    A giant. I can barely remember Reds baseball without Joe -- all the way back to the 60s. I wouldn't follow the Reds the way I do if it hadn't been for his enthusiasm in the booth and fondness for the players. The PBP guys got the spotlight, but my ears and heart were tuned to Nuxhall.

    He deserves a spot on the sunlit diamond in the sky.

    So can any of you who know how to find those old newspaper clippings find a write up of Nuxhall's debut on 6/10/44? I don't have a clue how to do it.

    Man, I knew yesterday when I heard pneumonia....

    My favorite memory is still the Star of the Game after Tony Perez hit a game winning homer in the first game of a DHer to beat the Giants, 14-13. Tony says "I heet the baw good, Joe!"

    And who can forget the call of Joe Oliver's grounder just inside the line that scored Billy Bates from 3rd, hearing Joe give the "And this one belongs to the Reds..." in his own way.

    What a great announcer and by all accounts a great man. Goodbye Joe.

    Prayers for Joe's family.

    Thanks for sharing him with Reds fans all these years.

    For me, Joe was the emotion of the game. Marty did a better job of describing what was going on at the moment, but Joe was the emotional barometer. Grandpa and I couldn't help but get alternately excited or upset right along with him. Grandpa used to talk to Joe like he could hear him too...and the weirdest part was that most times Joe would say something that almost seemed like he did hear. His voice will always remind me of those summer days with Grandpa that I thought would last forever...and the seasons where even when the Reds were down 2 runs in the bottom of the ninth, you didn't dare give up...because they always found a way to come back. It was almost as if Grandpa, Joe, and I willed them to do it.

    Thanks for the memories, Joe! Say Hi to Grandpa for me, will ya?

    My grandfather got me hooked on the Reds around 1980. After some problems in my family I ended up moving in with him in '82. My grandparents were diehard fans, but my grandfather was who really got me listening to the game. He hated watching it on television. We'd sit on his patio in Winton Place, drink Sprite and rail against the opposing team. Especially if it was the Dodgers. My grandfather reminded me of Joe, and when he passed away, Joe reminded me of my grandfather. I don't have much family left, and this is one more link to my home that is gone. As much as I harp on Marty for how he does his job, he's all that I have left to remind me of home, to remind me of sweltering summer days on my grandfathers patio drinking sprite.

    g'bye Joe.

    Check out Joe in this video on YouTube. A fun moment at Oktoberfest.
