She's 22 now and will graduate from Ohio U next spring. Tempus fugit.
That's good stuff.
I was a college Freshman when the Reds won it all on October 20, 1990. I didn't think I'd be getting my first prostate exam before the Reds won another one.
The 1990 series ended on a Saturday night. I was on an unfamiliar college campus in Haverford, PA, running the halls of my girlfriend's dorm looking for someone with a TV. Watched it with a bunch of strangers, jumped up and down on a stranger's bed when Benzinger caught the last out, then went to a party and learned the hard way that grain alcohol packs more of a wallop than wine coolers.
Today in History for 20th October 1990:
- 3 members of 2 Live Crew acquitted on obscenity charges in Florida
- Antiwar protest marches begin in 20 US cities (US-Iraq)
- Cincinnati Reds sweep Oakland A's in 86th World Series
