dropped in on Bench's 60th birthday party. (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais)

Please, those gay rumors started by Dick Young of the NY Post, a worthless sports writer that was more interested in stirring junk up than reporting on the performance. Johnny's been married 3 times and has a teenage boy, plus was a playboy back in the day. The gay stuff is just a bunch of bs.

Also, Johnny's birthday is December 7th, Pearl Harbor Day for all of you history buffs out there.

Also, I just met Johnny last Saturday, October 27th at a show in St. Louis, and he was incredibly nice to my son and I.

Agreed. I met Johnny at Redsfest a couple of years ago and got my picture taken with him. Normally when I get my picture taken with a player they just kind of put their arm around you or whatever, but Johnny pulled me VERY close to him. There was no space between me and JB. It caught me off guard a little, but in the end it wasn't a problem...he's a freakin icon!:D


I'm a chick, by the way.

Good one. You had me going for a second.

I'd heard all the jerk rumors about Bench too and then met him a few years back and he was genuinely nice to me too.

Alot of the negativity surrounds his opinions about Pete Rose during the gambling scandal. As it turned out, Johnny was right, and all us diehard Pete Rose fans have egg on our face. I was more of a Rose fan than Bench fan, but Johnny never lied to us about gambling and Pete did.

I know you were serious. But the beginning of your story had me thinking you were a guy that he pulled very close, until you said you're a chick.
