Lots of folks remember the Linder years. Just to pile on here.....They are celebrating the quickest season to 2 million at GAB tonight and you know what the team is doing? .....dollar hot dogs. No lie. Straight out of the book of John Allen.
When it was Lindner folks remembered the lockout, then prior it was the 81 strike, prior to that it was probably Dick Wagner, prior to that Crosley was a dangerous area, prior to that the Reds couldn't score and the Deacon loved defense more than offense, all the way back to 1869 they stopped coming because they lost a couple of games.
Seems folks in Cincinnati have holding a grudge down pretty well to me.
