Uhm. Okay. We'll be needing to get that Barbie backpack from you when you have a chance....
Yea, yea... I know. But I am from upstate NY originally. I admitted this once before, but nobody called me on it. I was surprised.
I love baseball, but only got to see the Yanks once a month... a treat for myself and anyone I could drag along with me for the weekend (4-hour drive plus lodging plus food, not to mention the tickets). Mostly, it was my daughter.
When I moved to Cincinnati twelve years ago, one of the first things I did was buy weekend season tickets. Are you kidding me? A major league baseball team in my own back yard! I thought I'd died and gone to heaven!
And, when you go to so many games (plus those I attended when in town on business prior to the move), well, I guess you could say that I became a Reds fan by osmosis. It was impossible not too. Not only that, but as you all now know, I'm not just a Reds fan.... I'm an AVID Reds fan (or is it rabid?).
I'm not sure which is more devoted, a lifelong fan or a convert!
Now, back to the intent of this thread: Adam Dunn said something about the Reds fans getting on him when he threw a ball into the crowd during the Cubs recent visit. He said something like, it would be hard to hit a Reds fan because they were outnumbered so much that it looked like a sea of blue. He then added that probably most of them would be back in their Reds gear after the series ended. I think there's something to that.
