I feel like a little kid going 2 bed on Christmas Eve. #163 It's almost time 2 rough up the #reds for the 4th straight game. #Blackout #BUCN
Hope this is on the Reds bulletin board by tomorrow!!
I really really hope the Pirate fans show up tomorrow. I want the Reds to win, but I'll be disappointed if the fans fall flat.
I think the crowd situation could work against them. The pressure is on Pittsburgh. First playoff appearance in 20 years. Just swept the struggling Redlegs.
Rounding third and heading for home...
It looks like you may have posted a minute before the other post on this topic. Maybe they will merge the two.

I can't remember ever being more nervous for a game.
