    I agree completely! I love me some Vault Zero! If you drink soft drinks and haven't tried it, you oughtta. Be warned, though, it's an acquired taste to some extent. It reminds me of a recipe the Coca Cola company came out with in the mid 70s called Kick-A-Poo Joy Juice. Anybody remember that short-lived product? I liked it as a kid.

    Down here, you can experience Big Red. Stains your clothes indelibly and tastes like cough medicine - to me anyway. And yet the stuff flies off of the shelves.

    Question for Michael... How is Mello Yello better than Mountain Dew? I seem to remember the two being very similar.

    I also miss Kick
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    We may not be able to save the Reds but, by God, we may be able to save Mello Yello!

    Go!
    Don Juan did pursue "windmills" of a fashion, if you're in favor of bizarre, nonsensical euphamisms for the female of the species...

    This should be on the 2007 Redszone T-shirt!
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Gee thanks, Kitty. Now I can't either.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    The Yello is a true citrus drink whereas Dew is sugar water packaged as citrus flavored plus most dentists agreed (at least in the 80s) that Dew was the worst soda for your teeth, without question.

    I'm not saying that Vault should go either but I don't see the point of using (yet another) energy drink as a replacement. How many energy drinks does the marketplace need anyway? Vault and Yello are completely different and there's plenty of room for both.

    I hate Mello Yello, I always thought it tasted like a suicide of 7up and Mountain Dew. Let it go, let it go.

    Now if you want to make a real difference join the campaign to bring back Crystal Pepsi!

    http://www.petitiononline.com/clear/petition.html
    Rumor has it Van Halen wrote "Right Now" as the anthem for the release of Crystal Pepsi.

    I've never been able to confirm or deny that trinket of information.
