Today during lunch as soon as I walked into the gym someone (who knows I love the Reds) says "Damn those last place Reds suck". Then him and I began arguing about the Reds and Braves (I've mentioned this in another thread). Soon the other Braves fans jump in. I hear "When's the last time Griffey's finished a season?" I reply "Whens the last time Andrew Jones been close to 600 home runs?" Then another ignorant Braves fan interjects and says "Griffey's never even finished a whole season." So I bring up the fact that he had back to back 50 homer seasons so he must've been pretty damn good to do that without playing all year. Another guy jumps in and says "Griffey has to sit the bench every time he breaks a toe nail." Of course I defend Griffey yet again and say "When you're almost 40 then see how your body feels."
I hate being the only Reds fan, in what seems to be, the whole school. After today I hope to God that the Reds go to the playoffs even more than I did before.
Share your stories of being the outcast Reds fan. I know I'm not the only one.
