    Who's going to opening day and how long have you attended?

    I will be there again this year and it will be my third straight year.

    My first year was the game Reds vs Mets!
    What a game!
    Anyone... Joe Randa's walk-off HR!!!

    Hope this year will be the year!

    This will be my 5th Reds Opening Day in a row. I went to a couple back in the 70's.

    I went to about 10 White Sox Opening Days back in the 80's, but they weren't the party that the Reds are.
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.

    If I get tickets, this will be my 9th Opening Day. My 5th straight. The only one I've missed in the last 9 years was in 2002.
    The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.

    IIRC this will be my 6th or 7th Opening Day (I missed a few). Went to my first in 2000.
    2014 Reds record when I'm attending: 23-18 - FINAL
    2014 Dragons record when I'm attending: 2-1 - FINAL

    This will hopefully (still need tickets) be my 10th out of the last 11...missed the opening of GABP due to being still stuck in Sarasota at Sarasota Hospital with an emergency appendectomy. Went down for Spring Training on a Sunday, and ended up in the hospital the next day...was in the hospital for 12 days due to complications. Had to watch it on ESPN from my hosital room.

    Does anyone else feel like there are a lot of fans that go to the game, then leave by the 5th or 6th inning just to say they were at Opening Day? I hate that...I was there last year until the last out, and the Reds were getting drilled.

    If I can get tickets it will be my 10th out of the last 11 years (missed last season).

    I can never get tickets with that stupid "online waiting room" thing.

    I have been to opening day for the past 10 years at least, with the exception being in 2004---and before 1997 I went to each one between 1988-1995...I will probably be there this year whether I have tickets beforehand or not...me and a bud got lucky buying tix at face value from a guy at the end of a horribly long line ...he decided he and his kid would go to Newport and watch the game on TV...we got lucky and got in to gabp right before first pitch..

    I'm going to try to get tickets like I always do. I've tried for 3 years, and been succesful twice.

    I went to the first game ever at GABP, and watched the Pirates hammer us. It was still a great time.
    My second was the Joe Randa game as well vs. the Mets.

    I didn't go last year.

    Just keep hitting refresh by yourself and you'll nomrally get it. Just keep constantly doing it, don't wait for it to do it by itself.

    I am if I can get tickets. My first OD was in 1991, I think, and I've missed 3 since if memory serves me. I paid the big bucks a couple times on ebay.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.
