    Well, we know the payroll slashing didn't go to cup making.....but they may have eliminated that department

Can you imagine the meeting that this dandy idea came up at? "OK, any ideas on what we should do for souvenier cups this year for Opening Day?"

    "How about we have some kind of tribute to Barry Larkin. It's his last Opening Day, you know."

    "Terrible idea! What's the matter with you? Anyone else?"

    "Yeah, it's Joe Nuxhall's last season, how about we have a cup with him on it. Fans just love Joe."

    "Stupid idea. Anyone else?"

    "Yeah, how about since we didn't sell all those cups we had from last year, we try to sell the rest of them this year? We sure as heck can't promote anything else besides the ball park."

    "Brilliant! You get a promotion!"

    Frank Bancroft is probably spinning in his grave right now.
    The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.

    You nailed it! The payroll slashing went toward the raise for that employees promotion!!

    No, no Chip, you've got it all wrong. It's was an Opening Day Classic Swag promotion. This way you can recall that refreshing sip of watered-down cola you took when the Atlanta Braves turned Jeff Austin into a pinata.

    At least now we understand the 2004 slogan "It's more than just a game"... behind the scenes in the Reds offices they have the rest of it posted, "It's more than just a game, it's a chance to pawn off last years stuff to the fans who pay $30 a ticket to see Jimmy Haynes pitch. Bwahahahahahahahahahahahaha."

    Has someone sent an email to the Reds FO about this snafu, yet?

    I care more about what's IN the cup, then what is one the outside!

    Now was the beer from last year also? :GAC:

    I do think they increased the price. Bring your pennies on Friday.

    Handicap parking increased too. Yes I know that's run by the city, but I would guess the Reds get a cut. It was $7 (I think) the last season at Riverfront, $10 last year at the GAB and $12 this year. Plus the garage under the GAB is at least twice the size it was last season (they opened up the area under the HofF side), so someone is pulling in some dough from that.

    Sounds to me like being invited to dinner and complaining about the filet mignon because the hostess served it on her everyday plates instead of the fine china. I hear what you're all saying, but man, that's some pretty serious nitpicking. Besides, since I know some of you are involved in business, perhaps they had new cups planned but the supplier didn't deliver. Maybe it was a mixup with Sportservice. In other words, maybe there's another explanation that you might seek by contacting the Reds if its really such a big deal to you instead of jumping to the conclusion that its because they are "cheap."
