    The Good Stuff about being a Reds Fan

    Well atm being a Reds fan is a little frustrating so I'm going to look on the bright side. Here are some things past and present that are good about being a Reds fan.

    1. Josh Hamilton (numerous reasons)
    2. GABP (super facility)
    3. Cincinnati Chili at the games.
    4. Nice uniforms
    5. Starting Pitching has been pretty good
    6. Ryan Freel (110% all the time)
    7. Ken Griffey Jr. (every swing of the bat seems to break some MLB record)
    8. Bronson Arroyo (pitches well and reminds me of Shaggy from Scooby Doo)
    9. Billy Hatcher (Bazooka Joe bubble blowing champion)
    10. Jerry Narron (hasn't completely lost it on TV yet during any of the bad relief appearances)
    11. Marty and Thom (while at first they seemed overly critical, now I find myself glad they are saying what I'm feeling )
    12. Gold Star Chili's cheezy commercials ( who are these bands and are they performing for free Chili ? )
    13. RedsZone
    14. Watching Todd Coffey run to the mound
    15. Marge Schott isn't the owner anymore
    16. 5 World Championships
    17. The Big Red Machine
    18. Opening Day in Cincinnati
    19. We're not Cubs or Pirates fans.
    20. A bad day at the GABP is better than a good day at work.

    Great post. I suspect that someone will post The Bad Stuff about being a Reds fan, soon.

    Will post the bad stuff? 95% of the threads are the bad stuff, but it's pretty much expected the way things are going. If most of the threads were about how everything is going fine, I think that would be just as annoying.

    Sometimes I miss the days with Marge running the show. The Reds always seemed to be competitive at a time when there were only two divisions within the N.L.

    Excellent list. I have noticed that Jerry seems to be gritting his teeth when things start going bad. Hope he has dental insurance. I'd take Coffey running to the mound off because it just seems like so much showboating, but to each his own. I'd replace it with seeing the Reds museum.

    Coffey running to the mound makes me smile. Not sure if it's because of his intensity or the way he runs.

    If that's the 6th best thing about the Reds fan, then we are in worse shape then I thought.

    Good post.

    #7 is my favorite. It is fun to watch as Junior passes a Hall of Famer with every swing.

    My wife has also commented that Arroyo looks like Shaggy. LOL

    12. Gold Star Chili's cheezy commercials ( who are these bands and are they performing for free Chili ?
    I don't know who I like more, The Newbees or Buckra. Buckra's lyrics give them a definite edge...

    I always appreciate the silver lining, but who/what is atm? I'm thinking it may be a typo but I can't figure out what you meant to type and now I can't let it go...

    The Reds are currently battling the Washington Nationals for the worst record in the NL. Negativity can be expected during a season like this one.

    That said, good thread. I like the original list.
