Re: out of town fans
I did live in Cincy for 10 years, but I grew up in Louisville. My mother and her entire family are from Cincy and of course Louisville was the Cincy market. I had the good fortune of becoming a fan of baseball and the Reds just prior to the 1990 season, and that of course is what cemented me for life. I used to go to sleep during the summer listening to Marty and Joe on AM 790. And then I'd read the box score in the morning. And I hated West Coast swings because I usually couldn't stay up to hear the end of the game and had to wait an extra day to find out because the paper wouldn't have it either. And since the whole city wasn't talking about the Reds the wait was excruciating. Now I'm in SC and the internet has improved my connection to the Reds in ways I couldnt' have imagined 15 years ago.
