Thanks for the inside perspective, Team Clark.
Dante is one of my wife's all time favorites. When we lived in Chicago, my wife the Cubs fan scored us some bleacher seats for one of the Reds' series. We sat in right field because my wife and her friends were Sosa fans. Anyway, the bleacher bums were getting on Dante, singing "Dante's got a big butt!" (to the tune of "nya nya - nya nya - NYA nya" of playground taunt fame). Instead of ignoring the bums or getting ticked off, Dante started wiggling his ample behind in time with the taunts. At one point, he even did a little dance. It was at that point that my wife really started to like the Reds, and Dante Bichette in particular.
