    So you guys are the sub-shop version of the Ramones.

    Mine's easy. Name is Rich and I'm a - surprise! - Reds fan. Brilliant in its simplicity, really. Or maybe just really lame and unoriginal. You be the judge.

    I guess I'm from the Joseph School of Internet Handle Naming. And, no, I don't like Heath Bars.

    My username is obvious now, but I picked it honor of the original sundeck/moondeck at Crosley. As it turned out, they reproduced that area at the GABP, which I thought was kind of cool.

    Reds (the team)

    Man (as opposed to woman)

    Rick (as in Richard)

    Complicated stuff...... creativity is not my strong suit.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I considered "Johnny Ottoman", but I didn't want people thinking I was Turkish or something.

    I was almost "Johnny Chaise Lounge", but that was a bit too ostentatious.

    "Johnny Sofa" or "Johnny Couch" just didn't have the right verbal rhythm.

    I followed the Reds since about 68 and as far as I'm concerned 1975 was the best summer of baseball ever, followed closely by the best World Series Ever! AND, I'm a RedsFan!

    I'm still not certain.

    Mine was a rejected band name. I just like the sound of it. It originally came from my friend overhearing a conversation between two elderly Quaker women in Pennsylvania, during which one of the women misunderstood the other.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    When I was a student at the U. of Louisville I worked in the kitchen of a restaurant to earn extra cash, and over the course of that year there I got to know the insane dishwasher. He would take what he called "beer breaks." And of course his beverage (though not necessarily his beverage of choice--merely the exigencies of poverty forced upon him) was the incomparable Falls City Beer.

    And like me, it's undrinkable and unpalatable. Here's to beer breaks.
