Re: Sad day for Reds Fans- Joe has Rounded 3rd and headed home!Joe passed away overni
Well, I think I'm just about done with the sniffles and then I come home and read more of this thread. This is weird. I feel the loss here as much as I have with friends I have lost. I only met Joe a couple times and only spoke to him very briefly on those occasions, yet I feel like I have lost a close friend.
Since Joe passed I have been in Detroit, Toledo, then St. Louis, and then back home tonight. I have been wearing Reds gear since yesterday and people in those cities who saw my shirt or hat have mentioned Joe and how sad they are, people who aren't even from Cincinnati. I never thought about how well known he would have been in other cities, but I heard folks talking about him in Detroit and St. Louis and there was something in the St. Louis paper today as well. I think Joe was the only person who didn't know how much he meant to so many people.
