I guess it made us believe that they could win it too!
It was a BLAST! Myself, my sister, and her (now) husband (a Reds fan romance
) flew in from South Florida to Cincy for games 1 and 2 of the NLCS, and drove from FLA to Cincy for the World Series. We had a blast in games 1 and 2, went to visit relatives in Chicago while the series was in "ChOAKland" expecting to come back for games 6 and 7 in Cincy, but instead stopped back in Cincy for the celebration in Fountain Square.
PS I knew it was a good sign when we were late for game 1 of the WS, were rushing through some kind of parking garage close to Riverfront, and bumped in to REDS GREAT Mario Soto, who was also racing to get into the stadium before first pitch. We all yelled "Hey Mario, you were the BEST!" He smiled, waved, and kept on "fast walking" toward the stdium.
