    Question

    Ok. I have been a Reds fan since I was born and never heard the Big Red Machine ever called the Great 8! Is this something the media came up with last week or have I been living in a box the past 40 years lol?

    When I first visited the museum/HOF at GABP (a must-do for any fan) two years ago, we had a great guide for the tour whose knowledge seemed truly encyclopedic. I distinctly remember him stopping beside the mural of the eight regulars on the main concourse and using the term "Great 8." Also remember that day seeing the signed photo they have in the store labeled that way.

    At the same time, I too have been a fan since 1975. And I don't recall hearing that phrase except in the past few years. So agree with powersackers. And think he/she has one of the best signature lines on this website.
