You must live in the Logan area, where they have both the Braves and Reds on radio. I've never understood this. When I hear a fan of the Braves tell me they listen to the Braves on WVOW, I nearly puke. Everyone loves a winner and in the days when the Braves were really good, that was understandable, but these days only the TBS broadcasts, in the days when we only had 30 channels and the Reds deserted WV, was what feeded them (many Cubs fans also got that way because of WGN). These days, there are few stations that carry the Reds here. Only WCHS unless it preempts Rush Limbaugh and a station in Huntington. a far cry from the days when there were three or four stations carrying the Reds including WSAZ in Huntington. Thank God for DirecTV and FSO, not to mention Suddenlink Cable.
