Re: Favorite Reds Memories/Why are you a Reds fan?
Unfortunately, I was born in the 90s so I did not get to experience much excitement for professional sports here in Cincinnati. I went to a few Reds games as a kid and remember asking my dad why people were booing Aaron Boone. I also remember the excitement when we got Griffey.
I sort of followed them here and there, but never really cared. It was hard to since they were never expected to do anything. I became a die hard fan in 2010 when I went to a game on a whim because my friend invited to me to go. It happened to be HOF weekend where the Reds hit 3 HRs and pounced the Rockies 8-1. I was hooked. I have been going to games every year since then. I have found it fun to know the ins and outs of the ballpark and all of the fan interaction the players and announcers participate in. I went to a preseason game for the Bengals and found it extremely boring with no fun games or fan interactions.
My greatest Reds memory would have to be that. Just enjoying games with my dad and soon to be wife. Carrying in a soft sided cooler full of drinks and getting the $1 hot dogs before the game. If I had to pick one game, it would be the Pete Rose Ceremony game where Votto hit a walk off homer in extras to win it.
Although, if I was at last night's game, that would surely be up there.
