    About the only thing I can compare this to was when Klu died. The city seemed to be mourning a king then. This time, it'll be like mourning God.

    I knew this was in the cards but, dern it, I'm still upset.

    CET did a series with Joe a few years ago. I wonder if they'll repeat it. They do have a nice blog entry on him this morning.

    It was like listening to your Grandpa do the games.

    It is like losing a family member.
    Who's on first?

    I always knew this day would come, but even as old as I am now, I always believed that Nuxie would live forever. Rest in peace, Joe. You will be missed.

    A sad day.

    Thanks Joe for the great memories from my childhood in the 70's until now.

    So many good memories of you, Nux. May you rest peacefully.

    May you round third, and head for HOME.

    My favorite memory of Nux:

    My dad and I saw him a few months ago signing autographs at the Reds HoF on Fan Appreciation Day. We waited an hour in line, so we were first and second. And when he gets there, my dad tells him he was old enough to remember Nux's playing days. Nux jokingly shushes him and tells him to keep quiet in case anyone else remembers.

    I'm glad I got to meet him, and I'm glad I get to share that memory with my dad.

    My thoughts echo everything everyone else is saying. It makes me sad thinking about all those nights falling asleep to the radio broadcast while the Reds were on the west coast. I was 10 years old when I met Joe for the first and only time while visiting spring training in 1983. I remember how cordial and warm he was with everyone. It didn't matter who you were, he treated everyone the same.

    He'll be missed greatly.

    I'm not ashamed to admit a bawled like a baby this morning listening to the various tributes on WLW and 1530Homer. I just don't think it could get any better going on the back porch with your dad in the summer and turning on Reds baseball with Marty and Joe...

    That's what it was all about.

    Many of us want to leave a legacy. Nuxhall did it.

    Thanks for unforgettable memories, Joe. You were a big part of my childhood and how I came to love the game.
