Re: Is it ok to do this?
I'm 30 years old, for a few more days anyway, so I don't remember the glory days, though I am old enough to remember Johnny Bench as my favorite baseball player ever by far. I still remember being on a family camping trip at Natural Bridge when one of my great-uncles told me that # 5 was going to retire at the end of the season, and then I was at Johnny Bench Night, where I got to see him his his last home run. That's still the greatest single moment I've witnessed at a ballpark, and I'll never forget wanting to go to the 580 gift shop, where they sold home run balls, because I thought they would actually sell that ball there, LOL.
I live in Bellevue Kentucky, a short drive from GAB & work in downtown Cincy. So far, Opening Day has been the only game I've attended this year, but I'm sure I'll get to at least a couple more.
I've not met anybody from this board, as I mostly lurk (only about 300-350 posts in a year and a half), but I really do enjoy the site.
The "UK" in my name is for the University of Kentucky (congrats to UK alumnus Steve Flesch for winning on the PGA tour today), which is where I went to school and I, of course, love their basketball & football teams (though I wish the best for all the sports.)
I also enjoy reading about the Civil War, which has always been a fascinating subject to me, and I enjoy working on genealogy as well.
