I came across the old Cincy board in 1997 while I was going to school in southern Indiana and didn't have reliable access to ESPN or 700. I had to resort to the Internet to keep up with the Reds; I remember in those days I thought Jon Nunally was going to be the next great Reds outfielder. :MandJ:
I lurked for a long time, and I have continued to lurk a lot over the years.
I began posting sporadically on the Cincy Board beginning in 1999, under the user name Wade Rowdon. (Former Reds 3B prospect, for those who don't recall his greatness.) At Redzone I have been Dugout, RedsLex (excuse the bad pun), and now Pressbox.
I've had to change my username because I have a bad history of forgetting my password after changing my email accounts. Now that I seem to have settled on an email account and we can create our own passwords at Redzone, hopefully I won't have this problem again. Not to brag, but I like my current name quite a bit and I don't want to change it again.
I hope to become a Redszone subscriber in the very near future.
So now you know the rest of the story....
