I'm 51, married, 3 kids, and bore everyone here with stories about my family. Without them I'd be a bum.
Born in Berea OH (outside Cleveland) and had just started to bond with the Tribe when my family moved to Centerville in 1964. I was imprinted with the Reds during the summer of '64 when I experienced the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat during that season.
It seems like I had no choice in the matter, I've been a die-hard Reds fan ever since.
Watched the Reds in Crosley for a few years, all through the Riverfront years, had season tickets 1979-1984 when I was single and had a lot of money (boy did I pick the wrong time), and have been a part-time season ticket holder since '92. Hoping the GAB brings similar experiences and memories.
Been to the playoffs/WS in 1970, 72, 75, 76, 79, 90, 94, and 95. Also the AS game in 1970.
To paraphrase, one constant through all the years has been the Reds.
I work for a large computer storage vendor where they give me a computer lab and tell me to play and come up with stuff. My title on my business card says software architect but I'm just a techno-dweeb-nerd-weenie that likes to futz around with stuff. Someday, someone will find out what I do and show me the door.
