"You only have to bat a thousand in two things; flying and heart transplants. Everything else you can go 4-for-5."
Was at a bar tonight, and my wife and I were the only two people watching the Reds game (every other TV was turned to replays of last week's Cornhusker game...yes, seriously). Our cheering got so loud that every person in the place was looking at us like we were crazy.
I'm watching the game from the 9th inning on right now thanks to MLB.TV, LOL forever at George Grande talking about the difference between offense in baseball and basketball and football and using OJ SIMPSON as his football reference point.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
Incredible night for the Reds.

I was away tonight (high school football game--Cambridge won 27-25 at East Liverpool), but I recorded the game, and just got done watching!
FYI, East Liverpool is on the Pennsylvania border, and most of their people are Pirates fans. The PA announcer even gave an update during halftime, "In the fifth inning--Cincinnati 2, AND THE BUCCOS 4!!!" However, since he gave no other updates the rest of the game, I suspected that the Reds had come back and at least tied it up.
What a comeback!
