    Guess what I just got for Christmas?

    Reds 75 WS Box Set! Woo Hoo. We just got together at moms and I was shocked as I know this set is quite costly. Has anyone seen it?

    I asked for it, but didn't get it. I plan to pick it up in the next few days. Let me know how you like it.

    I was 4 at the time so it's safe to say I don't remember this. I don't think I've seen any of the games - just the highlights. There's some pregame footage and interviews with the big Red stars so that will be cool.

    Is there a 1990 WS Box set? I would love one of those. I wasn't alive for the Big Red Machine, so it might be nice to actually "live" those moments - the greatest moments in Reds' history. Perhaps I could pop those dvds in from time to time during the upcoming season to ease what will no doubt be a lot of painful nights.

    I hadn't seen one. I was in college and that was a great series, but only 4 dvds in that one. SWEEP baby!
    Anyone let me know if they can't find the 75 DVD set.

    I got it too, the White Balance on the games at Riverfront (the only one I've seen so far) is a bit washed out. However I'm psyched to watch them again after all these years.

    got it as well - thanks santa - watched game one thus far and am enjoying it. Memories of the old game of the week with Tony Kubek...

    Cute side story...watching game 1 with my son (10), I am pointing out different players, Hall of famers, explaining Pete Rose, etc and Ken Griffey comes to bat...he remarks..."He's STILL playing??" Made me chuckle.

    If they release sets from 76 and 90, I will be buying those as well.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    I got it for my birthday in late November. My wife sent away for it from the States, as we live in Calgary.

    Re: Guess what I just got for Christmas?

    I got it too, and I have a question...

    At the end of game five in Cincinnati, the fans started a little chant around the seventh or eighth inning. It went something like "Blah...Blah...National League!"

    I can't figure it out, and it's been driving me crazy for three days.

    I also notice that the fans weren't standing with two outs like they do today, and have done since I was a kid.

    When did that tradition start?

    Johnny Bench's wife was extremely hot, too.

    Can't wait to see Johnny's smokin hot wife (from Ricky Bobby). Seems they aren't still together, but I'm not sure.

    In game five, she was wearing a tight red shirt with the words Johnny Bench emblazoned on the chest in sparkely lettering.

    Timeless pulcheritude, I tell ya.

    I got it. I love how it's teeming with extras. I really hope they do similar sets for 76 and 90.
