Re: The Reds arent the same to all fans
That was wonderful.
You may not know it, but you are a shining example of the very best of Reds fans since their inception.
You hear stories of the Big Red Machine and have vague memories of the 1990 team, but what you've experienced is exactly what most Reds fans since 1869 have also experienced.
The fact that you love them regardless is to your credit. It's what we all do.
It's no great trick to love a team like the '75 or '76 Reds. To love them when they test your spirit, that's the mark of a fan.
That was a beautiful and profound post. I really look forward to more from you.
You just made a fan of me.
