Re: Jay Bruce: "Sometimes it's hard to tell whether you're at home or on the road."
I gotta say, I read C Trent's article and unfortunately, many of the dozens of new threads floating around RedsZone after Tuesday's loss, seem to simply prove that what he is saying about the fans is true. It seems that the only way most fans are going to be happy is if this team goes 162-0 and win every game by a 10-0 score.
And yes, it does seem that Cincinnati sports teams seem jinxed at times by weird events. But I have watched sports for over 45 years, and every team that wins a championship usually has a little bit of "luck" - even if that "luck" is a rival team hit by the injury bug. I have seen a lot of losses by Cincinnati sports teams due to one pitch, one error, one missed tackle, one bad punt, etc.
To me, its just a game, and if the Reds lose today, we've had a great year, and unless the Mayan calendar thing is correct and December is the Apocalypse, then pitchers and catchers will report in February to start on next season.
Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.
