    I have the itch.

    Ok so heres the deal. Every year at right around this time I get the itch for baseball to start. I dont really know what it is, I just feel like I am going to go nuts waiting on baseball to get here. This year for whatever reason I thought I was going to be ok, but I think the National Championship game kind of got me ready for baseball.

    Anyways this year I was ready, I anticapated the problem before last season even started. My solution was to record last seasons Reds games on DVD then I would have something to at least watch again until the new season started. Well I have been doing that and while its nice its not really helping either.

    So I was kind of curious what the rest of you do. I know other people have to get this kind of excitement just anticipating the start of a new season with a clean slate. So what do all my fellow Redszoners do?

    If you have "the itch" try this...

    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    This year RZ has helped me get over the hump and not lose my mind. Also, my dad and I have watch a few of the 75 world series DVD's together.

    In years past, I've tried to just pretend that baseball didn't exist from September to March/April. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't.

    Good point.

    I have given thought to buying the 75 series on DVD, but I am kind of trying to go cheap right now. Also 75 was way before my time but I think that might make it all the more interesting for me to watch.

    Re: I have the itch.

    I'm getting it. I spent the early part of the afternoon down at GABP at a luncheon, tooks some BP in the indoor facility by the clubhouse and went through the HOF again.

    It was enjoyable. Although my schedule get all kinds of crazy during the summer....I'm looking forward to some baseball.

    This summer, you can get one of those packages; tickets to the game and a hotel room. That'll take care of all of it.

    Love wherever you like but usually the person you are with is the determining factor. : How's that old line go,...love the one you're with....(wherever you are).

    A girl was I dating back in the day went to see Stephen Stills in concert with her old boyfriend. All I kept thinking about was Stills singing that song at the show and how that just might spell trouble for me!

    Dude, it sounds like you were already in trouble.
