Wow, so many memories!
I got to see (in no particular order):
1) Pete Rose, Jr.'s first Reds game. Seemed like old times.
2) 1970 All-Star game. Had tickets for red seats behind the scoreboard but my brother and I decided to stand on the green level instead. People in front of me stood up as Pete rounded third and they blocked my view of the play at home. Thank the Lord for taped replays.
3) 1972 game 5 of the playoffs: Bench's homer and later Moose's wild pitch. I was hoarse from yelling for 3 days.
4) Hal King's homer in '73. There was a certain brashness, almost an arrogance, about the Reds in those days. After he hit that home run, it was simply understood around here that the Reds would win the division.
5) Pinch hitter par excellance Ed Armbrister getting a rare start against San Diego and hitting a couple of homers along with another hit I believe. The pitcher decked him the next time up.
6) In the early days of Riverfront the fans weren't shooed out of the stadium quite so quickly as today. I remember watching Pete take about half an hour of extra hitting after a Sunday game. Oh man, that guy was a truly DRIVEN individual.
And there were others, but I also think we can have 'memories of Riverfront' without actually being there. Watching on TV or listening to a radio broadcast can give you almost the same chills and excitement.
