    What Are Your Plans For Opening Day 2013?

    Are you going to be watching at home, going to the game, taking radio to work or going to a bar to watch it etc?

    I am taking April 1st and 2nd off.

    For the second year in a row, I am going to have a get together at my house. I will have a TV setup on the patio with cornhole boards, BBQ, hot dog rotisserie, rice cooker full (in honor of Choo) and a big cooler of beers. It is BYOB but some people tend to forget. I do have some Reds shot glasses for when a good play happens.


    The 4:00pm game is cool because a few of my friends can visit after work. Last year, it went on until about 10:30pm with the firepit going. I am glad I had the next day off.

    It is for sure a holiday for me,

    well, switch Dr. Pepper to a warm bottle of Diet Cola from Sodastream. only one Dr. Pepper left and the last soda always goes to my folks

    but, the rest is accurate!

    My daughter and I are leaving in about 15 minutes. I got the typical wife eye roll this morning when I said "Life begins again today!"

    Is ESPN carrying OD this year?

    I never work opening day. not once in the last 24 years.

    If the game is nationally televised (ESPN) i'll be sitting at home watching.

    I believe someone posted in a thread a while ago that ESPN is not covering the Reds on opening day this year.

    I'll be at the game with a friend. As usual, it'll be a day of bar-hopping downtown before the game with the first drink - as always - at Arnold's.

    As for me, I just bought my tickets tonight - the little lady and I will be enjoying the Reds opening up 1-0 from section 108, row V.

    This will only be my second Opening Day at the park, my first was in 2005. Hopefully this one is just as awesome.

    DVR'ing the game and hoping I can be caught up by the end. I am taking on a film project and part of that includes shooting time lapse footage of GABP filling up on Opening Day.
