    Best Reds game you've attended

    After Watching tonight's Red's Rewind on FSN (the Red's 9 run comeback in the 8th and 9th innings, with Dunn's walk-off grand slam from 2006) got me thinking about the best Reds game I've attended.

    It has to be Opening Day 2005. The Reds went into the bottom of the ninth down 6-4. Adam Dunn belted his second homer of the day (2 run shot) off of Braden Looper to tie the game, and in the next at-bat, in a 3-2 count, Joe Randa won it with a walk-off blast.

    It was unlike anything I've experienced at GAB... Strangers were hugging each other and throwing their 6 dollar beers into the air. It was a great game to attend, especially on Opening Day.

    What's your best memory at the park?

    I was at that opening day game too. It's right up there. I was at Pete's #4192 game, so I guess it'll have to get the nod.
    As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.

    Opening Day 05 and Dunn's walk off grand salami for me. Those were 2 great finishes.

    Oh so many to choose. Maybe a couple of years ago when Larkin was still around he hit a walk off home run, and being he was my favorite player it was pretty sweet. Especially since I got the lucky chance to have seats right on the Reds dugout. Can't remember who we were playing.

    Watched Wily Mo Pena hit a 530 foot shot and take one away too, that was pretty cool. Saw a LaRue walk off as well.

    Got me thinking of Billy Bates, so I checked his wikipedia entry. I'm sure this is old info for most, but I thought it was interesting. Talk about going out with a bang!

    "Bates made his Major League Baseball debut with the Milwaukee Brewers on August 17, 1989, and appeared in his final game on October 18, 1990, when he scored the winning run for the Reds in Game 2 of the World Series. He never made another appearance in the major leagues."

    the best one i've ever been to was the phillies game last year, when hatteberg homered with 2 outs in the 9th to tie it, and then phillips got a walk off single in the 10th, that javy was almost forced out at the plate on, lol.

    I was at a game where Deion Sanders plowed an Astros catcher (I think it was Scott Servias at the time). The crowd was chanting "Deion, Deion!" when he scored the run. It was a pretty cool moment.

    My two favorite are Wily Mo's bobblehead night, and when David Ross hit the walkoff against the Cardinals. I'll tell you one thing, GABP was electric before both hits. It's almost like we all knew it was coming. Two great games.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.
