Re: Is it ok to do this?
Born and raised in Cincinnnati. I was a kid when the BRM was around. I started collecting baseball cards as a kid in 1969 and that's when I began following the Reds. I remember being crushed when Lee May and Tommy Helms trade was announced. That trade became a very important lesson to me about baseball. Joe Morgan was my favorite player for a long time. I remember Dad waking us up to take us to the airport because the Reds were landing soon from the road trip portion of the World Series. My grandma loved the Reds. She would go to every double header she could, and she always stopped at the store before hand to buy the biggest bag of peanuts she could fit in her suitcase of a purse. She was, as I realized later, as infatuated with the Big Klu as creek is with Dunn. I can still hear her talk about how big his arms were. I learned about Klu from her, as he obviously out of baseball by my time. Marty and Joe being on the radio no matter what we are doing outside or in a vehicle is just a part of life. The Reds are my get-away from my everyday stressors. Oh and my baseball cards that I collected as a kid, I left most of them at home when I moved out, thinking they would be safe, Mom gave them to a neighbor kid. I still have a black and white 3 x 5 glossy photo of Pete Rose that is signed from then. The dozen or so cards that I took with me, my kids have.
