A CLASS ACT.
I agree. He certainly sounded like a standup guy and a solid voice in the booth. I wish him luck.
But there's real subtext in his final words: "you have a football game to watch."
Indeed, the heart of the city's fandom beats in PB Stadium. This organization has miles to go before they catch the feeling that's been created by Marvin Lewis and Co. down just a few city blocks west.
Right now, that's the story with the Reds' organization, whether you care to admit it or not: it's still the patient etherized upon the table, and the Bengals, well the Bengals have lapped the Reds many times over.
