There were 3 older men sitting near us with their wives last night. They were screaming all of the typical anti-reds stuff when ever they made the slightest mistakes. Some of their rantings sounded vaguely familur.....but I digress. They rode Clayton hard all night and went into total hystronics when he muffed a play early in the game. From them on it was "great trade Krivsky this" and great trade Krivsky that".
One jerk was in the middle of a choice anti-Clayton rant when he (Clayton) launched a 2 run homer. Oddly enough, he (Jerk in stands) meekly sat down and was much quieter for a few minutes.
Sounds an awful like the gamethread from Reds Live last night. Did they have labtops?
