30 years old. Currently living 10 mins to the Beach in Virginia. Grew up in Wapakoneta, OH, about 45 mins due North of Dayton. Went to school at the Univ of Toledo, graduating in 1996. Moved to Raleigh, NC, got engaged and then the job moved us here. Golden Retriever named Casey, Collie named Griffey and grey cat named Rose. Currently sitting in the Reds room, a finished room above our garage, filled with Reds stuff all over the place. Getting ready to watch the Reds on the new big screen...HD tv is great!
Been a Reds fan all of my life. As currently being debated on another thread, I refer to the Reds as MY TEAM. Also, a die hard UM fan. Root for the Bengals, but nothing like the passion that I have for the Reds/UM. My life actually revolves around Sat. UM games and Reds games. It is really sad...fortunately, I've been this way my entire life, so it's no surprise to the wife when I feed her the reason why we can't do a dinner date on a Sat when the Reds have a 7:05 game.
Nothing really else...my aunt married John Candelaria when I was a kid...now divorced...so I remember playing ball with the Candyman...had to have married him for his money, cause he had a face only a momma could love.
Also, somehow have some relationship to former base coach Tommy Helms, so he got me down on the field in the late 80's. Somehow my Grandma knew him or something if I can recall correctly.
Have been on this board since it moved from the cincy.com mess. I am here everyday and count on this site for intelligent exchange of information about my team.
