    I think you are right. Grande was with ESPN. If so, very ironic. If so... nice spot.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    How can you tell when the announcer is wearing that helmet?

    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!

    Perhaps it is no irony that was one of Bench's last cards as a player.

    Caption:

    "So Johnny, is there any way you guys can beat the defending 1982 World Champion St. Louis Cardinals? I think they are better than the Big Red Machine. They will be and are a dynasty And Ozzie is better than Davy."

    I have this card too.

    The bio and career stats are missing entirely from the back of this card. IN their place, it reads, "Johnny Bench, you know his story..."

    Bench looks like he's going to dive in for a kiss.
