    In search of Ira Landis

    Hi. I'm not a Reds fan, so pardon the intrusion. I am looking for an old friend who is a Reds fan. As noted in the thread title, the old friend's name is Ira Landis. Another old friend and I were talking baseball earier in the year and we wondered "what ever happened to Ira Landis?".

    I posted a similar message to this one at the official(for lack of a better word) Reds message board at cincinnatireds.com at the beginning of the season and got no response, so I did a Google search for more Reds chatter and it led me here.

    So, if you are Ira Landis or know Ira Landis, tell him Keith(me, a Tiger fan) and Gary(an Indians fan----booooooo) were wondering where he is and how he's doing. I can be contacted at toledotigerfan@hotmail.com.

    Thanks!

    PS---You guys aren't that far from contending. As the Tigers proved this year, great improvement can happen quickly. You guys hit a lot of home runs, but don't score that much and you need a reliable starting pitcher(not an innings eater, a winner). Hang in there. Maybe a Reds-Tigers World Series will happen in 2007.

    I might be able to find Ira Joe Fisher.

    They are still searching for Bobby Fischer.

    Bump. I won't bump this forever. I'll bump it a couple times this weekend and then let it drop.

    We need more clues!
    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!

    Clues, hmmm. Well, he had dark hair, he wasn't much taller than a table, often wore a green shirt with wide black stripes, and hung around with an animated dog and fake fruit. But where in the hell would I find someone that looks like that?

    anybody writing this down in their handy, dandy, notebook?
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    Bump. Spring Training is here and perhaps the long sought after Ira Landis is at this board looking for good news about his Reds. I'll bump this a few times until the season starts and let it drop after that. Thanks!

    This board could use some favors. Not sure about this one.

    Because, y'know, it's not bad enough that I have to hear this at home, but now I can't escape it at the office either?

    Bump. Hi again. I'm back for another search for the elusive Ira Landis. Spring in near, baseball is here, so I'm hoping again that Ira now has a computer and hangs around Internet message boards. Perhaps he is slow to get into the Internet. I have the same e-mail address I used to register, so if you're Ira or if you know Ira, send me an e-mail. Thanks again! I'll bump this a couple more times as we get near Opening Day.

    I understood The Usual Suspects the first time through.

    This, not so much.
