I didn't see it posted on here anywhere, and figured everyone would be interested to know if it hasn't been posted already. I read that Votto, and Mr. Redlegs were at ESPN yesterday filming a sportscenter commercial! I can't wait to see it, these are usually pretty funny, nice to see Votto and the Reds getting some national exposure.

I agree. Love those SC commercials.

I can't remember the last Reds player to appear in one - if ever? Good pub for the Reds and Joey.

I am friends with someone who starred in one of my favorite SC commercials, it was fun to hear about how they do those.
I dont recall there ever being a Red in one, was Griffey ever in one?

I am good friends with the mr red leg, who lost his head off the 4wheeler... i know its not going to be him. But one of the best moments ever at a reds game until last season.

Mascot stories are awesome :)
I was at a college football game a few years ago, the visiting mascot "stole" our mascots scooter while he was off it interacting with the fans. The opposing mascot took off on it, came back around, and our mascot clotheslined him off it; they had to get an ambulance to scrape that terrapin off the ground :)
I was a bartender a few years back as well and had to kick Wool-E-Bull out of our bar for passing out on it after the last game of the season.

Why? What happened last season?

Side note, I applied for the job as the Bulls mascot 2 summers ago for the fun of it, but never got a call. I think it would be fun to act like a fool with approval, and no one knows who you are.

The best Sportscenter commercial ever is the Charlie Steiner and Evander Holyfield one.

I liked when the power went out in the ESPN building because Lance Armstrong took a break from peddling the generator.

They haven't announced that yet. I would bet around opening day though.

I just looked up the picture of it, very awesome cover! I wonder if this is the first time a middle reliever has ever made the cover of a pre-season magazine? lol. Maybe Joba Chamberlain.

It prob is, Joba was prob starter at time he was cover for any mag, this is prob first for middle man when that was his current role.
