Will they be giving anything out special? Do we bring our own? What does everyone plan to do?

We don't need any silly gimmicks in Cincinnati. We come to the park and bring our voices and our sons and daughters. Go Reds!!!

I disagree with this logic, I've heard people use it a lot, but why do rally towels/thundersticks mean you cant bring your kids and use your voice as well? It's the playoffs, and it shouldn't feel like a regular season game because it's not. I just don't understand why a rocking stadium would be looked at as a gimmick.

I agree with you. I've always thought the "Terrible Towel" was incredibly lame but I definitely think we should treat the playoffs different than a regular season game.

let's see what the options are:

Monkeys: taken
Thunderstix: taken
Towels: Taken

Hmm, everybody put their heads together and come up with something different.

"Kroger, Duke Energy, Cincinnati Bell and Scotts will have their logos on 160,000 rally towels that will be given away at home games during the playoffs."

Kazoos. I always thought 40,000+ kazoos, played simultaneously, would make a terrifying sound.

If we are going to do a gimmick, we should have a new one, and one with local relevance. Fog horns or coneys or something, I don't know. But rally (terrible) towels. Really?! Didn't Pittsburgh do that? Don't we hate everything Pittsburgh? Next thing you know we're going to be throwing doggie biscuits at the field.

Can't it be a playoff atmosphere because it is sold out and the fans are yelling louder than vuvuzelas.

Again, no one is keeping you from yelling louder than a vuvuzela. It will be sold out, so if you don't want a towel, maybe you should just leave it for someone else who does, lol. personally, I think its cool to have something to keep from a playoff game.

The reds will only have one home playoff game so it doesn't really matter.

Bridge_To_Lidge - You don't know that. The Reds have a good rotation and some dangerous bats in their lineup. I think the series goes five games and once you get there, it's anybody's series!!!!

I am not sure what it is-I must have missed it being handed out as I didnt get one my only experience in Philly-but they hand something out at Philly games that make you reak of a 2 month old cheesesteak.

I just had my first Philly cheesesteak the other day and it was delicious.

I wouldn't be so sure about that, you guys have a pretty solid team, and I think you will be able to put up a better fight than that :D

Yep, which is fine with me. I really don't mind the Reds taking the first two in Philly.

I'll see what I can do, he'll probably be one of the guys grabbing extras though, he just has nothing else to complain about since the Reds are in the playoffs now, so it has come down to rally towel gimmicks. :D lol

Justincredible gets it!

I'll bet any Phillies fan on here that cinci sweeps this series. The Phils had a good run, but they are in for a good awakening.

Haha :) I wold buy one though if you do get your hands on an extra (if anyone gets an extra would lvoe ot have a momento from this years team to add to my Reds collection.
I am finishing up the touches on my man room, have a few things getting framed right now. Hope to have pics soon, will send em over to compare to your Bucs walls :) I cant display even clsoe to what I want-am working on a signed jersey from each of the BRM starters for example, no way to get 9+ jerseys in a small room :)
