I noticed Section 110 seemed to have the most Reds fans of any in the park. I looked at parts of the game on MLB.TV and saw that some of the autograph seekers ended up in your section. I recognized a tall guy with reddish hair, wearing a Pete Rose jersey, who ended up there.
Did you notice how the big screens at the stadium never showed Reds fans and never showed replays of Reds defensive plays? It's like those screens are run by a propaganda ministry that refuses to acknowledge the existence of another team!
You were like 10 seats away from me. :O) And yeah, it's ALWAYS like that there. They never show replays of anything even remotely controversial (close plays) and certainly no highlights of the opposition. I see their point of view...but it's still dumb.
I was chatting most of the 2nd game with the Ondrusek's and quite a few relatives/friends of Jay. Really nice people. You can certainly see where Logan gets his height. His mom. She's close to 6 foot. Great lady too.
Anyway, last night was by far the least enjoyable nights of the 3 for me. Had 3 obnoxious drunk Astros fans sitting next to me all night. Completely clueless about the game. Constant questions amongst them about what a 6-3 was, or a P7, or "why is the K backwards?" Just non-stop. The sad part was the drunk guy trying to explain it but he clearly had no clue about ANYTHING. When they started slamming Mark Berry for standing in the coaching box and just calling him all sorts of garbage I finally told them about him just recently beating cancer...Kinda sad that's what it took to shut them up.
