My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!
I used to think Issac Curtis was the definition of "cool" when I was a youngster. A cool and quiet cat who burned many a defensive back. And anyone my age or older definitely remembers the Issac Curtis spike after a touchdown reception.... spiked behind the back with one hand before coming to a stop in the back of the endzone. Nothing like today's antics, but a signature move that was... "cool".
Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.
Isaac was THE MAN. He didn't do much showboating, but he could at times, at least by that day's standards. I remember one game where he got behind the DB on a fly down the sideline and Anderson laid the ball out there perfectly and hit him in stride. Isaac held his left hand behind his back and reached out with his right hand and gathered the ball in as easy as can be and went into the endzone, all the time with his left hand behind his back. I'd like to know what was said earlier in the game that he responded to in that way. Anyone else remember that one?Originally Posted by RedFanAlways1966
I'll make a bid if Isaac promises to sing his disco/funk anthem from 1981, "Bengals #1."
