    Introductions Thread

    From paintmered,

    Hi all. As you may have noticed, we've been adding quite a few new members lately and have been using this forum to introduce themselves. While there is absolutely nothing wrong with this, it has cluttered the non-bb forum up a bit. All the threads have since been merged into this thread. To avoid confusion, I copied my original post here. So think of this as some pre-spring cleaning.

    So from now until the beginning of the season (the time of the year we receive the most new members), this thread will serve as the place to go "Hi. I'm new to Redszone and want to introduce myself.” And if this is your first time here, I fully encourage you to post here.

    So welcome to Redszone. We hope you enjoy your stay. Please have a look around and don't be shy to jump in the discussions. I also encourage you to take a look at our FAQ. It should answer many of the questions you might have. If you have additional questions, please feel free to PM me or any of the other mods. You can do this by scrolling down to the bottom of any RZ page and clicking on one of our names.

    Thanks. (and thanks gebby for allowing me to borrow your post)


    gebby's original post: I guess this place makes you intro yourself before you are allowed to post. Well, then, hello!

    Re: Hello?

    Introductions are not required.
    If they were our bandwidth would be mired.
    So post or not; it is your call.
    But post in rhyme or not at all.


    Makes all the routine posts.

    Then hopefully his answer is no.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Should we make new posters submit their resumes? They better have a cover letter.

    I'm sorry I've been posting and wasn't aware of the special requirements. My apologies, well here goes...

    1. Yes since late 70's
    2. The Reds had style and were successful plus they were on TV a lot. Also a fan of Red Sox and Royals (sigh)
    3. From TRF (champion of the oppressed and molester of nurses)
    4. 37 unless you're a young female then I'm 28
    5. Oklahoma (insert joke here)
    6. I am a Reds fan but I drink and take drugs because I am a Royals fan.
    7. Nyet
    8. Aren't they with TNA wrestling?
    9. When I was younger I was a roadie with Gallagher. It wasn't hard finding watermelons but God help you if there wasn't chamomile tea ready for him after the show. I was fired when I suggested adding actual jokes to his act.
    10. Wipe?
    11. No but TRF's testicles I would cut off in a heartbeat if it meant a championship.
    12. YES YES YES
    13. Who else but Ryan Freel? If you have to ask why, you are not a Reds fan.
    14. I would like to think class and dignity. But more likely irreverence and general snottiness
    15. He's never off the DL long enough for me to find out.

    I wanted to start a new thread introducing myself and "do it up right!", but this will do. I'm a medical salesman, living in Lexington. I've been married 2 1/2 years now (I'll post the pictures later), have two dogs (pictures to come later), love to play golf, and I'm enjoying seeing the Reds organization move in the right direction. My gut is telling me that this is not the year we make a splash, but it is coming soon. One more thing, I'm a Wildcat at heart. UK Basketball is my other sports passion. I'm sure some of you are the same, some may root for the Bearcats, others Dayton or Xavier, and others from all over the country. I look forward to posting here and can't wait to see our beloved Redlegs take home a pennant in the near future. The future of Cincinnati sports looks bright!

    Now, on to the questions:

    1. Yes
    2. Marty and Joe. Listening to them calling summer ballgames while sitting on the back porch with my great grandpa. Like Cawood Ledford at UK, Marty is truly the best, and we didn't need TV at grandpa's. I have very fond memories of these times. Me and Grandpa on the back patio, sometimes listening to the rain hitting the aluminum awning, sipping grandma's lemonade with mint in it, eating a hot dog, swinging a bat or acting like i was pitching, imitating the radio. I could go on...
    3. Can't recall. I've known about it, but never joined.
    4. 25
    5. Have lived in Lexington for about six years now. Originally from Northern Kentucky (Ludlow, Cold Spring, and Alexandria)
    6. No drugs. I like have a beer at dinner out or golfing.
    7. No.
    8. No.
    9. No.
    10. Both
    11. No. It'll happen. Our WS is more recent than anyone in the Central Division, so, we're good.
    12. A resounding YES!
    13. Austin Kearns. I played against him in high school (I even struck him out twice in one game, and have the box score to prove it). Just to talk about baseball, his trek up through the system, Lexington, high school ball, etc.
    14. Who knows? My take on things.
    15. No.

    Sheesh, I've been posting over on the RedsLive part of the site, and didn't even realize this was here- how rude of me!

    1. born and bred a Reds fan. My earliest memories as a kid were going to Crosley with my dad, coming in through the left field gate to the brightest, most wonderful shade of green I had ever seen. We'd sit down by the third base walkway, where the players would come out onto the field, and try to get autographs. My dad pointed out Wille Mays to me once, and told me to pay attention to him, he was the best player in baseball. Apparently, Dad was not as impressed as I was with Alex Johnson.

    2. I came across Redzone as a part of checking daily Reds blogs of other folks opinion on the Reds, and was amazed to find that there were other people who actually shared my angst and agony on a daily basis. I had come to hide my Reds habit over the years, as the past 15 or so years have not been kind to us Reds fans. I had been reduced to changing the Reds game on the channel when my wife and kids entered the room, because of the shame, like I was watching a porno or something. This support group has given me the courage to walk openly, in the daylight, and not be afraid to show some, any public interest at all in the Redlegs.

    3. I'm 45. I was 9 years old in 1970, and from then until the age of 19 just kind of assumed that every city had an awesome baseball team. I realize now, in my maturity, that I will never see those likes again, sadly.

    4, 5. I am from the west side of the tracks, and definitely drink too much beer, although I can no longer find Hudy or Burger anywhere. I firmly believe that ballpark food should be limited to pop, beer, peanuts, hot dogs, popcorn (but only in the carton that you can use as a megaphone), ice cream, and hamburgers. No fish tacos. Cotton candy is ok for kids.

    7. Never been a communist, but ironically, am red through and through. With a littel bit of orange in the fall and winter.

    11.Testicles? Sorry, but I'm all out. Gave one back in 1975 to get the first WS win in my lifetime, gave the 2nd in 1990 because I thought I'd never see another here in Cincinnati after the BRM days.

    I currently have 2 kidneys left, however. Am willing to donate for Fall Classic wins.

    12. Dunner? Love him. Hate him. But love him more than I hate him. We have an agreement: he can continue to strike out 190 times a year, as long as he continues to get on base 40% of the time. We've reached a happy medium with that compromise, and are very happy together.

    15 "Edmonds" are on sale during the Cardinals series for $1, as I hear it.

    Happy to be here, among kindred souls
