    What did you think of Marty and Thom's debut?

    Pretty simple question. Sure it's only one game, but what are your initial reactions to this new broadcast team?

    Re: What did you think of Marty and Thom's debut?

    I voted loved them, but mostly because 'I liked it' wasn't an option. I think it's going to be pretty darn good honestly, but I can't love a duo after one ST game.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I'll second that. I didn't vote though.

    They weren't bad.

    Thom seemed a little too loud at times. Melodramatic, particularly for a game on March 1.

    Brantley was a pleasant surprise.

    You're right, Joseph....I should have added a couple other options to the poll.

    We'll know for sure when he starts making random clanking and swooshing noises.

    Maybe Scooter will make a special guest appearance.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    have to call Tom's partner "Dad" this year.

    think they were emotionally high and will, hopefully, tone it down a notch.

    I like Brantley.

    Marty seemed less grumpy. Not sure if it was because of Thom or just the first game of the spring. Even though JB pulls out some interesting diction from time to time, he can bring some insights on pitching that have been missing.

    Re: What did you think of Marty and Thom's debut?

    Marty: And game 1 for this broadcast crew. I am not a sentimental person; I don't get all choked up. But I will ask your forgiveness if I can be a bit sentimental today because I remember vividly 43 years ago when this young man was born at University Hospital in Chapel Hill, NC when I was a student down there. And now we fast forward 43 years later and I still have a hard time believing that Thom Brennaman is sitting next to me and getting ready to broadcast his first game as a member of the Reds radio broadcast crew. I am just a little bit choked up about this whole thing.

    Thom: You need a breather there old timer?

    Marty: As I said a million times, this is a dream come true for me...this is just overwhelming for me.

    Thom: Likewise for me dad.

    God I wish I would've heard that. I didn't get to tune in till the 5th inning.

    It was all good; I listened to every minute (with the thunderstorm this morning and the Reds on the radio today, it's beginning to look a lot like spring!).

    The Brennaman's were truly excited and happy to be on the air together, and it showed. Brantley was excellent, and I was prepared to not like him, from his work on ESPN.

    I can't wait to hear more.

    Re: What did you think of Marty and Thom's debut?

    I usually don't listen to the games on the radio, so it was all fairly new to me, but I thought they did a pretty good job. The game seemed to run pretty smoothly and the fact that the innings were flying by probably helped them a bit.
