Re: What inspired your avatar?
On Reds Broadcasts in the early '70's, Jim McIntyre/Al Michaels/Joe Nuxhall would proudly proclaim that with every Reds homerun that player would get a barrel (or 55 gallons) of Super M Marathon gasoline.
From 1970-1972 Johnny Bench alone got 112 barrels of Super M. That's 6,160 gallons of gas. A 1970 Buick Century had a 20 gallon fuel tank. That's 308 fill-ups.
Imagine that street value today.
Oh BTW - My avatar changes a few times a year. Just depends on what the feeling is that week/day/month
Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.
