Just signed up today, I was googling and I think I found a great site. I've been a Reds fan since 1980.
Not really "new" here, but I have read the forum since its inception in 1999 and remember well all the vitriol on the cincinnati.com forum when the Griffey trade rumors were so intense. Hard to believe that was 12 years ago. I used to post (here and on cincinnati.com) under the moniker of Wade Rowdon, but my login information for that account has been lost for many years. The recent trades have me thinking that this is the best Reds team we've seen in many years, and so I thought this an opportune time to rejoin as a poster. Looking forward to it!

Welcome back Wade.
I remember reading your posts years ago.
I run two storefronts now, one being Los Rios Group which I guess is pretty well known. Im not to happy with its level of quality right now and i need to update the writeups. My other is Gemballa Avionic Development, its a brand new store and at the moment offers four products. I will expand it but slowly, as it takes time to get the high level of quality I would like in my products
Id also like some help designing some of my new products for the second store.
I'm new to the site, joined yesterday. I'll be 30 this year and I grew up about 60 miles east of Cincinnati and have been a Reds fan most of my life. I still have a bit of family around the Cincinnati area but I live in Los Angeles. I married into a closet Reds family as my late father in law had a signed Pete Rose bat and ball I didn't know about until after his passing (currently hanging on the wall in my office next to a 1978 Big Red Machine pennant a co-worker gave to me when he found out I was a Reds fan).
I follow the team as much as I can and watch every game I can via MLB.tv. Looking forward to seeing the Reds play the Dodgers and the Padres when they make the journey west.
Welcome to the site. Although you're not near Cincinnati, consider yourself lucky that you're near Dodger Stadium. I love it there.
Yeah, my wife and her family are big Dodger fans (my father-in-law was really an all around baseball fan and remembered hating the Reds being a Dodger fan in the 70's but still had respect for the team).
Dodger Stadium is pretty cool, but I'd take GABP anyday. :-)
Just joined and this is my first post.
I am a born and raised Cincinnatian from the Mt. Washington area. Life-long Reds fan. Thanks for having me, and GO REDS!
Joined today and this is my first post. From around Louisville, Ky area and have been a Reds fan as long as I can remember. I currently live in Clarksville, TN and catch all the games on Fox Sports.
Jimmy Hendrix and Little Richard! Welcome!
Hi. I was searching for a site like this, and this one seems to be very well-run, clean, and respectful. Thank you for that! I actually am not a Reds fan; I'm a Pirates fan. But, I have a lot of respect for the Reds. Mostly, I was curious what fans of other teams were saying about the Pirates this year. I found a couple of threads where some of your board members posted some things about the Pirates, and I was surprised at how favorably you view them. I'm cautiously optomistic about them, personally. But, more than that, I was really surprised by how well some of you knew the Pirates system. I'd say that the posts that I read knew more about the Pirates minor leagues than most casual Bucs fans I know (not many, as I live in Iowa).
Anyway, I'm hoping to casually visit this board and get a read on what's going on in the Reds neck of the woods. I'm thrilled to be in a pennant race with you all, and I wish your team the best of luck the rest of the year. The second half should be a lot of fun!
I've read the site for years. I figured it was about time to get in on all the fun.
