It's not really baseball related, but for the past year, I've really enjoyed reading what ya'll have to say here in Redszone. Reds fans have to be some of the most knowledgeable baseball fans anywhere, and it shows tremendously here. I don't post a lot, but I read nearly every thread and enjoy the banter.

Would it be ok to ask everyone to tell a little about themselves? Where you're from, what you do for a living, how many are old enough to remember the BRM, family? hobbies? stuff like that..

I know a lot of you live in the Cincy area and know each other personally, but some of us only know you from what you type on here. Hope this isn't too intrusive.

As for me, I live in the Charlotte NC suburb of Gastonia, but I lived the first 28 years of my life in West Virginia. I work for a plant that manufactures Freightliner truck parts. I was a teen through the glorious '70's and I get to Cincinnati every year to watch a series. This year. it's the Pirates at the end of June. My other passion is running. I was in Cincinnati 3 weeks ago to run the Flying Pig Marathon in the cold rain!

Let me know who you are! please!
And Go REDS!
