Don't get me wrong, I like it and it's exciting. But for me, it's more the anticipation of what's to come. Every Reds season is like a book waiting to get written.
I feel the same way, Roy. I will be at work watching GameCast on my computer when I can. I used to 1/2 day it every year and watch the game at home. The last time I did this was when umpire John McSherry passed away during the 1996 OD game. That whole incident was so weird that I have never done it since. I also felt that the REDS stood a better chance to win if I did not watch and felt like I wasted a 1/2 day of vacation if they lost (which seemed to be most of the time in those days). You die-hards can relate to the weird things that your brain does to you in order to get a REDS win. lol
Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.
