Heather has to be on cloud 900,000.
Fixed that for you, LOL
I am BEYOND pumped up right now! I can't believe I was there to witness this fantastic moment. It was so exciting that I can't even find all the words right now. I may have to post more tomorrow, LOL
I also have to get up for work in about six hours and I haven't even gone to bed yet! The game ended around 10 PM and I didn't get home until about midnight. I would have stayed downtown even longer if I hadn't gone to the game by myself. I REALLY wanted to head to Fountain Square and live it up for a few hours!
The air at the ballpark was totally electric. You felt like something big was going to happen but you didn't know when to expect it. I was sitting in my seat early in the game just taking in the moment and for some strange reason, I didn't feel like I was by myself if that makes any sense. We were a big Reds family tonight and everyone was just excited and completely pumped up right from the start. I talked to the girls sitting to either side of me for most of the game (very nice people), talked to the guys sitting around us, met up with some other folks at the RedsTweetUp event (Jamie Ramsey is a VERY cool dude and you may see me with a Better Off Red sign in a blog photo soon!), tweeted whenever I got a chance, and partied my absolute heart out with everyone after Jay's HR landed in the birm off to the right of my seat (was sitting under the smoke stacks in the second row). Drew's HR robbing catch was also not far away from my seat so that made the excitement even bigger for my section. When Jay's HR went out I thought the crowd was going to jump onto the field! The electricity went up about two thousand fold and the fireworks were literally right above my head (have cool photo of the fireworks behind the smoke stacks from my seat). Watching those guys celebrate brought tears to my eyes and I am not kidding when I tell you that I probably took close to 300 photos of the post game celebration. Some of them may not be totally clear but that's all right, LOL
I am going to treasure this night and even though I still have two more games (possibly three) to go to later this week, tonight is going to stay with me for a very long time. I wasn't home when the Reds clinched in 1995 and obviously the heartbreack of 1999 is with all of us, but tonight was just incredible and I feel privileged that I got to witness it in person. I am BEYOND proud of this entire team and I cannot wait to go to my playoff game next week and cheer my heart out for the NL Central Champion Cincinnati Reds!!
(BTW-Will try to post some pics tomorrow evening. I think I got some really fun ones of all the celebrating!)
Ok, I really should try to get some sleep now, LOL
